Yeah, the STARS got spanked. But we only need to come away with 1 win in Denver and then defend the hell out of our home ice.

I'm not really sure who I am rooting for...probably the Avs though, they were my team when the North Stars were stolen

Damn Scott, I had you pegged as a Leafs fan.  Sorry about that.  Horribly sorry.  Were you one of the silent Sens fans in Rad74's poll?  

I'm a big Lalime fan, but his history has been riddled with hot seasons followed by cold.  Belfour I'm afraid will be the deciding factor in this series.  


Oooh, ooh, ooh.  Looky, looky who won ;D

I must have missed the poll.  I accept your apology though ;)

It was a great game tonight, and though Lalime didn't have to face much (17 shots) he played well, even with the diving save!

Patrick.... stay in your damn net!  

If Lalime can hold up, and the Sens defence can protect him we should be OK.  That being said, I look for TO to come out HARD on Saturday night.  That one should be tough.  If Ottawa can come home up by two man, that would be awesome!!

GO Sens!!!

The damn STARS lost again! Turco is great all season then sucks when he gets tpo the playoffs. Our whole defense stinks. When your offensive philosophy is to win games 2-1 or 1-0, then you can't give up 5 frigging goals!

Hope everybody's watching the Preds/Wings game right now. Both teams are really moving the puck right now, and if Nashville can keep this pace going into the 2nd period I think we'll definitely have a chance. I don't see how the Wings can maintain this pace much longer!

Have I mention I can't stand Hatcher??

Not likely is right.  Flyers are up 2 games to none.  Hopefully this is the year.

Go Flyers!!

Well my "rooting" jinx is in full effect this year.

The 16 teams in the playoffs on my rooting scale are listed here:

1. Dallas
2. Toronto (my Eastern Conference Team, this year)
3. St. Louis Blues
4. Montreal
5. Detroit (yes I know blasphemy)
6. Nashville
7. New Jersey
8. Vancouver
9. Ottawa
10. Colorado
11. Calgary
12.  Boston
13. San Jose
14. Tampa Bay
15. Islanders
16. Flyers

Again this is not who I think will win, in fact if my Jinx goes into full effect it will be a Philly vs. San Jose Final....these are who I am pulling for when I am watching 6-8 hours of hockey on the NHL CENTER ICE...

I'll be at the Dallas game tomorrow night, gotta love the fair weather fan, once the Stars went 0-2, the tickets became magically available from one of my buddies.

Just got back from Nasville's first ever home playoff game, and I have absolutely no voice left! Don't know how it looked on TV, but the crowd has NEVER been that loud in any of the games I've ever been to at any hockey game. Crowd really got behind the Preds, usually the Wings bring out a pretty loyal fan base here, but that wasn't the case tonight at all. Bring on Tuesday, we're on a roll right now!

I caught the first goal and part of the later portion of the game - the crowd was definitely going nuts.

Playoffs in almost all sports are so much more fun than the regular season.  The players are much more into it and thusly the crowd is too

I can remember sitting in the upper deck of Target Center with goosebumps beyond goosebumps in a T-Wolves/Seattle playoff game that hasn't been matched since.

Glad to see the Preds win one, in fact I wouldn't mind seeing them go on a Wild/Duck type of run here
