Vancouver is incredibly lucky that they have home ice.  I can't believe they have a (good) chance to still win this series.

Alright, now that that other league is done, let's talk hockey.

Other league??  MLB is still going, NFL in in limbo...  other league?  Weird.

Re: Period 1 - man, Boston hates Vancouver.  And is it possible to give the Conn Smythe to the home-ice?  Seems like that has been the most important player so far this series...

Yeah I seriously cannot believe how badly Luongo has been in Beantown.  I mean, my god. 

Still, it doesn't help when the guy in his 40's is standing right in front of the goalies without anyone even attempting to remove him.  Tough to blame the guy in net when **** like that's going on.  I'm amazed we haven't seen some ankle slapping going on more often.

I dunno, that massive Vancouver outburst in Boston might have the Bruins worried.  Geez, they doubled their previous output from the other two Boston home games...

Rumor is that the Wild will get two games against the Manitobahs (home and road)...  hoping to make it to one of them for sure.

Re: Game 7.  Looking forward to seeing how this one plays out... also looking to see which team will make more stupid penalties - at this point it sure looks like one of them will do something stupid, give up a power-play goal and lose 1-0 in Vancouver.  :-X

I thought we got only one game, home OR away, against teams from the other conference?  I'm hearing we're playing out of the SE this year, so other side from MN? 

As for game seven I'm expecting an overtime 1-0 win.

I thought we got only one game, home OR away, against teams from the other conference?

The schedule allows for you to get a "home and road" with three teams from the opposite conference.  Last year our three East teams were NYR (home and road), CAR (two games played in Finland), and TBL (home and road).

24 = Six games against each of your divison teams
40 = Four games against each of the rest of your conference teams
18 = games against opposing conference - 1x each team, a second game against select three teams

There is some method to the madness for which teams you get (though the NHL doesn't fess up to it).  Example, we got NYR twice last year due to the Gaborik/Boogaard connection.

For Canuckia teams, the extra three games are almost always against the Canadian teams.  So, VAN, EDM, CGY all get to play twice against TOR, MTL, OTT every year.  I am guessing that since you guys are being added to the mix, they are adding us into that mix to balance things out at eight teams instead of seven. 

Or maybe it's just dumb luck since we were 'supposed' to play ATL twice next year and it just worked out?

Ah, interesting, thank you for the explanation.  Adding the Wild makes sense since you guys are Canadian and just don't know it. 

That's also very cool news going forward too because Toronto and Montreal are going to be huge draws in Winnipeg.  Prior to the Jets arriving in the WHA most kids grew up cheering for an original six team, most often one of those two.  When the Jets left most people adopted other Canadian teams to cheer for, so the Flames, Oilers or Canucks.  That makes next season good for offloading tickets.  But I am going to really enjoy our one year in the east with a couple of games against the Pens and three against the Caps at home.  Should be fun. 

It's interesting to see how many nuances I'm now missing in scheduling and other league stuff.  It will be entertaining learning all this stuff when it matters to "my" team.   :)

Congrats to the Bruins.  Didn't I pick that from the start?  ;)

I'm happy that they did it... and a shut out on the road no less.

I've had a soft spot for the old guy finally getting the championship at the end of a great career - Ray Bourque, Dave Andreychuk, Jason Kidd ( :) ).

I'm glad it went down this way - for Thomas too, the guy was phenomenal.

No coverage here of what's going on in Vancouver.  I'd kind of like to see.  I hate seeing people rioting over ****...  Light a couch on fire?  OK, fine...  Especially in college towns.  But when it gets to fighting, tipping people's cars, damaging people's property...  bleh.
