It really is going to be quite the exciting month or so for the rest of the season. I really hope my Avs can keep up the momentum they have going and take a playoff spot. They may be the youngest team in the NHL right now, but with the talent they have, they need to find away to get past that and make the playoffs.

Man those last two games sure hurt... Especially getting shut out by Columbus at home. That sucked. >:(

Well, at least you got to kick the crap out of us for two games in a row...  7-1?  We suck.  >:(

It's sad how much the Northwest has dropped off as a Division over the last few years. Vancouver hasn't had much real competition late in the season for the division title for a few years.

I still think the Avs can make a run for the playoffs this year. They did certainly make it a lot harder on themselves with that loss to Columbus though. If they miss the playoffs by a point or two, that will be the game that lost it for them.

For real!  I could make a push at 2nd or maybe even 1st place here if I can get strong play out of that guy.

Of course, I didn't know he was going to suit up tonight.  That's the second time that's happened this year, last time he scored 6.5 points, and 2.5 tonight.

It'd be nice...  Strong game last night, and 3 lines of terror. :)  Fun to watch.

I almost went to that Rangers/'guins game, but my brother decided to see the Hurricanes instead (cheaper). I know we both were leaning towards this game because of the Pittsburg's history, but at least we saw a win.  ;) My 3 year-old daughter enjoyed going, too, and talked all about the hockey game, though she wanted to go home part way into the 3 period. I was trying to get her to hold out, but she had school the next morning and the Rangers had just scored an insurance goal with about 5 to go, so I figured we'd go and someday she'll be old enough to be psyched to sit through a whole game...

of course, by that time we'll be back in Minnesota.  :P

Radulov potentially making his debut against the Pens and his home debut against the Jets. Made me think of Jesse and the old man.

Bloodbath in Chicago between the Blackhawks and Canucks.  Daniel Sedin was knocked out of the first by Duncan Keith which led to about ten different fights throughout the first and second periods.  Ultimately the Hawks won in OT, but that was a brutal game.

Can't wait to see these guys meet up again in the playoffs >:D!

I've seen enough from my Wild so far this year that I'm now expecting a 7-8 seed in the West and not just "at least we were better than last year".

*sigh*

Another shut-out loss over the weekend mathematically eliminated us from the playoffs.  And, I'm pretty sure we're not even going to be able to swing that "better than last year" part.   :'(

At this point though, with the second half of our season being pretty much an injury-ridden train wreck, I'll be more than happy to see them continue to tank out the rest of the year and increase the odds at the #1 pick this Summer.   :P

You'll get me for 9 games + the playoffs. 

Can I join your Smashville bandwagon?

I've guess moving to NY and adopting the Rangers as my team is a good move. One nice thing about NY is that  every night is hockey night... either the Rangers, Islanders or the Devils are playing.

freakin Stars.  Oh well. The Stanley Cup is still fun to watch without my favorite team.

I haven't seen much of the eastern Conference, so I don't know who will be cursed with my support. 

I know my wife will be wearing her Blues jersey every night they are on so I am probably stuck supporting them. 

I don't think the Stars had much of a chance anyway.  All their goals seem so accidental, not just pure scoring chances. The goalie is pretty solid but he has very little in front of him.
