Title: NHL Playoffs 2018
Post by: Buffalo Budd on April 16, 2018, 10:00:09 PM
Surprised this thread hasn't been started.
There has to be a few paugers watching the playoffs.
Was stoked to see the Leafs snag a win tonight, Andersen's save at the end of the game was quite possibly the craziest I've ever seen.
Boston will take it though.
Jets looking good.
Caps can't figure out Bobrovsky.
Vegas still rollin'

Leafs in 6. Vegas will win the cup.

I love this Bruins squad. Iím in a pool with my brother in law, which will make me follow all of the series. Not that I wouldnít anyway.

Playoff hockey  :beers:

I feel bad for Washington and Ovie.  Such good teams for so many years, they just can't seem to get it done.  It's certainly not Ovie's fault.
Anderson's save last night was bonkers.
I don't think I can take it if Vegas wins and Bettman gives the old "They said hockey in Las Vegas would be a bad bet..." speech.
Anything but a threepeat and I'll be happy but I see either Boston or Tampa taking the east (bold prediction, I know). 
I think this is Nashville's year, though.

I'd like Tampa - want to see Ryan McDonagh get it - and also a better draft pick for the Rangers.
and that save was inane

Finally a Game 7.  Thought we'd have to wait until next round for one.

And if Boston wins, the 1 seed will play the 2 seed in each conference.  Just go back to the old format.

Brought to you by the league that airs its playoff games on the Golf Channel.

Unreal that the Bruins, a team that was 2 points away from being #1 in the East, will have to play #1 and #3 just to make it to the Conference Finals.  If only they had beaten Florida in Game 82...

Vegas was 150/1 back in June.  Now they're the favorites.  Crazy.

Vegas looks kinda done, which seems to happen in the Finals most years.  Would be a way cooler story if they can storm back and win a couple more...

Actually, that wouldnít be cool at all. Caps need to step on their throat and put them out of their misery.

having so much trouble even focusing at work today....been stoked for tonights game since yesterday afternoon....couldn't even sleep til 3 am after monday nights game...I really hope they close it out tonight. But it's not going to be easy, in vegas, with their backs against the wall, they're going to come out aggressive like they have each of these games, but if we weather that and score early and maybe take some of that energy away from the crowd, I believe we can do this....d.c. has been waiting a loooooooong time...

Absolutely. And what a game to close it out. Props to Vegas, but the Caps kept grinding away. They played the entire playoffs with a sense of confidence and weren't shaken by adversity as they have been in the past. I'm just happy for DC too, it's been 26 years since we've had a Championship.  :crazy:

OV is one of the top players in the league (Holtby too). Glad they got their rings
