    Default 2017 NHL Playoffs - non Oilers

    The other great news is the Flamers are likely burnt toast. Not getting stupid luck this playoffs and down 2-0 in the series before it even hits Calgary. lol if they lose game 3. Going to be so much angst in Calgary. I might have to take a trip out there with Oilers gear on. I'm like that...

    Should be mentioned the Ducks managed to win this game without Fowler, Vatanen, and with another D also playing injured. The Ducks were basically running a close to AHL caliber D lineup due to injuries. The only reason they were ever behind in the first place.

    This am was hilarious on Global news. Apparently the Calgary Global station had technical issues and were watching Edmontons Global news telecast. The anchor, Shaye Ganam, starts the broadcast stating; "This could be a little awkward considering our weather guy is wearing his Oilers Jersey, The flames lost last night and are down 3-0 in the series and the Oilers are winning theirs.."

    lol at grinding Calgary in the Am telecast. The comic delivery was priceless.

    After 10 years of living with what was arguably the worst NHL franchise ever I remember very clearly coming up with reasons to justify blowing 4 goal leads before I stopped caring altogether. I understand how Flames fan feels today although they haven't scratched the surface of the pain we've felt here

    Great to see, hard to complain about the refs when you are given five PP's with the Ducks getting zero.

    Even funnier is I went to bed after the Flames were up 4-1. I hadn't even realized they managed to blow that lead at home playing a Ducks club with 3 starting D injured. So it was better than comic timing, it was simultaneously unexpected great news.

    I would like to see the Flames win some games and stretch this series out. I quit watching after they were up and thought it was a done deal.

    I too would like to see this stretch out, and even have Calgary win. The only thing sweeter than the Flames getting knocked out of the playoffs, is having the Oilers personally do it.
    And let's be honest, the entire league is drooling over the potential of a battle of alberta.

    So Calgary would have to win the next 4 games? I really don't see that happening.

    I have always cheered for the Oilers and whoever plays against the Flames, and that stance has never ceased. I don't give two effs if there's a Battle of Alberta or not.

    I always enjoy watching the Flames flop. I only ever cheer for them if it helps the Oilers in a critical situation (like a Calgary win will clinch the Oilers a playoff spot or something).

    Would have been nice if the Flames could have dragged that out for a game or two.

    Please, please do. I see this smugness all over Edmonton with their fans. We are obligated to return the favour.

    I'll also be swinging a replication of Harvey the Hounds tongue in the air ala McTavish. Really one of McT's better moments as a coach in addition to 2006 run. Or alternately I'll grab a tossed on the street bandwagon Flames jersey and start shredding it. Older fans will get that.

    After this round there will be eight teams left. Edmonton, Anaheim, St. Louis, Nashville, Pittsburgh, NY Rangers, Washington or Toronto, and Ottawa or Boston.

    Ottawa just advanced, winning Game 6 vs Bruins. They play NYR in 2nd round.

    Default With Nashville Predators, P.K. Subban gets the team he never had in Montreal

    Subban is in total beast mode for Nashville.

    I think when the Oilers beat Anaheim, Nashville might be a bridge too far. Will still be an absolutely amazing season (already is), but heck, Nashville look a great team at the moment.

    http://news.nationalpost.com/sports/...ad-in-montreal

    Subban has five points in five games during the playoffs. With the exception of Alexander Radulov, that’s more than anyone on Montreal’s roster scored in six games. Max Pacioretty didn’t even equal Subban’s goal total (1).

    Montreal certainly could have used that offence in the lineup when the team managed only 11 goals in six games against the Rangers. But one again, the narrative shouldn’t be about whether the Canadiens are worse off without Subban.

    Rather, it should be that Subban is better off without the Canadiens.

    Nashville is the team that Subban never had in Montreal. Like the Habs, the Predators also have an all-world goalie. But unlike the Habs, the goaltender is just one piece of the puzzle.

    Curiously Ottawa Soccer fans are always saying how poor the support is for FC Edmonton. Yet they can't even sell out for the senators in the playoffs. Tickets don't cost much in Ottawa either.

    It's hard for a Senators fan to get excited when they have to drive a long way to get to the arena.
    Edmonton first, everything else second.
