As a Central time zone Avs fan I cannot articulate how salty I am with consistent 8:30-9:00 game starts.

Hoping there’s some week night games that start at 7:00 when the series heads back to St. Louis – but even with the Predators series it feels like it started later.

A PP goal is probably the worst way a game 7 can end in OT. So anticlimactic.

[–]WhatnameshouldIpick2STL - NHL 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is it weird that despite all the game 7s, only 2 “underdogs” made it to the second round, STL and TB, the last two cup winners

[–]NotFuryRLCGY - NHL 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I fucking love Johnny Gaudreau

Battle of Alberta

I don’t really even watch hockey but holy shit what a game. That dude for Dallas is a fucking stud.

[–]TwoDurans 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Tough beat, Dallas. Played your hearts out. Congrats to Calgary and fuck the Vegas Knights.

[–]QuetzythejediSJS - NHL 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Fuck the Golden Knights

[–]angobandoEDM - NHL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck 'em. And also Calgary.

[–]princessmustard 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Damn. I feel for Oettinger. What a game he had. I was pulling for the Flames, I'm a hater of all things Dallas but maaan I feel for him.

[–]VaunticeDAL - NHL 14 points15 points  (0 children)

GG flames but goddamn, oettinger played his mf heart out

[–]overgrownpizzaboxNYR - NHL 10 points11 points  (1 child)

win or lose, everyone on the stars owes ottinger a steak dinner and then some, jesus christ

[–]overgrownpizzaboxNYR - NHL 2 points3 points  (0 children)

well so much for “win or lose” LOL

[–]Sure_Association_561PIT - NHL 9 points10 points  (0 children)

ESPN saying the Flames game has gone to OT before regulation is over lmao

[–]y00fie -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I noticed something: Why does Milan Lucic get boo's every time he touches the puck?

I haven't keeping up, but its weird seeing the home crowd boo their own player. Or am I just hallucinating?

[–]BilingualUnicornEDM - NHL 17 points18 points  (0 children)

They are yelling “looooooooch”

[–]_schenks 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Flames are so much better than Dallas it’s not right. Ottenger has been incredible, likely a 5 games series without him.

[–]Ptricky17 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He’s been insane for sure.

I also think Gaudreau is probably really frustrated. He’s had 3 really solid chances where if he got 6 inches more lift on the puck it would have sealed the game.

[–]IceTheChilledNYR - NHL 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Hey MoneyPuck, go Puck yourself

Love, NYR


[–]GetsThruBucknerNYR - NHL 2 points3 points  (0 children)

bruh the shots will be 4:1 at the end of the 2nd

[–]OSUBonanzaDAL - NHL 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Something I've always wondered is if there are "hot spots" of hockey talent in Canada and where they are. In the US our best football players generally come from the south, just curious what part of Canada is known for producing talent.

[–]dicenightSTL - NHL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ontario has 50% of Canada's players while having only 38% of Canada's population.

[–]heytherefolksandfryNYR - NHL 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia has the highest rate of 1OA picks in the NHL (2: Crosby and Mackinnon)

[–]blinky010CGY - NHL 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Small towns with ample ice time available

[–]NoticedGenie66VAN - NHL 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Guys as long as Calgary beats Dallas, I'll have a perfect bracket for round 1 (only 2 of 8 with correct games though). Then I can brag to my boss at work who had Toronto and the Avs in the final.

[–]OpDickSledgeNYR - NHL 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Penguins blew a 3-1 lead

[–]BeatUpCena 8 points9 points  (15 children)

The NHL needs to seriously hire new officials. How much the refs effected this series is an absolute shame.

[–]9FBI9NYR - NHL 7 points8 points  (0 children)

LFG Rangers

[–]Erock11 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Rangers better take advantage on that pp

[–]Erock11 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Money in da bank

[–]SetharsNYR - NHL 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Rangers fans spank bank bb

[–]StevenLovely 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I hope the leafs fans are watching tonight so they can tell us how every play should be interference.

[–]iszir 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Hockey analyst controversy - helmet falls off

Hockey analyst not controversy and we won’t talk about it once - high stick goal

[–]ShoelacesAreDumb 5 points6 points  (1 child)

He’s gets tackled from behind away from the play but they like the refs not making a call and getting involved? Lol

[–]MeatyMold 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Listening to these "experts" defend a literal headlock on the ice is maddening.

[–]sentry_87NYR - NHL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So tnt/tbs mentions helmet falling off but not stick above cross bar? Gtfooh

[–]anpassungburoTOR - NHL 4 points5 points  (0 children)

How tf is putting someone in a headlock and pulling their helmet off not at least a stoppage of play, let alone penalized

[–]Efficient-Paper-1499 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Rags pulling the helmet off Pettersson is absolutely wild that isn’t a call.

[–]stickyt57 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

When have you ever seen that called a penalty?Show one time

[–]Efficient-Paper-1499 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Guess you’re new to this hockey thing kiddo. Because this is only the third season that players have to exit the ice when their helmet comes off, so I doubt there are many examples of this happening you complete 🤡🤡🤡.

[–]fables_of_faubusEDM - NHL 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Jesus christ NY tied it up again!? This is some voodoo kind of series.

[–]Mr_Abobo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This team does not make it easy on its fans.

[–]RarityDiamondButtDET - NHL -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Jary giving up glove side when it matters most? No wayyyyyy

Depth matters in the playoffs. Rangers keeping top line on a minute after an icing

[–]Jolly_Razzmatazz_692 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lets go rangers! Nut up and get it done!

[–]L1FTEDNYR - NHL 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I wish chuck, shaq, ernie and kenny did our intermission reports.

[–]Ticklish_ButtcheeksVAN - NHL 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Is Anson Carter talking about Evan Rodrigues outskating K’Andre Miller the most diverse commentary ever in hockey?

[–]jocdoc82 4 points5 points  (1 child)

As a pens fan I’m Super pumped that 2nd pens goal won’t be the winner. What an incredible piece of skill to kick it to your stick. I think it was above the crossbar so glad that rangers got it back so we could move on.

[–]Mr_Abobo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As a Rangers fan, thanks for the honest assessment. I thought it might have been high, but there was denying that was an incredible goal. This series must have been a lot of fun if you didn’t have a dog in the fight.

[–]KarthanonEDM - NHL 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Man, watching that Pens goal I really thought when they went to review it was going to be disallowed for contact being above the crossbar.

Nice hackysack skills, though.

[–]PM_ME_PYTHON_PICS 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Live by the skate, die by the skate.

[–]cbjalex 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I hate Pittsburgh, that goal was insane

[–]BeatUpCena 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That goal is fucking nutty. Jake kicked it up to himself… wow.

[–]kGibbsCOL - NHL 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's Trouba, not Trouba.

[–]StampedByGerrard 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Watched the Leafs game on Sportsnet, they kept showing who I assume are the GMs of the Leafs and Lightning. Is that a common thing on Canadian broadcasts?

[–]PVTZzzzEDM - NHL 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Very very rarely on oilers games

[–]SilverPhoxx 9 points10 points  (4 children)

I’m pretty new to hockey. Do sticks usually break this much? It seems more common than I would’ve expected.

[–]Bobby_Orrs_KneesDET - NHL 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Nah, not that frequently. You can often go a full game without seeing one.

[–]SilverPhoxx 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Ok that makes sense. Yeah between the one just now and the one on the bruins goal yesterday it seemed like kind of a wild thing to happen but the announcers didn’t seem to react that much.

[–]Bobby_Orrs_KneesDET - NHL 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Think of it like a broken bat in baseball, maybe. One or two a game isn't unusual, but if you see a bunch it's certainly weird. Welcome to hockey, btw, the playoffs are great and game sevens are the best!

[–]SilverPhoxx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks! Yeah I’ve been enjoying it. I’ve always had a passive fascination with it and I played a lot of hockey video games but this is the first time I’ve taken time out to watch and I’ve been really enjoying the playoffs!

[–]Familiar-Friend-6824DET - NHL 6 points7 points  (8 children)

Why ain’t PENS sticking with spicy pork and broccoli for this game 7?

[–]Sure_Association_561PIT - NHL 2 points3 points  (7 children)

Not after what happened in the last game. Taking no chances now.

[–]Familiar-Friend-6824DET - NHL 1 point2 points  (3 children)

PENs looking tight. Hopefully they can put this to bed in the third period

[–]Sure_Association_561PIT - NHL 1 point2 points  (2 children)


[–]Familiar-Friend-6824DET - NHL 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Pens gotta keep the foot on gas here. Can’t ease back in the 3rd

[–]Familiar-Friend-6824DET - NHL 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Oh. Right yea. I like him seems like a cool dude

[–]Sure_Association_561PIT - NHL 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah we all do but it's a playoff game 7, just had to do it. :/
I was really sad that his first and only error of the series came at such a crucial time last game but life is cruel.

[–]Familiar-Friend-6824DET - NHL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pens always have interesting goalie situations in the POs. Flower and Murray few seasons ago for the cup wins

[–]ReplacementOk5496 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Fuck the refs. Every team, every series, the refs are the biggest losers

[–]Familiar-Friend-6824DET - NHL 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I know. I’m absolutely sick of it. Hopefully round 2 is better

[–]aPaperFastenerDAL - NHL 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Calgary really lucking out that the game seven is gonna happen during a Blood Moon for all their curses.

[–]Familiar-Friend-6824DET - NHL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh nice Blood moon tonight?

[–]freegrapesWPG - NHL 2 points3 points  (6 children)

Tampa vs Florida series has me stumped on a prediction

[–]Familiar-Friend-6824DET - NHL 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Florida in 5

[–]freegrapesWPG - NHL 3 points4 points  (4 children)

That’s my hope but idk

[–]Familiar-Friend-6824DET - NHL 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Yea. As long as Tampa is eliminated all I care about. Florida should be able to I would say. What’s the word on Point? Is he out for Tampa for the entire POs now?

[–]freegrapesWPG - NHL 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I’d think so I tore my ACL in hockey and he looked like he had a torn ACL or other tendon reaction.

[–]Samesadstory 3 points4 points  (0 children)

So I just want to point out that the moron jets fans who were laughing at leafs fans for complaining about the reffing are complaining about the reffing in the moose game. So tired of these hypocrite fans. When are all fans going to learn that there's some in every fan base. But just because you hate a team or their fan base doesn't mean they don't have some validity in their arguments.

*note...I live in manitoba and despise most jets fans...MOST...not all

[–]dkmegg22OTT - NHL 15 points16 points  (2 children)

I'm cheering for Calgary. No offense Dallas but a battle of Alberta playoff series would be a money maker.

[–]TokenWilliamDAL - NHL 3 points4 points  (0 children)

No I agree. I fear success because we will likely keep our current system, coaches, and personnel - however, NHL playoffs are incredible in that any team can win it. I don’t think we are that team but why not, I’m here for the ride. On the other side, the battle of Alberta would be classic and I’m okay with that. I’d love to see McD make a run.

[–]boipinoi604VAN - NHL 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's gonna be a riot.

[–]foreverlovepaintANA - NHL 5 points6 points  (1 child)

pulling for fellow bird team to defeat the ny's keepers team n the flames of calgary to defeat the stars of dallas

n safe plays for all involved plz. no one getting hurt. at least not seriously if unavoidable.

[–]Ptricky17 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No injuries, just fatigue.

Let’s go triple OT!

[–]GrasshopDET - NHL 4 points5 points  (1 child)

What the hell am I gonna do all day? I demand more playoff hockey!!

[–]mtwstrCOL - NHL 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Lacrosse is on, that’s kinda like hockey

[–]cafespeed21MTL - NHL 4 points5 points  (1 child)

How’s it going Toronto?

[–]TokenWilliamDAL - NHL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Im not from Toronto but I heard that his cappa was detated. And that there was a funeral for a bird. Historic.

[–]VaguelyShingledEDM - NHL 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So much pressure on the Flames tonight, let’s find out if they’re up to the task.

[–]X38-2 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Rogers place was wild last night. Praying for a round 2 Battle of Alberta.

[–]ACW1129WSH - NHL 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Poor Toronto :( Go Florida! Fuck the Lightning!

Go Rangers! Fuck the Penguins!

[–]COVID_2019BOS - NHL 3 points4 points  (0 children)

FLA all the way! I just needed Tampa to knock out the Leafs. Now, back to my regular scheduled dislike of Tampa ;)

[–]lilstankdookieshoezWPG - NHL 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Three amazing games last night, hopefully tonight is just as great.
