As an old man, seems weird to see no Detroit, Chicago or St. Louis in the playoffs. #Norris

This entire city is jacked up for tonight's game. Went to the Jets store at lunch, and waited in a massive line to make a purchase. A downtown street is being shut down to put up big screens for the public to watch. I assume there will be many people there tonight, despite the fact that there is snow in the forecast.

I joined but it took me a minute to figure out how to actually find other leagues. There's a search bar in the league page on the top right that isn't immediately obvious.

Holy crap this Kinghts/Kings game is fantastic. Is this what hockey always looks like for fans of non-St.-Louis-based teams?

This sums up what I thought watching it.

 

But if a coach just let's players play hockey instead of restraining them it makes the coach less important, and we all know that's the important thing. I for one applaud the concept of libertarian coaching and now want Glen Jacobs to be the next Sabres coach. The organization should take the concept all the way and give players the option of being paid in either gold/silver or crypto currency.

@Death From Above I just heard the news about Chia keeping his job. Where does everyone meet to form the suicide cluster, and since Phil Housley still has a job can I join?

Hockey twitter is amazing right now. I am not even exaggerating, literally every non-Edmonton hockey account I follow that has tweeted in the last 15 minutes has done so to make fun of the Oilers. Absolutely no neutral observers think this is working.

Oilers twitter is not happy (to put it mildly), but you watch, another season of 41/41 sellouts.

Well you know it is April in DC because:

1.  The Caps are playing an overtime playoff game at home

2.  The Caps lose the overtime playoff game at home

That Panarin goal was soooo beautiful. He transferred to the forehand and released in the blink of an eye. Gorgeous. 

I mean, I shouldn't talk as a Canucks fan but Chicago done fucked up with that one, huh?

Drew Doughty has started the parade of suspensions. Josh Anderson and Nazem Kadry are up next. Lost in the nasty hit by Kadry will undoubtedly be the hit on Marner  2 seconds earlier that he was avenging,

Filip Forsberg just deked out the entire Avalanche organization. Joe Sakic's jock strap is near center ice.

welcome to the playoffs Mr. Evander Kane

I'm so fucking glad we got back a guy who will top out as a 4th line plug and a pick who will end up being an OK player for the Amerks or the captain of the Cyclones for him.

Saw that goal last night while watching the game and rewound the DVR like 5 times. Unreal. Dude's been drinking the ankle breaking powerade.

The thing I was struck by last night was just, once again, how insanely average the Ducks look when teams don't swallow the bait of their constant nonsense. When they actually have to just play the game they haven't looked above average in a very long time. San Jose might have a crummy playoff history but they are a veteran team that probably won't sucker for all that shit, and I think it's a bad match up for the Ducks.

There will never be an explanation I will accept, in hindsight, for how Forsberg was the 2nd highest rated Euro forward in his draft class (behind THE GREAT Nail Yakupov), yet he slipped out of the top 10. Of all the Oilers what if's that I could never fix, that's the one that actually irks me. Could have traded down 9 slots and still had this dude? Fuck me.
