  1. Montreal leads 1-0. I missed who scored.

  2. Either Montreal has yet to score on a power play this series, or Bob Cole just called a 1-0 game a stalemate.

  3. I've got a Jack Edwards stream up for this game. I'm watching the Sixers, but at commercials, I'm checking out what's going on in the hockey games.

  4. And I heard Bob Cole on Monday yesterday and I agree with your assessment in your blog about him and Millen. They were Versus bad.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Boston's tied it at 1. Again, I missed who it was.

    And the Rangers have scored first in thier game against the Capitals.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Wow, it's now 4-1 Boston. Damn, I turn my back on that game for 5 minutes and Boston lights it up.

    Meanwhile, Rangers are up 2-0.

  7. "We were not looking for that kind of explanation, but thanks anyway." - Gord Miller to Chicken Parm. Miller had reminded Chicken Parm that 16 years ago today Chicken Parm, (then better known as Ray Ferraro) got a huge game-winning goal in overtime for the Islanders. Chicken Parm then went on-and-on about that game, how he got the goal, and how that was the best series in his career.

    Too funny. Meanwhile, the Henrik Lundqvist is going all Marc-Andre Fleury on the Capitals.

  8. This just in: Sean Avery is a douche bag.

    A dumb, dumb, dumb penalty - a blatant high stick on Avery and the Caps have the power play down 2-1 with 3:04 to go.

  9. Boston sweeps the series as the fans throw stuff on the ice.

    Tools.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Boston wins 4-1 and they sweep the series.

    MEANWHILE LUNDQVIST JUST MADE A HECK OF A SAVE!!! 50.1 TO GO AND THE RANGERS ARE BARELY HANGING ON!!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!

    HOW DID WASHINGTON NOT SCORE THERE?!?!?!? UNBELIEVEABLE!!!! RANGERS SOMEHOW HANG ON TO WIN 2-1!!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. If the Rangers win the series, Lundquist should be in line for a huge raise (if he hasn't gotten on yet) cause he has saved them from a barrage.

    ReplyDelete
  13. If the penguins-Flyers series ends tomorrow and the Caps-rangers series ends Friday, it could be the worst weekend for NBC Sports. What would they do without hockey?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Habs fans...learn how to respect the national anthems...look in Calgary for a good example tonight

    ReplyDelete
  15. If NBC takes Flames/Hawks...Pierre will probably won't be available to them as he'll be working it for TSN with Cuthbert

    ReplyDelete
  16. Pierre McGuire INSIDE THE GLASS.


    Cuthbert probably asked to be by himself to avoid being with this idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  17. At least it isn't Cole/Millen at the game

    ReplyDelete
  18. The trash talk already started & it will get worst as the game goes on

    ReplyDelete
  19. Read this in Puck The Media, JC, and I think it might answer your question.

    NBC does have back up plans.

  20. PATRICK KANE SHOOTS AND IT'S IN!!!! CHICAGO STRIKES FIRST BLOOD IN CALGARY!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I did most of the game so I'm not totally sure, but I'm pretty sure Chicken Parm was Inside The Glass as well during the Caps-Rangers game.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm a bit nervous now Kane scored 1-0 Hawks

    ReplyDelete
  23. KANE SCORES!!! 1-0 BLACKHAWKS!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. IGINLA ON THE POWER PLAY!!!! AND JUST LIKE THAT WE ARE TIED AGAIN!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Iginla, the best Captain in the game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HIGH BLOCKER SNIP SHOT 1-1

    ReplyDelete
  26. Interesting article on the Marty Brodeur incident from last night.

    http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=419640

    ReplyDelete
  27. This one is starting to get ugly.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The pregame was the warm up, the 1st 15 mins of the 1st was feeling each other out (take this one out of context) & now it will get rough for the rest of the game

    ReplyDelete
  29. 1-1 after 20. Pretty even game so far.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Game thus far. 1-1 after 1 but I have a feeling that this game is a powderkeg that will just erupt at some point tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Jack Edwards made the Patrick Roy comparison to Carey Price. By looking at both, it looked real similar. Habs fans are worst than Philly fans. Heck Habs fans booed the US national anthem. Stay classy.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Well that was quick for the Flames.

    ReplyDelete
  33. JOKINEN'S 1ST PLAYOFF GOAL OFF A BOUNCING PUCK FROM CAM BARKER 2-1 FLAMES

    ReplyDelete
  34. OLIE JOKINEN SOCRES!!!! AND ONCE AGAIN, THE TEAM THAT STARTED OUT ON TOP IS NOW TRAILING!!! 2-1 FLAMES!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hey, why the unnecessary attack on us, perfectly harmless, good-natured Philly fans? ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  36. The big guns of the Flames have showed up tonight!!!!!! & Moss BANGS Hjalmarsson behind the net!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I was directing that shot towards the typical classless Habs fans who are as bad as Philly fans but worst for booing the US national anthem.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Philly fans have been more tamer lately...unless the Eagles are brought up

    ReplyDelete
  39. I was mainly being sarcastic. I know how bad some Philly fans can be and believe me, having been to numerous Philly sporting events, I've experienced the love, first hand.

    I've been to a plethora of Flyers games and I don't once remember us booing the Canadien National Anthem. The only occasion that I can recall where there was a situation was, if I recall correctly, Habs fans booed the Star Spangled Banner last year in the Flyer series with them and Flyers fans retaliated but I was not at those games and I'm going strictly on memory, so I could be wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  40. AUCOIN'S SHOT FINDS THE NET 3-1 FOR THE GOOD GUYS IN RED

    ReplyDelete
  41. JOKINEN HAS 2...BLACKHAWKS ARE IN TROUBLE...4-1 FLAMES...WILL THERE BE A HUET SIGHTING

    ReplyDelete
  42. JOKINEN SCORES HIS SECOND!!! IT'S 4-1 CALGARY!

    ReplyDelete
  43. OLLI JOKINEN NOTCHES ANOTHER FOR THE FLAMES!!!! 4-1!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. The Flames on home ice were one of the best home teams in the NHL this year. But the question is can they win a road game.

    Kipper has been playing much better this year compared from last.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm pretty sure that both teams are now utterly terrified of scoring the first goal in this series. I now expect every player on both teams to down some valium before the start of game 5...

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hawks still got somewhat of a chance. Versteeg on the PP 4-2 Flames.

    ReplyDelete
  47. VERSTEEG PULLS ONE BACK FOR CHICAGO ON THE POWER PLAY!! WHAT A 2ND PERIOD THIS HAS BEEN!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Note to self: Never use restroom during hockey game again.

    It never fails!!!!! I leave to take care of business...and someone scores! Always, always, always happens.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Cam Barker now...Oh great...I'm a bit nervous now 4-3

    ReplyDelete
  50. 1-GOAL GAME!!!!! CAM BARKER DEFLECTED IT HOME FOR THE BLACKHAWKS!

    This is looking shades of last night's Devils-Hurricanes game...and we all know how that ended.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh no...what I feared...a young team who doesn't know better...they could of mailed it in after 4-1...Bucklund now it's 4-4

    ReplyDelete
  52. HOLY CRAP! CHICAGO HAS COME ALL THE WAY BACK IN THIS GAME.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Um, Pierre, I'm pretty sure there were many 3-goal comebacks before the lockout as well.

    PAULSSON WITH A DRIVE....SOCRES!!!!!!!!!! AND CHICAGO HAS COME FROM 3 DOWN IN THIS INCREDIBLE 2ND PERIOD TO TIE IT AT 4!!! UNBELIEVEABLE!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Some friendly exchange at the neutral zone. 4-4 after 40

    ReplyDelete
  55. How do the refs not call the Blackhawks for too many men?

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm back and it's still 4-4.

    ReplyDelete
  57. "That's Patirck Sharp eating a piece of Khabib....er, Kiprusoff's stick." - Chris Cuthbert confusing his goalies.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Both defenses clamping down after a goal parade in the last 20

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hopefully this game does not go into overtime. I have to be up at 7 AM tomorrow and yet, I don't want to turn away from this game!

    ReplyDelete
  60. If this game goes into OT...I might be too tired to work out in the morning...at this rate...could see a few

    ReplyDelete
  61. NYSTROM RIGHT ON OT CUE, BACK OF THE NET 5-4 FLAMES & THIS SERIES MIGHT BE A BEST OF 3

    ReplyDelete
  62. "Here's Eager dicking in." - Chris Cuthbert

    Was Cuthbert the one who gave us the now infamous, "great dick, er, glove save" call?

    SCORE!!!! NYSTROM!!!!!!!!! CALGARY!!!!! 5-4!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I am surprised Todd Bertuzzi hasn't tried to break anyone's neck yet.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Not another injury. Langkow needs to be out there. That bench is really thin. Just to add to the fact that Regehr will not play this series.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Towes has been a no show tonight. Really quiet night from him.

    ReplyDelete
  66. 2-2 back to Chicago...See you Saturday Night for both teams

    ReplyDelete
  67. EMPTY NET GOAL FOR IGINLA!!! THIS SERIES IS TIED AT 2!!!!!!!!
