2013-14 NHL Playoffs

Wed Apr 16, 2014 10:22 pm

Start tonight! Who will win the cup? Here is the playoff bracket:



I have predicted a final Blues-Bruins (obvious choice, they are leading the league) with the Bruins winning it, but you never know what surprises might come!

I hope my Habs will go far... or at least go past the first round.

Who do you cheer for and who do you think will win?

I'm nervous. I usually feel confident about my Habs against most teams, but IIRC they didn't beat Tampa Bay once this season. I hope that trend doesn't continue into the first round.

Also, it would be terrible if not a single Canadian team made it through the first round...

They beat them once on shootout. Then only losses... I have predicted the Habs would win the series in 6, because they have a bit more experience. Also, it will depend a lot on Price's form!

I'm also expecting the line Pacio-Desharnais-Vanek to show they are up the challenge. Fingers crossed!

Um, the Ducks have more points and more wins than the Blues. My Sharks have fewer losses than the Blues, too.

I'm not a big fan of this format: I liked the old format better where you got to see teams (i.e. SJ-Minn) that you didn't play as much. Not that I don't like the SJ-LAK matchup.

Anyway, go Sharks. That's all that matters.

I stand corrected. I was too busy looking at the Habs racing against the Bolts lately . However, I still believe they'll make to the finals.

Habs won it in OT. Penguins won it too.

I wish I could say I was confident in my Wild making it far, but even if they make it past the Avalanche they are going to get spanked by the Blues or Blackhawks.... Maybe next year. (I'm pretty sure I said that in this thread last year.)

That CHI-STL game yesterday was worth watching. Unfortunately, I was too tired to watch the 2nd OT (let alone the 3rd one), but the game has been great to watch from beginning to end.

Colorado struggled to win against the Wild. After trailing the whole game, they equalized with 13 seconds left in regulation and scored the OT winner to lead the series 1-0. This might be a tighter series than I excepted.

As for PHI-NYR and LAK-SJS, I don't have much to say except that San Jose did not leave the Kings a chance to believe they could win yesterday.

And for your enjoyment, a face of Patrick Roy during the game yesterday:

I am not an NHL fan but I had the games one every now and then last night.

I watched the last 3mins of the Sharks first period.
The first 1min of the Blues 3rd OT
And most of the 3rd of the Sharks games.

I saw a ton of goals. That was fun! Timing was perfect when I changed the channels. I really don't have a preference to who wins. Maybe Tampa because they are in Florida. But I do usually watch the later round games on TV. They are a lot of fun to watch.

My take on the PIT-CBJ series is that while PIT may win this series, the same issues have come up as they have in the previous 3 playoff runs. If they play PHL or BOS in the near future, adios.

First, their defense has taken a nosedive. While that wasn't the primary issue the last three years, it is not looking too great. Martin/Letang coming in off of injuries/physical ailments they are a bit rusty and not performing at a high level. (I know letang had a stroke and I hope that never happens again, but from the game perspective he is not cutting it; however, that was the same last year.) Scuderi might as well hold towels and water bottles and Orpik needs a camera so he can take some good shots from where he is standing.

Second, The power play, 1-9 the other night (I think, im not going to search it could've been 1-8). You have the "best player in the league," Malkin, Neal, Letang, and was it Kunitz on the 1st PP and that is all you could muster?!?! Flashback to BOS series last year. And I suppose playoffs as well. OH, also I might point out that PP has allowed 2 short handed goals in 2 games.

Third, (my favorite), FLEURY. Now I know I said the D is not good, and it isnt. But 8 goals in 2 games. Seriously, that is not great by any means. People here in the city have given him too many free rides. He was spectacular in the Stanley Cup year and really good in the regular season since then. BUT, his playoff performance has been atrocious since. I still remember that Philadelphia series where the final score of every game was 9-8 (ok exaggeration but they felt like shootouts). While he may hold CBus to only 4 goals his superstars will need to put up at least 4 a night to give them a chance to win. Time to go.

I will admit im not a huge Hockey guy, and feel free to criticize, but I see this team as the status quo 4 years in a row. No REAL changes have been made and Bylsma continues to make zero adjustments. Hes the anti Phil Jackson of sports for sure.

I'm hoping my Bruins make a return to the Stanley Cup Finals again. They will have their work cut out for them, and it's always tough getting back after making it last time. I think we're a contender though.

Roy looks like crap. High blood pressure or alcoholism or something. His face is constantly red. Granny came up huge for my team last night, and hopefully the Wild can build on the success they've had with Kuemper on net and last nights win. Honestly, his OT goal was PRETTY!
So we beat on against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

Oh dear...that's not happening lol. Colorado won't beat the Blues regardless of whether or not they have their Captain. If the Wild tie the series up tonight, I believe the Avs could be in for some trouble! Alas, the Wild have little chance. All around, I think the Blues would take a series against the Avs right now. I'm glad Chicago is getting slapped around  .

I can't wait to see what the Wild do in free agency. Goaltending is atrocious, Koivu needs replacing (MacKinnon is breaking his ankles when the first lines go against each other). Brodziak needs to crawl in a hole. Bryz has been miserable in net. I pull my hair out each time I watch them.

As far as the bruins I hope they don't make it to the finals. What a cheap team!

You wrote it after Tampa's elimination yesterday. Did you mean Tampa at all?

Colorado is an excellent team, but once they face the Sharks, the Ducks or the Blues, I'm not sure it will be that easy anymore (no offense to the Wild, of course). They have a great line with MacKinnon-Stastny-Landeskog and a great goaltender, but I'm worried about their defense and their lack of experience.

I just hope you won't get Vanek. He showed his interest to join the Wild next season, but I hope he stays in MTL. He's been a great addition to the team. Hopefully we can go far enough to convince him to stay!

A lot of talent is coming in, we just need a bit more, like a first line center. We picked up Frolin, that was huge. I watched him live against the Blues and he was impressive. He literally had the pick of any NHL team, but chose the Wild.

Thing is, in the East, I really don't see who can upset them. You would think Pittsburgh could do, but they're not playing their best hockey right now. You'll need an excellent Western team to beat them in the finals.

The Habs will face them in the second round. Let's hope Emelin has good testicles protection. I saw Lucic is a bit too "spearing-in-the-nuts" friendly lately...

After a teribru second period, we found a way. The arena was on fire. Never heard a sporting venue so loud than when Parise netted the game winning goal. Then the building collectively crapped their pants when Varlamov was pulled. After the cursed empty-netter went in, there was a collective sigh of relief. Was a fun friggen game. Game 7 next! Wild have come close twice to winning at The Can so lets hope we can win game 7 and hand it to those pesky Hawks

Can the Rangers score 5 goals in 50 seconds to end the series? I'm thinking not!!! 

Pittsburgh advanced and the Flyers are forcing a game 7.

Oh, and apparently the Rangers can score at least one anyway. I doubt they'll get much more than that though...

I watched the last Penguins-Jackets game the day before yesterday. Great game, especially the last 10 minutes! I am not supporting any of the teams, but I was almost hopeful Columbus would equalize and win the game in OT.

Now, I just hope Philly qualifies so we have a super heated semi-finals between them and the Pens. With Bruins-Habs on the other bracket, this will be the best Eastern semis one could hope!

I read in the recap of PHL-NYR game 6 that the Flyers take a train to play the Rangers. While I understand the efficiency of the travel (Penn Station being in the basement of MSG), how does that jive with sports team logistics? Does the team charter the train? Where do they put the cargo/team equipment? Do they get Amtrak to hold the last train of the night if the game runs late? Do they also take the train to play the Devils or Islanders? Do the 76ers do the same when playing the Knicks?

I can't say I've seen any team in any sport quite like the San Jose Sharks. Year after year, they compile fantastic regular seasons, and then fail so hard in the postseason, never reaching the Stanley Cup finals in almost 20 playoff appearances. And tonight, they lose to the Kings to blow a 3-0 series lead, the fourth team to do so. Not a fan of either team, but you wonder if San Jose's playoff fortunes will ever change.

Wild! What an amazing series that NO ONE thought the Wild would win. People were talking of the Avs taking the series in 4 or 5 games. Blackhawks better watch out. This team is very different from the one they faced in round one last season. We have two solid tenders that are capable to stop pucks. Last season when Harding was called on to replace Backy in game 1, he had only played 5 games during the regular season. Both Bryz and Kuemps have a lot of time under their belts this season.

I bet the Islanders want Nino Niederreiter back!
So we beat on against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

Quoting LittleFokker (Reply 39):

I can't say I've seen any team in any sport quite like the San Jose Sharks. Year after year, they compile fantastic regular seasons, and then fail so hard in the postseason, never reaching the Stanley Cup finals in almost 20 playoff appearances. And tonight, they lose to the Kings to blow a 3-0 series lead, the fourth team to do so. Not a fan of either team, but you wonder if San Jose's playoff fortunes will ever change.

Well, I'm happy the Pens are moving on, and I'm a little disappointed that the semi-finals will not feature a Pens-Flyers matchup. Better luck next year Philly, yinz came so close to doing it...

Go Pens!!

And, the Pens just collapsed in OT. Not a good way to start a series -- and at home of all places...

Well my Wild need help in net. In the second it was 2-0 Wild, but shots were 18-3 in favor of the Wild. Not looking good. We found a Blackhawks hat in the apartment (which is strange because all of us hate them) during the second intermission. It ended up on fire somehow. Strange how that works  . Fingers crossed for tomorrow.

Bruins - Canadians tied at 1 game a piece. Always entertaining when those two teams meet.

BTW, I am a Bruins fan and the comments made about PK Subban after game one by some fans have no place in hockey and do not in anyway represent the views of all of us. I am embarrased by these guys.

Amen. Though somehow I doubt those are actually fans. Sure, they may put a Bruins avatar up, but if they were true fans, they'd know that P.K. Subban's brother Malcolm is a goalie for our AHL affiliate, one of our star players (Jerome Iginla) is half-Nigerian, and that the first black hockey player (Willie O'Ree) played for the Bruins. I'm a huge Bruins fan, but I'm sure there are bigger fans than me and if I know that, so should they.

Still, it's been an exciting series so far!

The hawks are doing what I love them for.
I'm disappointed by the Sharks, but I can't be too mad because a SoCal team is now guaranteed to be in the WCF, potentially against the Hawks and I'm going to LA in two weeks after graduation.
As for the Bruins/Habs series, I'll just leave it at this.

Amazingly despite Boston falling behind 3-1 before winning Game 2 (just 4 minutes to go); no one seems to be giving hope for Montreal over Boston...
