Any idea of when the next round will start? I know it will depend on when these series end, but just trying to plan for a weekend trip to Tampa. I picked up some game 2 tickets in pre-sale just in case, but I'm thinking I may have to switch to game 1 if these go to 7.
I think they'll make sure to give the winner of Washington/Pitt at least two nights off before the series starts. So that would imply Thursday at the earliest.
That's what I'm thinking. I also think I heard that there is a concert at Amalie Saturday. So if the Caps win I would think it would be Thursday/Friday for game 1, and maybe Sunday for game 2.
If it goes to 7, they'll either cut the break short and start Friday, or have game 1 on Sunday I guess.
HBD to SFY
Looks like he did indeed embarrass his teammates and the organization. I don't think his latest vow to clean up his act has anything to do with the league. Sweeney has no weighed in. (<-- Always thought Sweeney to be a class guy, and figured he wouldn't stand for this kind of BS the way former management groups may have.)
I think some people talked to him in the dressing room. Probably before Game 5, given the way Marchand performed. He looked like he was embarrassed to be on the ice.
Supposedly Chara (probably among others) was not pleased with the antics.
There's footage of Chara talking to him on the bench. Chara's back is to the camera, but you can see Marchand's face. And he has the look of a kid with a big angry dad he's just disappointed.
Yeah, imagine being eliminated and that's the legacy of your playoff appearance for the year.
We lose out this series I'm on the Caps bandwagon against whoever comes out in the West. DC sports fans have waited a long time for a Cup and Ovechkin merely over a dozen years and somewhere in the neighborhood of a quarter of the team's existence. I want us to win but it'll suck far... FAR less if I see #8 with that beautiful silver chalice over his head. Sometimes it's someone else's turn to win and I fully accept it and embrace it should this be Ovechkin's long awaited turn.
But in the meantime let's pray for his greatest defeat yet
Out of all the small skilled guys we've brought up over the years that were compared to MSL the one we let go is the one closest to him, JAM having a hell of a season/playoffs.
I think Vegas winning a cup would be really bad for the NHL. Hell having them get this far is bad enough.
Either it suggests WAY to much randomness or Vegas, as great of a job as they did drafting, had far to many advantages.
What advantage did they have that put them over cup favorites? Not to mention all the revenues from Vegas right out the gate with a season like this, how is that bad for the league. This is dumb.
Their best player is a guy we let go for free, nice advanatge I guess.
Limited number of protected players allowed relative to previous expansions. JAM should still be a Panther. Guess I should be glad he’s not.
I was just thinking the same thing. Though honestly I think they’re winning the cup anyway at this point.
They look too good. Not sure we would be able to beat them.
I honestly did not know he was taking about JAM for like 10 seconds. Jon Massarole?
Grapes seems to crush people's names together.
JAM + Don Van Massenhoven = Jon Massenrole
Trouba + Dumba = Trumba
Man, this Vegas team.
