The second round is upon. Let’s see who’ll win, shall we?
They’re not getting eliminated any time soon and besides, they’re playing the Sharks. Those poor Sharks won’t know what hit them.
I’m really, really on the fence about this series. If Luongo plays really well and those creepy Sedins keep the offense going, I think the Canucks will win. But Chicago could win easily too.
1.) They have to win. Like, my sanity is riding on this.
2.) Holy crap, have you SEEN Halak? It’s crazy. I don’t know how he does it.
I really could not care less about this series. There’s no way I could be less disinterested. The only redeeming quality this series has is that it’s one giant middle finger to NBC. That being said, I feel like Boston might not have the upper hand. It’ll change if/when Savard comes back and Rask has to play really well, but I feel like the Flyers are trying to seek revenge on all of us for making fun of them.
Punch line. Right now. Everyone get in.
Mike Green, you first.
I am so EFFING SICK of game 7s from you and I am so EFFING SICK of your shenanigans and if you lose tonight will punch all of you one by one.
Yes, that’s right Nicky. You will all be punched. I already saw one of my favorite teams knocked out in the first round and I better not see you get knocked out too.
As far as sporting events go, tonight was one of the worst nights of my life. It ranks right up there with my birthday this year and that medal game a few days after.
I feel empty.
The Sabres need to win tonight if for no other reason than to save Ryan Miller’s moustache. That thing is epic on so many different levels and to put him in a situation where he would shave it now in its infancy would be a crime.
THE SABRES WON! THEY’RE STILL IN IT!!! I LOVE TYLER ENNIS!!!!!
Those freaking Caps make me so mad sometimes.
That Kovalchuk trade really worked out for the Devils, huh?
Yes, the Caps won 6-3 (and let me tell you something, Alexander Ovechkin looked BEYOND RIDICULOUS in his postgame interview with his ripped off sleeves and his hardhat. Me: “He looks like a gay construction worker.” Mom: “You’re completely right.” [ed. note: I mean this in a really affectionate way, trust me]). That was fun and I’m looking forward to Friday night.
But the Sabres lost in the second overtime because Drew Stafford is a worthless pile of poo and now they’re down 3-1 and there’s no way they’re gonna come back from that and I’m not even going to be able to see the game Friday so I won’t see them again until October and I’m sad and Ryan Miller deserves so much better and at this point he should probably just go on a killing spree or something because it’s not like his teammates care about him.
AND Colorado lost last night. That’s just the sour icing on the overcooked, dried-out cake.
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO THE CAPS FINALLY WOKE UP!!!! WOOO!!! I STILL DON’T LIKE MIKE GREEN!!!!! WOO!! MATT BRADLEY IS SUCH AN AWESOME SECRET WEAPON TO HAVE IN THE PLAYOFFS!!! WOO!!
The Alex/Nicki near-makeout after Alex’s goal will go down as my favorite playoffs moment possibly ever, regardless of what happens in the rest of the playoffs. I think that’s the best celebration I’ve ever seen.
Those freakin’ Sabres make me so freakin’ angry. Vanek would’ve made a huge difference, but from what I saw in the third period they looked like a disinterested pile of crap and from what I saw on Twitter it sounds like it wasn’t much different during the first two periods. Ryan Miller deserves so much better.
Dear Sabres Not Named Ryan Miller,
Has it even occurred to you douchebags that he’s nominated for the Vezina Trophy? Has it even occurred to you that you could argue that the nomination is in spite of you?
I Don’t Like You Very Much Right Now,
Joy: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OH MY HOCKEY GODS NICKLAS I DIDN’T THINK YOU COULD GET BETTER BUT YOU DID!!
Mike Green is even worse than last year. Yeah, I WENT THERE.
I’m so glad they (mostly) woke up. I was worried.
Sorrow: Deat great and powerful hockey gods, I will do whatever (WHATEVER) you want, just please, please, please, by some miracle, allow Thomas to be okay. We need him. The Sabres need him. The city of Buffalo needs him.
