#2512980 WCQF - Series G - Anaheim versus Dallas

Pretty damn classy by Dallas fans giving encouragement to Robidas (long-time Dallas player) who came off the ice with an injury. 

#2512966 Lines/Lineup changes for Game 3 (Home game 1)?

I don't think you change a damn thing.  I think Babcock needs to remind the boys that Game 1 went our way and if we play our game,  Game 3 could go the same way.  Don't rock the boat.  Don't make costly mistakes. Play Game 1 again.

BJs strike first at 1:38 of the 1st period.  2nd shot on goal.



Que the Fleury meltdown.  Jack Johnson scores.

Let us pause for a second. Bruins fans -- not all, but some -- booed Jesus. ON EASTER. Not cool, Boston. If you lose this series, you can probably point to the negative karma accrued by booing the Christ on his big day. (Additionally, you no longer get to make fun of Philadelphia for booing Santa.)

That's ok...we'll give Boychuk the green light to take nail your 2 starts...oh wait...Z's out so we'll nail Dat's and Nyquist. You'll see what it's like to be the Eastern Conference version of the Nashville Preds...1st round bounce.

Green light?   Really.  Isn't already open season for cheap shots on guys that aren't looking.


Anyway, I thought your best players didn't play game one because of the sniffles.  We've got legit injuries over here, pal.


Also, as far as I can recall... yeah, pretty sure Detroit has won the President's Trophy over the years... 23 years of playoffs (skin of teeth or other-wise, through adversity, injury, etc. or otherwise) ...teams that win the President's Trophy... often go out early.   So enjoy that sentiment.


...and as far as chucking knuckles.  Yeah, big bruiser Lucic. Grand Champion of spot picking knuckle-chucking...  what did he do last night? 

Certainly didn't throw any bombs.  (Unless it was after a whistle or the game was over) 

More like cheap shots to a guy who isn't even looking.  Real Tough.  Real Classy.

Stick to the nuts is old news.  No penalty.  No fine.  No suspension.  Let's get real... this is teh PLAYOFFS!   /sarcasm.


In other news: 


Dear Pittsburgh Fans,


Just because your players fall down when hit by an opposing Blue Jacket player does not mean that you should boo if there is no penalty called.

Hitting is still (partially) legal in Ye Olde NHL.


Yours Truly,

April 4 - Buffalo

April 5 - @Montreal

April 8 - @Buffalo

April 9 - @Pittsburgh

April 11 - Carolina

April 13 - @St. Louis


Those two home games are MUST WINS.

I actually like the fact that 3 of those 4 road games are going to be hard fought.

A real test for the playoffs.

Keep the foot on the gas, boys.

Howard won us this game. Needs to be said.


This.   ...and some clutch scoring from some youngsters. 


I have to ask... was Quincey on the ice for the last few minutes?   'cuz I think he might have been.

It was my birthday two Saturdays ago... I was thinking hard about what I should get myself.   I think a NYQUIST jersey is in order.  S-T-A-T.

Looks like he was trying to hand the trainer his teeth.  



Well, the guy's a beast.  He'll bounce back.

With that win right there... I'll go ahead and say:  We control our destiny.

TOR won but ''lumbus lost in OT.  Washington lost.  Even if the Devils win in OT they still don't have enough points to catch us or the BJs.


So they all stay behind us in the standings.


We need another win tomorrow, and then we need the Bruins to rebound from their loss against us with a win against Toronto on Thursday.

I think you could trade him.  I just don't think the return would be great, but who cares right?

Indeed.  The only way you're going to get great return for him is if he is packaged for a greater return.  In which case, people will complain about overpaying... but whatever.  You trade him to a place that has difficulty signing players.  Like EDM or NYI ...or to a rebuilding team that needs a reasonable cap-hit.  Like CGY or BUF.  



...and there's no way we're moving Weiss in the off-season.  His value is at an all-time low and his potential if he makes a rebound when healthy is way too high.
