Congrats to Al Wilson. You guys really cleaned our clocks today. I think we will respond better in Game 2. I think the playoff atmosphere definitely caught the young kids by surprise...but this team has alot of heart and I think we will respond well.

Very impressive effort by your boys tonight, however.

Preds tie it up in the final minute! 4-4. 50 seconds away from our first OT of the postseason.

Not a whole lot of quality scoring chances, though. These teams are dead on their skates out there.

Got back form the Ducks game. Wild was only 6 points behind the ducks yet in 7th spot. The West is going to kill each other in these 3 rounds. Selanne still has what it takes and is on the wrong side of 35. Sorry Avs fans but whatever his problem was in Colorado, he sure has been worth every penny in the last two years. As for Pens, I cant see you guys losing this round unless inexperience will take place.

To the surprise of no one, the game ends with Marty Turco giving up a goal.

What a great bunch of games last night! Felt bad for the Pens as they looked a little shell shocked at the start, but I think they will pick it up. Sens looked good. Was bummed that the Preds didn't pull it off in OT, was quite a feat to get there. Hope the Ducks kill the Wild. Haven't had any use for the Wild since they knocked the Avs out a few years back. The Stars and Canucks series has the look of a great one, had to hit the rack at 0230 and they were only in the third OT here in Atlanta. Looking forward to the Thrashers and Rangers tonight! Pulling for the Thrashers as they are the ONLY local team I can stand. Had season tickets back in 1999-2003, but had to let them go due to employment. Hope the Flames kick the crap out of the Deadwings, the Devils punk out the Lightning, and Chris Drury leads the Sabers to a win over the Isles. Speaking of Drury. I hated it when they shipped him out of Colorado, and I hope the Avs make a run at bringing him back this summer. I think he would make a great guy to pick up the leadership torch from Joe when he decides to hang up the skates. For a great article on Drury check out this link: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...416/index.html
I'd paste it up here, but it is ten pages long! Real good read, though.

That Vancouver/Dallas game was a great game to watch. I finally called it a night after the end of OT3. Very physical game.

That looks to be a great series to watch. I didn't get to see the SJ/Nash game, darnit. That one looks like it'll be great too.

Can't wait for Wings/Lames.

Way to go, bcj....I hope your Ducks sweep the Mild.

I had been toying with the idea of going to a hockey game for a while and I finally did so tonight. I had been to a few hockey games before, but never in an arena where you can actually see something. Copy and paste from another forum, where I asked for adivce on where to sit. Decided to sit in the upper tier behind the goal, last row.

Quote:
Excellent advice, Wispy. Just got back from the game and the seats were pretty good. We were a little ****ed when the action was at the other end and behind the goal on our side, but overall it was an excellent experience to watch a hockey game in a state-of-the-art building where you can actually see whatīs happening. Itīs a little hard to follow the puck when you donīt focus sometimes, but itīs really interesting to watch it from behind the goal. Hockey definitely is a sport that has to be watched in person and thatīs not very TV friendly.

Game was pretty good also. Game 1 of the Finals .... Mannheim, who havenīt lost a playoff game yet this season, v Nuremberg ... Mannheim really wasnīt able to convert its PP chances into goals in the first and Nuremberg scored on one of their three shots in the first period ... 1-0 after 1 ... Mannheim equalised on the PP shortly before the end of the second and scored the go ahead goal and what looked like the certain game winner 3 and a half minutes before the end, but Nuremberg managed to equalise on a 6 on 4 with 6 seconds left to take the game to OT, where Mannheim managed to win with 5 and a half minutes to go on a 3 on 3. The Nuremberg goalie, Jean Francois Labbe, was **** hot and ended the game with 54 saves.

I definitely think I will be back if I can get tickets for a possible all deciding Game 5 or next season.

Shots per period

Adler Mannheim 19 10 11 17 57
Sinupret Ice Tigers 3 9 11 5 28

I'm glad the Avs don't have someone like Marty in nets. He's scary to watch out there. Some of the chances he takes would curdle my blood if I was a Stars fan. He's entertaining, but I'm very glad he's on their team.

OK, for my birthday I got a DVD-Recorder so I've been transferring some old tapes of stuff to DVD. I just went to transfer my copy of game 7 of the 2001 cup finals to DVD only to find out that my tape has been used so much that it's a little worn in parts. Is there anyone who would be willing to make a copy of their tape for me? In exchange, I would happily either transfer it to DVD for you, trade you a different sporting event, or just give you cash.

For the second game in a row, the Preds take a major. Kneeing in game one, now checking from behind on Radulov in game two.

It's bad enough giving the Sharks two minute power plays, but the five minute, uninterrupted ones will kill you.

Preds & Stars get even. Ducks remain in control.

Cracks me up. They break in on the Nugs game on radio 950 to bring in the call on Peter's goal...

I think we'll be hearing plenty of that on 950 next year.

Best play of the night was Getzlaf schooling Skoula on that short handed goal against the Wild tonight. Thing of beauty.

Oh and Turco shuts out the Canucks...well it is Friday the 13th

Ah, memories. Seems like it was just yesterday that Skoula was getting put on goal scorers highlight reels and screening his own goaltender in an Avs uniform.

Where does the time go?
