Do you.. watch other teams? Ever?

Buck Aki Berg 12-03-2012 12:49 PM

Despite the outcome, I think the Sens and Sabres in 1997 is my favourite. It was the first time I was truly emotionally invested in a playoff series, and it was a hell of a lot of fun to watch. Y'know, aside from watching the Sens lay an egg on home ice in game 6, then Ron Tugnutt's glove disintegrating in overtime of game 7.

Two teams I couldn't give less of a crap about, so I never saw a second of that series. Not even by accident. I missed out.....

DBU 12-03-2012 12:55 PM

2008 Sharks vs Stars
2004 Flames vs Canucks
2004 Flames vs Red Wings
2012 Flyers vs Penguins
2011 Bruins vs Lightning
2012 Kings vs Canucks

VinnyC 12-03-2012 01:10 PM

I re-watched the whole 2007 SCF... jesus, that was some hockey. Got goosebumps watching Game 5.

Other faves:

2010 Caps vs Habs
2010 Bruins vs Flyers
2010 Blackhawks vs Flyers
2011 Canucks vs Blackhawks
2012 Coyotes vs Blackhawks

Mystlyfe 12-03-2012 01:16 PM

How has the 2009 Penguins vs. Capitals not been brought up yet? Game 7 was lopsided, but the first six games was some of the most dramatic hockey I've seen.


So many "moments" in that series. The dueling hat tricks, Varlamov's absurd stick save, the Ovechkin knee-to-knee hit on Gonchar, the Penguins winning two OT games by deflecting pucks off of Caps defensemen, etc.

Thee Implication 12-03-2012 01:23 PM

2010 Montreal vs Washington
"Ohhh! Halak! Not giving an inch!"

2012- Philly vs Pittsburgh

Randall Ritchey 12-03-2012 01:29 PM

The 2002 Islanders-Leafs was the best in my memory. I still remember that penalty shot.

Nose Face Killah 12-03-2012 01:30 PM

2011 Bruins Playoff run if that counts.

ANTON HIS HOLINESS 12-03-2012 01:33 PM

Hurricanes/Devils 2009 gave me some of the most dramatic mood shifts of my life. The series had a GWG with 0.2 left, no repeat winners until Games 6 and 7, five one-goal games, and two overtimes. Oh, and it features the craziest Game 7 ending I've seen in quite a while. At the time NO ONE payed attention to this series, but it may have been the most exciting round of hockey in the 2009 playoffs


Frank Gallagher 12-03-2012 01:34 PM

2009 Pittsburgh vs Washington - One of the toughest offensive duels in recent memory...

Wedontneedroads 12-03-2012 01:47 PM

1994 Sharks vs Red Wings is what got me into hockey. Loved the sport ever since. Forgot how unreal of a save that was by Irbe til I just saw it again. Fedorov would have gotten a nice suspension in today's NHL for that one too :laugh:






Still trying to forget the tennis series the following year...

That series was insane. No kidding, I believe Halak in this series was the most dominant a goalie has been in the playoffs since Giguere in 2003. He was just unreal. Everytime you thought he was out of position, he would just stretch his arm or his leg to make un unreal save.

Generally, the Montreal Boston series are always very entertaining. Except 2009, we got destroyed by the bruins...

Thanks jerk.
Ha... I almost got on the Canes bandwagon after that when the beat the Bruins in similar fashion. They had something special that year.

My favorite series is probably Ottawa/New Jersey from 2003. That was the most stressful hockey series of my lifetime.
