Actually it's quite simple...

To the true, pure hockey follower. The playoffs are perfect. True fans realize that every 1-0 game is a build up for later in the series. We watch as the first 2 games causes a chain reaction throughout the rest of the series. We can feel the intensity rising, even when no body checks or punches are being thrown. We see momentum shifting, whithout the nifty "momentum meter" of the EA sports franchise. We feel our team's frustration without the lamebrains of ESPN claiming it 10 minutes later. We know just how great it feels to kill a double minor, then dump the puck muscle it to the net and get rewarded with a lucky bounce. We also feel the pain when it happens in reverse.

We are hockey fans. To us, this is the greatest sport one could ever contemplate.

Unfortunately there aren't many true hockey fans, and to those who aren't it is a tedious way to end a boring sport's year. Fuk em!
