Should be a real tough series against Wilkes-Barre. Other than Hersehy, it's the team I'd LEAST like to see BPort play in round one.

Now they've got to go into that series and battle, battle, battle.

If analyzing, I feel WB has the better goaltending (unless Danis starts) and a better attack.

BPort has the advantage on the blueline, with Hillen vs. Goligoski an interesting match-up, so to speak. We have the peskier players as well.

One way or another, not having McLean and Colliton is gonna make things tough. Would have been interesting with Comeau there as well.

Gonna be difficult - could go the distance - may come down to goaltending ..... I hope BPort has the final word in the matter.

for 6 bucks a game u can watch on AHL live. I will be on my honeymoon and will miss the entire first round of the playoffs. Unless if Nec. there is a game 7 Sunday in Bport starting at 7pm which won`t happen.
I gave away my seats for the first round but I will watch 1 or 2 games from Aruba.
Good luck to Bport and hopefully I get to see a round 2 in Bport.

Anyway the team I fear right now is Phili. Phantoms they are on a crazy hot streak and can very easily pressure Hershey to 7 games and can even steal that series. I want to see a Phantom`s vs Tiger`s 2nd round.

thanks.
Congrats on the wedding and enjoy the honeymoon! Very interesting scheduling of the honeymoon during the 1st round of the playoffs, was this strategic? Did you "know" the Isles would miss the playoffs?

Thanks much.

I am actually a FLyer fan when it coems to NHL but the Isles being the parent club of Bport i have a soft spot for them.

Planned 2 years ago so no strategery..lol..

The only teams I could never root 4 are Pittsburg or there affiliate and The Rags and there affiliate.
I am good friends with B.Smith`s Niece and nephews so I was always around the Isles people

Any idea on where the Soundtigers are staying? Im not into stalking but I'm just curious, seeming that they will be on the Island for a few days.

You know I could post several less than flattering photos

Looks like Petrov had 2 assists yesterday against Slovokia. Wish he was coming over next year.

anyone see the BP game? I'm wondering how Okposo played? Joensuu? Anyone standout in the loss, outside the box-score?

Nice to see Trevor Smith score in the playoffs.

it was a tough game, in the first and second periods they looked bad. But, in the third they really picked it up. The refs did an unbelivably bad job, like something Ive never seen before. They made 2 bad calls that resulted in pens goals. The refs let lawsen get pushed around and taken advantage of and the players did nothing to stand up for him. Okposo played ok, he did good rushing the puck up the ice and he made some nifty moves but he consistenly was losing the puck deep in the zone and he was falling alot. Personally I thought Hillen, Iggulden, and Smith looked great. Joensuu looked decent and he show'd some physicality.

MacDonald looked good to me and Hillen had a pretty good 3rd period. Okposo may have been guilty of trying to do too much by himself. Trevor Smith's goal was a great play on the forecheck and Iggulden picked up the puck behind him and fed it back too Smith in front. Marcinko looked like the top pk guy.

Luca Caputi played well last night for the baby Pens.

Boy... the BPort series is not in good shape.

They blew a 4-2 3rd period lead at home and are now down 0-2 heading down to Wilkes-Barre.

Iggulden injured. Okposo is gone now as well.

Don't know how things are looking with either Lessard or Colliton returning to the series, but it's gonna take an incredible, incredible effort to turn this thing around.

I know Dibenedetto finished with -1 tonight but did anyone see the game? I'm interested to find out whether or not he looked over matched at all..

would love to see BP go deep in the playoffs....glad to see them come back. I heard Comeau is skating, may play if they make the next round. I think they really miss Colliton, I was really looking forward to him having a strong playoff performance.

Looks like Sim's looking for an NHL gig next season, likely not with the Isles. Good luck to him.

Just having seen the highlights, it definitely looks like our goaltending is the biggest weakness in the series thus far. Each game has been decided by a one goal difference, but some of the types of shots that have gone in against BPort (particularly Lawson) ...... well, if you want to win, those types of shots don't get through.

Fact is though, after being down 4-1 after 30 some minutes, the comeback was monumental. Will it have been all for naught?

They have a long road ahead of them and you gotta wonder if they can do it without guys like Lessard, Colliton and McLean....

Still, from watching the highlights, those games sure are good advertisement for the AHL. Some fun, fun stuff going on!

If would be something else if a Gratchev, Figren or Dibenedetto could provide some unexpected heroics!

Gonna be a rough road back for BPort.

Yet another close, one goal difference.

DiBenedetto just got his first pro goal, tying the game at 1 in the first period.
