I am so ecstatic that both Blues and Pelicans won (or more so that Kärpät lost). Hoping for a Jokerit-Blues final. As a Jokerit fan I would be obviously pulling for them, but I wouldn't mind seeing Blues finally winning the championship.
EDIT: How did Blues make history last season btw? Becoming the first team in SM-liiga making it to the finals through the "wild card" series?
Yep, even reaching semi-finals was history.
Being Blues fan myself, Jokerit vs Blues would be interesting, but wouldn't like to lose twice in a row against team from Helsinki. But on the counterpart, beating Jokerit would be more emotional than beating JYP.
Blues played really well in the second period but screwed up the game in the third by taking too many penalties. Same start as they had in the KalPa and Lukko series. I hope they pick up their game again like they did in the first two series'.
Go Pelicans! I want to see Pasi Nurminen celebrating championship again!
Sadly these games are in different BS channels...Nelonen Pro 1 and Nelonen Pro 2 (who has Pro 2 anyways) and Nelonen doesn't even have stream service. Though you can watch replay games in the evening/night from channel JIM.
He had a great season and brought grit, energy and important goals. Not the most talented guy out there but his work ethic is top notch. He likes Jokerit organization and Helsinki and signed 2 year extension.
