You can thank NBC for that. They don't want the game to start until after the end of the Sidney Crosby show.

Same deal for game 4 on Tuesday.

So I have a random question for you guys when watching a game.. if you watch with other people do you sit there and talk throughout the game, or are you sitting there quiet really watching and analyzing the whole game?

The first game I watched with my family, my girlfriend and her friend, and the whole time they were just like chatting up about nothing, while I'm sitting here stone faced with my heart beating out of my chest 90% of the time hoping we score just completely zoning them out.

To be honest I never really watched games with anyone before this year. With my girlfriend now most of the time the talking is stuff like "Who's that?" "Is he good?" and answers and that type of stuff.

I've watched a few games with some buddies(and will tonight as well) and it's quiet with some talking about "Holy ****! That was awesome!" and "He sucks" "They should do _____".

I was watching game 1 more or less alone (roommates in and out of the room) and I was still yelling at the TV.

Playoffs, yo.

I've actually gotten scolded at the X for chatting too much about the game with a friend, believe it or not. Minnesota Nice for you .

Just don't see the Wild even being close in this game. 4-1 Hawks if we're lucky.

Sorry but the Hawks are just so much of a better team.

However, that doesn't mean I stopped rooting for the team, I certainly wish they could win.

Yes outside of random outbursts. Covering Gopher games in the press box has made me a quieter sports spectator.

Going to a friend's house to watch the game. Bringing the girlfriend so the two women can gab about their upcoming weddings and we can scream at the TV/complain about the Wild

I watch the games alone, shouting angrily at the screen and occasionally pounding my fist on something within range when we dont convert on a scoring chance.

As Han Solo said in Star Wars: "I got a BAD feeling about this".

My head tells me that Chicago will come out on fire and blow the doors off our Wild before they even know what hit them. Then it's game, set, and match.

My heart tells me that the Wild gained some confidence in knowing they had Chicago on the ropes and were good enough on Tuesday to win that game and will carry that confidence into tonight and will execute the same game plan. This time, beating Chicago by a goal late in regulation or OT.

Alas, I think head wins out over heart....But who knows, this is the playoffs and crazier things have happened.

5-1 Hawks.

I hope you don't have a cat!

I don't like this late start idea it's not fair to Wild/Hawks fan on the east coast. Let's say either game 2 or 4 goes to double OT then the game will end around 2 in the morning! I wonder how the desicion makers thought that was a good idea. I think it takes out most of the casual fans interest out, even in the CDT. Not the best way to grow the local fan base.

Sigh. worst timing for a late game ever.

I'm so sick right now and I didn't get any sleep last night so i'm so tired, and I can't see myself being able to stay up or waking up at that time, if I do fall asleep. Meh already missed the first game.. At least we have an early game on sunday...

Go Wild!

NBC couldn't care less about either our fan base or the Hawks fan base. All they care about are nationwide ratings, and they think showing the Hawks and the Wild after the Penguins is the way to get ratings.

All the negativity in this town sucks.

We're going to get 2 early goals and the Hawks will get very frustrated. This will lead to bad penalties and maybe a Minnesota injury. Final score 4-1. Game 3 PMB is out, Pominville in.
