I have something embarrassing to confess.

After they scored the winning goal, watching Lundqvist collapse then sit up like the loneliest person in the world. I felt his pain and started to cry. When I watched the highlights again today, my eyes watered again watching it. I've had my share of disappointments with rooting for sports team, but never had this experience before. What do I make of this? Did any of you also feel this way?

When Martinez scored I just shut the TV off and wiped my mind clean of any thinking about the game.

Don't know why anyone would intentionally watch any further after Martinez scored, highlights or otherwise. Might just be me, though.

I watched because I wanted to see Gabby raise the cup.

I watched the handshake as that is one of the things I like about this sport.

As a hockey fan, I can appreciate what the Kings just did and the hockey fan in me was happy for them. The Rangers fan in me was not. But before I am a Rangers fan, I am a hockey fan.

I watched them present the cup, I watched them lift the cup and I watched them skate with the cup.

I love this sport and my team losing doesn't take that away.

Winning the cup is a ****ing hard thing to do. I have the utmost respect for any and every team that can do it.

I just wish it were my Rangers that raised that beautiful chalice and not the opponent.

I turned the tube off immediately and haven't seen a thing since.

Bring on next season.

I have a dent in my bathroom wall that I didn't have before the game started.

Emotions get the best of us all. We just have to remember how things could always be worse.

(Though I cried like a baby when Pittsburgh beat us in 1992. Age 10.)

Did the same. He jumped up when he scored and it was *click* for me. Didnt care to watch anything more. Went about my business after that and today has been fine.

I waited until after the Conn Smythe, as I thought Hank had an outside chance at it.

Lol. FPSs started giving me headaches a few years back (or maybe it was actually my ex wife, no conclusive evidence either way). But I do enjoy co-op Gears with the gf

To the OP, no shame in crying. If there was, I wouldn't be allowed to watch Disney movies. Damn you Disney!

As I posted on an ESPN article, I'm so proud of this team, but Henrik deserves better. A lot better.

Is it true that tough men don't cry? Or is it just BS?

Can't say I cried, but it doesn't necessarily make me tough.

For some it becomes very emotional. It's normal. It's nothing to be embarrassed about.

As luck has it we stopped over in Andover Mass. last night (right around the corner from Chris Kreider's Boxford) on the way to Bar Harbor. Game ended and the TV went off. I was a bit pissed but we still had a bit of a drive to do today.

I think the team accomplished a lot this year. We are not going to be able to hold this team altogether though and it's a reach at this point to think we're going to be back to the finals in the next few years.

The playoff experience that many of our players got though can be an invaluable thing. That is a positive. 25 games of playoff experience in one year. That's a lot. We're going to have to retool a bit though. We're a player or two away IMO.

I sat in my room fuming with rage tears after the 49ers lost the Super Bowl the other year. So I feel you.

I shut it off after the handshake. The officiating spoiled an otherwise excellent postseason.

Rangers were jobbed. From the icings to the Kings constant picks and interference, to the double standard for both diving and goalie interference.
