Flyers and Penguins. Is this better than the Finals?
This is the best hockey you will ever see. These guys are killing each other, both teams are flying out there, great saves mixed into the action, tremendous skill on display. They are really putting everything into every hit out there. I don't think any playoff series will top this in 2012.
Then you got the rivalry, the coaches hate each other (I guess), Jagr, just a ton of history and venom. lol so awesome. That's gotta sting seeing Jagr score the GW.
Oops I wanted to make this a poll and I messed it up. lol sorry.
If you're not loving the hockey these teams are playing then seriously what the heck are you looking for?
So many posts in this thread complaining about defence. Give me a break. To all you that want to watch more defense. Go watch St.Louis and San Jose snooze the game to death.
This is great fun to watch. Lead changes galore. Goals scored. Momentum swings. Emotion swings.
I sure as heck didn't see that in the fantastic battle that was San Jose and St.Louis. There I saw a couple of teams that all stood in front of the net daring the other team to score some flukey ass goals.
This was looking to be the best series in round 1 and by god it's living up to the bill.
“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
