yeah, true. Even if the Rangers get passed the Devils. Not too confident we can beat the Kings.

Hank would have to steal the series for us to if we are going to win. Rangers are just too inconsistent with their forwards.

Story I always point to when people talk about touching these trophies is that Matteau actually touched the Prince of Wales trophy before taking the ice for the 2nd OT.

Aren't you the dude who was supposed to eat his pubes when we beat Ottawa? Has that happened yet? Should we raise the stakes if the Rangers win the ECF, and then the Cup?

Yet another fan handing the kings the cup because they raced through the west. Forget why they were able to race through the west and who they played.

To be fair, Ottawa and LA are two completely different monsters, playing for much higher stakes.

Agreed. They are similar to the Flyers, but they have a Lundqvist clone at their end. Scary stuff.

A few things:

1. **** LA, they didn't deserve that one at all.

2. You'd be hard-pressed to find me a luckier piece of **** then Jeff Carter. ******* glides out there and gets to play with some great teammates so he gets a free pass. Lol at the people who actually wanted this clown, guys a spoiled lucky brat.

3. Can't get over how vintage Roszival that was. Yeah the hit was a bit dirty, but the idiot straddled the blueline. Completely takes the wind of his team's sails and they lose moments later while he's crying in the locker room. How many times when he was a Ranger did our team catch the injury bug with break/tears/concussions and Roszival would just miss a game due to an "undisclosed injury" and be back for the next, as if to rub salt in the wound. He's a solid player, just a total weirdo.

What I'm saying is that if the ingestion of pubes was on the line against Ottawa, we have to conjure up something bigger for beating NJ and/or LA.

I agree with Milbury (And i dont sat that often). The whistle went. They were deep inside the line. If you watch closely Kopitar pulls up a little. Brown did not try to avoid him at all. JR is wrong he had time to make an attempt to not hit him so hard. Brown finished his check. A little upset they didnt notice the headshot.

If they're a clone of the Flyers that means they suck.

Yeah, they faced the #1, #2, and #3 seeds, and beat them all handedly.

As opposed to the Rangers who have struggled against the 8th, 7th, and 6th seeds.

I said in my post we have a chance. But if you don't think LA is the favorite in that series, I don't know what to tell you.

On top of this, Rangers have yet to win the series they are currently in.

teams dont just cruise to the stanley cup. the kings have cruised this far, theyre in for a helluva series no matter who they play. lets see how they respond to some adversity, lose game 1 at msg and we'll see what theyre made of in game 2.

Wait, wait, wait. Youre trying to tell us that was practically Rosi's fault? Are you out of your mind? Its his fault for giving up on the play slowing up because he heard the whistle? Ive heard it all

Nah, Flyers is a bad comparison.

Kings are a solid defensive team and they don't quite have the puck possession ability of the flyers.

They are more like a much more skilled Debbies team, with a better D and goaltender.

Sorry if I made it out like it's his fault, that's not what I was saying, obviously it's not his fault lol.

Dude's just a total buzzkill in all aspects. Like I said it's a salt in the wound thing. They lose, and now they have to deal with Rozy in the lockerroom with a torn ACL. Just vintage.

There is no such things as a jinx.

There's only play like you want it.

They SHOULD talk about the Cup. They should eat, sleep, ****, dream...the Cup.

This is it.

This is the chance they've dedicated their lives to reach. They're two ****ing wins away from playing in the Stanley Cup Finals. They busted their as all year.

Time to play harder than they've ever played before.

With all this said and done, I REALLY like Mike Smith. I hope we wins a Vezina some day.

but the west was weak. beating vancouver was impressive, but remember 1 of the sedin brothers missed the first 3 games. st louis? please, when was the last time they won a playoff series before this year. phoenix? the ultimate "just happy to be here" team.

Easy LA wins game two, loses game three, wins game four, loses game five, wins game six, loses game seven.
