Miscellaneous NHL Talk XIV - Playoff Stretch Drive Edition (Magic Numbers in OP)

It is my great and weighty privilege to start the latest installment of this general NHL discussion.

Enjoy!

The tome of sagacity that was our previous discussion can be found here.

Will be fun to watch Kuznetsov's first NHL-game tonight. Will he become a NHL-star or is it back to KHL again in a year or two?

I saw Kuznetsov play with the Reading Royals last year. He looked pretty good. At least I think it was him...

Nope. Never played in a NA league.

Evgeny Grachev maybe then. I guess I was confused because it was the Royals and they are affiliated with Washington.

I added a magic number table in the OP, if anyone wants to keep track of the East race.

I'm thinking about going to Montreal for a game in April against the Isles or Red Wings. Have any of you guys been there?

Montreal is great and the Bell Centre is awesome.

If you go to a game, make sure you also visit the Habs' hall of fame (in the Bell Centre) and visit the upper level to see their hall of champions. It's a great experience if you're interested in the history of the franchise.

Thanks for the info. I have always wanted to see a game in Montreal, as the atmosphere seems amazing. I will check out the Habs HOF and Hall of Champions. I love being a Flyers fan with our history, but there is something special about the Canadiens.

Mike Green just looked like a pylon 50 seconds into the Caps/Pens game and it results in a goal.

My god, Crosby just got "slashed" and it looked like he lost his hand. Of course they score on the PP.

I smell a main board thread. "Crosby scores with one hand left in the game"

anyone noticed that play by the Pens where a Dman takes the winger place and winger takes the Dman during neutral zone face-off and if Crosby wins the face-off they just dump it in and the winger comes flying to retrive the puck.

i hope the Flyers notice that.

If I just saw/heard right, Crosby just got the Pens another PP on a play that had no right getting them one. Pathetic right now. Crosby touched?? Must be a penalty.

Hasn't this been SOP for the last 5 years?

You realize we want the Pens to win, right? I've been rooting for the Pens since December. Pretty much every win they get is good for us.

Still like to see the game played the right way. It's sad he got two PP's for his team when they shouldn't have been. Doesn't matter who I am rooting for, still is pathetic the way he acts on the ice.

Shea Weber just killed Anderson. With a shot.

Also, strange that Weber is playing the left side(right handed) while Josi plays the right side(left handed)

EDIT: MY god, Shea Weber just killed Ceci now. Unreal.

^^ Agree completely.

I have seen Zibby play countless times now, and watching Couts play with the Flyers, there is no debate who is the more talented player right now. Potentially I think Couts still has a higher ceiling. He is nowhere near the player Couts is right now, even funnier Couts is producing better offensively as well.
