I would have to say that we are done and the Monarchs might actually make it to the next round. Montoya is out and the team looked awful last night, I dont see us forcing a game 7 and then going on to face Portland. Manchester can get their butts kicked by Portland instead of us just like Providence has in their series.
BrokeBack Joe Rullier might make it onto the next round, isnt that just great.
So, since I'm a Bruins fan, I'm starved for playoff hockey. I have a few questions about this series and the AHL Playoffs in general.
1.- Do all the games draw this poorly? I just checked out Ticketmaster for what I could get on short notice and found only one row between me and the glass.
For some unexplained reason that has always been an issue in the AHL. Playoff attendance typically rises as teams get deeper into the playoffs, but I don't understand why people don't come to the earlier rounds even in the same numbers that came during the regular season.
i have tickets to Game 4 at MSG, dont want to go and be mad/sad..
should i just go to Hartford and cheer for the Pack?
i have never been to an AHL game before, should i go?
I have the same dilemma....Rangers game 4, or Pack game 7....but it was a rather easy choice. Gotta support the Rangers, im not gonna turn my back on them at this point. Just hope Pack win and then get tix in the next series like I will.
Does anyone actually think Hartford can beat Portland?
Don't see why not. Portland was 6-4 vs HFD this season, and right now HFD has added some very good players(Dubinsky, Staal..and they will be getting back Pock and Immonen now thats the Rangers are done), and Portland has lost some very good players (Perry, Getzlef). Could be a very even series if Holt can continue to give solid goaltending.
1st in the Atlantic vs. 2nd in the Atlantic...the way its suppose to be.
If Ducks lose Tuesday...then things could get interesting if the Ducks start sending players back to Portland
I definetely think we have a chance in this series. The Pack got some good players on a roll now and will be getting help in Pock and Immonen when they return. Portland has lost some key guys to injuries and call ups, but I think we have a shot at winning this series.
Go Ducks in the NHL!! The longer they stay in the longer the Pirates wont have the guys called up.
