Iím psyched about that one. The Kraken are red hot right now, but I donít think theyíll beat the Bís on their home ice.

It would be a heck of a statement if they did though.

I'd prefer it if they did.

I think all of us non-Bruins fans would.  This has been a great run, but there has to come a time where the Bs will lose in regulation at home this season.

As a Kings fan, I'd very much prefer if the Bruins laid the wood to Seattle in regulation.

On another note, I just got really nice seats for my son and I to attend the Dustin Brown jersey retirement game next month (courtesy of my StubHub class action settlement credit)!  I'll have to start saving up for the Kopitar, Quick and Doughty ceremonies that will be happening in the next 5-6 years.

Not vs. The Kraken though. It's in Seattle.  The B's will definitely lose at home in regulation. It would be imaginable not to lose in regulation at home.

Just so long as it's in mid April.   :biggrin:

Oh man .... right in the nads with that one, eh?

Solid win by the blue-and-white tonight.  Goaltending clinic put on by both Murray and Saros.  Nice PP marker to seal the W.

Really?  Unless Google lied to me, tomorrow's game is in Boston.



Anywho, Kings swept the Sharks this season.  First time they have ever done it.  Solid stuff.  James Reimer looked really hard to beat until Vilardi and Doughty potted two goals in the 3rd.  Byfield finally gets a multi-point game this season.  A goal and assist.  Maybe playing on Kopitar's wing is the answer for him for his development.  Rather than center a 3rd or 4th line, he plays shotgun with the best guy possible and learn off of Kopitar on what it takes to be a top line C.

Yeah, I was thinking 'if Boston is flying to the west coast, and then back home to play Toronto on Saturday, that ought to bode well for the Leafs'!  lol

I donít know what I was expecting, but Kraken up 2-0 after two was not it.

If we hold onto this, Iíd say thatís quite an achievement!

Whilst I'm bummed that the Kraken got the win, at least, the Leafs won't get the chance to end that streak in Boston on Saturday and I wouldn't be able to handle the smugness if that happened.

Frick...Vegas and Seattle both won yesterday.  Florida had Vegas down 2-1 more than halfway through the 3rd and gave up two unanswered goals plus an ENG.  The Pacific race is going to go down to the wire.

^^ I'm more mad at the Golden Knights/Panthers game than the Kraken beating the Bs.  Screw the Panthers for that. 

I do want to see that 1st round pick they traded in this year's draft ends up in Top 10.  So far, only three teams have traded their 1st round picks in the 2023 draft and I think the Stars and Bolts are happy about those trades.  Panthers, not so much.

Wow! Kraken score 4 goals in the first 5 shots and 12 minutes. So Chicago makes a change at goaltender.

The first *TWO* shots on goal are in the net.

6-1 in the first. WOW!

It's a better name than Connor BeDuck that I've seen around the web.  I do think the Blue Jackets would be the most ideal place for Bedard for all involved.

Holy shit the Flyers blow. They didn't show up.

And is it me but when I see Jim Montgomery behind the bench, he reminds me of Henry Winkler's character in The Waterboy.

It's really the perfect storm of awfulness that was my absolute worst case scenario for the Flyers.

They won't be good enough to make the playoffs, or will somehow squeak in and get immediately bounced. And that could in turn somehow save Chuck Fletcher's job. Gotta give some credit to Torts for getting a lot from the bad hand he was dealt. But at the end of the day the Flyers will have once again been middle of the pack at best and will have mortgaged more of the future to get to that mediocrity. And on top of it they won't have a top draft pick.

In Red Wing land, a disappointing game against the Avs today. Tomorrow they play the Yotes and HAVE to win and hopefully look pretty good in that win. They are getting people back, Fabbri is looking great, time to pull it all together and win a good string of games again. If they don't it's spinning the wheels in a year that was supposed to be a noticeable jump.

Yeah, that's been a recurring problem I've seen this season when Quick is in net.  Sure, Quick has let soft ones in more frequently than a fan would like this season, but holy cow, the team keeps thinking if they make a turnover or is not covering their guy when on D, they think Quick can bail them out, and at his age and inconsistency, that's just not going to happen at a rate that helps the team win games.

Three days of no Kings games though, so it's a waiting game hoping for teams to lose in regulations.  Yesterday was a good day for that.  Golden Knights, Kraken, and Flames lost in regulation.  More of that please.  Well, it beats waiting for the season to be over and waiting for the draft lottery.

Nice comeback win by the Leafs after Murray had a pretty rocky start.  I would've been raging if they hadn't taken two points tonight.  Hard to believe that's their first 3rd period comeback win of the season.

Pulling out this post from the middle of June.

I swore that Torts being hired in Philly was the temporary end of my rooting for the Flyers, which I've done my whole life. That was the final nail in the coffin for an organization and GM that have just made myriad of bad decision after bad decision.

Remember a time awhile back when Torts respected a guy "being true to himself and to his religion" and fully supported players kneeling for the anthem and totally did not unequivocally say they would be benched? Well, feel free to peruse Flyers news and you'll see exactly why I'm currently thrilled to have distanced myself.
