Calder Cup!

Now, I know you're all probably excited for the Stanley, but we have to remember Stanley's bastard younger sibling, Calder. As a new resident of Hershey, PA, it's hard not to.... because the HERSHEY BEARS (formerly the Hershey B'ars, no joke) are IN THE PLAYOFFS. Woohoo! That means live hockey in my backyard! (almost literally!)

For someone from the West Coast, the concept of semi-big name live hockey within a normal day's drive (or for me now, a fifteen minute drive, sans traffic!)is sort of exciting. There IS no AHL team in the Portland, OR area, (or in Seattle) and NHL wise, you'd be going to see the Canucks and driving through all of Washington State to get there.

But I'm not exciteably camping on the Giant Center website ofr them to open Bears playoff tickets...

Not at all. :-)

Have any of you read this?

This article made me cry so hard. I couldn't help it.
Go Senators.

Not This Year

*sigh* They played well, those Sabre boys. I can't complain, especially not about Ryan Miller who made some awesome saves.

Now, just have to make the calendar -- hmmm, 4 1/2 months till next season opens!


PS I'm still anti-Hasek, read anti-Detroit. Skate you Ducks, skate!

The fat lady sang

She just stepped off the stage after singing a rousing aria called "Overtime", and she's carrying large bouquets of red, black and white flowers with a Senators logo on them ;) Sorry Buffalo fans *g*

It's a New Day

One game at a time, one game at a time. Granted, I am an optimist, but stranger things have happened!

Pronger Hit

Any of you guys see this? I mean, suspend the bastard. I'm not a huge Red Wings fan by any means (I still have a Hasek aftertaste), but that hit was ridiculous.

That Duck needs his wings clipped.

Tonight's Game

Keep those fingers crossed, Sabres fans!

IF ONLY ....

....the Rangers and Sabres could have played one another for The Cup rather than this early in the playoffs. (since my Avs and Leafs decided to play in the early bird golf tournament rather than the hockey post season that is).

What I mean is Twig, Jonesy, and Zarzuela what a well played rivalry, both on the ice and on the KAL. It was a lot of fun for me to sit back and watch you guys play together. I wish it could have lasted longer.

Jonesy and Zarzuela I guess you know I'll be rooting your team on now.

Only 8 Wins Away!

... for Buffalo, of course!

Congrats Sabres Fans

I'm pretty disappointed that the Rangers are out of the play-offs. I think a couple of the games we lost should have been ours, but I guess those are the breaks. Buffalo outplayed us soundly in the first and last games -- in the rest, I think we gave them a much harder time than anyone expected so I'm glad of that. I also think that overall the Rangers gave all they could and it just wasn't enough. We'll do it next year.

In the meantime, GO REDWINGS!

See you at the Garden

Oh, boy what a game. Too bad we came up on the short end of the stick. All I can say to Buffalo fans is See you at the Garden!

Seeing Eye Dogs

Yes, that's exactly what those boys in Toronto doing the video review need. It was a goal. It WAS a goal. Everyone in the bar (okay, maybe we'd all had a few beers, maybe) saw it. Come on, then we would have had overtime!

hating Jagr,

I bleed blue!

Just thought I would take the time to introduce myself. My name is graymama. I grew up in St. Louis, so I am a Blues fan, of course! I did live in Minneapolis for 4 years, and the Wild also have my heart. (Too bad they have disappeared from the playoffs already!) Everyone has to have a team they despise too, and mine is the Red Wings. Remember I am a Blues fan.

Pronger was my favorite player, but who leaves Edmonton for Anaheim?! Honestly!
Go Canucks!!!!

I am working on a blanket for Project Linus while watching the playoff action.

Happy needles and hockey sticks everyone!
