5 hours.

Get some sleep, Hawks. It's going to be a tough series.

Sports fans on the west coast are so lucky to be in that time zone, makes watching a little easier. As much as I would have liked to, there's no way I could have watched almost six full periods of hockey last night/this morning.

I watched every minute of that game, it was excellent but I'm paying for it today

Yeah, I packed it in after the first overtime.

Maple Leafs just parked a Brinks truck in front of Mike Babcock's house. Looks like 8 years, $50 million.

Well.... Well, well, well....

I'm not sure this is the greatest idea considering the state of the franchise but its certianly going to be interesting.

Babcock is overrated. Sure, he's a good coach, but he could never get his players ready for the big ones and blew a lot of series.
He had mega loaded teams with Detroit. Anyone who walks into a roster with the likes of Yzerman, Lidstrom, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, etc and can only muster 1 cup in 10 years is a disappointment. This has been in the works a while and doesn't at all come as a surprise.
Regardless, from all of what I've seen and heard, he's a good man and a solid coach. Good luck to wherever he goes.

There are a fair few gold medals around Canadian international players' necks that say otherwise.

That's cause Canada had by far the best roster in the field.
I'm talking about playoffs and having his teams not choke off up 3-1 and 2-0 in huge series' nearly every year.
I've watched this guy's teams for 10 years, he's not that great.

Just getting to the playoffs at this point would be a major accomplishment.

Originally, I thought the Hawks would take this series in an epic game 7 and redeem themselves for last year.

Now I'm revising my prediction to Ducks in 6. One shot on goal in 10 minutes of power plays? Get the fuck out of here. It was hard to watch. The Ducks were so physically dominant, it was like playing a brick wall. We're too small and too injured to win this series.

It doesn't help that our coach is coddling the players and dressing backups in the middle of the series because he wants to keep our best depth "fresh." For what? It's do or die. If two lines are getting great looks, don't fracture them for winning a long, tiring game. It's fucking working!

The only real hope is that the Ducks get a bunch of injuries of their own. Since he's on his last legs anyway, maybe they'll put Timonen to work for once, in a Tonya Harding role.

Meanwhile, I'm thrilled with what I've seen out of Tampa so far. The ratings would suck, but Ducks/Lightning would be a good series. Just no Rangers, please.

3 goals surrendered in 37 seconds. Mere minutes after going up 3-1.

I hate sports.

I've never been more grateful. It would've been 2 am if I'd been watching that game at home

IDK, I feel like it worked. The team needed to win that game 2 so they didn't go into 3 down two already, but I think they kinda just let game 3 go so they could be more rested for the rest of the series. I mean, I feel like it worked...however:

This was fucking atrocious and they're not going to take it all if they continue to let this shit happen. Never forget, they did the same thing many times in both the Predators and Wild series as well.
