INTERFERENCE!

I thought the days of the trap were left behind in the "old" NHL. It's just the first-round, but it's pretty obvious that certain (*cough,* hack*) teams are utilizing it effectively so far.
Bah, thank the Devils for making the NHL so boring compared to how it was in the early 90s. Not only did they play the trap to perfection, they managed to slow the game down to the speed of molasses in the process.

The early 90's had nothing on the 80's, those were the days of the high flying offenses and end to end rushes. Goalies with a GAA below 3.5 were considered elite. Any GAA below 3.00 and you were a Vezina candidate. Now, every starting goalie except Koizig was below 3.5 and most were below 3.00

The wars between the Nordiques and Habs and the Battle of Alberta, Edmonton scoring over 400 goals a season from 81-86, the peak of Gretzky vs Lemieux and the best goalie was the one who didn't let in the 5th goal.

I wish I was more alert, and slightly older during the 80's. The last truly great playoff year for me was 1993, when Gretzky and the Kings almost won it all...against Montreal! '94 was runner-up, with Messier and the Rangers. The heroics in that final series were legendary.

Montreal lost tonight, but all is not lost. Huet was very impressive in key moments. I think they can still win the series if they learn to start a game with the same intensity and drive they have in the final moments.

'93 was the first year i was old enough (2nd grade) to watch sports and know what was going on. i remember the isles beating the pens, and then being pissed at montreal when they beat them. i was pumped when la was playing well, but got really confused about the mcsorely blade-curve call.

the next year rocked so hard. mark messier was (is) my favorite player ever, and i remember watching the devils series, and being really sad and nervous, but when mess predicted the win, i was so ready. the finals against the canucks was one of my greatest sports memories ever. richter's save on bure, and mess lifting the cup. that and trying to explain to my grandma who jeff beukeboom was and why craig mctavish didn't have to wear i helmet.

I'm rooting for Montreal as well, GG. Hopefully they'll have a good game tonight, and continue on to the next round.

Well, Montreal's out.

At least there are still 3 Canadian teams left in the running. Go Edmonton!

I feel so bad for you, GG.... They really played their hearts out, and lost it on a fluke play. Ryder must feel awful, as well...he was on the ice at the time. Next year, next year.
