So I just heard that Ed Jovanovski has now tied Paul Coffey's record for consecutive games with a goal scored by a defenceman. 6 games is the record, which he now shares. That's truly remarkable considering the following: 1) how different the style of play is now than it was in the 80s; 2) how great those Oilers teams were; 3) that Jovo has been able to do it on the Canucks, which, as good as they've been, just aren't a hall of fame team and anywhere close to how the Oil were. He doesn't have near the talent to work with as Coffey had. Jovo is definitely earning his $5 million per season!

The guy is playing out of his mind right now. He's a defenceman who has all the skills of a star forward. He's scored many of his goals from right in front of the net, like Coffey used to do. When he makes mistakes or coughs up the puck at the offensive blue line, he almost always recovers (except for last night that is!) because he's got speed to burn. If the playoffs ended last night, he'd probably win MVP of the playoffs. It's nice to have two great defencemen who feed off each other in Ohlund and Jovo. People say the Canucks are a one line team, but they forget that the defense is like a 5th offensive line.

NHL teams....oh, and you forgot the Blues in St. Louis, Missourri.

Yeah - we get Fox Sports Chicago - I think the worthless Sox were playing.

Oh, not that it really matters, but I forgot to add that Jovo tied the *playoff* record for consecutive games with a goal, not counting regular season. I have no idea what the regular season record is.

So, looks like Ottawa is doing quite nicely again. They lambasted Philly 5-2. I say lambasted because they could have won by 10-2, no exageration. They manhandled them in every aspect of the game. Shorthanded, even strength, powerplay, etc. It was great. Hopefully my master plan will still fall into place afterall, knock on wood.

Oh, and how about those Ducks, hey Chizip? They got roasted this afternoon 4-1. I would like the Ducks to win the series, hopefully in 7 games, but it won't be easy against Dallas. The Ducks are very beatable if they aren't taken lightly.

So freakin arrogant...

these playoffs have also set a record for the number of overtime games in the playoffs (with the two games last night, I think it is eight).

Kansas City (Mo.) used to have a team - but they moved - and that was long before Fox Sports was even dreamed of (cable TV real early days).

Today, I believe they exsist as the New Jersey Devils (with a stint in Denver as the Colorado Rockies).

The Wild game was probably just a regional broadcast anyway.

Game day!!! The Canucks are back home now, and we're all anxiously awaiting for the drop of the puck at 7:30 pm Pacific time! This game I guess could go either way, but I really feel the Canucks will resist everything the Wild throw at them, and will come out on top. Both coaches have had 2 days to plan for this game, and the tactics must be just flying through their minds. Do the Canucks try and frustrate the Wild until the Canucks score first, since the Wild will be desperate? Or do they throw everything at the Wild as well, like they did in game 7 against the Blues? This is a tough call, but we'll see tonight!

I am going to watch this game with my parents... I am a little nervous as they lost last time I watched with my parents.....

I feel a victory coming on though, and a good long rest.

Pray tell: *why* are you going to watch it at your parents place if they lost last time there??? Angel, please consider watching it somewhere else. Please!!! If they lose, and you watched it at your parents place, you'll never hear the end of it!!!
