    Avs - carolina final.

    But if wild beats vgk, it's a warning.

    For the lord stanley. I hold wild as an strong outsider, and the first round is often the toughest and Vegas is a difficult team.

    But hell... There's so many good teams. Ofc I can only guess..and this is my wiiild-guess. 🤷‍♀️😏

    Not saying this is gonna happen, but every time the Leafs and Habs have met in the playoffs, the winner of that series has gone on to win the Cup.

    Just thought I’d throw that out there.

    Interesting fact. (can't been that many times huh..?)

    So in other words, are you sayin I should put all my savings on the team that qualify into the next round from that serie? 🙄🤔😏

    Yeah. I wouldn’t bet on it.

    And I personally have no stock in these playoffs. I happen to be a lifelong Rangers fan, since 80. They’ll be relevant soon. I expect a lot of wheeling and dealing in the off-season. Too many kids, and lots of holes in that roster.

    Heard a swedish coach with name Sam Hallam was in the discussion to take over the 'blue shirts'. But just a roumer.

    Rangers is definitely coming - like many other teams. NHL is fun that way - We get no Barcelona, Real Madrid or Juventus.

    As it is now - I hold Tampa as the crown, but probebly not for that long.

    Nice - SH goal too.

    Almost like in the game - when you get tripped on a breakaway.. And you try to left/right deke the goalie 😄

    Trust me, I’m much happier with the cap than without it.

    The Rangers tried to go the way of Barcelona and Real Madrid, getting all the high priced free agents back in the late 90’s to try to get another Cup. It never worked. They’d be the highest paid team year after year, and they’d miss the playoffs year after year.

    If you know anything about which players were really good from back then, just look up some of the teams they had. Toms of talent, just no chemistry.

    Yeah it's been proven, time after time, you cant really buy success. All though I think it can help - to have some money - but there's so much more then that.

    I heard Eichel could be a name for you guys - Speaking of stars and money... 😏

    Im gonna put my hope to jets now when the blues seem to be gone.

    Im having a hard time getting a team to cheer for.. I like alot of teams - but I wanna find my true love ..

    Perhaps I will try to be a 'kraken' next season - cause of the connection between the name and the nordic monster that ruled here according to the myth. 😱😊

    Jets sweep The Connor McDavids in triple OT. LETS GOOOOOO!!

    My boy Nik had an amazing return in Game 3 after being out for a month with injury.



    Seriously this kid has one of the best (and sneakiest) wrist shots in the league.

    I love the - piiing - as the sound from the hit of the post.

    Nik is underestimated - so is the whole jets.

    They finished off pretty weak, therefore I thought they lost the touch, but they layed edmonton to rest pretty comfortably.

    Go jets

    Next game will be first Canadien game that fans will be allowed.

    2.5k

    Not much, but something..

    I can feel it's abit unfair - this whole thing with fans on the game.

    Like canes - they got more or less the whole areana behind them - which of course makes a huge difference.
