These two teams are stupid fast.

True and Vegas had a size advantage and it played out in their matchup.
Every game in the Cups Playoffs has been fun to watch as usual.
I would like to see Tampa and Vegas in the finals.

The Av's are surprising good this year. I hadn't seen many of their games,
but they have been very good in the playoffs !!!  :beer:

  I doubt it will happen, but I'd love to see the Islanders in the finals again.  I was just a wee boy when they had their dynasty run.

Vegas yes, Tampa, no… I think that the officials know that the two fourth-lines want to line brawl…

I wouldn’t be surprised is Barry Trotz starts, the fourth-line as well as Tampa an there is a line brawl at the start of game three on Thursday… 

I think the Isles win in 6. Vegas in 6 as well I think the Habs can win a couple games just because of Carey Price, but I don’t know that they have enough to make it to the finals.

If they win Games 3 and 4 in the Coliseum. I think they can win the series. Even if it goes back to Amalie 2-2 they can win the series. I think it favors Tampa if the series goes 7 games though.

Game 3 & 4 should be some great hockey! I'm rooting for NYI.

That was crazy.

Felt so bad for Staal.

Then Fleury took him off the hook.

 

They should give Fleury a primary assist on the tying goal 😉

I haven't been watching but I've heard the reffing, go figure, has been quite shitty.

Best sport, worst league.

Game last night was awful. The most egregious one was Corey Perry getting slapped in the face with a stick, bleeding profusely as he went straight to the locker room. No call.

Don't think that didn't get noticed by yours truly.

They always swallow the whistle in the playoffs. When it is your team involved you just hope the calls or non-calls even out.

Yea and they showed the replay, too. Sad.

Yea that’s stupid. Why even bother having rules at all if they’re not going to be enforced properly?

Gray space. ... Oh crap we did that discussion already.

That said it is a remarkable difference between what they call in the regular season where a game isn't worth so much and the playoffs.

It probably is something the league needs to look at. It's really almost like two different games when we get to the second season.

Didn’t that used to be a 5 minute major/game misconduct? A second stick foul by the same player in the playoffs was subject to a supplemental discipline?

I don’t think Jonathan Marchessault did it intentionally. If Perry wanted to make sure it was called, you are coached to stay down.

Corey Perry is tough though.

It really is. And it’s stupid that it’s like that.

And I’m also especially bitter about it because the Devils got killed in Game 6 of the 2012 SCF on a 5 minute boarding major that should have never happened because the officials missed a high stick or something earlier in the shift that would have put them on the power play.

I honestly don’t remember that.

It doesn’t matter if it’s intentional or not. Or if the player stayed down. Chances are if he stayed down, they still wouldn’t call the penalty and all he’d do is force his team to play down a man for a bit.

He got up and immediately went to the bench so another player could jump on. He did his job. The refs did not.

Still should have at least been called… it would have been reviewed and probably upheld as a 5 and 10, but mitigating circumstances might have made it a double-minor. 
 

In other news, the Isles win game four against Tampa to tie the series and guarantee at least one more game in the Coliseum.

I really thought Vegas was making a mistake by benching Fleury, but you got to hand it to Lehner. He was very good last night.

DeBoer has pulled that lever one too many times now. Fleury's time in Vegas is over, but shouldn't be. He's always made an occasional stupid mistake, but he makes up for them.

I agree. What is DeBoer going to do when Lehner lets 3 in within the first 12 minutes tomorrow?

Lehner was a good playoff goalie… in the AHL for one season.

    • Yeah, and although you didn’t reach the green, you did clear the hazard. Im still kicking myself that we didn’t surprise them with their challenge ball on 13 (could be misremembering the number but it was the long par 4), they would’ve had to have relied on getting up and down from a fair distance for that par. Blue may have still won, but it would’ve potentially made the conclusion that much more nail biting. Whens the next one coming??? 😉
    • Been a decent run lately for me. A triple here and there but I did have one round with just 2 doubles and the rest pars and bogeys. Have a strange new feel that has me flushing the ball. On the backswing I feel as if I'm pushing the club outside. For whatever reason the feel has me really striking the ball well. Sucks it's almost October. 
    • I still remember flying one over the apartments to try and drive the green. Not sure what course that was at. But that trip was definitely a lot of fun! I wonder if @bkuehn1952is healed yet from that butt kicking. 😉
    • I quit golf all the time. Usually when I’m playing poorly around the 14th hole 😃 I don’t think I’ve ever actually quit playing golf. I’ve taken breaks here and there but that’s not really quitting. I’ve taken several weeks away from golf at times for various reasons such as injuries, work/life obligations, and being mentally burnt out from trying to hard to improve my swing. I’ve come to learn that my enjoyment of the game has evolved over time. I used to think that I’d enjoy it more if I played better, but it’s all relative. Whether you’re a 5 or a 25, you’re going to hit good shots and poor shots relative to your own abilities and standards. Today I might be displeased with a shot that I would have been happy with ten years ago. And ten years ago, I would have been ecstatic shooting a score I’m not happy with today. I’ve learned that the process of improvement itself is what I enjoy, but it hasn’t made my individual rounds any more enjoyable now that I’m shooting scores 10-15 strokes lower than in the past. I’ve also discovered that I like golf course architecture and learning design aspects. I’m not particularly knowledgeable but it still adds an extra layer of enjoyment while playing. And the last thing but certainly not the least is being a part of this community and having been to various outings, I’ve met a bunch of great people and had great experiences. Golf is much more fun with friends than by myself or paired up with strangers.
