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.

    • Mucked around for years playing every few years. Busted my knee and was told golf was OK so went down to a social comp. First round 118 with (somehow) a birdie on 18.
    • I think about 130, I have good hand eye coordination so improved quite quickly as I was a good Hockey player. 
    • Shot an 80 Saturday. This upcoming Wednesday would make a month since playing last. New job and change in the routine and golf has taken a back seat. I was streaky. Had some really good stretches and a couple mental breaks. Short game wasn’t good which is expected.   opened up double at one and a bogey at 2. No surprise there. 3 i blistered one off the tee and hit my wedge to 6 inches for a tap in. At 4 I blister another and hit another pretty good approach to 6 feet. Tried to Kevin Na the putt since I did think I made it. Stayed out on the high side tho. Still after a 2 putt par at 5 I’m 2 over after that awful start. Heard some really mediocre cursing while I was addressing my tee shot at 6. Was laughable that some guy yelled Jesus Christmas or something like that and I should have backed off. Ended up worm burning a short drive and hybrid layup to awkward yardage led to double at 6 then another double at 8 hurt. Ho hum par at 8 and 9 for a 6 over front: 3 doubles. I usually don’t make doubles. Seldom 3 in 9. Back was nothing spectacular: pars at 10-11. Bogeys at 12-13. Par at 14. 15-16 I was tired and could feel it. Still doesn’t excuse a 3 putt and then a bogey from a tee shot that left me 70 in. Pars at 17-18. There is some positive things to take from that round given the layoff I guess/
    • Day 49: Worked on priority piece, mostly slow rehearsals, and hit 6 balls with 7-iron. Also did short game COVID-19 day 6/7 drills. 
    • Things I learned on my first 18... If there's a group playing behind you and you feel like your rushing because of it, it's better to let them play through.  [After I did that, I landed my next 3 tee shots on the green (3 chances for birdie and 3 chances at par... missed all six shots 🤪). I need to work on my putting and chipping.  This is where I can really lower my score.
