NHL Playoffs

Who's watching? Who are you cheering for? Slim pickin's this year for hockey fans in Canada, I'm glad my team made it in Smile

We kicked it off right last night, shutting out the Hawks. I've been working on Cooper, and now he says "go kuk go" haha.

Go Canucks Go!! Smile

Haven't a clue which teams are in and which are out LOL

Is Montreal in the running?

I don't usually pay attention at all unless, like last year, there is a Canadian team(s) in the quarter/semi-finals. If we get that far... then we'll start watching. Yeah... I'm a pretty fair weather fan :mrgreen:

Lol!!

Montreal is playing Boston. Pretty hot matchup I hear, I guess awhile ago a guy from Boston checked a guy from Montreal into the post at the end of the bench, he broke a vertebrae, I didn't see the game, but saw the replay, it looked pretty nasty.

Just Montreal and Vancouver made it in. Maybe we'll have an all-Canadian final this year??

I heard about that... lot of uproar about the lack of punishment they felt the Boston guy got.

And :doh: I should've known Montreal was in... they rescheduled the French debate because of it Lol

I'd love to see that! I was joking with dh last year when Montreal and Vancouver almost made it that it would be great to see a Canadiens vs Canucks... both names mean the same thing Lol

Go Canucks!!!!

We are huge Canuckers - despite being in the land of Calgary Flames (boo) and Edmonton Oilers (meh). We are looking forward to a long and exciting playoff season and the game last night was a great start!

On that note... anyone know where to find a cute maternity Canucks shirt? I can't find one online anywhere!!

Hmmmm, there was a super-cute one in the team store at Rogers Arena when my sis and I were at a game in February. It was plain blue and had "Canucks Fan On Board" written in white. I don't remember seeing it when were back there this past Monday though.

What about buying a plain one and going to Dog's Ear or something and get it printed on?

Just in case, Dog's Ear is a shirt shop that can screen-print just about anything onto shirts, sweatshirts, etc. I'm not sure if they are across canada or not, but there's usually some similar shop around.

Thanks for the input! I found that one from motherhood maternity wen I was searching around but I don't really like it.. I want more one like what buildingthedream (Andrea? Sorry, if we're not on first name basis lol) described. I saw one at one point that said "future Canucks fan" over the belly as well which I would like too. Someone else had mentioned getting a shirt custom printed but Troy (my husband) thought that might be a copyright issue..(?) :S

Oh booo that game sucked haha. I knew Chicago would be pi$$ed tonight, but I thought it would be much closer than 7-2 OUCH!!

I guess they just want to close it out at home. AND I have sold my tickets for Game 5, so I made $90 when they lost. I suppose I shouldn't complain too loudly Smile

Yeah..... that game was very painful to watch - but I'm agreeing with you -- We just want to finish it off at home

I swear, if I was further along in this pregnancy, watching these hockey games could put me into labour. I cannot handle the stress of a game 7! Tonight was just ridiculous, we should have had this in the bag!

Definately!!! It was a good game, much better than the last 2, but the ending just wasn't good.

I sure hope that they can pull it off tomorrow night. I get so tense haha. I almost threw my apple crisp across the room last night out of excitement lol. I should only eat during intermission. Blum 3

Is either the Canucks or Montreal playing tonight? I caught the OT of the Canucks game last night... they'd both better step up to the plate... I want a Canucks vs Canadiens Stanley Cup final!!! :mrgreen:

I've already sold my tickets for Round 2, game 2, so they'd better make it through!!

We play Nashville starting tomorrow night. I think we will do it in less games, we just don't have that mental block with Nashville like we had with Chicago.

I see that Montreal lost in OT Sad there goes hopes of the all-Canadian final. Oh well. The league doesn't want to see that anyways. They'd lose too many American viewers haha.

I know :bluesad: That is one of my (frivolous) dreams... to see an all-Canadian final... specifially a Canucks vs Canadiens (but I'd be happy with any 2 Canadian teams really) LOL And yeah... totally agree that networks/leagues wouldn't be happy with that... but I bet they'd have to shut down Canada for it! Lol

I have my fingers crossed Detroit pulls it off- I'd LOVE to see us play them Smile

Also- Carrie Underwood had a "bet" with our local country station- if we won the series she would donate a signed guitar to our Basics For Babies silent auction that is held at Xmas time. Thanks Carrie!! haha

Detroit and San Jose play game 6 tonight. San Jose is ahead 3-2 in the series, so Detroit has to win tonight and Thurs.

Both are tough teams I think, I mean they've got to be to make it this far, right? Smile I have a couple friends who are Detroit fans, so it would be nice to play them. And beat them!

Hi Elizabeth!! Welcome to the Canada board Smile

I live in Langley Smile Are you orginally from Dawson Creek? A lady I worked with, she was from there, and I think a few of her brothers/sisters still live there.

(Not really sure how big Dawson Creek is Smile )

That was such a good game!! Colin and I went, and I'm glad we did Smile

The atmosphere is just unbelievable! It's so electric in there. So different from a regular season game.

I haven't been to a playoff game since, ummmm, about 1988? We played Calgary, still in the Pacific Coliseum, and I bet my mom didn't even pay $60 for tickets for the 4 of us.(Compared to the $350/pr. I paid for last night- and that's my half season ticket holder price!)

Can't wait for Wednesday night!!

That's awesome you got to go to the game! I couldn't believe how loud the crowd was! It was awesome. Smile

To answer your question, I'm not originally from Dawson Creek, actually I'm a Texan. Smile I lived in Fleetwood area of Surrey for 2 1/2 years when DH and I were first married. Now his family lives in Langley. Dawson Creek is a pretty small town (around 12,000 I think) so chances are fairly good that I may know your friends or have heard of them. I've only lived here for two years, though.

Me too! :woohoo: Was kinda unimpressed at the beginning when we let SJ score first and then later tie it... but we redeemed ourselves quite well I think LOL What was that SJ player's problem??? (the one who got like 4 penalties)

Great game! I'm hoping Eager (The player with the attitude and all the penalties) gets suspended by the NHL for his actions. That hit on Daniel Sedin was not right. And I got really upset when he scored on Luongo by knocking him down and then stood over him talking smack... Grr!!

Well I missed the first 2 periods, and the first 7 minutes or so of the 3rd, but got home from ball just in time to see us score goals 4 through 7 Smile

We always have at least 1 parent hooked up through their phone giving us updates anyways Smile

I hope Eager gets a suspension too. His behaviour was completely uncalled for. At the very least the SJ coach should realize that he was the major reason they got beat by so much(since he kept taking penalties and we kept scoring!) and bench him for the next game. However, it's the playoffs, and I doubt that will happen.

No ball now until next Wed. so I can watch the whole game for the next 2 at least Smile

My window is getting very full- I have a giant flag hanging in it, and every time we win, I color a big "W" on a piece of paper and tape it to the window Smile I'm pretty sure I have room for 6 more though Wink

Doesn't look like Eager'll get any punishment for his behaviour :confused: Didn't know he was Canadian though LOL

Anybody see the flasher? :rolleyes: Dh told me about it (he read it, didn't watch the game)... the article I read said it was seen on the CBC broadcast, but I guess I missed it and didn't even hear them commenting on it (that's quite OK... I didn't need to). They said the green men weren't there?? I thought I saw them... guess not :dontknow:

Haha I didn't see her originally, I guess I wasn't home yet, but they showed the clip on the noon news yesterday, albeit blurred out Smile

Apparently she said as she was being escorted out- "I didn't know I couldn't do that"

Uhhhhh, yeah. This isn't the Kid Rock concert(that was the night before LOL) this is a hockey game.

On the other hand... why is it legal (at least in some provinces, I know Ontario is one... don't know about BC) for a woman to go topless yet they get kicked out if they do something like this? All or nothing, you know? LOL (and for the record... I do NOT agree with the law... PLEASE keep you top on!!!! And that goes for most guys too ;))

The officiating sucked in that game. Yikes!

The first period was awful. At least they made a bit of a game of it at the end. I knew they would drop one in SJ, so hopefully they will re-group and come out swinging tomorrow.

The odds are still with us! Have faith!!

And on the topless note- I thought it was legal for women to go topless here, but I could be wrong. I agree on the all or nothing. And I also agree that a lot of guys should keep their shirts on. Ewwwwwww. Lol Smile
