The Preds/Stars game was fun
Because I wanted both to kill each other
And the building to blow up
Whoops, sorry. A tad harsh.
Those two franchises right now bug me as badly as any in sports.
The Toronto/Bruins series is intriguing to me.
I hate how it will end, probably with a Bruins win.
They just have some incredibly unlikable guys as well, imo.
The Leafs are incredibly strange to watch. My whole life has been spent teaching and urging zone clears. As quickly and efficiently as possible.
Toronto appears to care less about that. If its not a clear breakout that they know will turn into a jailbreak, they simply say no thanks.
Honestly, it was fascinating to me last night. Puck would come up to one of the star wings, and Mathews or Marner would simply peek up ice. If no traffic, here we go boys. If one defender was in sight, …. "oh hell no, here D you take this back" Just found it hilarious. I realize it wasn't that bad, but it cracked me up. These are elite players, and they were acting like scared JVers with no clue. I kept waiting for a D man to beat up a coupel of the kids once they got to the bench.
Watching Chara play hot potato hockey is enjoyable. He must have been told, if you keep getting turned over, you're out. Because now, he even smells that puck coming to him, he's flinging it like its on fire and he's covered in gas.
Afraid my Sharks will take one more step out of relevancy tonight. The Vegas boys are alive and well. And the Sharks are just getting tireder and tireder.
I have a question regarding the Leafs penalty kill. Did it seem like they were playing really close to the blue line? Like they were almost daring the bruins power play to dump it in and chase after it. Maybe it was my eyes, but it looked different from the typical diamond or boxes I'm used to seeing.
