Not the most popular sport around but I know there some fans here.
Would love to hear some thoughts on the regular season, playoffs and playoff predictions.
For me, I'm a doomed Caps fan all of my adult life and I will pull for any team playing the Penguins, lol.

Some new faces back in the playoffs.
Ave's, Devils, and how 'bout the expansion Vegas Golden Knights

Looking forward to a few of the first round matchups and a couple of the best teams will NOT be moving on.
The PA series, Leafs vs. Bruins, Vegas vs. LA....hell, they're all good.

Edit: Speling & bracket updates

    I'd like to see the CBJs finally win a series.

    I’ll be pulling for the Leaf’s

    The Golden Knights would also make a great story

    Sorry I can't stand with you on this one. I like CBJ and that Jones kid. Just too bad they meet the Caps in the first round.

    The new Leaf's are a likable young group and fun to watch.

    Vegas IS quite a story. A little too much too soon for this salty fan.
    What's impressive to me is the management and how they prepared, assembled and managed this team.
    Unprecedented.

    And were off!

    A couple of great games yesterday although the Flyers missed the flight and never showed up.

    Anderson stood on his head to get one back for the Leafs.

    Caps finally get a lucky bounce in 2OT.

    Calling @lanemyer85 . Need some expert analysis injected here or this thread will wither.

    Tough to comment on all the games in the first round but the various series have not been very dramatic.
    The PA series is a huge letdown.

    Looking forward to tonight's first game 7 of the playoffs.
    Leafs at Bruins.
    It should be a barn-burner of a game.

    .......and it was until late in the 3rd period. Give Boston credit for bucking up and pulling through.

    Edit: This spectacular second round is more than making up for the lackluster first round.

    How can anyone pull for the Bruins with Brad Marchand on the roster?
    GROSS!!

    Conference finals are set.
    Losing Nashville is probably a big ratings hit.
    Vegas Vs. Nashville would have been a dream matchup for NBC but Winnipeg spoiled it. And good for them.

    The Caps finally beat Pittsburgh and are finally moving past the second round.
    Tampa will be very difficult to beat because of their depth and skill.

    Edit:
    I won't bump for now due to lack of interest but..... LET'S GO CAPS!!

    FUDGE!!!!

    Caps blew their 2 game lead. :'(

    Edit:
    Aaaaaand they shut out the Bolts the final 2 games to move on the Stanley Cup Finals!!!

    Edit:
    OMG.....1 game away from claiming the Cup. As a lifelong Caps fan, I can't even allow myself to imagine what could be.

    I've been a huge fan for over 30 years and this is one of the happiest day of my sports life.

    Here's a ticket from one of the first games I went to.
