    The Tranplanner household is on full alert - Leafs Jersey has been laundered, snacks have been stockpiled. Just need to get some beer and I'm all set.

    This will be my first playoffs without cable (I'll get Leafs/Sens, Habs/Bruins, and Flames/Canucks on CBC in the first round). Wish me luck!

    Oooo, we're worried because we're not sure if the cable company we have to switch to offers the hockey package. I think I'll cry if I can't see Stars games. Oh, and NHL Tonight on ESPN is also rumored to be done, so I can't watch that or Hockey Night.

    We've got beer, snacks, and jerseys waiting.. I've just got to go home and hang the Stars Flag!

    I'm totally psyched this year... I have a feeling the Leafs will be doing well. The last two shutout games gives me greater confidence in Belfour. Toronto has put Ottawa away in previous years, so I think it will be a good round to watch on t.v.

    I'll be rooting for the Leafs first, then all the other Canadian teams second (except Vancouver). I'll also root for anyone that plays against the Red Wings or Philly.

    If I wasn't at a Planning Board meeting tonight, I'd be glued to the B's - Habs game.....I love this rivalry almost as much as Sox - Yankees.

    Go B's!!

    Heh... don't even get me started in on this. I'm VERY peeved at the bad officiating. One of the Canadian team's goals was questionable, and one of the American team's goals was definitely in, but then determined to be a no-goal. Grrrrrr! I don't mind losing to the Canadians, but on such a key game you would think they would at least *try* to keep it fair and square!

    I only listened to the game on the radio so I didn't see the goals, or not-goals, but I definitely agree that the US goal at the end should have been counted. All three commentators on radio were sure it was a goal plus they saw the video replay - which, for whatever strange reason, the referee and goal judge did not.

    It sounded like the refereeing is very subjective - depending on the quality, experience, size and fitness of the teams playing. It is very strange.

    Off-topic:

    Yeah, I agree. I'm not as familiar with international hockey or its officiating, so that's probably why I get extra frustrated. I'm actually glad the Canadians won... the country is so proud of their winning teams. If the US won, they'd be lucky to get a small blurb on some inside page of the sports section in the US. I wish that as much attention is paid to women's sports in the States as they are up here.

    I got stuck at our Planning Board meeting until 9 p.m. but it doesn't look like I missed much of a game.

    No, you didn't. Watched the first 2 periods of the Avs - Stars game before I went to bed (mostly to catch any B's - Habs highlights). So far soo good for Raycroft! Wish I could have watched the game.

    I've been celebrating the beginning of baseball season all week. I just hope my Royals can win the AL Central this year. And the Tigers are 3-0. Ah, hope springs eternal.

    Raycroft was amazing! But watching the Avs game was similar... Abischer (sp?) was amazing as well. I love playoff hockey. Now if someone could just kick Detroit and Vancouver around the block, then I'll be a really happy puppy. Can't wait for the Leafs game tonight...

    I only made it through the first period of the Flames-Canucks last night. Looked like a good game (except for the score), but it was 11:30p.m., and I was done in.

    Had to revive this thread after watching a GREAT 2ot thriller between the B's and Habs last night....

    Raycroft continues to amaze me with his poise under pressure....and the Habs got exactly what they deserved on the game winning goal after the whole fake injury by Ribiero the other night.....WTF was Kovalev thinking whining about a slash (which if you watch the replay, never connected to his hands he was so frantically waving in "pain"), running into his own teammate, and leaving the puck laying right there for Murray?

    Late night, but sooooooo worth it!

    Go B's!

    I don't think Raycroft has been that amazing since the first game. He has some good ones for the highlight reel from time to time, but overall he let in some softies last night too.

    I'm totally surprised by Belfour, however. I'm not his hugest fan, but he's converting me slowly... too bad I have a night meeting tonight during the game.

    Yeah...he's let in some soft goals.....but he's doing this year exactly what Theodore did to the Bruins 2 years ago in the first round....big late in games, stealing the series (in which MTL has outplayed the Bruins for the most part).

    I didn't watch much last night, but did anyone see the winning goal Young made on Monday night? It was in OT, about 3-4 minutes in. I screamed so loud, I'm sure our neighbors thought I was crazy.

    If the Stars don't pick up the pace though, I don't think they'll make it much further. It's depressing, they can be such a great team and sometimes it's like the play like they don't care.

    Loads of fun going down 0-2 to Philthydelphia. Have to even it up tonight. It'll be a battle for sure.
