Tranplanner said: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!

[OT]jmf said:It sounded like the refereeing is very subjective - depending on the quality, experience, size and fitness of the teams playing. It is very strange.
Habanero said:I got stuck at our Planning Board meeting until 9 p.m. but it doesn't look like I missed much of a game.
NHPlanner said: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.
nerudite said: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.
Mastiff said:The refs got one back for you!
Mastiff said:Oh, and you have some nerve calling anything "filthy"... swamp rat.
Gedunker said:So you don't like the neutral-zone trap? :-0
nerudite said:I'm not a big fan of the trap. Makes games slow and boring in my opinion.
michaelskis said:I am starting to get nervious. Who cares who's in goal. The wings need to score more than one goal in 6 periods of play. :-\
Mark said:NH Planner, I assume you like the Bruins. Is LaPointe worth the $. I use to watch Sergie Samsonov when he played for the Detroit Vipers in the IHL.
Gedunker said:Well, that happens some times. Great teams overcome bad calls ;-)
Gedunker said:Hey, swamps are great things -- cleaning the water, providing haven for all manner of wildlife. Not that Broad Street is devoid of its share of rats...
Mastiff said:Cleaning the water?! With toxic waste? And what haven for wildlife... those eight legged frogs, two headed turtles, and three-eyed fish? At least the rats on Broad Street look like rats! (Even if they are bigger than poodles...)
Gedunker said:Hmmm, I don't recall ever mentioning anything about Three Mile Island in this thread. :-D
You still have to win one more to get past us. Yeah, yeah, I know something about the "Fat Lady" clearing her throat. May the best team win.
Mastiff said:TMI?! Sheesh... what a reach. Harrisburg is only sixty miles closer to Philly than East Rutherford! And the fat lady is at the mic...
Mastiff said:Nor the Boston-Habs matchup!
Gedunker said:Had to go TMI: even this Jersey boy wouldn't go to south Philly ;-)
NHPlanner said:Never said it was.....I don't think the B's or the Habs are complete enough a team to win it all....I still like either Toronto or Tampa to survive the Eastern Conference....though I'd love to see the Bruins make it, and play havoc with the Democratic National Convention. ;-)
