    Horrible giving up the tying goal.
    NYI is 5-2 in powerplay opportunities/42-17 in SOG(14-4 in the 3rd) and its OT now.

    Ugly.
    The NHL is unique in how often teams come back from 3-1 down or even 3-0 down in a seven game series compared to all other sports.

    I think Tampa will win it all no matter who gets game seven in phi/nyi series.

    Great to see you posting, Yuri, don't be a stranger here.

    The hated Flyers prevailed in the second OT. The Islanders dominated the shot clock -- in fact their superb top line of Matthew Barzal, Anders Lee and Jordan Eberle had more shots on goal than the entire Philly team for a good portion of the game. But the Flyers hung tough and forced a Game 7 on Saturday night. This one was played with desperation by both teams and was entertaining and very well played, playoff hockey at its best.

    Vancouver forces game 7.
    I will post more frequently.

    I agree with you on both points. This site is of the utmost importance. You might also want to try Parler and Gab.com as well.

    Go Islanders! :)

    I remember a few years ago watching Barzal when he was with the Seattle Thunderbirds. They used to play at key arena but now play at the Showare center in the city of Kent which is really a cool place. Easy to get to and park and don't have to deal with going to Seattle. Barzal was an absolute stand out in the WHL and I'm glad he's having a good career in the big show.

    If any of you guys ever make it out to Washington you should try and catch a T-birds game. The league is almost entirely white along with the crowd and the social justice crap hasn't ruined it....yet. The games against Portland or any of the other Washington state teams are always fun rivalries.

    Vancouver and Vegas tied 0-0 end of second period. Canucks with only 6 SOG for the game.

    Im rooting for Vancouver if for no other reason our cuck friends to the north live for hockey and they almost never have a team go deep in the playoffs.

    Vegas is playing a very strong, suffocating game, but the Canucks' goalie has been off the charts great the past two games. It would be nice to have a Canadian team in the final four but I don't have a rooting interest in this one. Well, maybe I do as Vegas' resident goon Ryan Reaves was given a five minute penalty and a game misconduct after giving a head shot to one of the Canucks, looked like he suffered a concussion.

    Vegas wins, avoids choking after being up 3 games to 1.

    I am pulling for Dallas-NYI Stanley Cup but I think Tampa will win it all.

    Both conferences have compelling matchups for sure. I'm pulling for the Islanders but despite being taken to seven games by Vancouver I think Vegas is gonna be hard to beat. I'll predict Vegas-Tampa in the final but hope it's Dallas-NYI.

    Islanders looking good so far, up 2-0 end of the 1st.

    I also think Vegas-Tampa in the cup final with Tampa winning it all much like when the Capitals crushed a great looking Vegas team a couple of years ago.

    Thanks.

    The Flyers absurdly pull their goalie with 6 1/2 minutes left and the Islanders instantly score to put it away. The Lightning in recent years have been branded as playoff underachievers (aka chokers), so maybe the determined Islanders can keep it going against Tampa in the Eastern Conference final.

    Great game by NYI.
    They have to go with Greiss at goalie from here on because Varlamov has eroded badly this year.

    I missed the Dallas/Vegas game and I like defensive battles.Great to see Dallas get the win.
    If(the biggest word in the dictionary) NYI can come in on a high and beat a well rested Tampa in game 1
    then the cup winner odds will move into a positive edge by taking both Tampa and Vegas to win it all on two separate tickets.
    So I have a huge interest in cheering the Islanders tomorrow.

    Tampa looks dominate, way faster game speed. Vasilevskiy is solid in net. Mikhail Sergachev is awful and giving the Islanders a chance to stay in the game.

    Vegas came back in the series to get a win yesterday. They have only given up 1 goal in the last three games.
    NYISLANDERS in a battle now with Tampa.
