    My boys beat the Wild to make the playoffs. Let’s fucking go!!!

    I hate the term "make the playoffs" This was the playoffs with the 1-4 seeds having a bye tournament.

    I’ll be watching that Maple Leafs game, what a comeback in game 4 the other day.

    Since the restart and how they’ve done the format, it’s been brilliant.

    If the Leafs lose tonight, I’ll have a couple beers in celebration as I watch that fanbase burn itself to the ground. It’s called the Qualifying Round, not round one of the playoffs; if the Leafs lose, they’re in the draft lottery because they MISSED THE PLAYOFFS.

    If the Leafs/Oilers/Jets win the lottery tomorrow night, I’ll have a couple beers in anger as those stupid fanbases add yet another topend piece to the puzzle. I’m fine with LaFreniere becoming the heir apparent in Pittsburgh; the rest of the qualifying round losers really could use a franchise player.

    A series to determine who advances to the next round...sounds like a playoff to me.

    Leafs also losing in the first round shows this truly was the playoffs.

    I'm not surprised about the Leafs considering they've been lackluster all year. Way too top heavy with horrible defense and no toughness. Dubas should be on thin ice... his all speed and skill roster is not built for the playoffs. I can see him getting the boot if next year is another unsuccessful season.

    Dubas has really been exposed as a green GM. Those 3 contracts, especially Marner's, were very very player-friendly lol. Not much left for defense and a gritty 4th line, which is invaluable for playoff hockey.

    anyone excited for tonights Draft Part 2? Who will get Lafreniere. Can you imagine if Pittsburgh or Edmonton gets him? omg

    Blues go from top team in conference to 4th seed. They need to get it together.

    That's why one of the big four (Nylander) needs to go. Trade one of them and get a top 2 or 4 defenseman. It's clear that all this firepower can't accomplish anything in the playoffs.

    Being unable to score an even strength goal despite all that money in the O is concerning too.

    At least of the options they're a team that's "deserving" of it. Imagine Pitt getting it.

    You're totally right. Pretty sure pannarin is also a left wing but can you imagine the options they will have now with lafreniere? Imagine Zibanijad centering Lafreniere...jesus.

    Oh man you got a beauty. Lafreniere was an absolute beast during Canada's run-up to win Junior gold this past Jan. The guy does it all - not only is he bigtime gifted offensively, but he HITS! Physicality to boot. He will rejuvenate that Ranger lineup. This is huge for your team.

    Good luck!

    Would love to steal a couple early games before your veteran team flips the switch; make this a competitive series, hopefully take you guys to 6-7.

    That's just downright frightening. The future for the Rangers is surely looking bright. I wonder if Lafreniere is pleased though.. I'm sure he was hoping for Montreal, but that dream ended once they eliminated the Pens, haha.

    When would they go to a shootout? Or are those not a thing in the playoffs?

    Yeah.

    I've got no horse in this race but I just love Torts and the forever underdog blue jackets. Would love to seem them eliminate the lightning again!

    You guys dominated game three, as expected. As a Canucks fan, I’d much prefer being up 3-1 than tied 2-2...

    The Avs with a huge win with Kadri leading the way with 2 goals and a helper. Damn, Leafs could have used a guy like that against Columbus... oh wait

    This is what I was scared of: the Blues are coming in waves, we’re making mistakes and punting on 3rd downs.

    I know it’s a best-of-seven, but Wednesday sure feels like an elimination game to me...

    I hate to say it but putting Allen in the net seemed to be the difference maker. Oh well, Binnington isn't going anywhere. It really sucks that Tarasenko and Steen are injured right now but at least we've tied up the series.

    Wow. It still hasn’t set in that the boys did that.

    We’re going to need to replicate that performance versus Vegas: Markstrom steals games, our powerplay plays lights out. I think Vegas in 6, but we’re playing with house money and I’m going to try my best to enjoy this ride. Why not us?

    These playoffs have been quality.

    3 games all tied 3-3 in the semis. That Flyers/Islanders game was really good.

    The fact that we even came back from 1-3 to force game 7 has me super pumped, that we absolutely stole games 5 and 6 with our goalie of the future has me ecstatic.

    If we lose tonight, it will still have been an outstanding playoff run. If we win, I really like our chances against Dallas in the Western Conference Final. Dare I dream?

    I've watched Demko play since he was 17. Awesome to see him playing so well the last two games, and the team having the success they are. I'm hoping they can win tonight and then beat Dallas. Don't care to see Dallas in the finals.
