I remember posting regularly at the HOJ because I wasn’t sure this place was legit.

I don't even remember what happened at Andrew's to cause this place to exist in the first place. I just remember Mark being a dick but can't remember why.

I remember Frugal being weird and calling himself The Human Abstract after dodging us for a couple weeks.

I guess I don't know what this means. Using a code I got in an email, I could still buy tickets today through the Stars. The public ticket sale isn't supposed to begin until tomorrow....

We bought off the secondary market, and the entire fam is going to game 4 for a fairly reasonable price on the secondary market. Very excited.


When I logged on with the Insider presale, there was virtually nothing available direct from the Stars. I guess they held some back for general sale.

Montreal has 96 points and didn’t get in. Bummer for them, especially because they didn’t have the best lineup, but still played well. 96 points is better than 3 qualifying Western conference teams. They did cap off the season with a crazy win against TO, so a little solace there.

I'm not feeling great about this series. My guess is we win one home game and that's it. Preds in 5.

Us vs them.
The shot totals are a bit discouraging.

And there's still the mystery of Zuccarello. Was he even there for any of the fan appreciation stuff?

On a related note, the Preds are claiming to be fully healthy.

Any of the Central teams are scary. We've played well against all of them at times. Monty says Zuccarello is good to go. Maybe that's kinda bullshit, but his missing the past two games plus the mini break before the playoff start, that's a good chunk of recovery time.

My Zuccarello truther concerns come from stuff like this:



If he is fully healthy and ready to play, this isn't how I'd say it. This sounds like a coach describing an injured player trying to recover.

I hear he went to Lombard Custom and got a couple of nice new suits, so I think he's in good shape.

Here are the practice lines:
- Zuccarello practiced today!
- the D pairs go back to what they were over the past month
- Nichushkin and Ritchie are scratched because they suck
- looks like Dowling will play for Spezza, probably because Monty doesn't want Nashville to be able to roll their top line out against slow Spezza shift after *poo poo*.
- interesting to see Hintz as the 2nd line center with Dickinson as top line LW.

Should the Cogliano-Faksa-Comeau line be called the FCC line because they can shut you down?

I thought Dickinson looked good there in previous games.

That top 6 actually...isn't bad? It's not exactly instilling the fear of Kucherov into opponents, but I feel like there is some scoring depth in there.

There is a big difference between feeling like there is some scoring depth and the reality that there really isn't.

I figure they're overdueski. I mean *poo poo*, how many posts can you hit? How many ridic goalies can you run into? How many breakaways can you flub? They should be ready to light 'em up. ;)

They've been overdueski forever. I don't think they're suddenly going to start scoring now.

When did the Islanders move back to Nassau County? I thought they played at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
