I'm a life long hockey fan. Happy to have a local team! When I lived in Colorado I was a huge Avs fan, and before that a Bruins Fan. My new dog is named after the Columbus rookie goaltender. He even has his own doggie jersey.
Any Hockey Fans out there? Who is your team? and your pick for the Stanley Cup Match up?
My team is failing miserably, (I'm holding out unrealistic hope of course!) but we made it and I'm extatic with that! So now I have to live vicariously through others!

Boston Bruins fan here. Been with the black and gold since the Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito, and Gerry Cheevers days. One of the thrills of my life was meeting Orr and getting an autograph from him. (wish I could find it!). Had the Cheevers mask with all the stitches on it and played street hockey with it a ton. The B's have gone through some tough but some exciting years here and there. But this years' team evokes the memories of the 70's teams. Sweeping Montreal was awesome! (sorry my Canadien brothers) Hope they can go all the way.
Boy, what an end to the Jackets/Wings Series last night! I was fortunate enough to be a part of that, and it was truly unbelievable. The fans didn't want to sit! We came back twice from a 2 goal deficit, but lost on a power play goal (in the last minute!) involving a somewhat controversial call. The third period was totally "Hudson Bay/Pond Hockey" rules, so virtually penalty free. Well I should say CALLED penalities, plenty of penalizing going on! The jackets even had a player that was tripped intentionally before the puck was dropped on the face off and no call was made! But we had a great season and know this is just the beginning! The heart that our group of guys have is great and not really something I've seen before quite like this. They even took the time to salute the fans after the handshake at the end of the game.
How about the Ducks/Sharks game! What an earth shattering event hehehe. I tuned in just in time to see them fixing the glass that shattered between the benches.
Well I'm looking forward to watching Boston Togo. They now have my backing! I hope they make it this year! Its been to long!
When I can find it on TV, I watch hockey purely for the brawling and wanting to see somebody get his bell rung from a vicious check, especially ones that shatter the side glass.

TheCarolinaScotsman Your Canes played a great game the other night. They dominated especially in the first two periods. They deserevd the win big time. Cam Ward scares me. A hot goalies in the playoffs can go a long way. If he plays goal like the rest of the series, we may be in big trouble.
I do miss the old Hartfiord Whalers though. Mostly their old team song Brass Bonanza!
Ouch. Carolina gets another big win! Again they outplayed Boston so they get the well deserved win. The thing that has impressed me is their speed. They fly around the ice. Come on B's get the mojo back.!
TCS my Bruins have their backs against the wall. Your Canes have shown they are the better team right now. They are stifling the Bruins. We can't even get shots on goal never mind score any! Great forechecking and disrupting the Bruins attack. Come on B's let's get tonight's game!
