Pens / Canes
 
can't wait for game 1

Gonna be another nailbiter series. Carolina is a Team of Destiny and no one else is playing hotter than Cam Ward. Game 1 is in Pittsburgh.

They're all that stands between the Penguins and a return trip to the Finals.

Well damn, didn't the game just end, like, 10 minutes ago??? Quick on the draw!

Should be another great series, pitting the 2 hottest teams in the league heading into the playoffs.

The Canes seem to be a gritty team willing to do whatever is necessary to win. They played some great defense tonight.

I just hope the refs let them play the ECF like they did tonight.

Especially since the Terrible Curse set up the series. Bruins fans were waving yellow towels.

Don't know why that is, unless there's some kind of scheduling conflict with Mellon Arena this week. Otherwise it makes no sense at all. That means that the Hawks and Wings will start Sunday afternoon, which doesn't surprise me - it's a ratings win for the networks and the league. Carolina in the ECF is a ratings fail, unfortunately. Nobody outside of the Carolinas gives a shit about the Canes, so the ratings won't be nearly as good as the Hawks and Wings.

EDIT: You are correct - the Pens do start Monday and Thursday, and the obvious reason is because NBC wants the Hawks/Wings as their Sunday afternoon games:

Cool beans by me! :thumbsup: I think the Pens will definitely be ready for battle again against a damned good team with a hot goaltender. We just faced a damned good team with a hot goaltender, albeit a rook, and . . . well . . .you know the rest. :tt03:

As I've said numerous times - I believe in this team and they'll do whatever it takes to get 'er done.

LETS GO PENS! :drink:
