Canes optimistic on Brind'Amour


The Canes now are optimistic that Rod Brind'Amour, injured in Game 7 against the Boston Bruins, will play Monday in the Eastern Conference final opener against Pittsburgh.

Brind'Amour suffered a laceration over the right eye after being hit by the puck early in overtime of the Canes' 3-2 victory in Game 7. He left the bench and did not return.

I just watched Eddie-O on NFL live - he is picking the Canes, giving them the edge because of Cam Ward.

Uh, no man - he's not playing. ha!


Should be an evenly matched series - both teams were questionable about making the playoffs, both teams went through a coaching change and both teams were the hottest teams coming into the playoffs.

Of course, we have Sid and Malkin - and they don't!



Staal vs. Staal quotes

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=278817

"With me playing there's always a good chance for hat tricks," laughed the younger Staal. "I don't know about Eric."

The rivalry also extended off the ice where the elder Eric conceded victory to the younger Jordan in one key area.

"His playoff beard is better than mine, mine is pretty bad," Eric admitted. "But he was a grown man at age 12 and I didn't hit puberty until age 20."

Despite skating against each other for the past three seasons, this will be the first playoff encounter between the two brothers, but Jordan likely got a good preview of what to expect by facing sibling Marc in the second round last season when the Penguins eliminated Marc's New York Rangers in five games. Marc wouldn't reveal on which side his loyalties lie for the upcoming series

"I don't know who he's going to be cheering for," Jordan admitted. "He texted me last night and said that it was going to be a tough series to watch. It's going to be interesting to see which side the family rolls on."

With brother Marc manning the blueline in Manhattan and youngest brother Jared taken second-round pick of the Phoenix Coyotes last summer, this could likely be the first of many times that parents Henry and Linda Staal will be forced to watch their boys go head-to-head.

"To be honest I feel bad, but it's so hard on our parents when they are at the games," Eric said. "They don't know who to cheer for."

"I think their plan is to stay home and watch it on TV."

Here's a little deja vu for you

Last year the Flyers were the 6 seed, they beat the 3 seed (Caps) and the 1 seed (Habs) to make it to the conference finals against the Pens.

This year, the 'Canes are the 6 seed, they beat the 3 seed (Devils) and the 1 seed (Bruins) to make it to the conference finals against the Pens.

Werd.

More fun...

OFFICIAL STAAL BROTHER DRINKING GAME RULES

Drinking begins at puck drop.

Single drink:- it is mentioned that the Staals are brothers
- if it is mentioned that there are other Staals, not present, who are also in the NHL
- if a phrase such as "sibling rivalry" is used
- if it is pointed out that BOTH STAALS ARE ON THE ICE
- if anyone mentions the sod farm
- if any random facts are introduced about the present Staals or the Staal family
- if the Staal parents are mentioned
- if any Staal reference occurs that would simply not occur in a one-Staal game

Chug:
- if a comparative Staal brother graphic is shown on the screen
- if they are verbally compared AT LENGTH by the announcers (use your own discretion in deciding "length")
- if a video clip of the brothers/family is shown
- if an interview with a Staal brother happens at intermission (add an additional drink if the Staal brother is asked anything about playing against his brother)
- if the Staal parents are in attendance (this cancels out taking a single drink if the parents are mentioned, but not if they are mentioned separately from the fact that they are in attendance)

By the end of the first period? They should be hammered halfway through the first period.
