    2012 NHL Playoffs Thread

    Let the trash talking begin! All 16 playoff teams are now set, though seeding has not yet been finalized. If the Coyotes lose one of their next two games, tomorrow's Kings / Sharks game will be for the Pacific Division. Coyotes play on the road against St. Louis today and Minnesota tomorrow at 5:00pm Pacific. This means the Kings and Sharks will know if the game will be for the division by face off or shortly after. What an exciting end to the regular season.

    Though I'm a Sharks fan, I really hope that Ryane Clowe can resist the urge to play the puck from the bench this time. I was pretty sure he was going to be fined or suspended for that stunt, but it looks like the league is just calling it a blown call. Funny... I was just talking to my friend about the stupid penalties Clowe takes hours before the game yesterday. I like the guy though. Gritty and productive. His stupid poke check overshadowed the fact that he and Joe Thornton both had Gordie Howe hat tricks last night though.

    Anyways... the real season is about to begin and it looks like it's going to be a good one. I already know the preferred team of a few of you, but who is everyone else rooting for this post season? Go Sharks!

    Cool Re: 2012 NHL Playoffs Thread

    I guess you can't get a too many men on the ice penalty if you're still on the bench. I've seen Clowe's dad at some games, seems like a decent guy, but talk about being from a town that isn't close to anything. I'm truly hoping he's been keeping an injury quiet, at least that would explain a bit of a drop-off this year.

    If anyone wants to watch Game 1 Thursday at the ESPN zone the boy and I will be there representing Sec 205 of the Tank. Post a reply or shoot me a PM. Go Sharks!

    A bientot.

    Apparently interfering with a puck no longer means anything and my Kings have gone from the possible 3 seed to the 8 seed because of it.

    Looks like I won't be growing my beard too long.

    So because of this, I'm forced to root against the Sharks, who I'd normally be ok with. Sorry Shark fans.

    Well, unless they play the Red Wings.

    We understand as we're forced to root against the Kings for targeting and intentionally boarding Logan Couture two games in a row. Well, unless they play the Canucks. Oh wait... uh... go Kings? Yeah... still iffy on that one. I'll get back to you.

    Let the green men get out the Vince Vaughn cardboard cutouts...

    Go Canucks Go!



    (hopefully it's a riot-free playoff run, and hopefully they don't fall asleep during game 7 of the finals this year! )

    Had the Kings won that game in regulation, that still would've only moved them up to 7th; Coyotes still win the division. Just typing that makes me taste bile in the back of my throat.

    That would be an awesome Conference Finals and one that most Californians would really like to see.

    I think this is going to be really good series that may go 7 games.

    I am a Sharks fan, but St. Louis' had their number all season... I'm a little nervous for the 1st round.

    I have to stay up late if I am going to listen/watch the first game between the Coyotes and the Hawks.

    You guys still have another shot in Vancouver before heading out to LA, though the Kings did just steal home ice advantage.
