Let’s talk about what’s going on in the world.. of the Sabres and the NHL
Here’s an open thread for discussing all matters Buffalo Sabres and NHL related for this week. Of course, you can talk about anything else you like too.
The playoffs continue and already we’ve had some interesting results.
(1) Colorado Avalanche 4-0 (4) St Louis Blues – no real surprises there, though I did think the Blues would give the Avs more of a fight.
(2) Vegas Golden Knights 3-1 (3) Minnesota Wild – again, not unexpected.
(1) Toronto Maple Leafs 1-1 (4) Montreal Canadiens – John Tavares injury could become a critical factor with the Leafs favored to win it all before the playoffs started.
(2) Edmonton Oilers 0-3 (3) Winnipeg Jets – For all their offensive firepower and generational talents, the Oilers are still barely better than the Sabres, lol.
(1) Pittsburgh Penguins 2-2 (4) New York Islanders – The seedings mean jack in our division really, and anyone can beat anyone.
(2) Washington Capitals 0-4 (3) Boston Bruins – Can’t say I’ve ever been happier than when the B’s swept human trash Tom Wilson out of the playoffs. Sorry Ovi though.
(1) Carolina Hurricanes 2-2 (4) Nashville Predators – If you thought the Preds were a spent force then you’ve got another thing coming. Also what was with Rod Brind’amour’s ref rant?!
(2) Florida Panthers 1-3 (3) Tampa Bay Lightning – This might be my favorite series so far, some great playoff hockey on show here.
