    Well, it's that time of year...wait, wut?!

    Yes, after a 4 1/2 month layoff, the greatest athletes in the world are ready to compete for the most prestigious trophy in sport.

    Some observations from this weeks "practice" games (I watched 4):

    The star players did not appear to miss a beat. Ovi ripped a one-timer bullet 3 hole that looked like it was shot out of Supermans ass. Just a laser beam. Goal tending also looked quite tidy (with the exception of the Panthers).

    On the other hand, passing looked fairly sloppy. Malkin threw a horrible clearing pass right to Hayes and he scored an easy goal. Probably see a lot of that early on.

    Almost every team has a 100% healthy bench, yet Marchand and Carlson were both injured in games this week. Those are big losses for the Bruins and Caps.

    All in all it should be one hell of an interesting Cup year, pretty much anything can happen and I don't see one team that I would call an outright favorite. Games start at noon tomorrow in the best of 5 series.

    Oh, and LGR!

    You dreams may come true if Mika Zibanejad continues to be as hot as he was before the pause. (I tried to make that font smaller but could not)
    It would make me smile if Nashville or Philadelphia get it going.
    For those of you that can't skate ...

    I know where the 5 hole is, but I’m almost afraid to ask this group what the 3 hole is?

    And there's actually a 6 hole. That's when it hits the goalie but goes in.

    I think the Blackhawks are keeping a fresh 8-ball of coke in the locker room for Crawford.

    Man, i'm trying...Watched a couple of the games and it was like watching one of those Euro qualifier tourneys where no-one shows up to watch....Ugh... Still, since my Devils sucked giant donkey balls all season, i'm hoping Tampa shows good!! (Oh, and FTR.. :D)

    Carolina up by one over the Rangers. Mike gets a goal and looks to be in excellent form. Lindquist has stopped a few crucial high quality chances by Carolina.

    Good effort but Carolina was too much for the Rangers. ( ...sorry @rd400racer.)
    Chicago currently handing the Oilers their ass.

    Yeah sloppy penalties by the Rangers helped the Canes. Ludqvist Gave the rangers a chance but it slipped away.

    Can’t get the Hawk Oilers game. Wish I did.

    Thanks man, had a little party over to watch it. Rangers had nothing in the first, were just marginally better in the second and couldn't get it together in the end. Love Hank but believe we'd have been a better team with Igor.

    Hawks game is a shocker! I like seeing those guys play well.
