I've never been a big fan of hockey. I thought it was funny, though, when I went to Vancouver a few years ago and turned on ESPN whil waiting for my wife to get ready for dinner. 45 mins of the show devoted to hockey, 15 mins to other sports, compared to here in SoCal 55 minutes other sports and 5 mins hockey.

I do like saying "eh" and "hosehead" though. So maybe I should move to Yellowknife and drive the ice roads for a living, eh.

Lupul's six points, Umberger's hat trick power Flyers'rout of Penguins

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Joffrey Lupul's two quick goals got him on a fast track for the Philadelphia Flyers' first hat trick at home in two years. R.J. Umberger made the fans' wait much shorter for another one.

Lupul notched a hat trick and had six points and Umberger added three goals and five points to snap Philadelphia's five-game winless skid at home and lift the Flyers to an 8-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.

The Flyers improved to 3-0 this season against their Atlantic Division rival...

Feels like hockey to me....we've had some snow, it's been cold and miserable...and I get plenty of hockey on satellite.

I completely forgot about last night's game...my company laptop took a shit and I was busy trying to rescue "important data" from the hard drive and cover my tracks before sending it into out IT dept. Good news though, VS had the game so it's being reaired tonight at 5PM.

BTW - The NHL Network on DirecTV kicks so much ass, it's not funny. Who needs ESPN when you have the NHL network. In about 10 mins of watching it last night after realizing I missed the game, I saw about 5 minutes of hilights (not just goals but key plays), followed by some of John Stevens' media interviews after the game. Oh, and some post-game interviews with Lupul & Umberger. ESPN wants nothing to do with hockey.....GREAT! GFY, dipshits...you can have Berman broadcast his tired-ass "back back back" schtick for 24hrs for all I care.

DirecTV is the best thing for me with hockey. You can watch college hockey and pro hockey. The NHL network is awesome, plus I have the center ice package so I can see all the games. But sadly, this doesnt include my chicago blackhawks. They are showing 11 home games this season though, so it's an improvement. btw the Hawks are 4-0 against the wings this year. It's all about Kane and Toews.

Man Alive I just saw this this morning...

Agent: Panthers' Zednik had lifesaving surgery after severing carotid artery - NHL - Yahoo! Sports (http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/news?slug=ap-panthers-zednikcut&prov=ap&type=lgns)

second time in 15 years this has happened in a game with the Sabres...

Might not be the most tactful to bring this up but yesterday around 5ish pacific time I'm playing NHL 08 as the Pens in the first round of the playoffs against Florida and Zed. keeps blocking my shots from the point... So I hit him in open ice on purpose, getting the Interference pentalty, but knocking him out of the game... I was cheering watching the virtual version of him getting injured around the same time that happened... couldn't believe it when I saw that this morning

But seriously....damn but we're in a slump. We're on the playoff bubble now, unbelievable. Was just a short time ago that we were #2 in the conference. WTF! :)

Personally, I think Gagne is done. He'll be in and out of lineups for the rest of his career. Once you get a bad concussion, things only get worse. Was good to get Lupul back for a couple of games; now he's out with Sid the Whiner disease. That Giroux kid looked pretty decent vs Ottawa though he's gotta learn to leave those minor league moves in the locker room; they just don't work in the NHL. I think Homer is gonna be busy before the trade deadline. This week and next oughta be real interesting.

Those last two games could be huge...
Cripes.....Pens twice and Debbies once. The schedule maker Gods were not very kind to Flyers fans this year. Still, it's pretty cool that the last month is filled with division games where the shit really counts. That's restoring some good rivalry and genuine hate amongst the fans, hehe.

If we get 3 points out of the last 3 games, the worst we can do is tie with Washington (assuming they win their last 3). Washington gets to play scrubs in their shitty division for their final 3. Think Washington would get the spot on the wins tiebreaker. So realistically, we need 4 points in 3 games. Flyers need to take care of business and not worry about what Washington or Buffalo are doing. Win and yer in, end of story. Buffalo has a game in hand but I don't know if they can make up 5 points assuming they get 2 from their in-hand game (which looks like it's being played today vs Boston).

Really sets up what could be a whopper of a final game against Pitt next Sunday at home. And it's gotta be an afternoon game. Just great.

BTW - Don't get too cocky there Sonny Jim, the huns are moving up on ya with a game in hand. One slip and 1st place in the Patrick division (:D) is gonna be a down to the last game race.

Philly fans live in a world of their own. All of the stars do their share of whining to the officials. Briere is one of the biggest whiners out there. Shanahan is downright pathetic. Yet, everyone can only talk about Crosby because he is one of the most visible players in the league.

You are right. The NHL is becoming a world of flops and b1tching. Used to be good ol' rough and tumble hockey, but since they changed the rules to "put the emphasis on scoring", all they've done is created a limp-wristed product full of millionaire cry-babies.

O.M.G!

PENGUINS/flyers Conference Finals... does not get more epic than that for this young man


WOW

Should be a barnburner. The Pens have never beaten the bullies in the playoffs, so I can only pray that continues. :wink: Hopefully it is better than either teams last series.

On a serious note, I have to ask- Is there someone at Versus who is a Canadiens fan? I was watching the game when they were playing in Philly and talking to my brother on the phone. He still lives up there and was watching the Philly broadcast. I noticed that twice when the Canadiens scored, a horn sounded. I asked my brother if the guy in Philly was somehow screwing up and sounding the horn when the Habs scored, but he said "No. Must only be piped in by Versus." So I'm watching the game last night and the Flyers score 3 times in 3 minutes and my brother asks, "When the Flyers scored, did they pipe in a horn?" And I realized that they did not. What is up with that? I thought Versus was supposed to be impartial? I smell a rat.

WOW... that's interesting... Is VS. a candian based channel... if any part of the country up there would do something like that you have to think it would be Montreal right???

anyway here is some reading material for all you hockey fans about the cup finals... (sorry Stars/Wings fans, you just don't matter right now)

Yeah thats a pretty good pick although I think its Detroit vs. Philadelphia for Lord Stanleys Cup. Everyone else is picking Pittsburgh but I'm going with the Flyers in 6. GO WINGS!

Redwings actually match up better against Pittsburgh, Detroit is a puck possession team and gritty and Kronwall would have an open ice hunting spree on Malkin and Crosby, it would be amazing.

My Redwings would actually get crushed if they went up against Pittsburgh, Detroit is a puck possession team but Malkin and Crosby would absolutely own them in that regard, it would be amazing how bad my Wings would get bounded on the forecheck too. I shiver just thinking about it.

I agree totally.

Just took my sucker of a kitchen manager on a bet for the CUP. Loser has to buy the winner a hat of the winning team. This is the same k.m. that had to sing the N.D. fight song in a bar after we whooped up on his vols a couple yrs back.

Lets go RED WINGS!!
That first goal last night that went off of whats his name's face last night was cool to see. Too bad I don't get Vs.

Like I said before. Pitt doesnt stand a chance against my Wings. Nobody can score on us and we score at will. Wings in 5. I still think we could sweep if we wanted to. We have way too much talent for the penguins to handle.

"We could sweep if we wanted to... ???"

I remember when the halos won the title... every series we "didn't stand a chance"... every series we lost the first game.... World Champs.


how about you at least wait for the series to be over to start being a blow hard about it????

Congrats to the Wings and their fans... they were the better team... I actually can't describe the feelings here... I'm a VERY soon to be wed man going on 30 and I'm about to cry b/c the hockey team I am devoted to since the age of ten just came two games short... it reminds me of the Irish three years ago when the bush push happened (I don't know how many of you really noticed but that ONE play kept us out of the title game that year) I thought "I'd rather have the Irish lose ten games then lose like this"... it IS easier to take when your team sucks but it was a good ride... fells like a part of you just dies in the end but... I guess that's why I love sports so much... well that's it for this year...

Congrats to Detriot

Is everybody really die hard about hockey on here too, I can honestly say I have never watched hockey. I even turn it off when they show highlights on espn.

You're missing out... intensely exciting sport

but I can relate... NBA puts me to sleep better than cough syrup ANY time highlights of some dunk that looks just like every other dunk ever made ten times a game are shown... I flip the channels... now all anyone wants to talk about on sports radio and ESPN is Celts/Fakers... I don't even bother tuning in right now

I agree totally ACamp, the Stanley Cup playoffs are the best when it comes to drama in sports. Games are normally close and contested till late in the contest. Congrats to the Pens on a great season and hope we meet up in the Finals again next year(Games 3 - 6 were awesome!).
