All I have to say about last night is
with reseeding at the final 4, the winner of Montreal/Winnipeg would play the winner of Colorado/Las VegasOttawa approves NHL travel exemption for Stanley Cup playoffs
I’m glad the Islanders best Boston, but beating Tampa is tough. They’re on another level.Happy about the Lightning's win last night. I'm definitely more concerned about the next round. The final four haven't played/seen each other all season. It's going to be very interesting.
Tampa is great on the power play, but can also score 5 on 5. It’s going to be very difficult for the IslandersIsles will need to really step up to beat tampa. You can't get outplayed like they were against Boston 2 or 3 games and expect vasi to give up goals like rask. Now, they can (though no Lee is way bigger than people mention), but how they played against Boston won't get it done against tampa.
Never underestimate the power of am elite-coached team though. I'm happy the isles won because if tampa loses, I'm fine with the isles getting that chance (hope they send a cup finals shirt to tavares), but I think the isles were a much harder match-up for tampa. They are still favored, but with what the bruins looked like, tampa may have swept them.Tampa is great on the power play, but can also score 5 on 5. It’s going to be very difficult for the Islanders
Eh you think that changes much? I can't imagine most people would rather watch through an nbc app than on cable if they had the option. I know when I've watched on the app before, it's like 2 minutes behind live time. If I had both peacock and USA network, no chance I'd watch through peacock streaming. This just seems like a way to get the people who are illegally streaming it.Peacock has added premium streaming as an option for all of the National Hockey League’s remaining Stanley Cup Semifinal games. As previously announced, the games will also air on NBCSN or US…deadline.com
Hard to see this as anything but spite towards the NHL. Viewership metrics gonna crater.
Officiating has been bad this year as a whole. I hope during the off-season something gets reviewed and better rules put in place.Lightning/Isles game 2 I think can officially be labeled the worst reffed game I've ever seen. I hesitate to call the point penalty the worst call ever (everyone seems to forget tampa had the exact same call against like 2 weeks ago) but it was up there. Then I have no idea how you miss the too many men on the palat goal. And those are just 2 of the most blatant. The entire game was a train wreck, to the point I nearly turned the game off in the 2nd. I was completely disinterested.
It's been bad, but not as bad as these playoffs have been. And like last night was not some new rookie ref still learning, these are vets.Officiating has been bad this year as a whole. I hope during the off-season something gets reviewed and better rules put in place.
However, I enjoyed seeing the Lightning play a better game. Kuch's play has been outstanding.
