    Second game tonight! Hey Vautrin, LA won the first game!

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

    I think a miracle will have to occur in New Jersey for them to win four straight.

    I have to admit, can happen though.

    After two periods being scoreless if I remember correctly, was quite surprised to see that it's not over yet.

    Re: The Road to the Stanley Cup

    The LA Kings won their first Stanley Cup and I cried watching the whole process. I remember getting emotional over games before but I don't remember actually crying through the whole process at the end of the game and the hoisting of the Cup!

    Re: The Road to the Stanley Cup

    My heart was in my throat and then finally able to also breathe once the Boston Bruins scored and tied the series with Chicago. Of course, it makes it more exciting since I've got two small bets with two people.

    Both games were great and very exciting; both went into overtime.

    I hope I don't lose...or better yet, I hope Boston doesn't lose.

    Re: The Road to the Stanley Cup

    On our beautiful relaxing long weekend the only sad thing that happened, our one remaining Canadian team, the Winnipeg Jets lost to Las Vegas. Only Tampa Bay and Washington remaining to see who wins the 7th game, then on to the Stanley Cup.

    Thanks, Vautrin, they did well! On to the hopes for next year!

    The games were exciting, Washington did win and Vegas, for their first year, did GREAT!

    Hopefully more Canadian teams will be in the playoffs and maybe it's Toronto's turn? It's about time a Canadian team won again, IMHO.

    Well, if you stop hollering, the Canadian players won't be deaf. Deafness is a big disadvantage in hockey, as you must have noticed in the past few years.

    Actually instead of hollering I now just talk to the players on TV.

    Uh, coaching 5 or 6 teams simultaneously is illegal. And how do you keep your paychecks hidden from your husband?
