Arizona looking great. Physical play right off the start. Not sure why they started soros. You have to go with the veteran in pekka rinne. 3-0 in the first is hard to come back. 

Rinne struggled all season (id know, i had him in my league) and Saros kind of stole the Starting job. Nashville as a team couldn't keep the puck out of their net all year, seemed every game they were down 2 or 3 goals early. Today was no different. Crazy how much talent is on that team, I thought they would have been much better this season

I dont see montreal stealing another game, let alone two.

flames looked good last night.

Blackhawks were amazing, two spot from my boy Toews, and that rookie is playing spectacular.

I can see them stealing another one, this format is unprecedented. These 5 game series are a killer too, lose the 1st game and you need to win 3 of 4 to take the series.

Imagine the 2 top seeds in this qualifying round Pitts/Edm going out. You lose both McDavid and Crosby in the 1st week. 

As a Montreal fan, I was just hoping for them to keep it competitive. Now that we got game 1, I'm way more hopeful about taking the series. 

What kind of Montreal fan actually wants them to win this series? The fuck?

I've never been one to want to see my team lose. Hockey is one of those sports that any team can go all the way, especially in a year like this. Also, a goalie like Price can carry the team if he stays hot.  Winning this series will also help to breed a winning culture.

And anyone who thinks Tkachuk purposely skated Scheifele's ankle is a retard

They kept showing it over and over again talking about if it was dirty or not. Not one time of seeing it did I think there was anything dirty about it.

Yeah I see when it’s time to pass the torch. It’s hard decision to make considering some of the playoff games Rinne has stolen from teams. If Arizona steals the next game let’s see if they throw him in if their backs are against the wall.

Dumba raised his hands up for both anthems this time.  Last game this the cuck that made it about all himself in the headlines, for sitting for American but standing for Canadian anthem.

This team has no shot of winning the cup. They need Lafreniere, and bad. Get Lafreniere, fire Julien and Bergy, and then let's start building that winning culture.
