I haven't seen a Stanley Cup Playoffs thread. Always enjoy a little sports discussion here so I figured I'd see if anyone has been enjoying the playoffs so far. Already been some huge upsets and it's shaping up to be an interesting playoff season.

It's been crazy watching the lower ranked teams play for the win. The favorites are being cleared out.
Hopefully the Golden Knights can finish off the Baby Sharks tomorrow.

LGK, huh. Well, one of us will be happy tomorrow.
Stupid NHL: All old teams' short names were standardized and easily recognizable by city. NYC, BOS, CHI, PIT, SJ, etc. Along comes LGK. Should be LV!!

Oh John, my oh so misguided friend. Its VGK for Vegas Golden Knights. I've lived here my entire life and always refer to Las Vegas as just "Vegas".
So, VGK makes perfect sense.

VGK makes "sense" for the locals. Was an error on my part to have written "LGK"
What doesn't make sense is the overall scheme of abbreviations for the teams.

Not a huge hockey fan, but I'll watch in anticipation of fights.
Wisconsin doesn't have a pro team for some reason.
Haven't seen a post about smoking, so moving this to general discussion.

My team (PIT) got knocked out fist round which was pretty disappointing, so i've been watching the home team as of late and its pretty good hockey. Go Leafs go !!

The Caps have been pretty uneven to this point. Did last night right the ship? I was glad to see DSP back in the line-up, he was a favorite in past years. Tough to lose Oshie in the first round, he's always been clutch. Sound like he is out for the rest of the year.
We're in NOLA this week, but celebrating the win last night! Just when we needed to shut down the Canes, St. Holby responded (it was a full team effort, no doubt). Can we hold up? Who knows...

I grew up in Missouri and am a lifelong Blues fan. The Blues finished off the Winnipeg Jets last night in 6 games. Tough, close series.

Wow. Two teams at 3-3, decision time on Tuesday. Not mentioning names in case some have them recorded to watch later.
But a certain man who combs through ash has to show up to eat crow. Or at least be civil to my team..... :)

Eat crow? For a double overtime game? Nah. It was interesting and I'm actually happy for Martin Jones. I feared for his mental health.

I for one has a sad. My beloved Bolts couldn't even clear out Columbus. I think the real players got abducted by aliens. :(
