Hockey

Unread post by O Really »

17 seconds, two goals! http://msn.foxsports.com/nhl

More excitement in the last 2 minutes of NBA game 7 and last two minutes of last night's Stanley Cup final than in four seasons of Premier League. And they wonder why soccer hasn't caught on as "America's game."

Bummer, good game.

Nice that both the NHL and NBA got to 2-2.

Tightest Stanley Cup in over 50 years, all games decided by one goal. Hawks can clinch at home for the first time since 1938 on Monday......that town will go nuts!

I could live with that, kind of two minded on the NBA, the bay area has plenty of titles, Cleveland has won nothing since Jim Brown.....Steve Kerr ex-Bull.

Kinda sick of King James, he's no MJ.

Yeah, I don't really care that much. I just like the Kerr-Curry story more than LeBron's.

Go 'Hawks!

Appropriate that a defenseman won the Conn Smythe Trophy, I thought it might be the goalie.

It's a playoff MVP award, not just the finals, Keith won it unanimously. Crawford was brilliant but he was benched for a game and 2/3 in the first round when he was struggling......otherwise ......

In 2013 it was given to Patrick Kane who sort of winked nodded at Crawford, he should've won it then.

I haven't followed the games, but it's good to see a win for my home town.

(Toews, Kane and Keith are all from Winnipeg)

Maybe if you are nice, Toews it Keith will let you drink beers from the cup when it's their turn over the summer. Kaner, not so much. He's from Buffalo New York and technically a 'Mereican. :thumbup:

There was some controversy when the Blackhawks’ parents revealed that they’re actually Whitehawks pretending to be black.
