Canucks claimed second Presidents' Trrophy in a row :clap: . Nice to see the team heading to playoff this year. I hope the team could do better than last year at final round.

Wikipedia is not the most reliable source, but you get gist of it. And we watch it because hockey is an amazing sport, has lots of action and is very exciting, especially in the playoffs. You live in California so you have 3 teams to choose from. lol :lol:

In the same manner, I can't believe all of you guys are rooting for the Bruins. They are one nasty team. haha ;-) . They play dirty, very dirty. Well I guess Bruins fans feel the same way about the Canucks.

Why not Bruins? Habs are not in playoffs this year. Besides a bunch of us here live or used to live in Massassachusetts.

Why is that everyone outside of New England trashes our teams when they are winning?

Sens lost tonight. The Cup is not coming home this year, yet again. Don't really know who to root for now...

None of the Canadian teams made it past the first round. Boston is out too, no idea who to cheer for now.

I have a strong feeling that the Kings are going to be hoisting the cup this year. Jonathan Quick is just superb.

After Canucks lost badly due to their poor scoring ability, I just watched the highlight.

Ottawa was never supposed to make it as far as they did as they were in a building year so i'm quite proud of what was accomplished. It does set themselves up though for some stellar years to follow if they can retain the talent (Karlson) and Alfie does not retire (He'll stick around ~~ Winning a cup is the ONLY thing he hasn't accomplished!!).

Kudo's as well to Paul as his coaching..

L.A swept the Blues. :eek: Couldn't believe L.A that good eliminating the top 2 seeds in 4/5 games!

Was the top 2 seeds out of energy for playoff run? Or L.A brust out from their dark age?
