NHL 2021 season

Jesus H. Christ, I was going into this postseason thinking the Rangers had GOOD goaltending.

F*ck!!!!!!!!!!!!

When's the last time a team won a playoff series with 0 net power play points?

Asking for the Kings.

Come on, Maple Leafs! I know you can find a way to break my heart (again) in the next 20 minutes.

Unlucky result for the Leafs. Thought they played well tonight.

Double penalty, scoring leader stumbles over his own skates, and an own goal, feels about right.

Well, it took longer than 20 minutes at least...

Well in case anyone missed the news after Wednesday, the Caps managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, squandering a 3-0 lead. It's incredible as when they've been playing good, they've shut down the Panthers pretty solidly, but they have fallen apart after a cheap goal more than once.

Sigh.

Thought the Leafs played well again tonight.

Run it back next year and try to improve on the margins again.

Connor McDavid. Wow.

Heck of a series! Go Rangers!

There truly is nothing better, in sports, than game 7 overtime.

Agreed. No TV timeouts to fit in commercials makes such a big difference in the flow of a period.

I still remember my first experience with a TV timeout at a live game. I was watching the Giants play and suddenly, after a kickoff, everybody just stopped but neither team was charged a timeout.

I was completely befuddled, until I realized from looking at one of the in-stadium screens that it was a TV timeout.

I remember being infuriated, while everyone else mostly was just like "eh."

This probably helps explain how I ended up becoming a soccer fan.

In the CFL they have a dude who runs onto the field twirling a little red flag to indicate the start and end of TV timeouts. I had pretty much the same reaction you did the first time I attended a live game.

Really excited for the Battle of Alberta.

I'm not sure if they still do it but at NHL games there used to be a red light they would turn on at timekeeper for TV timeouts.

At the college hockey arena where most of my in-person spectator attendance has been, someone in the replay booth just flops a towel over the glass until the commercial break is over then pulls it back.
