Explaining My Stance and Preference in the NHL's Western Conference Final

The NHL's Western Conference Final got underway, and this year, it's the Dallas Stars against the Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers' road to this point saw them defeat the Los Angeles Kings in Round 1, and the Vancouver Canucks in Round 2. As for the Stars, they defeated the Vegas Golden Knights in Round 1, and the Colorado Avalanche in Round 2. As an Avs fan, I was disappointed over the ousting, but when this Conference Final was made official, it wasn't hard for me to decide who I would pull for to

Being the Last Canadian Team Standing

When the second round matchups were set in stone, one of them was a pivotal one for an entire nation. No, not this one. The one sitting above us. The series in the Pacific Division pitted the Vancouver Canucks and the Edmonton Oilers, meaning that it's a guarantee that a Canadian team will be part of the NHL's Final Four this year. The series has reached seven games, and the role of "Last Canadian Team Standing" will be decided in that game. So, why is this vital? It's simple. The last time

Game Seven: Excitement, Nerves, and Agony

Let's talk about the two most dangerous words in the English language to any fan of the Stanley Cup Playoffs:  Game Seven. Really, Game Seven is nerve-wracking in all three sports that uses a playoff series format--NBA, MLB, and NHL. In the NBA and NHL, all playoff rounds are best-of-seven. Since 2022, MLB has a best-of-three Wild Card Series and a best-of-five Division Series, and it's the League Championship Series and the World Series that are best-of-seven. Of course, Game Seven only co

What, Us Worry?! Avalanche Dismantle Jets in Five Games

I can't believe that my fellow Avalanche fans entered this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs scared and worried. Yes, I was a bit demoralized when the Winnipeg Jets, a team we would play in the playoffs, thrashed us 7-0 on our own ice, but I wasn't negative about it. I stood by what I said to a fellow Avs fan on Twitter:  "I don't give a f**k who we play, we'll f**k 'em up."  The Jets swept the season series against the Avs:  "I don't give a f**k who we play, we'll f**k 'em up." Our goalie,

A Look at the Eastern Conference's Crazy Playoff Picture

God, I love the National Hockey League, and sh*t like this is why: Now, this picture doesn't tell the whole story, it only focuses on the second Wild Card spot in the East. In actuality, there are five teams competing for the remaining two playoff spots in the East. Here's the format for those new to the sport. Since the 2013-14 season, the league places the top three teams in each of the four divisions into the playoffs, so that takes up six of the eight playoff spots per conference.

Explaining My Love/Hate Relationship with the Edmonton Oilers and Their Fans

I want to explain something about myself as a hockey fan. I don't hate the Edmonton Oilers. I'm a fan of Connor McDavid. However, I absolutely despise Oilers fans. This has nothing to do with the fact that the Oilers trounced my Avalanche. This actually dates back a few years. So I'm quite vocal with how the Oilers are basically ruining McDavid's career. McDavid's one of the best players in the league, but he has never even been in the Cup Final because the Oilers f**k up when it counts. It

2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs Begin on April 20

During ABC's coverage of the Panthers/Rangers game, it was announced that this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs will begin on April 20. I do love the Stanley Cup Playoffs; the NHL definitely has the best postseason out of all of the four main leagues. The Stanley Cup Playoffs serve as the best eight week stretch in sports; it's a period full of chaos, nail biting moments, and epic occurrences! Here's a brief history of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. In 1942, the NHL (which began play 25 years pr

One Reason Why Connor Bedard May Be Better Off Riding it Out in Chicago

In my post about the Blackhawks' playoff elimination, I asked, "How long until Connor Bedard demands a trade to a contender?" I asked that semi-jokingly, though with Bedard's mindset, he may want out after about four years. Jumping ship to a perceived contender may sound like a good idea, but as the saying goes, "The grass isn't always greener on the other side." Let me tell you a little story. Once upon a time, there was an NHL player named Matt Duchene. Duchene was drafted by the Col

When Being the 1st To Clinch a Spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs Means Nothing

So I saw this pic on Instagram today, and thought, "I may as well talk about this." So here it is:     NHL Europe's IG account posted this pic listing the first team(s) to clinch spots in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The list begins with the 2008-09 season and lists 14 occurrences (omitting the 2019-20 season because it was hampered by the pandemic), while asking who will have the honor of being the first to clinch a spot in this year's playoffs. As I looked at this list, it br
