Islanders have totally croaked the Bs. Didn't hurt that all four games were played on Islander ice, but still, they've had Boston's number.
Otoh, we've done much better against the Rangers :D

True, but I think Boston is the better team in general, the Caps too. The Islanders are playing well, but right now they're on a streak partly because they've played several games against Buffalo and NJ.
I do think they'll make the playoffs. But the last time they won the cup I was a young sailor, and soon I'll be eligible for social security!

The Bruins rollercoaster ride continues. Up, down, sideways, rolled-over, it's exhausting ;)
Nice of Buffalo to keep their streak alive and give the Bs as close to a day off as it gets...

I went to the game tonight. Parking was easy, our normal "party before the game" place was easy to get into with open tables. The stadium was eerily empty. There was ZERO crowd participation. This stadium is usually raucous with noise. I didn't mind though. The fake applause track they are using on TV makes it seem more normal, but take my word, it's odd in the stadium. You could hear every sound from the ice. I imagine the players find it a bit odd.

No lines for beer or bathrooms though. Win.

Glad you enjoyed a live game. Islanders had 1000 season ticket holders last night. On TV it sounded like they made lots of noise, but I'm sure in person the missing 9000 were obvious.

Bruins owning the Capitols? It's Bizarro Season!
Hopefully the Bs can use that to climb back up the ladder into playoff contention...

While the Isles struggle against the Flyers.
It is a strange year, but the race is super tight. The top seven teams are within half a game of each other. The playoffs should be great!

Well now! The Bruins did some wheeling and dealing trade-wise and suddenly they have taken two games from the dreaded Islanders - including tonight's game using their third string goalie - who earned his first NHL shut-out.
Things just got interesting! :ban:

...aaaand a game from the Caps - and tonight the Bs beat Buffalo for the 11th straight time (that is starting to be a sad thing).
Still, 4 points behind Washington. So tough to keep up with them...

Cheers!

What a strange season this has been.
But the Bruins are in the post-season play, so it's gotta be good :drunk:

We'll see what happens...
