In 1919 the flu taketh away the Habs chance at winning the Cup.

 

In 2019 the flu giveth back a chance!! 

 

(Fine, technically it was 101 years years ago, but I view that as a crazy omen.)

 

It is unbelievable that the Habs are in the playoffs, and I have a funny feeling that we haven't seen anything yet.  This year just keeps getting stranger so a 12th place team making the playoffs and winning the Cup would be the norm for 2020.

The Last Time the Leafs won a playoff series.

The game was NOT broadcast in HD, no hockey game had been to that point in time.

There was no such thing as the NHL Salary Cap. We would lose a full season to the CBA Negotiations to make that thing happen.

Sidney Crosby was a 16-year old phenom in the QMJHL. He wouldn't even be draft eligible for another full season.

Politcally
Barack Obama was running to be a US Senator for the first time.
Paul Martin was the Prime Minister of Canada

In Entertainment
The number 1 Song was Yeah by Usher.
The number 1 Movie was Kill Bill Vol 2.
The WWE Champion was Chris Benoit.

It was 3 weeks before Friends aired their final episode.

And to think... some Habs fan envy their organization because they were lucky enough to be SH*TTY enough for 15 years to get Matthews and Marner.

I half-expected the more extreme Tankists to prefer that the Leafs win the Cup...just so we can be certain they have no chance at Lafrenierre 😩

I think Paul MacLeod was the only Habwriter in the world who actually picked Habs to win..BUT, he predicted in 5 games.

CBJ leading 2-1 over Tampa with a late second-period goal. You can bet that the pressure is on for the Lightning ...

Columbus is employing the classic Habs strategy of letting the opponent take all the shots to wear them down until they hopefully give up a clunker.

Started watching in the third overtime period.

I am rooting for CBJ

And into 4OT we will go ... Columbus may have been doing the rope-a-dope thing but they are still in the game. 52 shots on Vasilevskiy so far, 72 on Korpisalo.

Holy crap. Seven periods of hockey. 85 saves by Korpisalo, a new record. And still it continues.

I agree with Kelly Hrudy ... I'd love to see Korpisalo get 100

 

Just hope whoever wins it is a GOOD goal and not some weird bounce or a horrible mistake that will haunt somebody.

Boston-Carolina moved to 11 AM EST tomorrow.  If that one or the NYI-WSH game goes to any sort of extended OT, it could affect the start time for our Game 1.

I took an hour PTO for the 3pm start. Should I have also scheduled time off in the morning? This is crazy!

I think they are getting tired ... only three shots total in the first half of 5OT ...

Ah well. An awesome effort by Columbus, and a stellar game by Korpisalo. Tampa was ranked with a 76% chance to win the series, it really doesn't look easy now.
