I think my boys got a real chance to make some noise this year!
Well, maybe I am being a little hasty/homerish, ...
Damn, I've only watched 3 NHL games all season!!! Usually I rack up about a hundred or so games in the regular season plus then most of the playoff games after the first round.
I've just been so busy with other things that I've completely dropped the ball on hockey. But, maybe I'll pick things up as the playoffs start. The Finnish league's playoffs start today (Friday), so I'm getting a head-start with those. My team finished second in the regular season just like the year before, and I'm hoping that after losing twice in a row in the finals; it would finally be their year this time around.
Yeah, life gets in the way sometimes, ... I haven't been following it as close as I usually do either, even the junior ranks, which I usually enjoy as much/more than the pros.
You're Tappara, right? I see you guys beat Helsinki in the opener and you got Metsola in net (another good group of Finnish goaltenders coming around, ie Saros, Husso, et ) ... good luck, third times the charm! .
