Not to point out the obvious, but I’m sure the mods would prefer that this conversation take place over at 1st Ohio Battery.  That said, SWEEP THE GOD DAMNED MF’N LEG!!!!  NO MERCY!!  YOU HAVE THE MOUNTAIN DOWN;  DON’T GIVE HIM A MOMENT TO CATCH YOU AND CRUSH YOUR SKULL!!

I think it was the loudest sporting event I have ever been to.  USC Vs OSU about a decade ago was really loud, but this was incredible. My ears are still ringing.  It seemed the entire crowd stayed after it was over and cheered for at least 10 minutes.

Columbus really came out and supported the Jackets. Great atmosphere from start to finish.

Agreed. I loved every second of this game, especially the beginning and end. Everyone was just loving it. 

How firm thy friendship..

CBJ fans are going to be incensed over the league overturning Atkinson’s PP goal (Would they do that for any other team?), but I think the bigger moment may be Bread not cashing in on a wide-open break to the net.  Stamkos scored shortly after that to make it 2-1.  I’ve got a horrible feeling that that might be the turning point in the entire series.

Nice 1st period, iffy overturn of goal.  I do like that they look at it quick then make a call.  None of this drag it out for five minutes stuff we see in football.  It kinda took some wind out of CBJ, or so it appeared.

That puck was clearly beyond the blue line. I saw it for a second and could see that. It was a good call.

If we're talking about the goal called off for offsides then yeah I agree. I hated it at the time but they made the right call.

Well, it is apparent that you would be a perfect fit for the NHL review booth.  See something, make the call, and stick with it.  CBJ won, and JT had the first, doesn't really matter now.

I cant tell if you're being snarky or complimenting me. The replay clearly showed white between the puck and blue line. There was no way they could uphold the goal. In the end it didnt matter but you were right about it taking wind out of the sail temporarily. Bring on Toronto/Boston!!

The juice is worth the squeeze

HS

All good Bucks, legitimately having people make calls and stick with them, in a timely fashion is something the sports world needs, desperately.  Was refreshing to see.  Also correct on the call, white line was evident.  Agreed, bring on Toronto/Boston!

I'm not a big hockey fan but it seems like there is more upsets in hockey then basketball in playoffs.  Both play series and not 1 game and it probably shouldn't happen more.  

Is this correct and why?

HS
CALPOPPY's picture

I think it’s probably the goal keeper. You get a goal keeper standing on his head and he can change an entire series. Think it’s more difficult to scheme against than a hot shooter/scorer in basketball.

But know that I’m not a hockey expert. That’s just what I’ve heard.

Special thanks to Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper for not ever understanding they were in a dogfight after the first period of game 1. Dude just kept dropping soundbites like it was fluky and never seemed to want to give the CBJ any respect. CBJ outworked them, outhustled them, out-toughed them and certainly outcoached them... 

4-0 SWEEP!!!!!

GO CBJ!

Go Bucks!

What a series for the CBJ and the city to come out and support so strongly.  There was a topic that was posted here with the person wanted to fire everyone associated for the CBJ and ranting about the team.  Its weird that that topic was deleted because I can't find it.

John Cooper, Jon Cooper.  Anybody notice this?  Slightly different spellings but the name now has the connotation of a coach who wins a lot of games but is cursed by the reputations, "He can't win the Big One".
