Ugh. Sucks that the season has been suspended. 4 week hiatus probably?


Depends on the status of the virus I would assume.

If the NBA and NHL seasons are done, TV is going to blow until the NFL season starts, if that even happens at this point.

If this thing dies down by end of April, NHL could pick up early May.  I think they would just go with the standings as they are, with maybe 1-2 more games for some teams to decide seeding, then start the playoffs.

It doesn't help Ovi catch Gretzky...

 

 

Prolonging Ovi's career with a break.

its unfortunate for sure. He probably would have had over 55 goals this season

I’m supposed to go to the Caps game on Monday with my 65 year old father.  

Sorry you're gonna miss that memory with your dad. With everything cancelled now, there's nothing to watch together either. 🙁

Ovi is stuck at 48 goals. So he might not get his 9th 50 goal season, which would tie him for first with Wayne Gretzky and Mike Bossy. 

Sucks.

Guys, the NHL plays hockey through the first half of June.  To say that the season is cancelled is completely premature.

Unfortunately if theirs a tie for the Rocket the player with the least amount of ENGs wins it’s so it would go to Pasta

 

That would be crap because Boston and Pasternak have played 70 games, while the Caps have played 69, with Ovechkin actually missing a game.   So he's played 2 less games than Pasta. Maybe they make an exception this year.

I doubt they would want to stretch it out much longer than that.   If it picks back up, early May would be an optimistic return date.  In that case, they probably abbreviate the rest of the regular season, perhaps playing only enough games to decide seeding and then go straight to the playoffs.  I cant imagine the NHL is going to want to extend the season into July just so they can play 82 games.

 

I can even see a situation where they entirely eliminate the quarterfinals and just go with 4 teams per conference.

So I just listened to an interview with Gary Bettmann and in it he mentioned the jazz played at Madison square garden the night before we played the rangers there. So realistically our players could have been exposed to the virus due to sharing the same locker rooms.

I'm still getting chills watching this game. That pass by Backstrom to Ovechkin for the power play goal. Absolutely beautiful.

Holtby was unbelievable in period 3. 

I remember when Backstrom missed the empty net. I thought he was going to end it.

It was like winning the Cup again! And yes, I was nervous watching too. Got excited when they scored. I did forget about the clock issue though. It's pretty awesome watching them celebrate.

Tears again. Not as many as the original, but just love those guys. I have to say that as much **** as I gave Orpik, he made such a huge play and is really to be admired.

I forgot about Kuzy needing another stick and ended up perfectly breaking up a shot with 20 seconds left.

^^^^  "he hit the referee" ?? ^^^

Wilson's fist clearly went into the side of Pasternack's face and was not anywhere close to the ref

That Bruins play by play announcer is either blind, biased or my money would be on both,
