    1. Islanders beat Flyers (Completed)
    2. Leafs beat Habs (Completed)
    3. Islanders beat Devils (Completed)

    There were a few earlier pieces that got them to the weekend in the first place. Then to complete all 3...with Toronto coming back from a 5-3 deficit. Just amazing. Of course, they couldn't do it the easy way yesterday. I had heart failure when the Devils tied it up with 0.9 seconds. It would have been tough to swallow if they went lost in OT/Shootout.

    Dooo- Beee. Dooo- Beeee.

    Now hopefully DP comes back and we can make a run at this thing. Should be a fun ride. Nothing beats the Stanley Cup playoffs. It is the hardest trophy in sports to win.

    I know this is slightly off-topic but I want to share...I attend a moderate sized college in the South (well, extremely close to the Kentucky state line, but anyway), Austin Peay ('y' is silent) State University. We had a spicy motto... "Show your Peayness." Some ass copyrighted that motto so we had to change it to "Let's Go Peay!"

    Just wanted to share.

    Hopefully your right, Calgary can't beat them. Arnott gives them fits every time they play. I see my home team losing in 4 straight. I hate to lose faith, but we just got pumped by Detroit. All that matters is that Vancouver doesnt win any more games.
    All the traiterous Calgarians that cheer for Van can suck rocks. :angry:

    I TiVo'ed the OT of the Vancouver Dallas game figuring 2 hours and 13 minutes would be enough. Next day, I avoided sports scores and news (not so hard for out of town hockey). I made it into the 4th OT and missed the goal. According to the NY Daily News today, a number of affiliates switched to an infomercial. My TiVo flap was bad, but imagine getting switched to Tony Little.

    Tony Little is starting to sound alright, considering my team is pooched.
