Credit where credit is due, yes you have been my partner in crime on this one. Sorry, I get carried away because it's been 3 years of bragging about the kid, and now I look like a Hockey genius ;)

Hat tip to Caps for allowing Flyers to avoid potential Ranger matchup in the next round while taking a giant dump on the city of Boston.

Way to go CAPS !!!. What a series that finally ended in our favor, I thought we were screwed on that cheap Chimera penalty but thank God the PK came through huge. I was so mad when that offical made that horrible call, but it don't matter because were moving on thanks to a nice play by Knuble and lil put back by Ward. Holtby was MVP of this series without a doubt , always knew this kid was going to be really good but what he did to the defending champs is really impressive. Yeah Allstar you have been saying that for a while now, so alot rep points coming your way tonight.lol.

I just started talking hockey on OH a year ago, so there's no evidence out there - but I've been on the Holtby band-wagon from the beginning. So gratifying. He won us this series, without a doubt.

My only complaint is that we didn't see enough shots of shocked/depressed Boston fans after the goal.

It's sad that Joe B and Locker won't be doing any more of the live game broadcasts, they're the best in the business IMO. Locker was absolutely giddy in the post game coverage.

Joe B is great! He does play by play for a few college lax games as well.

I think they need to get Knuble in there for Game 2. Need a guy that knows how to battle and grind in the playoffs and get to the goal. He rebounded nicely in March so I was surprised to see him get the healthy scratch.

Well it's a good thing Hunter listened to me! ;)

I do want to say that I have been on the Holtby bandwagon since he was in SC. That said, he does have cold spells (like any other goalie), I mean before the playoffs he did have a 3.00+ GAA this season. But when he's on, he's already probably one of the top 10 in the league.

Also, to make sure that I don't miss out this time:

Philip Grubrauer will be the best of the four goalies to come out.

He had a pretty solid season for South Carolina, and I think you see him in Hershey next year.

My house was louder than that arena was at the end of the game. The silence there was pretty deafening.

Didn't Grubrauer get hurt at the end of the season?

On a related note the Hershey Bears were facing elimination last night and scored the game winner 2:57 into OT, same time as the Caps game winner. Might be a good pick 3 number to play.

    • 1) I get it and most people jump into these discussions without reading the prior pages.   2) How would you know if I valued your opinion? Since you rarely post anything In the forum yet you regularly  use the rep button. I guess if that is your thing it is what it is.  But it really bugs me when I’m bombarded with downvotes from a guy (or two) that doesn’t contribute to the conversation. And one downvote really isn’t a big deal but when it’s a bunch of times it gets annoying. As far as “treating someone like a piece of crap”, my response is usually tied to a previous post. Example, being asked the same question that was answered by me a few pages ago, being told that I need to win a conversation or else, and other provoking replies. 3) I really have no interest in going searching for Ron White and I’m guessing it will just provoke another unpopular response. I was probably out of line calling you a troll. But, I get tired of getting downvotes from you and one other guy. And not even contributing to the conversation. You know kinda playing god by sitting in judgement with the rep button. I’d be willing to bet you’ve handed me nearly as many downvotes as I’ve given out total in my lengthy time here. I guess if that’s your thing it is what it is. But, as a regular poster I’d ask that you please post more and remove your finger from the trigger  Thanks 😉  
    • I agree, I’m okay with the service game. I’m not really sure about what can/would be considered use abuse. It would obviously advantageous to have a handful of these guys all ready at one time.
    • REALLY???? You bumped the Nelson f-ing Cruz thread????
    • I'm getting disillusioned by this board. Beating dead horse after dead horse after dead horse. I need a f-ing break. See y'all maybe when an actual Game Thread is active.   Probably post a song every now and again, because... MUSIC! IMPORTANT stuff.
    • I don't understand what that has to do with what Bonds did between the lines. Who cares that he wasn't liked by the media.
    • Seems like the guys sitting out have all mad tons of money already.  But anyone can sit out this year or any other year if they want to.  Not a big deal to me,
    • Yes, this was actually true. With Buford, Blair, Frank, and Rettenmund in a World Series-tested outfield and Johnson at second since 1966, there was just no room. Moreover, they already had a stable of great starting pitching and thus no reason to trade a star position player for more. I believe Crowley, who had also racked up great stats at Rochester, made the team over Baylor because he was more than two years older, a lefty swinger on a predominantly right-handed hitting team, and could play both the outfield and first base.
