Wings swept the Blue Jackets and the Habs are out I hear.

This is the Wings at it's best this season:

Detroit, meh. Not that fond of Detroit due to the pre-salary cap days. I do like Osgood though.

Philly on the other hand. I loath Philly. They're a special kind of asshole when they play. Not to mention the fans. Just, wow. >< Course I don't like a lot of Canucks fans either. But that's because they get in my way on the way to work =p

Kinda sucks the habs are out already though.

Remember, Philly sports fans are the ones who booed Santa Claus.

The Habs are out indeed. And I am not happy. It's their hundredth season, FFS.

Oh, I'm used to being hated for extravagant spending. Chelsea did it, Detroit did it too, and we're still manipulating the cap. :D

Ossie's good. Well loved here, but I'm a bigger fan of Lidstrom. Hard to believe he's 38 now.

An old man in hockey years. Not as old as Chelios, though. Good god!

I'm holding my breath waiting for game 6 of the Devil's playoff round! They are neck and neck with Carolina! If the Devils win Sunday, they move forward!

Let's Go Devils! :D

Glad to see some more hockey fans coming out. My SO got me into it fairly recently...now I'm hooked!

I haven't watched Philly play, yet. But from what I hear, they aren't nicknamed the "Broad Street Bullies" for nothing.

For me, I've only seen a few Rangers games and I can't stand them. Avery is a special kind of jerk in my opinion. Although, I will grant that Lundqvist is an awesome goalie- gotta love watching him. Things get exciting around my state because there's lots of Rangers fans in the vicinity. Interesting rivalry.

As much as you say other teams fans are rude, I have to say NJ fans can be pretty rough. If you come to our stadium. a good chunk of fans will enthusiastically tell your players they "suck" as they enter the ice. Not to mention our goal scoring cheer of "Hey, you suck!" Or our rowsing chorus of "Rangers suck!" (whether they are playing or not). And then there's the, "If you think the Rangers suck then clap your hands" which I heard for the first time in playoff round 2. And I've yet to figure this one out, but I also heard a chorus of "Assssssshooooollle" somewhere during the course of game 2. :confused: Couldn't tell if it was for a bad call on the ref...something happening in a scuffle...not sure.

So- I won't say much about other team's fans. Our team may play a clean game, but us Devils fans are vicious.

(btw- I'm not one of the people that announces that the other team players "suck" as they enter the ice- not even the entire crowd participates- I think that's crossing a line)

Oh, the other thing we DON'T do, but I noticed Carolina fans doing is boo guys that got hurt as they walk off the ice. The couple games I've been to, the NJ fans are rude, but even we don't do that shit. (Game 3? against Carolina, there was a great deal of booing when Salvador took a high stick to the face and briefly left the ice BLEEDING. That was so uncool- a penalty that was called and resulted in an injury shouldn't be booed- and no matter whose team the guy is on, if he comes back out from a bleeding face, he deserves a cheer.)

Anyway. I'm loving watching the playoffs. This is a very exciting sport! I hope hope hope I get to go to a Round 2 game. This race is so close though, anything can happen. I think I'm going to be bald and have no fingers left by the time this round is over. :lol:

And while SO knows just about all there is to know about hockey, I welcome anyone who wants to talk about it to come talk at me! I'm interested in learning more, and if there's any Devils fans out there, I'm so excited to talk about the Devils games. (I've got my whole family watching with me now, and we have never ever watched any sport, ever in this house)

Locally, we got *fucked* when it came to the playoffs. Yep, the Pens lost last night. But, that isn't what I meant by getting fucked. Comcast had some issues...for the entire 2nd period! :wtf: was that?

You sure it was Comcast? We had broadcast issues one night, too. THANKFULLY they resolved within a few moments, but I texted my SO and his feed was out, too. He has IO.

That's sadness though. With how fast the game goes, so much happens within seconds...I couldn't stand missing an entire period! :eek:

DesignFox, I'm not going to quote your entire post, as that's just too much. But a lot of the things you posted aren't unique to the Devils. Chanting "SUCKS" when an opposing player is announced is a common thing at Jets games. Chanting "asshole". Yea, did that in high school even. Or the Hey Song and sing "Hey, you suck!" No originality with Devils fans.

Well, on the upside the Canucks swept the Blues 4-0. So, er, yay. -.-

But they cheered Dave Bush for taking a no hitter into the 8th inning...





or were they cheering that he *didn't* get a complete game no hitter? :confused:

Eh, my experience with sports is limited. But when I went to the Caps game in Washington they didn't do that stuff. I don't remember people at the Phillies game (the only baseball game I've ever attended) doing that to the Diamondback players, either.

:shrug:

I guess its cool that we New Jersey people aren't as mean as I thought we were. :) Thanks!

Probably, though they'll likely let you live as long as you aren't a Leafs fan.

These refs at the Rangers/Capitals game weren't one-sided at all.

I'd like to know where the hell the Devil's were tonight. Jesus. First game I've ever TURNED OFF since I've become so obsessed with the sport. :cry: :cry: :cry:

On to game 7... Let's hope the home ice revitalizes us. :(

I LOVE the first round of the playoffs. I've been too busy watching playoffs to hang out here, though. :lol:

Calgary lost in the first round (Booo!) but I'll be the first to admit that the better team won that series. I can't wait for the second round series'--Pittsburg/Washington and Anaheim/Detroit should both be fantastic, and both will probably go the distance. :D

I didn't get to see any of the games, but I kept up with the NHL.com stuff. I was sad when I saw my team lose. Damn Blackhawks! Ah, well. Such is life, now I guess I'll cheer on the Canucks since my close buddy (from another site) who is the only friend I talk to about hockey, likes them.

I might scope out Washington. They are the first team I ever got to watch play live. It's so funny, 'cause when I saw them, they played terribly. Later, when I was seeing how well they were doing, I said to my SO, "Wow, they must have been having a bad night when we saw them- they're actually GOOD." His response was, "Well, THAT'S how I hoped they would have played since it was your first game and all...oh well."

His attempt to get me into it worked, anyway.

And well, since the 'Canes managed to beat out my Devils, might follow their progress as much as possible, too. I have to admit it was a really close run, and Cam Ward pulled out some amazing stops in the last few games. Wouldn't mind seeing what else they do.

My mom's funny about this. I thought I was bummed out, she was still carrying on about the loss last night. :lol: I figure there's always next season...and now I can start following a lot earlier. :D

Canes and Pens and Wings Blackhawks.

If we play the Pens I wouldn't mind making Crosby cry again. Though it's fun playing an Original Six team and a rival at that.
