It's not just hockey. It's the Stanley Cup. It's the NHL equivalent of Olympic hockey.

Blues - nice try at a comparison but the Brits do not really watch the Winter Olympics... in fact when the 2010 Olympics were on I was saying at work that I was going to watch the Olympics and people looked at me really confused and said, "aren't the Olympics in London in 2012?" It was as if the Winter Olympics didn't even exist...

So let's try this one... The NHL final is like the final games in the World Cup of Football, or the last game in the European Cup of football (Barcelona vs. Manchester United last weekend). It's HUGE to any hockey fan!!!

GO CANUCKS!!! (I was born in Vancouver so I'm allowed to cheer from them even though my regular team is the Calgary Flames... ;) )

*******Excuse me, but not all Brits are as insular & ignorant as Londoners! :lol: I watch quite a bit of the Winter Olympics especially the Luge & Bob.******

So let's try this one... The NHL final is like the final games in the World Cup of Football

********Would that be like the "World Series" Baseball Tournament held exclusively in USA? :? *********


I played ice hockey at school in Edinburgh, at least 4 games a year were on frozen snow!! :lol:

You can use the simple knit and purl stitches to make many wonderful things. But don't stop there! If you keep challenging yourself to try new patterns and learn new techniques, knitting will continue to be an exciting adventure.

This article offers a plethora of information that will help you create more complicated knit patterns. From making increases and decreases to mastering cables, the techniques outlined here will take you to the next level of knitting.

It is quiet in our town tonight. Our team lost the game 8-1. If the men who played hockey tonight....well, was it really hockey or was it a series of brawls and a plethora of penalties....if they exercised the muscles between their ears instead of their bodies the game would have been so much better.

Well, we had to let them win one...we want the next two so we can win at home. :mrgreen:

Jeez.... 9 goals in a playoff game, 8 of which were from one team? That is nearly unheard of!!! Seems the Bruins were trying to make a statement. But then I didn't see the game (we don't get it here :( ) so maybe it was something else.

You're right, they can win at home if they win the next two! Let's hope for that!!!

The game consisted of a lot of bullying. It was like hockey of yesteryear......it was not all like playoff hockey.

sunshine...it was a 4-0 loss for the Canucks again. The Boston Bruisers play dirty and the refs are obviously biased. We play in Vancouver Friday night. 5pm pacific time.

Can you stream CBC on your computer?

I remember the year the Calgary Flames made it all the way to game 7...and then lost... I sincerely hope the Canucks have a very different outcome!!!
