Hockey as it Should Be

I'm somewhat of a hockey agnostic these days. I tune in for playoffs only, and even then, not wholeheartedly. But, I've been enjoying the Pittsburgh v. Philly series. Both teams hate each other's guts and play an exciting style. Sunday's game featured great plays on offense and defense, bone crunching hits and fights. It's more than enough to keep me tuning in. In contrast, I watched my home team Canucks go up 3-0 on their series and had to fight off falling asleep on the couch.


  1. It should be an exciting year for you. The Canucks could go all the way.

  2. Yes, it could be. It's a hockey mad town that has never won a Cup and has had mostly disappointments.

  3. Actually, I watched the Blues and Canucks last night. I thought it was very hard hitting hockey.
    The first period on Saturday night, between Montreal and Boston was great. Two and half months is way too long for the playoffs. Hockey in June is just plain stupid. But I have to admit, there are some good series going on out there.
