When it comes to the best in postseason sports, The NHL has them all pinned!
Real sport alert
There's little that annoys more than playoff hockey guy.
It's on par with the Die Hard is a Christmas movie guy
The NHL is light years better than the NBA. PLAYOFF hockey is the best.
Die Hard is NOT a Christmas movie
The NBA playoffs are actually the worst of the big 4 sports in North America when it comes to intrigue. They are boring and mostly predictable, but give you the most worthy champion, they just aren't usually all that interesting.
The NFL has the one and done factor, meaning you get exciting one off games but rarely does the 'best team' from the full on season win.
MLB has tension with every pitch, plus can get wild swings from one game to the next depending on the starting pitching. If your favorite team is involved, there isn't a more stressful postseason to watch.
NHL seems to have a little bit of it all rolled into one. The tension is there because games typically stay close and one or two goals can be all the difference. Plus you get some crazy upsets and the overtimes are awesome. I'm not even a hockey guy but the playoffs are pretty cool.
Let’s see if the Penguins can score on this power play and take the lead.
NY short handed goal.
Penguins in Rangers in a second overtime. If you’re not watching this game you have got to be ashamed of yourself!
Wow! Pens replacing there goalie.
These guys are gassed.
Triple OT coming up….,,
Great game. Those guys were exhausted
WoW! Just took away Joel Eriksson Ek hat trick with a successful challenge. Would have been the first in Minnesota Wild history. Couple Minutes later Kirill Kaprizov gets the hat trick on an empty net goal.
Nashville just can’t get anything going on this power play.
And again. Took some shots this time, but nothing of consequence
Another great game Pens and Rangers tied up 4-4 going to the 3rd period!
That’s clearly a goal. Boston ties it up. Carolina short handed for 2 mins. Stupid review!
Where would the Kings be without Jonathan Quick tonight? What a game he’s having.
Pens/ Rangers…. Very physical! There is nothing soft when it comes to playoff hockey.
Rangers just tied it up. What a game!
