Because there is a topic for all the boring American sports you guys pretend to watch, let’s have one for the actual only decent US sport: Ice Hockey!
Who’s winning Stanley’s Cup this year? Obviously the Bruins. But I don’t think we should write off the Penguins three-peating it.
Gotta check out which U.Maine games I’m gonna watch this year. Gotta get in the regular season ones, it’ll be another year without an NCAA tournament.
I loved watching Hockey when it used to be on Channel 5. Spent many nights watching it during my year at Uni.
Got really into the Maple Leafs and the NJ Devils (they beat the Dallas Stars in the Stanley Cup) - just seen that Jaromir Jagr is still going! Astonishing.
Jagr is so old he was playing when the NHL video games were still 2D.
Yeah, he was late 20s when I was watching back in 99/00.
The BBC have published an article about racism in hockey. No mention of Don Cherry though.
Went to a Florida Panthers game last year with my father-in-law who’s local to them now, had a great evening. My heart is with the Redwings though, (he’s from Detroit originally), and I always picked them in hockey games as a kid because I thought the logo was cool (still do). Shame they’re in such a slump. Saw them beat the Sabres a couple of years back when we were in Buffalo though - hockey is great fun in person.
Best overtime of any sport too.
Completely agree with you here. I love watching hockey live and have supported my local English team for over 20 years.
For some reason I’ve still not picked an NHL team yet. I’ve seen the Lightning in Tampa, but I really like the Sens and Hurricanes for some reason. Will be watching more NHL now the NFL season has finished
