6 hours to go and I'm psyched for Game 1 vs the Panthers, after being really apathetic up until around noon yesterday. This of course means the Isles will lose this game like 12-0. Because? Islanders.

Isles take Game 1, 2-1. They looked like the better team for most of this one, although Bobrovsky came up with a few huge saves. Costly win though, as Johnny Boychuk is probably going to be out with a concussion. He went down hard on the first shift of the game, going awkwardly into the boards. You could read his lips saying "my back" repeatedly. He came right back and played hard. About halfway through the 2nd period he dumped the puck and got destroyed by Matheson. Initially it was called a 5 minute major due to head contact. Then they reviewed it and dropped it to 2 minutes. Beauvillier scored on the PP though, which is rare for the Isles.

I might miss Tuesday & Wednesday's games. :chris18:

Word on all streets is that Boychuk is out with the dreaded "unfit to play" for Games 2 & 3 at least. Figured as much, although nothing is confirmed yet. Most likely Andy Greene gets back into the lineup over Noah Dobson or Thomas Hickey.

Also, I am nowhere near as excited for Sorokin as I was even just 5 minutes ago. Saw an article that his facemask has not 1, but 2 fisherman logos on it. Fuck that! Fucking millennial hipster goalie.

Boychuk did not practice today and is obviously out for tomorrow and probably Game 3 as well. Trotz was asked who he's putting in- "a defenseman". :lol: Gotta love post-season interviews. I'm going to assume he goes with Greene. He's been steady in his own zone and made a great pass to Beauvillier in the exhibition game. Dobson was good, but in a short series vs an offensive team, you go with veteran experience, as poorly cliche as it is.

Game 2 at noon. I expect the Panthers to come out flying. I'm taking a half day to watch it.

Isles had a ping pong tournament in the hotel on Sunday. :lol: I want to see them going youth/minor hockey style and have a knee hockey tournament, complete with the coaches getting shitfaced and heckling players who miss the mini-net.

Big game 2 win. After the Isles first goal Brendan Burke said "If you had Matt Martin scoring, from a between the legs pass by Kuhnackl, and assisted by Andy Greene, well, congrats to you." :lol: Pulock with a PP bomb for the 2nd tying goal, then Eberle had a nice one moments after Burke & Butch Goring said the first line really needs to get going. Eberle added another later on, when Beauvillier's shot went off his leg.

Then my power went out with about 8 minutes left in the third, due to the tropical storm. :chairshot: But, they held on to win so I should be happy.

Matheson was fined $2500 for a high stick to Brock Nelson's face that cut Nelson by the eye. Same dick who threw a shoulder into Boychuk's head, and only got a minor for that. So he's due for an ass whooping.
Scary moment when Barzal was going in on net, fast, made a lateral move and was pushed from behind by Vatrano. Barzal made a jump sideways to avoid Bobrovsky (who made the save) and the post but he caught the post with his hip and went over, landing on the back of his head and hitting the boards. He laid there for a few seconds, holding his head and I thought he was done for the year. Trainer came out talked with him for a minute and he got up on his own. Scary though.

I'll most likely miss Game 3 entirely. :chris18:
