Who is watching the conference finals?
Stars fan here impressed with what they have done so far.
Panthers look impressive.

Predictions?

Pens fan here. 🐧 TOTALLY pissed that Mike Sullivan still has a job in Pittsburgh. 🤬🤬

Been watching as I can. My streaming service doesn't have TNT network.

Panthers looked strong. Hope they sweep the Rangers. No real dog in the fight. But a Panthers/Stars final would be a good one.

The boy and I are watching.
I was pulling for the Jets but am now cheering on Edmonton.
The boy plays hockey currently and I’m a former college hockey player myself.

If I pick a preference, I would hope my Stars play the Rangers just for the greater media attention it would garner than playing Florida. Plus it feels to me like Florida is about due to win a cup.

We all know why but if you look at ESPN ticket prices for these games you can go to one in Edmonton for around $130 compared to $375 to see Panthers play Rangers in NY.

Stars vs Oilers seem an afterthought to the national scene. If the Oilers beat the Stars I will root for them.
Snoepro Canada had good odds this year with three teams in the playoffs. Almost a shame two had to play each other.

Stars can't play with a lead!

Been watching it while I can. Glad panthers advanced. Bob is a wildcard, he can be hot and the next game suck...typical playoff scenario for him.

Was hoping the bruins would make it but.....

I have a hard time watching the western conference, I get up early and the games are late due to the time difference

After Game three Edmonton just seemed in control. Was similar watching the Stars in the Conference finals last year against Vegas who looked unbeatable.

One thing I love about hockey is that the road to the cup is so arduous. The best teams make it, seldom if ever is there a fluke. I may reverse course and root for the Panthers since they managed to get to play for the cup two years in a row now.

Edmonton's defense is crazy good and their entry into the offensive zone is a thing of beauty. At one point Oilers had scored 10 straight goals and Dallas has one of the best offenses in the league. Hats off to Oilers.

McDavid and his line are the fastest in the league. When they get up to full speed, they are almost unstoppable. The boy calls him Conner McJesus. We’re believers.

Last night, Florida, however, did to Edmonton exactly what Edmonton did to Dallas in the last game. I think Edmonton finding the Panthers are a little tough for customers physically than the Stars. I didn’t know who I would be rooting for until just before the game, but go Panthers.

Loved the comeback last night. The more I see of Edmonton the less I like them and the more I root for Florida. Seems like a LOT of cheap shots coming from them. I expect it will get worse as they become increasingly frustrated.

Third forum from the bottom no wonder I have never seen it, I guess I will have to broaden my horizons.

Like the Mavericks did against the Celtics last night. I predicted a Mavs blowout in that game but didn't expect they would push being up by 50 at any point.

I doubt they (Mav's) win another. I want the Panthers to hoist the trophy in front of Edmonton at this point.

well......I think last night was about a little frustration payback. Hope it doesn't screw with the Panthers heads and they are delivered the cup in game 5.

Missed the game since I was the local race track for some good Ole Saturday night shootouts.

Wow. 8-1 loss to the oilers. Atleast they can hoist the cup in their own barn with their fans. I'm not saying the loss was planned but......

Nobody gives out more cheap shots and dives as much as Brady Tkachuk of Florida. That’s his game. That’s how he’s played all season. But Edmonton is too smart and skilled for that.
Edmonton has won games 4, 5 and 6. What happened to the sweep by Florida?
Oilers have handed it to Florida the last 3 games and you can tell they are also going to win game 7.
Edmontons defensemen are coached by Mr Paul Coffee. If any of you remember the Oilers dynasty team from the 80’s, Paul Coffee was their top defence man. He won the Stanley cup more than once and 3 Norris trophies as the leagues top defence man. Edmonton also had Gretzky and Messier on those teams amongst others.
I do like Florida’s coach Paul Maurice. He used to coach the Winnipeg jets and I think he did a good job in Winnipeg. Paul deserves a Stanley cup but he’s got a difficult task on his hands with Edmonton and the way they’re playing. I believe Maurice is currently being out coached at this stage of this series.
