Game On! Sports TV Lineup 5/2/13

'Race to Four', plus some [All Sports Live Thread]

5/2/13 in NHL   |   Jess   |   34876 respect

Greetings, sports fans! When Mike Babcock was coaching the Ducks in the 2003 Stanley Cup Playoffs, he said "It's not best of seven, it's a race to four." He may have said it since or before then, but I remember specifically that year. Now he's coaching the Ducks' 1st round rivals in this year's 'race to four' as playoff madness continues tonight. We have two NBA teams facing elimination and the beginning of a couple of NHL series' on the slate. We also have some other fun stuff to keep us busy while we wait for those games to start. Let's take a look at today's lineup (all times eastern.)

Wow, Anaheim is giving Detroit a taste of their "we won't go away" medicine...I like it!laugh

It sure would be nice to see the Kings score more than 2 goals in 2 games. 

MISSING----------Large Slovenian. Goes by the name ......Anze (pronounced.....On jay) Kopitar. If you see him, tell him he's wanted at STaples on SAturday.

Second game in a row where Jonathon Quick showed he is in fact human.  Blues get 2 goals in the 3rd and somehow find a way to take a 2-0 series lead.

So frustrating.

5/2/13   |   Debi_L   |   11862 respect

Ottawa beat the Habs in Montreal.  Uh oh.

We muse,

Kopitaire, Kopitaire. Wherefore art thou Kopitaire?
Deny thy nature, shoot thy puck!
Or, if thou wilt not, pass to Cartaire.
And he’ll bury that sh!t.

We pray,

Our Kings, who art in St. Louis,
Hallowed be thy game.
Thy kingdom come, thy wills be done,
On their ice, as it shall be on ours.
Give us this day our daily goals, and forgive no Blues their transgressions,
As we pound into submission those who trespass against us.
And lead us past the first round,
Past these evil Blues f**ks.

Goal, Rangers!

Too many men on the ice 30 seconds in against the best power play in the league. swell.

I submit this photo to show that the Caps are having issues getting people in (this has been a problem all year), in case the stands right now don't look completely full.

I really wish the Caps game had been last night. Community and the season finale of Parks comes first (because I still don't have a DVR). Hey, not paying attention has worked so far this season!

Very complete list...

No sports for me except perhaps the end of the 2 late games.  Heading out..  Playoff hockey is great but can't sit at home for it every night....
