    NHL is the no nonsense league. No drama queens, no storylines. Therefore less interest from casual fans

    NHL playoffs are just as good as any sport if you get into it. Great to bet on too.

    King goalie with first win in 6 years, 3 months and 22 days. Hopefully it's not so long until the next one.

    I've never really watched NHL before. I might try and get into it. What teams are the ones to watch?

    Also, when was the last time it was on ESPN?

    Hockey young stars almost always deliver. Pick young team. Flyers or Oilers. Long game join us on Yzerman's wagon

    Kings are my team. They're always a dark horse type of team with Kopitar.

    Blues were fun to watch on their playoff run two seasons ago when I watched.

    I didn't watch TB's run last season; but the season before they were the most dominant and just choked in an early round; so I knew their ring was coming. I was kind of dumb for not putting money on that actually.

    Vegas has been strong since their inception; but they always crumple come playoff time.

    Montreal and Detroit if you want rich history. Or Boston; but f*ck rooting for those wankers tbh.

    Canadian teams haven't won in for like decades if you have a soft spot for the country that actually loves the sport to a man.

    Alright, thanks. I will try and watch some games of those teams to get started. See if I like it.

    Darn, now that you've said it like that, it looks like I've got no choice but to try and get into it due to my username alone .

    I'll try and have a look at some of those teams you mentioned. I guess from my time following/watching the NBA all these years, I don't care about those historic teams as I've come to dislike the Lakers and Celtics over the years (I liked them when I first got into it, but not anymore with the ride I've been on. I've come to hate teams like the Lakers and Celtics now that I know how it all works with big and little market teams). I much prefer the route I went by getting on the Spurs wagon when they had never won a championship prior to it. I know the Spurs were around for a long time and had some good/great teams, but looking back on it as of right now, it feels much better going for a team that had never won a Championship to the Spurs now having the 4th or 5th most championships (not sure if the Warriors overtook them these past few years?).

    By the way, if I really do get into NHL, what is the equivalent of theirs to NBA League Pass for international users? Does anyone have it?

    Off the top of my head, it's NHL Center Ice. It's only $70 for the rest of season. Worth it if you're going to watch that much hockey.

    NHL's decision to mic up referees backfired
    that has been going on for a long time
    NHL exposing themselves

    Context : A hot mic caught Peel saying: "I wanted to get a f—ng penalty against Nashville early..."

    make up calls

    NHL took strong action. Don't know if the NBA would have done so.

    They took strong action only because they got exposed
    Peel is just a fall guy

    Don't think he could be a lone wolf?

    NHL has the most fair officiating of the four major sports leagues IMO.

    I don't think he's the only one

    But yes I agree NHL has better officiating than other leagues tbh

    I've seen some su ious officiating in recent years in NHL; but it's still far and away the best.

    NBA officiating style has creeped into March Madness. Mid Majors increasingly play five vs eight.

    MLB umping has been on my radar ever since I witnessed the demolition of my Angels in 05 in ALCS vs White Sox.

    NFL been on my radar ever since I saw the Saints given a ring in 09 to crown the media's Katrina narratives.

    So, the one thing I've liked about hockey is it has been the only thing close to an even playing field consistently.

    Happens regularly enough. You shouldn't be so excited if you didn't put money on it.

    Ducks 1 Kings 0 in the third. Good local rivalry.

    Haven't caught any hockey all season, tbh.

    Ducks wasted a power play and Kings equalized.
    Kings want that winner with Kopitar, Brown, Dowdy out there together. Championship staples.

    Brown to Kopitar on what should be the game winner.
    Kopitar deking the goalie.
    Will post highlights later, assuming they get posted on YT.
