IDK what it says about me but I seem to have accepted that Washington is forever cursed and I can freely support Vegas' cup run without any salt involved.

Last two years have done a number on me. Can you imagine if they end up blowing the season and finishing bottom 10? I would absolutely point to Jagr as the reason. When the announcers said the stat about the flames being I was like "they just jinxed the fuck out of Calgary". The Pens were undefeated after leading through two until sometime in the playoffs in Horrible to hear that stat thrown around once the games start meaning something.

Flames fans should be happy they got it out of the way sooner than later. Fix the goalie rebounds. There is no way in hell that a soft pass like that would ever create a juicy rebound like that in real life. Nah that's gobbled up. The juiciest of rebounds for an easy goal. I'm not mad at your comment because you added three upside down smileys which means it's all in good fun. Unfortunately not, just an extended version of the third goal with a bit of celebration. Seems like everything is going his way in Vegas.

Love to see it. Yea I'm with you. Frolik, to me, made the only play available - a pass to Brodie. But the idiot completely ignores it, surprises Smith who gives up a rebound for a goal. Still, Brodie should've had that. You can pass to a teammate standing in your slot, but only if he's ahead of you, not behind you. You want a missed pass to harmlessly float to the opposite boards, not end up on goal.

The pass is also aimed poorly, it's on his backhand when he expects it on the forehand. Inaccurate pass you're not expecting are tough to adjust to and handle quickly.

Also, found the jinxer. Think this guy beat him to it. And yet Whiney Crysby wouldn't even look me in the eye when I congratulated him on his trophy.

And the hockey gods were angry that the Flames released Jagr. So they cursed them for the next 50 years! What a historic way to enter a major sports league.

VGK games are so fun to watch! They are great team players, who finally have a real chance to shine, and the Las Vegas community is a lot more tight knit and supportive than outsiders think. They're one of the fastest teams I've seen move through the neutral zone. It's so much fun to witness, unless it's against your team. They don't employ any slower, tough players who are only there due to some old school thinking of needing toughness.

Anyone who is tough on their team can actually skate really well and handle the puck well. If that Marchessault line didn't come out of nowhere they were going to be good, but who thought THIS good?

He just stood there with his thumb in his ass and decided not to let it go by. That caught Smith by surprise. Yeah, I wondered why he was spectating on the play.

That said, Frolik should have kept in on the boards no matter which direction he was going to play it. Most assuredly he should have sent it back towards the neutral zone. Damn, that sounds like a home game for Vegas. Is that a well traveling fan base, Canadians super excited for the blazing hot newbies, or Calgary fans expressing their hatred for their own team?

Marchessault with another short side snipe, he got Scott Darling when they played in Raleigh. What a roller coaster of emotions in the last 2 minutes. Depressed we were going to lose, to happy we would get into overtime, to jumping for joy that we are gunna win with a two goal lead! Why am I mirroring to gfycat? Because work blocks streamables. All three goals that Vegas scored within the last 2 minutes were caused by mistakes from the Flames. First two were defenseman brain farts, last one was Smith's fault for leaving the net before the Flames even got quality puck possession in the Vegas zone.

I am glad you did too. Thanks for getting me started. I fully recognize how special this season is - I am so fortunate to be here for it. Thanks man, i know how much you talk about starting to watch hockey over on OT and knowing Vegas has started a team and you living in Vegas, it would have been a perfect timing to start following Hockey.

Cassie Campbell-Pascal she is the former captain of the Canadian Woman's Team and she is very very knowledgeable and has an interesting take on a lot of things. She fills in for Kelly Hrudey when he is unavailable for our games because he is on the intermission panel for all the National Broadcast games. I love Hrudey, but Ive been partial to her commentary this season. She's always adding something instead of just speaking to fill the silence.

You have the guy yelling shit while she calmly feeds you the info in a well done manner. Do you want another Glen Gulutzan tirade video, because that's how we get another Glen Gulutzan tirade video.
