It is that time of year. When hockey seems to get even more important in our lives. When every win extra blissful, and every loss more stress inducing. It's when players give it their all, and refs blow it for them.
The regular season is all but irrelevant now. It's the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
(And for the Toronto Maple Leafs? "Summer vacation!")
I figured there was a need for a general playoffs thread. I'm not sure about everyone, but I absolutely love this time of year. As a Sharks fan, it can get to be a frustrating time of the year. But as a hockey fan? Best. Thing. Ever.
To me, it's always goalie performances that stand out.
There are many more. Khabibulin. Kipprusoff. Ward. Fleury. Some guy named Hiller. Halak. Niemi. Needless to say that goalie is my favorite position, but the list goes on and on. Which is why it's great to have that last guy in net for our team.
Feel free to put down your playoff predictions. And as always: Go Sharks! But also, go playoffs!
