Stars got tired of all that winning a few weeks ago, so they apparently decided they wanted to stay home and watch on TV — again.

Awesome -- thanks for the ping!

Pittsburgh-Philadalphia series in the East looks to be one for the ages.

I'm hoping my Devils (#6 in the East) can be a sleeper and make a strong run. They were the hottest team in the NHL down the stretch, and it looks like they might be getting their chemistry set at just the right time.

Sadly my Hurricanes are not involved, even though they had like the third best record in the whole league since the all star break (speaks to how poor they were early in the season).

LOL xD Whenever Nucks’ fan riot, it’s when we lose. The fact is I’m a Kings fan since Gretzky, but because I work here in L.A, I can’t just give up on the team I grew up with. It’s like a bud of mine who grew up in Boston but works in Manhattan, he’s still a Sox fan but supports the local team too.

I was at Staples at game 7, 2 years ago between LA and Vancouver. Boy, did everyone hate me going back to the subway (snicker). If it wasn’t Vancouver. I would be for the Kings hands down.

I know and met a couple of canadians working here in L.A. The best explanation was when the Ducks and Sens were in the Cup years ago and I drove down to the OC.

Went to a In N Out burger and chat up a guy from Calgary works for a company close by. I asked him ‘I thought canadians would rally behind the Sens?”

His response was “no sane western Canadian would ever root for anyone in Ontario.”

We have Canada Night at staples when the Nucks’ visit during the regular season. It’s a good deal; it also includes tickets to Tragically Hip at the ESPN plaza which is part of Staples Center. Last time I got drunk with some friends and almost had a fight with a guy wearing a Doug Gilmour jersey. Effing Leafs..

Just got back from watching the Hershey Bears lose their last regular season game. They get the WBS Penguins for the first round of the AHL playoffs.

I think the baby Pens are going to make short work of the Bears.

Tim Thomas statement on not visiting White House after winning Stanley Cup -

"I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.

This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government.

Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL.

This is the only public statement I will be making on this topic. TT"

Tim Thomas is a great American!

That’s a tough first round draw. Unfortunately for the Bears, the Baby Pens now have a full roster given the PPens are healthy for the first time in more than a year. Those are some decent players they sent back down.
