damn...was hoping it'd be a good time to pick up another jersey
playoff tix actually decreased compared to previous years according to shorty last night
starts off at $85 apparently


not gonna lie but i like the Flames chances a tiny bit better, Canucks have always been so-so against young teams that are good in transition and have good foot speed.
I'm still expecting an epic 7 game series but really at this point it's anyone's guess. I don't think anyone has a significant edge over the other.
Either way my expectations have been exceeded...i'm just glad there's still hockey for at least a few more weeks.

For those wondering about Mark Giordano's bicep torn injury

Quote:
For a complete tear in which surgery is needed, return to full sports participation may take 4-6 months. Supervised physical therapy is typically advised.

Partial tears usually heal within 3-6 weeks.

Resume regular training only when you have normal shoulder and upper arm strength, full range of motion, and no pain.

The big advantage for the Canucks is we have the veteran team and lets see if the young Flames players can play a consistent series. As well they are not a big tough team like the Jets, Anaheim and other western teams which will help our chances as well.

The Flames win was great for a few reasons:
-clinch playoff spot
-clinch playoff spot for Winnipeg
-eliminate LA
-sets the first round match-up against Canucks

Assuming the Canucks win the series, hopefully we won't be all banged up (unlike if we played a bigger more physical team).

Not yet.
If the Lames lose or lose in OT/Shootout, then the Canucks get home ice.
If the Lames win, then the Nucks need just a single point to clinch home ice.

*IF* Canucks clinch home ice, the first game will most likely be on Wednesday April 15 and the second game will be Friday April 17.

April 16, Rogers arean will have Ariana Grande and April 18th Rogers arena will have Def Leppard.

Buyer beware for people looking for playoff tickets, I was just browsing craigslist and by some fluke chance I saw an ad that contained my season ticket/playoff seats. This person claims to have up to 8 seats in a row which I'm sure its all fake tickets. So make sure when you buy tickets you get proof of purchase, Canucks ID, drivers license, and possibly meet at a police station lobby because it looks like scammers are out in full force already.

This Jets' playoff anthem sounds pretty good. Would Eminem approve?

we only need 1 point tomorrow to get home ice. therefore, if we lose in regulation tomorrow, calgary gets it.

2. The greater number of games won, excluding games won in the Shootout. This figure is reflected in the ROW column.

3. The greater number of points earned in games between the tied clubs. If two clubs are tied, and have not played an equal number of home games against each other, points earned in the first game played in the city that had the extra game shall not be included. If more than two clubs are tied, the higher percentage of available points earned in games among those clubs, and not including any "odd" games, shall be used to determine the standing.
Based on this year's results:

Oct 8, 2014 Vancouver 4, Calgary 2
Dec 20, 2014 Calgary 2, Vancouver 3 (OT)
Jan 10, 2015 Calgary 1, Vancouver 0
Feb 14, 2015 Vancouver 2, Calgary 3

Calgary has earned 5 points against us. Vancouver has earned 4 points against them.

Calgary has the tiebreaker.

Tie-Breaking procedure
If two or more clubs are tied in points during the regular season, the standing of the clubs is determined in the following order:

1. The fewer number of games played (i.e., superior points percentage).
2. The greater number of games won, excluding games won in the Shootout. This figure is reflected in the ROW column.
3. The greater number of points earned in games between the tied clubs. If two clubs are tied, and have not played an equal number of home games against each other, points earned in the first game played in the city that had the extra game shall not be included. If more than two clubs are tied, the higher percentage of available points earned in games among those clubs, and not including any "odd" games, shall be used to determine the standing.
4. The greater differential between goals for and against for the entire regular season. NOTE: In standings a victory in a shootout counts as one goal for, while a shootout loss counts as one goal against.
