"118. Posted by Kiel on7 hours agoI like ice hockey, I really do. What I still struggle to accept though is the idea that a final is played in a minimum of four matches up to a total of seven games, it's way too long; just give 'em one match to battle it out or one game at home & one away." *******Yeah. Then decide a deadlock on penalties. Or draw lots. Muppet.
76. JS72"What relevance does the massacre of people at a festival have to do with an ice hockey team - have some respect."Just shows how little you know about this team and what they did in Las Vegas following the shooting - everyone in the organisation helped wherever they could. The back number 58 will never be issued to a Las Vegas player in tribute to the 58 people killed.

Scores for artistic merit ?
Whatever happens, there’s a movie coming out next year. Who’s going to play the grizzled manager, with a chip on his shoulder even if he hasn’t got one....Harvey Keitel?

Great to see, although Disney will have a movie out before xmas.
Enjoyed my first televised NHL hockey game in many years last weekend (fifth game of Eastern final). Glad to see there were no fights (which are becoming less common apparently); ice-hockey played well is one of sport's great spectacles. I saw enough of Alex Ovechkin's breathtaking skill to realise I've missed watching one of ice-hockey's all-time greats - like missing Thierry Henry in his prime.
Great - Ice-hockey on BBC news! Others noted, ice-hockey thrives in the UK below the radar: despite lack of funds, little sponsorship, no free to air tv. UK Elite league brings Belfast, Nottingham, Fife, Cardiff etc together. Strong grass roots too nationwide. Skating alone is great to watch; add the combat, team work, electric pace, drama to get the crowds going. No 0-0 draws! BBC ICE - MOTD!!!
As incredible a story as this is I’m still hoping Ovechkin can finally win a cup. He deserves one even if he hasn’t always had the best supporting cast. For Vegas it would be akin to Leicesters PL win but I couldn’t help but feel for Maple Leaf fans if the Knights stroll in, season 1, and win a Stanley Cup!
