Was there an NHL game last night?

Yesterday my Internet activities was restricted unnecessarily!

While waiting for the replay of last night’s NHL game to air, I didn’t want to browse quite a large chunk of my normal Internets – because knowing the score while watching the game sucks. Unbeknownst to me – there was no game last night! Queue impatience, etc.

No more! (at least for the remainder of 2015 edition of the Stanley Cup).

Introducing: http://wasthereannhlgamelastnight.appspot.com/

Today (2015-06-07) it says YES, hopefully tomorrow (2015-06-08) it will say NO :) //update – it did!

This is my first trek into google cloudappengine thingy. Very much work in progress but it’s enough for now.

NHL 2011 Playoff – Bets on!

Finally!

Time for some not so good sleeping rhythm in the next 8 weeks! Bye – bye circadian rhythm.
I like the 10.30pm games – means they start 5.30am here, which means early breakfast, watch game and then get to work :)

Who will fall, who will crush who, who will win!

The matches:

Eastern Conference

(1) Washington vs (8) Rangers
(2) Philadelphia vs (7) Buffalo
(3) Boston vs (6) Montreal
(4) Pittsburgh vs (5) Tampa Bay

Washington should not have a problem with Rangers.
My bets in this conference is that the Caps, Philly, Montreal and Tampa goes through to the next round. Would be nice though to see Rangers and Buffalo beat the team above but I think that might be to push it too far.

Western Conference

(1) Vancouver vs (8) Chicago
(2) San Jose vs (7) Los Angeles
(3) Detroit vs (6) Phoenix
(4) Nashville vs (5) Anaheim

Chicago has a lot of good players and they have a bit of experience from the last years. But is it enough? I don’t think they’ll be able to kick Vancouver down.
Sharks or Kings..  hm. So hard. Antti Niemi in goal in Sharks might make the difference, but by default I do not like the Sharks so have to side with the Kings on this one.
Detroit will beat Phoenix, again. Please. :)
Nashville.. nobody likes Nashville huh? Very even team. As far as I can tell Nashville hasn’t been this high up ever in the post-season. Nice to see them here. I’m going to side with Anaheim on this one though, like the players there more.

 

Detroit Red Wings – Boston Bruins 13/2 2010

Ah, finally. That felt good.

Maybe Boston was a bit down but honesly, 6-1? A few shots from Boston that hit the posts but it didn’t feel like they sent many really difficult towards Jimmy Howard.

Been a while since Red Wings won this – and especially nice to see the big names doing what they’re supposed to be doing :)
