Les nouvelles

  • Playoff updates!
    • NHL
      • Philadelphia/Boston: Holy crap.  Being the first team since 1975 to come back from being down 3-0 games, the Philadelphia Flyers are going on to the Eastern Finals to face Montreal.  First they down 3-0 in the series, then they were down 3-0 in the game.  But they came back from both of those deficits to win 4-3.  Say hello to Montreal, Flyers.  I actually sort of looked forward to seeing Boston in the east finals with us.  Bummer.
      • For the first time in playoff history, the 7th and 8th seeded team will be playing each other in the conference finals.
      • What else is interesting?  In the West, you've got the top 2 teams that battled for top spot all season long in the conference finals.  In the East, you've got the bottom 2 playoff teams that barely got in the playoffs.  Interesting, eh?  The actual finals themselves is going to be one hell of a whirlwind.
    • AHL
      • Texas/Hamilton: Needing OT to settle the score, Hamilton won it 3-2.
    • Memorial Cup
      • Windsor/Brandon: Windsor just ransacked the host team!  9-3 was the final, but OMG the Spitfires had 9-0 for the longest time!
  • IIHF WHC scores!
    • Slovakia/Denmark: Denmark got a stellar 6-0 win over the Slovaks.  IIHF
    • Canada/Norway: HOLY CREPES!  Only being able to catch the first half of the game, I left when it was 2-1 for Canada.  And then when I check back after school - BAM!  12-1!  HOLY!  Canada totally annihilated Norway!  And with a goal and three assists, Jordan Eberle got an early b-day present.IIHF
    • Finland/Belarus: The Finns got a 2-0 win over Belarus to continue through the Qualification round.  IIHF
    • Sweden/Latvia: Sweden got a solid 4-2 win over Latvia.  IIHF
  • AC Milan's manager, Leonardo has left his post under mutual consent with the football club.  The Guardian
  • Rumours have it that Thierry Henry has signed an initial deal with MLS club New York Red Bulls.  I doubt these rumours are true, so don't count on seeing the Frenchman on any pitch near you.  Why do I say this?  Henry knows better than to sign with a MLS club at them moment.  His skill is too rich for the club and no matter how much money they're offering, you got to go to a club that has a chance at winning!  Or has good morals.
  • Happy birthday to Alain Vigneault (40), Roy Halladay (33), and Francois Steyn (23) (South African rugby player, FYI).  2 very good athletes and one very good coach.  Very deserving of the b-day props.
