No, no. He's saying the opposite.

Watching overtime playoff hockey will make your heart feel like you're on a motorcycle airdrop on coke.

I figured, but I'm also literal minded/autistic brained so I figured I'd ask.

The game was one giant adrenaline pump. It was insane. I didn't know sports could make me feel like this.

Hey the Rangers looked pretty poo poo and I'm not expecting anything but I will say the one thing I liked in the game was Kakko being very good. He was the lone bright spot for me.

Well, the upside of this embarrassing Oilers loss is it means they're one step closer to getting Alexis Lafreniere.

I just realized, are there special overtime rules? They can't have infinite overtimes if they're booking three games a day per rink.

There are infinite overtimes until there's a winner. Don't know how it works out but I guess they have a lot of built in schedule flexibility. The top 4 round robin will just have regular season overtime.

It's great when it's two teams you don't care about. When it's your own team it's all the enjoyment of suffering a giant anxiety attack every eight seconds for a technically endless stretch of time.

I've been to 8 playoff games and I believe three of them have gone to overtime (the MAF game in 2014, the game where Werenski took the puck to the face, one against the Caps). The one against the Capitals went to double overtime and by the start of the second overtime, I was drained and just wanted someone to win.

I went to the Canucks/Stars 4 OT game back in 07. When it was over people cheered for like five seconds then raced for the exits faster than if they'd been blown out 7-1. Everyone was just physically and emotionally drained afterwards.

It might gently caress with the TV schedules but it's not like the arenas have anything else to do if they just push things out.

Sportsnet/Rogers would surely just bump whatever the gently caress they have planned, NBC might dump a game to a different channel.

Let's talk Football.

Playoff hockey is definitely back because people are debating if something was intentional or not.

As for me. It looked like his skate simply bounced off the ice a bit. Didnít look intentional given how fast it was all happening.

I don't personally think it was intentional, I don't like Tchachuk, but it looks like his skate kind of bounces around.

is Tkachuk's role anything more than to be a huge stinkyhole and to try and provoke people into fighting him and eating five minutes?

is this a recognised strategy in hockey or is this purely a Tkachuk thing?
