It's NHL playoff time. The 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs of the National Hockey League (NHL) began on April 11, 2012, after the conclusion of the 2011–12 NHL regular season.
"It's not an easy thing to go through. It's the first time in my career that I've been a healthy scratch multiple games in a row. I just had to learn how to deal with that and get over it, and the good thing was that we had a great group of guys in here helping me out with that. It's a tough situation to be in, but I just had to stay positive so I could be ready when they needed me."
Carkner admitted that the series with the Rangers has been hard-fought on both sides, but that Ottawa could benefit from the lift of Game 4. As the Sens head into what has become a best-of-three starting with Game 5 Saturday (7 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC), the defenseman intends to keep helping out any way he can.
"It's been pretty tight the whole way through, so hopefully we're going to carry the momentum from Game 4 into [Game 5]," he said. "It's been a battle; we're trying to inch our way to the net and [Rangers goalie Henrik] Lundqvist has been playing great. I think so far it's been pretty even, but I think if we keep doing what we can do, we can come through."
We will see most of the biggest NHL stars playing in this years postseason, including, Sydney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, The Sedin Brothers,Patrick Kane, Ilya Kovalchuck and much much more.
After the regular season, the standard 16 teams qualified for the playoffs. The Vancouver Canucks were the Western Conference regular season champions and Presidents' Trophy winners with 111 points.
The New York Rangers were the Eastern Conference regular season champions, finishing the season with 109 points. The Florida Panthers made the playoffs for the first time since 2000, ending the NHL's longest postseason drought streak.
Although the Philadelphia Flyers are up 3-0 in their series with the Pittsburgh Penguins, their fans are less than happy with the antics pulled by the Penguins during Game 3. Here is Flyers' fans' frustration, as expressed by Broad Street Hockey.
With Monday night’s Game 3 in Washington, the Boston Bruins will have had a Patriots' Day game in each of their last six playoff runs, including all five in the Claude Julien era.
Officially synonymous with the Boston Marathon and the 11:05 a.m. Red Sox game at Fenway Park, the third Monday of April has now inevitably incorporated a Stanley Cup nightcap as part of its annual regional ritual.
And in their visit to the Capitals, although the Bruins’ sole concern is to regain the upper hand in the deadlocked Eastern Conference quarterfinals, there is also a trivial stake. They are aiming for their first four-game Patriots’ Day winning streak in franchise history.
It is just one of the umpteen telling testaments to the franchise replenishing its relevance in recent memory. Entering Monday’s game, the Bruins are 7-6 on this local holiday, with all contests occurring in the postseason.
But after their first three spontaneously scheduled Marathon Monday games occurred in succession from 1978 to 1980 and the first seven within a span of 12 years, spring hockey grew sparse in New England.
There was a five-year gap between Bruins’ Patriots’ Day games from 1989 and 1994, followed immediately by a 10-year hiatus ending in 2004, the final pre-lockout campaign.
That season, a 2-0 home loss to the Julien-led Montreal Canadiens, which completed a collapse in the opening round, ruined what could have been a perfect day for Boston sports that began with the Marathon and a Red Sox victory over the Yankees.
Four years later, a few scenarios turned 180 degrees as the Bruins met the Habs in another Game 7 in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. Julien was now behind the Boston bench and had helped them delete a 3-1 deficit in the series to force a rubber game at the Bell Centre, just as he had done with Montreal in 2004.
But a vastly different collection of black and gold skaters brooked the same basic fate as their predecessors, enduring a shutout loss that terminated their season. It also marked the franchise’s seventh consecutive setback on New England’s early springtime holiday.
