The Jets lost 3 of their defensemen this off-season. Whereas Trouba’s departure was inevitable it’s kind of sad that Myers and Chiarot also chose other teams. I guess Winnipeg isn’t the best place to live after all =) (although, I hope that I’ll visit it one day). The silver lining is that now they have enough money to sign Laine and Connor and, oh boy, I do hope that Laine won’t get a crazy long contract. He’s a good player but no one can predict what’s going to happen.

The Bruins win 5-1 and that’s pretty awesome — not only because game 7 in the Stanley Cup finals sounds intense and dramatic but also because game 6 was surprisingly okay in terms of referees’ decisions. No controversial penalties or missed faults, they even counted the Blues goal after a video review. Now my only hope is that it’ll be like that in the last game.

The Jets were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs yesterday and it’s not the problem by itself. It’s not the end of the world that they couldn’t make it past the first round. The problem that the “do-or-die” game, game 6, was a demonstration of one-sided hockey. St Louis wanted to win and did everything to get the necessary result. Winnipeg… well, after the first two periods they had just 6 shots on goal. So, first the Knights, then the Jets. Now I don’t have any preferences and can just enjoy some good hockey =)

In general, right now I have a chance to be 100% on my playoff predictions. My choices were — Flames, Sharks, Stars, Jets and Lightning, Bruins, Capitals and Penguins. 4 of these teams have already finished they 2018-19 season and 2 are trailing 2-3 in their series. Remind me to never ever bet on sports results =)

Thanks to another PS Store sale I bought NHL 19 yesterday and it hooked me immediately with its new threes mode =( I haven’t even checked out any other modes yet — instead I’m having a lot of fun playing Threes Circuit and collecting mascots. The weekend is ruined =(
