NHL Network loving the 2006 playoffs

As the 2008 Stanley Cup finals are in full swing, and Pittsburgh has finally come off the ropes, the NHL Network is showing a lot of the great games from the 2006 playoffs. Hockey fans in general and Canes fans in particular should take note.

On Friday afternoon in the United States, the NHL Network will treat its subscribers to game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals between the Hurricanes and the Devils. That was the series clinching win, a 4-1 victory for the Canes. Personally, I'd rather see the game 2 "miracle", when Eric Staal scored with 3 seconds left to force overtime, then Nic "Secret Weapon" Wallin got the game winner on a disputed goal. This one will do, though.

On Saturday in the United States, subscribers can see the incredible game 7 of the 2006 Eastern Conference finals against Buffalo. Carolina won that game 4-2. If they show the segue from the second intermission to puck drop of the third, I am prominently featured in both the CBC and the NBC feed with my ridiculous sign proclaiming 'MY BEARD BELIEVES'. Look for that.
