ITF prevails
1st 2nd 3rd 1st OT Final
Interference 2 0 0 1 3
Revolution 0 1 1 0 2
Total game time: 47:26

One of the best games I've seen in these playoffs - competition-wise. In the first period, ITF dominated, and it looked like they were going to shut the door on RV for good. Mace23 scored 2 goals, and Linix in his lanc shut RV out for the first 23:44 of the game.

After the 0-2 first period, RV made a bold goalie change and put Arcadian in with a shark. With 4:51 left in the second period Mace went around the defenders to the top of the net and squeezed the puck between the goalie and the post. This would have put ITF up 3-0, and likely sealed the game. However, a split 3-3 vote on the gj freq created what could have been a mild controversy. Citing this rule: "so long as the replay is not being used to judge whether lag due to spike or due to phase impacted a play. Instead referees should err to the side of calling lag if it is not clear.", the ref called this goal lag and the game remained 2-0 ITF.

It wasn't until the waning seconds of the second period that RV finally broke through with a goal from chrono. This was a goal that RV desperately needed heading into the 3rd period. Now with the game having only a 1 goal differential, things became much more interesting. About 5 minutes into the period, buck cat caught a shot from radmaster funk within the top margins of the crease. This led to a game tying power play goal by cocain about 1 minute later which would eventually lead to a game and series deciding overtime!

It seemed that RV's goalie swap had payed off as Arc put up 2 shut out periods. In overtime both teams had at least one great scoring chance. Ones that come to mind were a buck cat with him near the top post that the goalie grabbed and chrono's shot with plenty of open net to aim at that went wide of the top post. Finally with about 30 seconds left in overtime buck cat netted the game winning goal with an assist from Bopmem2.

Of note: Arcadian went 35:26 as a replacement goalie without letting in a single goal. ITF makes the finals for the fifth straight season. Also fur of fur played some minutes of goalie before linix showed up with no goals against.

1st star: Mace23 (2 goals)
2nd star: buck cat (game winning goal)
3rd star: Asshole (35:26 with no goals against)
rusty spork: none

Revo ties up the series!
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Revolution 2 1 0 3
Interference 0 2 0 2
Total game time: 36:00

Revolution would get off to the quick start that would need. Radmaster Funk would snipe/sneak one by Linix, who happened to be out on the crease a little as if he was a Shark, but forgot he could not react in time. Towards the end of the period, Radmaster would have a fantastic snipe past a few ITF members including the goalie to take the 2-0 lead into the period break. Pheef on the opposing end would play a great period, stuffing the few ITF rushes that they managed to get.

Bucky would show up and his leadship would pay off immediately. BLA would score within the first minute no a semi bothced play leaving bla with a shot down low. ITF would keep up the pressure as they would force a DC on Radmaster funk. Less than a minute later, ITF and Bucky would tie the game with Rad in the box to make it 2-2. With 4 minutes left in the second, Cocain would lead the charge on a 2v1 with Chrono. Feeding it to Chrono left Cocain open for a slap shot that would get by the Lancaster Linix to put Revo back ahead 3-2.

The 3-2 lead would be the final score. Bopmem almost manage to smash himself off the post and do some magic but was deemed he was still in the crease before he shot it in. Cocain would step up and play some good D with checking and positioning. ITF would ramp up the pressure but Gold and Revo were up to the challenge. There was a late scare/rush with just seconds left, but key check by Asshole would keep the lead and game in tact.

Next game is tomorrow night. Monday, 8/25/14 10pm EST. See you there!
ITF wins Game 1
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Interference 2 3 0 5
Revolution 0 1 3 4
Total game time: 36:00

The first period was a lot of back and forth affair with not a lot of great shot attempts for both teams. buck cat would be the first to get on the scoreboard for ITF after a marvelous midfield steal by that swell defenseman Tjian. Bopmem2 did his thing less than a minute later to make it 2-0 ITF to end the first period.

Best Defensive Forward nominee cocain plowed through the ITF defense to put Revo on the board and be down only one goal. Revolution controlled most of the puck this period which was the exact opposite of the first period (left side goal curse?) but would not be able to score any further goals. After a few more mass lagouts and zone crashes, ITF scored a flurry of late goals with two coming from Mace2 and one more from buck cat to end the period 5-1 ITF.

With a pretty comfortable lead, ITF made some subs which turned into an early Christmas lineup. Revolution stayed strong with the double jav lineup which proved to be superior. Antsy proclaimed from the commentator booth that Revolution would need something like one goal every 2.5 minutes to even tie the game up. Well, they destroyed that pace by scoring two quick goals within the first five minutes. Nearing the end of the period, Best Defensive Forward nominee cocain scored his hat trick for the night to put Revolution back within one. In response to this, ITF huddled up, brought back in Mace23 and buck cat, and put the game on ice.

1st Star: Mace23 (2g, 2a)
2nd Star: cocain (3g, 1a)
3rd Star: buck cat (2g, 2a)
Wooden Spoon: Superdan for not telling anyone he was too busy to write a report.
Dirtybirds move on
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Empire 0 1 1 2
Dirtybirds 1 2 3 6
Total game time: 36:00

Pretty much the same thing as the first game.
Stars:
1 - Stryke
2 - Saving
3 - BananaSquadron

rusty spork - none, it was a good game.
Round 2 begins!
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Dirtybirds 3 2 0 5
Empire 1 2 0 3
Total game time: 36:00

This game started off quickly with a zone wide grown as Saving opened the scoring for DB. There were comments, such as, "that's the only thing worse than Zipplin scoring." Eventually X'el..antsy would tie the game for Empire on a trademarked ITF goal.

T cocain> itf goal at its finiest (sp?)

I'm not sure if he will have to pay royalties. Things were quiet again until about the last minute of the period. Well, I guess there were about 100 "Dud! Saving survived..." messages, and a goal that was called lag after he tanked while trying to bk DW0 on the crease. Good defense! As I was saying, with about a minute left Trick- floats top net and pixels a goal past Rocket Dan right along the post. A little later Saving scored again making it 3-1 at the end of the period.

Through most of the 2nd period, Empire showed a lot of patience and was able to tie the game again at 3 with only 50 seconds left. Little known fact, between their two goal, Saving put another goal in net. Unfortunately, at the time, there were only two people on the goal judge freq, and the split vote went in favor of lag as the referee overruled the line judge (Please people, try to help out and fill up the goal judge freq). After tying the game, the Empire community heart was broken. It took only 25 seconds and another 11 after that for DB to go back up by two just before the period ended. Trick- was on fire, playing defense and scoring his second goal.

In the third, Empire put on a lot of pressure. DB countered with a two spider defense, Sting and Trick-. Empire seemed to finally get through it catching Sting with a penalty in the crease, however, they were not able to capitalize. Despite their pressure, the DB defense stayed strong and Krub was always in the right position as goalie to deny any attempts. ITF could take same notes and possibly get Linix back into a Shark... perhaps.

1st star: Trick- (career game with 2 goals and good defense)
2nd star: Saving (sorry zone, check his stats, he deserved it)
3rd star: Krub (gave up 3 goals, but overall solid performance and shut out 3rd period to seal the game)
rusty spork: blucka's lag (fix that if you want to win game 2)
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Interference 1 1 1 4
Kick You Apart 0 0 0 2
Total game time: 36:00

After the success in game 2, ITF decided to keep Linix in a Lanc. This proved to be the move that would shut the doors on KYA's future playoff hopes. Both teams decided to show HZ just how valuable all the players on their rosters are. Some players were allowed a whole 6 seconds of play time before SuperDan LC ended their fun.

Ok, so ITF scored the only goal in the first period, and it was likely that it would be the only goal they would need with team defense and a lanc goalie. HOWEVER!, only 30 seconds into the second period, lilwade was able to split the waters and drive home a tying goal. It stayed tied and zzzzzz for a while until buckcat scored his second goal to put ITF up again by 1. Once again, surely this would be all they'd need to seal the victory. WRONG! It only took 13 seconds for vigilanty to tie the game again with a second assist from a mysterious masked Y2Jake. Then, in the closing minute of the second period, Mace23 netted the go-ahead and game winning goal. There was another goal at the end of the game, but things had gotten pretty silly at that point.

1st star: SuperDan (for dropping the puck while bucky tried to confuse me)

2nd star: Troydan + Furry (combined 12 seconds ptime and -1.8 rating)

3rd star: Y2Jake

rusty spork: Cookiewolf again for indisputably losing this game for his team.
even rustier spork: Thrill (non-factor)

DirtyBirds Advance to Semi's
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Troll Warlordz 2 0 1 3
Dirtybirds 2 0 4 7
Total game time: 36:00

The game would start off with David Seaman on the bench for TWZ, as well as Leafy and Doobie playing double Javelins. This would start off to be a working combo early in the game. With the earlier 10pm game time, Judge69 was able to make an appearance and maybe that is what sparked the early rally. TWZ would tally the first 2 goals of the game. The jav's bullying their way to the front of the net, Doobie would force one in past the defender and over Krub to take the 1-0 lead. Doobie and Leafy would continue to do the same not too much long later before slipping a pass to Artofwar in a WB to get their second tally. Spirits would run high on the TWZ side but not for long as maybe a mental lapse 30 seconds later would have Stryke answer back to get DB back within 1. Stryke would also net his second goal of the game a few minutes later and the period would end in a 2-2 tie.

DB would take their early momentum and score right off the bat in the second with a goal from Bananasquadron. Whether it was Saving stepping onto the ice, or David entereing the game as well, DB seemed to benefit early. Not much else happened too much this period. Doobie/Leafy combo seemed to stall as they were in newer ships. A highlight for them this period, and really the first period, was TWZ's goalie Verez was playing very well. DB could have easily been up 3-4 more goals but Verez would shut them down, including a few breakaways from Stryke that he reacted very well against.

DirtyBirds were up 3-2 going into the final frame, and they kept their foot on the gas to not let TWZ back into it. MOP candidate Bananasquadron would start the scoring just over a minute into the period. Verez was up to the task up at this point, but it started to be too much. Two more goals, coming from Navee and Saving would make the score 6-2 DB with only half the period remaining. TWZ would get a few chances, but the most and DB defense would hold up. Leafy wouldn't go down without a fight as he would manage to get one by Krub with around 4 minutes left. But DB would respond under 2 minutes later to seal the game, with a goal from saving to make it 7-3.

It was a good game, good series. With the win, DirtyBirds move onto the Semi-finals to face off the 8th seed, Empire.

2nd star: Linix (shutout)
3rd star: Bopmem2 (0 own goals)
rusty spork: lilwade (negative rating in playoffs?) and Cookiewolf (indisputably the worst on his team)
DB takes it over team hospital pass
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Dirtybirds 2 1 2 5
Troll Warlordz 0 1 1 2
Total game time: 36:00

DB would look to take control of this game at the start. It would take most of the first period before the would stryke quick and hard. Goals from Styke and Bananasquadron would give them a 2-0 lead going into the 2nd period.

Second period would lead to chance for both teams but they would even out with both teams scoring 1 a piece. Nana and Doobie would each tally a goal for a 3-1 score in favor of DB.

DB would score early in the third with goals from Stryke and Trick to take the 5-1 that would last until 3 seconds left where TWZ would tally another goal from Captain, David Seaman #1.

Stars:

1st - Banasquadron
2nd - Stryke
3rd - Krub
Empire wins game of the century with an overtime snipe by Janky
1st 2nd 3rd 1st OT Final
Empire 0 2 0 1 3
The Cereal Killers 1 0 1 0 2
Total game time: 47:31

After a shocking 7-5 Empire win in game 1, the Killers faced elimination in this highly anticipated game. Both teams came out strong defensively, but 10 minutes into the first period, Zeppelin put the Killers up 1-0. Halfway through the second period bluckablucka would lag out and was replaced by Tirrax. 15 seconds later, Empire had tied the game on a goal by Iggy. Blucka returned to the game and a few minutes later, he put Empire ahead 2-1. The pressure was on TCK going into the third period, but Zeppelin tied it up in just 39 seconds. A bit later, Iggy and blucka had a clear 2v0 opportunity, but Cereal n Milk made a season saving stuff. Late in the third period, African Panda put the ball in the net, but it was narrowly called back for lag, sending the game of the century to overtime. Empire appeared to have an immediate goal, but Joe Sakic was there for the save. Less than one minute into overtime, there was a complete mass lagout, with all 12 players lagging out to spec. After a 10-15 minute break, the lag subsided enough to play. However it seemed to be a certainty that the game of the century would end on a tragic lag play. Vet status had a chance to win it, but his shot missed the target. With 30 seconds on the clock, Janky fired an indisputable clean goal past Cereal n Milk, winning the series and sending Empire to the final four. They will play one of Dirtybirds, Interference, or Revolution.

First star: Janky-
Second star: Zeppelin-
Third star: Rocket Dan
Revo defeats Admirals and advances
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Admirals 2 0 4 6
Revolution 3 5 6 14
Total game time: 36:00

Revolution surprisingly had a slow start with showing their players and started with five. Admirable Admirals showed some honor and played with only five of their own. They would be rewarded by this gesture as Duke Nukem took the opening faceoff to score in 7 seconds. Choke Artist answered back 11 seconds later to tie the game up. chrono scored his first of many goals of the night off of a Gold goalie assist. A couple minutes after this both teams had six players in and played full strength the rest of the game.

The second period is when Revolution started to heat up and scored five straight unanswered goals and a mercy victory was looking like a possibility.

gilder came online in the third period and went to work for Admirals in assisting Duke Nukem and scoring the first for himself. However, this potential comeback was short lived as Revolution went on another five goal run. Admirals saved a little face scoring two more from gilder at the end but Revolution's offense was too much for them this game.

1st Star: chrono (7g, 3a, hrp)
2nd Star: Gold (24v, 6ga)
3rd/4th/5th Stars: Duke Nukem, radmaster funk, Choke Artist (Too close)

Congrats to Admirals on a good season and good luck to Revolution in the next round.

KYA holds off late rally.
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Interference 0 2 2 4
Kick You Apart 2 3 0 5
Total game time: 36:00

Kick you apart would come out kicking with fire out the back from the very first minute. Despite being threatened with Lag after the server crashed, Lawn Dwarf's lag settled and would lead his team right out the gate with a goal sniping just below Linix. The game would settle down after the quick start but KYA would look to be in total control. The next goal goal would come from Rage. It almost mirror'd the LD snipe, but was instead a sneaky pass south to Rage who would barely sneak it by Linix to go up 2-0.

The second period would start off with more dominance from KYA. Thrill would score 2 goals in the first 5 minutes of the period to take a commanding 4-0 KYA lead. The first goal was a nice fade to the top post while the second goal was a sniper shot to the bottom post that Linix couldn't manage to grab. Bopmem and ITF would strike back with a goal of their minutes later with a top fade from Bop. After a laggy Vigilanty called back goal, he would get another chance off a 'death pass' and would slip one by for KYA to go up 5-1. It seemed as if the game was in total control, especially with The Red Raven playing well in net. KYA would let off the gas a little bit and ITF would come up with a few good chances, including a breakaway from Bucky, but TRR was up to the task and made a clutch save. However in the closing minutes of the second period, Bucky would get another shot after a big lunge at center ice, and he was on the break again with Thrill hot on his tail. Bucky did a quick up and down move and fired it off just before entering the crease to get his team within 3, with a 5-2 score in favor KYA.

With Bucky's late goal in the 2nd, ITF was bringing the momentum with them into the third. KYA seemed to be playing a heavy possession game to lure ITF out for that one big mistake, but Linix and Tjian would hold down the fort strong. Towards the middle of the period ITF would capitalize on their chances with 2 goals in 2 minutes. Bopmem2 came crashing down south inbetween defenders and fired it past TRR. Just 2 minutes later in a semi clustered formation, quick pass from Bop to Troydan would lead to a shot that he would not miss. This would bring ITF back into the game with 4 minutes left to try and tie it, score 5-4 KYA. Lawn Dwarf would rally the troops to not let this slip out of KYA's hands and tighten up on D, and keep the turnovers to a minimum. KYA would be up to the task and hold off the charging ITF and take a 1-0 lead in the best of 3 series.

First Star: Lawn Dwarf
Second Star: Thrill
Third Star: The Red Raven

Next game of this series is scheduled for:

Game 2 Scheduled for Sun Aug 10 - 10:00PM
