nhl play offs

can we please get rid of the idea that you have to play hockey in order to know the game because that’d be nice


What rivalry?

honestly like… i love how ngozi set it up so that jack and bitty has skyped every day from graduation until the beginning of bitty’s junior year

because you really can’t argue against that??? that is like 100% proof that jack and bitty are in a happy, healthy, steady and passionate relationship where communication is open and they have no doubts

like idk… the long distance relationship, especially if one side is basically famous and in the NHL, can be played off with a lot of internal angst eg. the worry of cheating, dissatisfaction of relationship bc theyre away from each other, etc. (i’m ruling out the angst of jack & bitty having to hide their relationship because it looks like they’ve openly communicated about that and are mutually okay with keeping it a secret until both are comfortable) but nO!!!!!!! THEY HAVE SKYPED EVERY NIGHT ADN THEY ARE HAPPY AND NOTHING CAN GET IN THE WAY OF JACK ZIMMERMANN AND ERIC BITTLE

it’s just so refreshing!!!!! to see this being portrayed. like, angst is nice but goddamn it’s so assuring for ppl in LDRs… (esp. lgbtq+ couples) like… you and yr partner CAN make this LDR work and u CAN be happy!!!!! aH

“And then let it roll”.
  • Reporter: Do you feel homesick?
  • Artemi Panarin: Yes, I do. I dream about it sometimes. I miss Korkino, Russia. Motherland is calling me, you know, and it’s tough to ignore it.
  • Reporter: How do you feel about your first NHL play-offs?
  • Artemi Panarin: I haven’t thought about it yet. I think you should be focused on every game. Play-offs are in April, so for now I just want to play hockey.
  • Reporter: Young hockey player is interested, “How to be just like you?”
  • Artemi Panarin: Are there people who want to be just like me?! *Artemi was in shock*
  • Reporter: Yes! There are many!
  • Artemi Panarin: Well, it’s a hard question. I don’t even know myself how to become a great hockey player. You need to really want it. But as I experienced it myself in NHL, you need to want it, but not that much as I did.
  • Reporter: May you explain it?
  • Artemi Panarin: If you crave it, you won’t get it. I experienced it once. You need to want it deep inside and then let it roll!
  • Reporter: That was good!
  • Artemi Panarin: And you gotta push yourself obviously! You won’t have anything if you don’t work hard to get it.
