I've been watching the games, but I think I've been spoiled by regular season success for sure. That being said, I watched every minute of the Vancouver game today and was on the edge of my seat the entire game.
My son is 2 and he's our first. After 2 years you have a routine down and you can almost set your watch to it most nights. Night games get DVRd and watched usually starting around 8-8:30. I'm home alone with him this weekend so today's game was watched during his nap. At his age he doesn't want to sit and watch a hockey game yet. He gets excited when it comes on and yells "HOCKEY!" but as with any excitement a 2 year old shows it's short lived and he wants to build something with blocks. So I avoid social media and LGP until I can watch the game. If it gets spoiled, no big deal.
With that said, as a fan I think it's 2 things. 1) Knowing the Olympic break is coming which means a 2+ week break, and 2) Just wanting to get back to the playoffs so they can prove this isn't just another flash in the pan.
