Playoffs are on! Holy crap have I missed games that matter. And good hockey too. Although my predictions are going to shit.
Canucks are up on the Blackhawks 3-0. I didn’t see this happening. Don’t want to see this happening. Canuck fans are a pain in the ass as it is, now they are becoming unbearable.
Sharks and LA are tied 1-1 in their series, but I have watched these games and really the Sharks should be up 2-0. They are just outplaying LA.
Caps lead the Rangers 2-1. Close games, and I think that if the Rangers win the next game the Caps are in trouble.
Buffalo and Flyers are tied 1-1. Miller has been lights out.
Detroit is leading Phoenix 2-0. Datsyuk is ridiculous. Best player these playoffs so far.
The Preds are up on the Ducks 2-1. Didn’t see this coming either, I figured that the Ducks would win this pretty easily. But Rinne and Weber have been real good. Selanne has been great too.
Canadiens are up 2-0 on the Bruins. Really didn’t see this coming. At all. I figured the Bruins were a lock for the conference finals. It all hinges on this next game for the Bruins.
And finally, the Pens and Lightning are tied 1-1 in a series I have absolutely no interest in.
In Oilers news, they have just signed Curtis Hamilton to an entry level deal, following Pitlick who signed last week.
In league news, Torres demolished Seabrook with a hit and didn’t get suspended. Other than my absolute hatred of the Canucks, I’m pretty much thinking its a good call. Keep your head up kid! Especially coming around the net. That said, Torres is starting to be known for these predatory hits so I wouldn’t be surprised should he get all sorts of crap coming his way now.
Phoenix will move to Winnipeg, supposedly as soon as the end of their playoffs. I wonder how many people show up to their game tonight?
Bobby Ryan stomped on foot and was suspended for 2 games. Not the brightest move.
And here are the final regular season standings:
