Thumbs up Stanley Cup Playoffs!

Round 1 has been insanely entertaining and competitive so far. So far, no one is emerging as completely dominant, though the Penguins and my Caps are starting to hit a stride. The fucking Habs gave us fits in the first game and the first 2/3rds of the second, but since then we've absolutely reamed them. Ovechkin clearly does not take kindly to being called out after a bad game, and him and Backstrom took it out on Halak. It's becoming abundantly clear that Theodore is worthless in the playoffs, but it looks like Varly can pick up the slack. Here's hoping we can close the deal quickly. I think the Pens have figured out the Senators, too, and will probably take it in 5. Crosby has been playing out of his mind. Bruins and Sabres will be a low-scoring, 7 game grudge match it looks like, and ditto for the Devils and Flyers. In the West, I'd love to see Phoenix and Nashville move on to the next round. The Sharks are already starting their playoff choking, and the Canucks might be in trouble after Luongo shit the bed last night. Here's who I think will move on to the semi-finals:

East:
Capitals
Penguins
Devils
Sabres

West:
Coyotes
Blackhawks
Canucks
Avalanche

Beyond that, who knows. Sound off!

You live in Montreal and you're a Bruins fan? Is that even legal?

We are going to beat the Devils in round 1, no question. For those who don't know, the Flyers record is 5-1 vs. New Jersey during the regular season this year.

After that... as long as we don't have to play Pittsburgh, the sky is the limit, and anything goes.

Aside from that, I agree with most of your picks. The Sharks are going to choke, that's a no-brainer.

We were 4-0 against the Penguins last year and still got knocked out by them in the second round. Different teams, different situation, but still. Regular season records aren't always reliable predictors when it comes to the playoffs.

I realize that, but still. I have a lot of faith. Right now the Flyers are actually beginning to play like the cohesive team they should've been all season, maybe minus much offensive power. Boucher has been superb.

Now that I'll agree with. There are a lot of exciting goalies in this playoffs. Rinne for the Preds and Rask for the Bruins have been really fun to watch.

I think the bigger crime would be living in Canada and not liking Hockey at all. He's probably just mad that the Sabres won the divison and not the Habs

Powerslave85 is right. It looks like the Sabres/Bruins series is gonna be a seven game grudge match. The Sabres will take it in the end though. The Sabres have been good all year long and Ryan Miller has been awesome in net. They have a good shot at going far into the playoffs. I'll start to worry if we have to play the Penguins though.

I've been a Bruins fan for as long as I remember, needless to say that gave me a fair lot of trouble when cheering for them over the years here in Montreal, I did start taking for them to upset my dad when I was young, he was so fanatic about the habs ...


I even went to see my idol hockey player Bam Bam Cam Neely at the old Boston garden in '91. We have a good team this year but for some reason we are unable to score goals and Miller is hard to beat but I predict a Bruins win in 6 games



Cheers !
