The 0 for 2 club...Your vote on which teams can come back to tie their series

The Habs
The Caps
The Flames
The Flyers
The Blues
The Blue Jackets
The Sharks

A whopping 7 of the 8 first round teams fell 0 to 2 against their opponents (including the Habs, obviously)

Vote here on which teams you believe will make a comeback and at least take it to a game 7. Choose more than one team if you like...

Maybe you believe that none of them will come back?

I went with the Flames, Habs and Flyers. The Caps are a good team but they have lost two at home already and I don't see them beating Lundqvist right now, he is in the zone.

I can see the Habs winning both games at the Bell Centre and going back to Boston 2-2. It's winning on the road that has been this team's problem all season and it has continued in the playoffs. Win at home and win Game 5 or 7...

The Flyers are a good team aswell and if Biron can play like he did last playoffs then they could come back.

The Flames are like the Habs. Good at home and terrible on the road. The Hawks are a good team but pretty green in the playoffs. They could fall apart if the Flames put the pressure on them with a couple of wins.

Nice analysis

It seems hard to believe that all six of these teams are already the walking dead.

We will find out soon enough

I certainly hope the Habs dig deep down and do what they did in 93.

If Markov is back Montreal can do it, otherwise it's a sweep.

I voted Washington.

I think the flyers can come back. I thought they were really unlucky in both games, especially in game two

I had pretty much the same thinking

Washington Calgary Philly.

Montreal maybe, but I doubt it, unless Markov comes back and Gainey decides that the sabotage of the first line is over.

Montreal if they get Markov and/or Lang back and start playing their game.
Washington if they start going gung-ho on offence and start turning their series into a run-and-gun style.
Calgary Flames are done, Chicago is just a better team.
Philadelphia Flyers can win if they can keep it a physical series and turn it into a game of dirty, grinding hockey and keep it away from a skilled series.
Blues and Blue Jackets are just too inexperienced and young at this point.

I made this thread two days ago, that's why.

I put the Sharks on the list now, but can't update the poll

Varlamov is the goalie now. Rangers have the better goaltending hands down but for the rest, Washington has TOO many weapons and too much speed to get running back and forth against them.
