Funny thing, i got up this morning 7am to go to school and i dunno why, instincts maybe but i turned the TV on, i was watching ESPN America the day before and it was on, and the Avs-Sharks game was on 1-0 for the avs at that point, needless to say i watched aslong as i could before heading off to school
Things have started as i wanted them to...
I'm rooting for #4,#6,#7,#8 seeds <- If this would happen, i would be in 7th heaven
Wilson doesn't throw hits the way Doan was last night. He was running someone every single shift until he got that BS charging call. What a great game to watch. Wings are going to have to bring their A game every single game to win this series.
Wings-Yotes look a whole lot many a preds-Wings game a few years ago... we'd be massively outshot, and the Wings would spend a lot of time in our zone, but if we got solid goaltending and capitalized on our PP chances we would beat them
Wow! What a great first two nights of the Playoffs. Even though Im a little late I'm going to try and predict how all these series go down.
1 Caps Vs. 8 Habs- I think tonight will be a wakeup call to the Caps especially Ovie. Habs win one more at home but fall in 6
2 Devils Vs. 7 Flyers- Yes, Flyers won game one of NJ's ice but I just can't pick a team that has been inconsistent all year and has Brian Freakin Boucher in goal. Devils get their **** together and take this one going the distance in 7
3 Buffalo Vs. Boston- Boston can't score and Miller is a god of netminding. Really that simple. Bruins are a tough nosed team though that plays good D and won't go down without a fight. Sabres in 6
4 Pens Vs 5 Sens- To me game 1 was a fluke. No way Fluery can be that bad all series. Ott is down Michalek and Kovalev. Champs take this one in 6
1 Sharks Vs. 8 Avs- Sharks struggle but find a way to take it in 7. However they do nothing to quiet down the fear of their annual postseason chokefest with a subpar effort and barely squeaking out a round 1 win
3 Canuck Vs 6 Kings- Kings are going to have to have unreal goaltending from Quick to have a chance. Sedins are insane and offensive depth is great for the Nucks. Kings get overwhelmed and go down in 5
4 Phoenix Vs. 5 Detroit- Phoenix gives Detroit all it can handle with their inspired play but in the end Wings talent and experience barely squeaks them out a hard fought win in a 7 game series.
And now Drumroll!!!!!!!
2 Hawks Vs. 7 Preds- I'm going to keep this short and sweet. I like our team. I like their attitude and I like what they are saying. The problem is the Hawks are a great team and I have been burned before by optimism. Hawks in 6. Prove me wrong boys
