Hawks, Wild, & Stars all go home & tie up the series

So who's making it out of the first round after being down 0-2? I have to think at least one of them will make a successful comeback and move on.

(I want to say which team I really hope doesn't come back... but I don't wanna jinx it )

I'll stick with my prediction from before which is Chicago, but no comeback out of those 3 would surprise me.

This is craziness. Makes me hope L.A. can at least give the Sharks a bit of a headache before they advance.

Dallas probably has the best chance because of the Ducks injuries followed by Chicago.

Chicago has played well enough to have won the series already. I think they'll win it yet. The other two I expect to just lose out.

Sticking with my predictions before the playoffs started for these 3 series, chicago win, minesota win, ducks win. Minesota will win in 6, the other 2 series go game 7. It really looks like the wild have shut down the Avs.

It's also crazy that all three of these teams shutout the opposition in their first home (game 3). On the same night, no less... This has been a pretty strange first round.

Minnesota Wins. Without Barrie, 5 out of Colorado's 6 defensemen have zero answer for the Wilds forecheck and cycle game. Cant break the puck out to save their life, which ruins Colorados transition game.

Ducks, blues, and avs all have significant, potentially series altering injuries

Wouldn't be shocked to see all three win, honestly.

Wild and Hawks.

Hawks could have won in 4, but then again St Louis could have won in 4. It has been that close, so 2-2 right now is about right.

I think Chicago has the best chance. They've started rolling and look great.

Anaheim is a great team, but with Getzlaf potentially missing more time and Robidas out for the season they may be in over their head injuries wise.

What has happened to the Avs offense? It seems to have completely dried up and Minnesota seems to have found their groove.

You could blame it on the Avs youth playing in a hostile environment or the goalie switch or the Barrie injury, but really I just think the Wild D effort stepped up overall.

Not surprised they are giving the Avs fits after the headaches they caused Chicagos similar offensive firepower this year.

I didn't expect Dallas making it 2-2. Thought it would be 3-1 Anaheim. Would love to see the Stars pull it off.

The Wild D has been good but they have spent the last two games in the offensive zone most of the night so that helps. Varlamov has stood on his head.

Minnesota is making the Avs look like they're being coached by Sacco again. Props to them, we can't seem to defend against them or get any puck pressure.
