I sorta see it, but Smith is no Hasek.

I'm wondering whether 2003 Ducks is better, but Oates/Kariya isn't an apt comparison either.

4th line center Gilbert Brulé with his second of the playoffs.
All of our centers have combined for like two goals in the playoffs since 2007.

Regardless of that, he still would have been more useful than Luke Adam.

To the extent that they're a hard-working, defensive-minded team who relies on their goaltender and timely scoring, I can buy it. Apples to apples player comparisons will never work, but I see some similar qualities.

And that's it. No OT this time...

Unless the Hawks can kill the rest of this penalty and then score 3 goals...nah, not happening.

He's certainly doing his best impression so far.

Man, Yotes v. Preds and Blues v. Kings. Who'da thunk it?

Are you already counting the extra-attacker goal that will certainly come?

Chipchura adds one more. 4-0.

Man, the Brule goal and this one were just perfect setups. And Bickell lost his man on BOTH of them.

YES! Phoenix winning makes me so happy. Only problem is that I like all 4 western teams in the 2nd round.

Phoenix, Nashville, St. Louis, or LA will be in the Cup Finals. Amazing.

None of those teams have ever won a Cup, and two of them have never even made it to the conference finals.

I was really hoping that the Yotes would be swept out because I absolutely despise them but the Hawks are just too crappy and flawed.
Also, Kane has been awful this series and this season in general.
He has a couple assists but outside of that pass to Hossa and shootout goal vs. the Wild he hasn't looked like anything special this season.

Anyways, go Preds!
Sweep those ****ers out so that people in Phoenix only get to attend two more NHL playoff games for little to no money.

Yep, pretty good chance that yet another franchise is going to win their first before us. Blehh..

That's probably why I like all of them. I'm not sure who to root for. Usually I have the opposite problem, at least in the East -- I don't know who to root for because I hate all the teams.

Kane gets a 10 minute misconduct.

Stay classy.

At least he came back for the handshakes.

Now he can go party in his new mansion, maybe shortchange and knock out some cab drivers, etc.

Can you imagine if Philly is the only Cup Winner left in the second round (I'm not counting the old Sens franchise)?

Nope, I don't care what number it ends up being.
If we need to move up, we have two 2nd's.

I loathe Phoenix and want them out ASAP.
