I posted this in the Playoffs Board, but I feel like it has a place here too:

We've got a round 2 to deal with now. Pens are the likely opponent, but it would be foolish to just assume they get to walk through game 6 to a win at this point.
Pens, Leafs, Bruins, Rangers. One of these teams is next up for us. Let's look forward and prepare for what is to come.
To the Habs, good effort. I feel bad for Budaj. Sucks for him to come into game 4 in OT, and into game 5 the way he did. I hope your guys all recover. I stand by Gryba, and still insist that the hit on Eller was clean, but I hope Lars recovers fully, and doesn't suffer any long term effects as a player or a person.
Not quite PPG though Close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades!
Feels good to watch this team grow. 2011 I felt like we were just going through the motions until be bombed and bottomed out.
I'm glad for everything this team has done it sucked we couldn't keep guys like Kelly but I feel ( I think everyone else should) that this team Has formed a new identity. They play hard and joke around and have a good time.
I love that we have home grown talent that love to play here and just a good attitude like pesky sens, it just seems like a great atmosphere at the games and feels awesome to watch them get into the second round in the second year of the rebuild.
There's thing we have to work on but it goes to show you hard work from GMing, coaching, to scouting, to pkayers just really pays off.
