I'm hype. Playoffs are already fun but there's nothing like having the chance to knock out your rival and reigning cup champs in the first round

We wanted a legit rivalry? This'll help. The teams don't like each other generally and now to be playing again in the playoffs for the second time. Yeah this ought to do it.

I think losing Letang is going to have a huge psychological effect on the Penguins. Not sure if they will enter the playoffs fully believing in themselves. Jackets could take this one if they play a physical series and Bob plays to his full potential.

With all due respect, I doubt the Pittsburgh team got the news about Letang from the newswire. If the players didn't know the exact severity long before now, then everything I have ever read about a locker room in pro sports has been a joke.

We were tied at 100 points on March 19th with the Caps when we clinched. Pens were at 99 points. In the 8 games since, the Caps jumped us by 8 points (now 10 in their extra game last night) and the Pens made up 4 points. What a fall. Woof.

In regards to the Pens series - the home team won every game this season. Even with all their injuries, Pens are 31-6-4 at home.

We are 20-1-2 this season after two days rest. I like us in Game 1.

So assuming we are 3 seed can we estimate when games 3 and 4 will be (home games)?

Depends on TV scheduling, but my guess is Games 1 and 2 4/12 and 4/14 in Pittsburgh, then Games 3 and 4 in NWA on 4/16 and 4/18 OR 4/17 and 4/19 if they put a two-day travel break in there.

The Rangers are done and resting guys. They're locked into WC #1 with nothing else to play for.

Just win.

If we can spank 'em, that'd be great. But just win.

Assuming we start on the road... winning 1 of those first 2 in Pittsburgh would be HUGE.

Pretty much this. Pitt fans won't look at the Jackets as true rivals until we knock them out of the playoffs.

Here's to a healthy, entertaining series.

Have you been to a pens/jackets game? It's almost unbearable. I went to one of the wins this season against the Pens and afterwards it was all pens fans shouting

"how many cups do you have guys?"

"how many playoff series have you won"


Crosby/Malkin have made them forget their losing ways. It's time we remind them what its like to play golf in April.

I know I'm not alone in saying I want to beat the Pens just to shut their fans up.

All along, I think we knew it would come down to this.

It just seems right, CBJ vs PIT

Yeah I dunno what it is. Most of them are good people. One of my best friends is from Pittsburgh. We don't talk about sports for a reason - he turns into a jackass immediately.

It's unfortunate the Pens are so banged up. We have to listen to a bunch of BS about how they're going to poop all over the CBJ anyway now, and if they lose, we're going to have to listen to all the excuses about how they would have pooped all over the CBJ if their team wasn't so injured.

Beating them won't shut them up, but I'd rather listen to them whine than listen to them gloat.

Monday Night Raw wrestling is coming to the Schott on 4/17 so I'm hoping CBJ are off that night

They don't understand their own history. I grew up in Pittsburgh during the Pens' formative years (the Penguins started playing when I was 1) and the team was mostly bad. If you chart the team's first decade-and-a-half of existence, it doesn't look that much different that the CBJ's, save for the occasional bankruptcy, but on-ice the results are pretty similar. And that's in a league with fewer teams. I loved the team anyway, much as I have done in my adult life with the Jackets.

This is why I hate playing the Penguins in the playoffs. Those are my people in a way, but in these situations I want nothing more than for them to shut up. (If you'd have told me 20 years ago that my greatest sports moment as a fan experiencing it live would be a game in which a Pittsburgh team lost - and yeah I'm talking about game 4 - I'd have told you you were a dope.)

If they open here on a Sunday, that could be the NBC national afternoon game.
