Sabres/Canes predictions

Well, both teams are up 3-0 so there is a pretty good chance we know what will happen. The Flyers have played both......

Predictions in the East Coast Final???

boston (baseball) came from down 3-0 just last year... no one would have guessed that to happen. it is by no means over until its over. i won't predict future series until the current ones are over

in terms of the actual sports yes... but i don't think it's any easier to come down 3-0 in baseball than it is in hockey. it's comparable.

I'd say it's easier. You're facing the same lineup every night in the playoffs in hockey. In baseball, you get what the Red Sox had that year and win game 4 then come back with an excellent pair of starters in games 5 and 6 (Schilling and Pedro) and then it's on to game 7, where anything can happen. You don't have anything like that in hockey.

ok, thats probably true. But still, i don't think 3-0 should be considered a lock in any sport

yes... but the problem is that there is much less carry-over from a baseball game. in hockey you can go out and rough up a player... someone gets dinged... a lot can happen that will effect the next game, which isn't the case in a baseball game.

Which is another reason why it's easier in baseball.

I agree. In fact, it's happened more in hockey than baseball (3 to 1, I think). But that doesn't mean it's easier. You never know.

Just become the outcome say one thing doesn't mean the chances are the same.

this is true... but the momentum that exists in the two sports isn't similar in the slightest. you can ride a hot goalie for a few games in a row... you cannot do this in baseball. this is a big difference when talking about running off wins like that...

In theory only. What are the chances of two teams coming back being down 3-0 in a series. Neither team may sweep...........but it's gonna happen

Assuming both of those teams win, its gonna be a dogfight.

The Canes have more top-end scorers, both are complete teams. I think Buffalo's speed could hurt the Canes if/when they turn the puck over. I'm pulling for the Canes, but I see this as a toss up. I'll say Canes in 7 on the strength of their forwards.

If this series happens, it's going to be a great one. And alot of fun to watch. I'd have to give a slight edge to the Canes.

IF they go ahead wrap up their current series...
it will be a good series. I think the Sabres win in 6 or 7 - they seem to have better finishers.

I hope the canes can win it...don't really care if they win it in 4 or 7 though.
