Yup. But this series is nearly perfectly scheduled. I could potentially watch all the games, since I have no University on a Thursday, and after Eastern there's a break. I just hope that the schedules for the future rounds will be equally fortunate
Staal and Girardi were horrendous in that series and got second pairing minutes, I don't even think they faced Ovechkin. They are much better now. Redden and Rozsival were definitely our best pairing but they tired out towards the end of the series. And I hope that McCabe-Eminger are better than Mara and Morris... I'll never forget that embarrassing goal against Ovechkin when they let him walk in on Henrik. Here's hoping that this year's less experienced defense plays much better than the defense did in '09.
