Didn't we have an NHL thread? Did these crappy new baords eat it or somehting?
Anyway - Rangers off to a good start in DC last night. i don't have a good feeling about this series and I think in a critical game Ovechkin will be the difference, but I think NY ahs a shot. Although Carolina is the tredny pick, i like the Devils to crush them. Boston should make short work of the reeling, injured Canadiens and i am HOPING Philly can beat Pittsburgh and their whiny, cheap shot team - but based on what i heard about last night, i am not feeling good about this.
In the west, i like Detroit to easily beat the Blue Jackets. They just have too much firepwoer and depth.
I liek teh Sharks over teh Ducks - but I think that could be a long and physical series for a 1-8 matchup.
i think the Canucks will get through, behind Luongo and a decent power play. The Blues got really hto down teh stretch - and its good to see them back in the playoffs, but I just think Vancouver is too good for them.
I will go with Calgary over Chciago, though the Hawks are clearly on teh rise. i liek to pick at least one canadian team to root for and Iginla is among my afvorite players in the league. Thsi should be a fun series and I like both team s- but i think Clgary will get through to teh next round.
