stanley cup playoffs.. best series...


dude...

the stanley cup playoffs are upon us...
although the match-ups in the east were set a few days ago, the west came down to the wire..

one match-up in the east, boston vs montréal, is an epic rivalry that goes way back.. two original six teams that have a score to settle, especially after the chara hit on pacioretti late in the season..
its gonna be epic, and brutal.. its the series to watch....

if sidney crosby returns to the penguins line-up for the first round, tampa bay is toast...

out here in the west, all three california teams are in, a first...
san jose will prolly destroy the slumping kings, although rumor has it that justin williams will return for at least part of the first round... the kings are gonna need to get everything they can out of their dismal power play, and jonathan quick will def have to stand on his head in goal for the kings to even stand a chance...
id like to see the kings and ducks hook up in the second round, but prolly not this season...

the defending stanley cup champion blackhawks will face their playoff nemesis vancouver canucks in the first round... a contest not to be missed...

so... whats your favorite series? best match up?
and why?

  1. I am embarrassed by how we (Blackhawks) got in the play offs. Pretty much says how the season went. The headline on the Minnesots Wilds web site says it all. "By the way Chicago, you're welcome" Sucks they fired their coach after a great win for them. Good luck Pitt and maybe we'll meet up in the finals.!
