Penguins vs Senators

The Penguins took the Capitals to seven games and sent them home in the second round once again. They definitely look like Stanley Cup favorites. Ottawa has made it further than expected. They were a bit lucky to survive past the second round against New York. In game 2, they were down two goals with […]

Predators vs Ducks

The Predators have been a great story in these playoffs. Before the postseason started, I didn’t expect a Conference Finals appearance, although I did predict them to beat the Blues. While I also predicted the upset against the Blackhawks in round one, no one could’ve predicted a sweep. The Ducks finally rose above their game […]

Penguins vs Capitals

Here we are in round two, a dreaded point in almost every Caps season since 1998. They are facing the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins, who look very capable of repeating, something that hasn’t been done since the last time the Capitals did see the Conference Finals. It will again be tough for the […]

Rangers vs Senators

The Rangers disposed of the Canadiens in six games in a series that lived up to my expectations. It was a duel of the goaltenders Henrik Lundqvist and Carey Price. While Price was great, Lundqvist was even better. I had predicted Boston to win the series against Ottawa, but the Senators proved me wrong, defeating […]

Ducks vs Oilers

The Ducks, like the Predators, swept their opponent, the Calgary Flames. The Flames put up a fight, but could not close out any of the games, including a three goal lead they had in game 3. The Oilers faced a struggling Sharks squad, with Couture playing with all I can describe as a broken mouth, […]

Predators vs Blues

I predicted Nashville to beat the Blackhawks, but I don’t think anyone could’ve predicted the way they dispatched Chicago. Sweeping them, they only allowed 3 goals the entire series, and “Chelsea  Dagger” did not play once. Minnesota’s season came to a disappointing end, losing in five games to the Blues. Adding insult to injury, Eric […]

Ducks vs Flames

There were questions coming into the season about the Ducks with Randy Carlyle as the new head coach. Nobody expected another division title. At the beginning of the season, it sure looked like that was the case. They kept climbing the standings, however, and, once again, finished first in the Pacific. Calgary reached their expectations […]
