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 […]

Blackhawks vs Predators

Many people are picking the Blackhawks to make the Stanley Cup Finals. Given the fact they’ve created a dynasty over the last seven seasons, as well as holding the first seed in the Central, it is understandable. They came from nine points back to jump the Wild into the first spot and seemed unbeatable in […]

Capitals vs Maple Leafs.

Toronto is making their second playoff appearance in 13 seasons. Unfortunately, by losing the final game of the regular season, they face the Washington Capitals as opposed to their arch rival Ottawa Senators. Washington has won their second straight President’s Trophy, and their third in seven seasons. The driving force for the Leafs this season […]
