NHL Playoffs Anyone?

Wow...first few games are exciting.

Boston v Montreal! They hung on so well.

I got a bit bored on the beat-up by my home town homeboys, the Wings.

It's going to be more fun when my landlord finally gets our cable back!

I'm a life long Sabres fan, so this is tough. I do love the NHL though, no matter who is playing. Rangers looked pretty good the other night. I didn't catch any game last night though.

Troylet? As in somewhere near RPI?

I grew up in Buffalo and I'm missing my Sabres as well. I lived in Detroit for 6 years though and I like them too. They are getting to be the Yankees of the NHL though. I like them, sure, but give someone else a chance.

well, the Red wings aren't that strong, it's not like they've won the most playoffs
and recently, it's only last year they've made it to the finals and won it.

Yeah for sure. We've won 11, I think? But still, it's spaced out by a few years, usually. They're great to watch though. Good fundamentals like passing and handling. They're not the biggest on hits and what not, but meh. There is something pretty fun about being in Hockey Town during the playoffs and then the finals...yowza it's nuts!

I'm really surprised how well Montreal held up last night considering they were playing the top-seed. I think if they get a bit of confidence, and LaRoque sticks up to Chara more (wouldn't that be a fight!) they might have a chance! But hey, it's lofty.
