NHL Playoffs, The Second Round

Well there were only minor hiccups in the West for me that didn’t stop me from getting 4 for 4 on my picks. The East, however, is a different story. Who would have thought that going in to round 2 the highest seed remaining would be the number 4 seed? Who would have believed that all three division leaders were eliminated in the first round? That’s right, all that’s left in the East is 4, 6, 7, and 8 seeds. While Philadelphia winning their series didn’t shock me, I expected the other two division leaders to move on with flying colors. My Sabres failed me, not coming together and getting beaten down by a tenacious Boston team. Then, in an upset I am genuinely thrilled about, Team Ovechkin (the Washington Capitals) got taken down by the lowly Montreal Canadians, a team that wasn’t given a chance by anyone.

The regular season was a wild ride, especially the final weeks as several teams were battling for a few remaining playoff spots. The final team in the East came down to a single game on the last day of the regular season in which the Flyers managed to win the 7th seed in a shootout (ugh, stupid shootouts, but hey, that’s not what we’re here about today). So here we go, my picks for the 2010 race to the Stanley Cup. … More 2010 NHL Playoffs – The First Round

Gabriel was born on March 4th and since then life has pretty much been in chaos. It’s been the good kind of chaos though. … More Qualifying Life Event
