The NHL playoffs are happening.I’m into the leafs/Lighting series. Sorry that the Blackhawks and Red Wings are no longer playing.
Anybody following the playoffs?

Pulling for the Lightening and Preds. Preds have a tough row to hoe after losing in OT yesterday to go down 2-0.

Pens/Rangers series will probably go 7. Two teams that are pretty even


"First down inside the 10. A score here likely puts us in the Super Bowl. Cooper is far to the left as Njoku settles into the slot. DPJ is flanked out wide to the right. Chubb and Hunt are split in the backfield as Watson takes the snap ... Here we go."

Yeah, the Preds are forced to using a back up goalie. It's like trying to use a back up QB in the NFL during the playoffs. Sadly I don't believe it will end well.


Intoducing for The Cleveland Browns, Quarterback Deshawn "The Predator" Watson. He will also be the one to choose your next head coach.

I’ve been watching a lot of the Oilers/Kings series. The Kings are having a tough time matching Edmonton’s speed.

And while I certainly don’t count on anything for certain in the playoffs (especially with the Leafs and especially against the two-time defending champs), even in the game they lost against TB, Toronto has been the better team every game. The Leafs are noticeably faster and get to pucks quicker.

Pens/Rangers will be a dogfight. That triple OT game was great stuff.

My Blues are in for an uphill fight with all the injuries on D. Even healthy, they would have a tough time. Minnesota is a very good team.

Pulling for the Leafs though I haven't seen much of the NHL this year. Their fans deserve a cup. Since the Wings have been so hard to watch as of late, I'm following our local ECHL team (Toledo Walleye) in the playoffs. Went to the last 2 games. There's nothing like a raucous playoff crowd in a small arena. They've got home ice advantage throughout, so I'll hit a few more games. Now that the Wings are finally out of salary cap hell, hopefully Yzerman can put together a quality team with a new coach. Seems like the last 4-5yrs, every time they picked up some players I liked, they got rid of them. (Tatar, Anthenesiu, Mantha, etc).

I don't think it's the same. Goalies can get red-hot for playoffs or even a season before they fall back to Earth.


There is no level of sucking we haven't seen; in fact, I'm pretty sure we hold the patents on a few levels of sucking NOBODY had seen until the past few years.

But that wasn't the case here. It was a back up. Same as going into the NFL playoffs with a back up QB.

Bolts/Leafs going to game 7. Too many costly mistakes that Toronto keeps cashing in on but barely held on to force game 7.

There you go. It will be 3 years in August since I quit drinking, but when I did I had a rule that I had to have an odd number of drinks, and that number was never 1
