I was hoping to hell that the Pens would get NJ first round. There's some mental-block they've had recently with Philly and the Caps. They've done well against NJ, but the goddamned Canes lost over the weekend and fucked that all up.

Danny B. has worked some miracle with those guys, so hopefully they keep at it and have no injuries. Of all the teams to go against, this was the matchup I was fearing. I hope they get it this year, but my reality meter barely lifts off the peg when I think about it. Either way you cut it, one can expect the Battle of Pennsylvania is going to be naaaaaasty. I predict this one will have record penalty minutes for the playoffs.

Endgame Guess: Broonz over Sharks in six.

Pitt-Philly, bos-habs is gonna be the hockey to watch in the first round. Can't wait! Detroit and Colombus is going to be an interesting one, too.
BTW, it's gonna be boston and philly advancing, both in 6

Maybe then Calgary's front office will do the right thing and axe Iron Mike.
The season wasn't quite long enough for the Flames to completely miss the playoffs.

I'm a Pens fan.
My good friend is a Flyers fan.
Here's the email he sent me yesterday.
I couldn't agree more...

"Regardless of what any Philadelphia fan says, this is NOT a series that they will be looking forward to.
Pittsburgh is hot, happy, and they KNOW they can beat the Flyers.
Home ice is irrelevant for Philly if they get it. Pittsburgh can win there. It may be far more difficult to take a game in Pittsburgh for the Flyers.

Keys for Philly:
1. Score first.
2. Make Pittsburgh chase the puck offensively rather than dangle into the zone.
3. Win the 3rd and 4th line matchups.
4. Outshoot PGH.
5. Biron has to at least equal Fleury, but probably has to be better.
6. Play with and edge and finish checks cleanly without penalties.
7. Get superstar production from Danny Briere.
8. Hope Timmonen is the best defenseman on the either team.
9. Stay 5 on 5.
10. Pray.

The Flyers are not exactly playing their most consistent hockey of the season. Pittsburgh is. Although this is a better Flyer team than last season (more depth offensively, far more mobility on the defense, future star, Claude Giroux, and a healthy Simon Gagne), it still lacks the high-end skill of Malkin, Crosby, Fleury.
I'm predicting PGH in 6. For Philadelphia to take the next step, they need a superstar level goalie and at least one
more star defenseman."
