Games Two

Well, all of the first games of the first round of the NHL playoffs are over, and for the most part the strongest, predicted-to-win teams came out on top. The Senators' complete domination of the Penguins was a bit of a surprise, and hopefully the youngsters known as Sid's Kids™ come out swinging in the second game. It would be a shame for them to be swept. Even so, we haven's seen the last of them in the playoffs. They have at least a couple of Cups to win before their contracts run out and Pittsburgh goes broke trying to keep them all.

The two most exciting series in the West will definitely be the Sharks-Predators and the Stars-Canucks. Both matchups are nearly even in team skill levels, with great goaltending to be had all around. We're rooting for the Preds and the Bad Luck 'Nucks, but whoever wins will deserve it. It won't be easy.

And thank Hockey Jesus that the Flames will cave completely to the Dead Wings. Just remember, Wingers, to lose badly in the second round. Don't forget.
