How 'Bout Them (Big) Apples?

With the exception of the strangely successful New York Rangers, every Eastern Conference playoff series is now tied. The Islanders somehow managed to beat the Sabres (and don't tell me DiPietro is suddenly earning his 15-year contract), Tampa Bay remembered that they used to score a lot of goals and barely beat the Devils and Pittsburgh lived up to the hype and squeaked by a loaded Ottawa offense. Sidney Crosby once again rubbed everyone's face in the fact that he's still too young to buy beer, but can beat you with a one-timer on the edge of the crease with his freakin' eyes closed.

Every game was decided by just one goal.

Yep, looks like the playoffs to us. Just because we're Avalanche fans doesn't mean we've forgotten what those are like. Yet.
