I really need to quit rooting for teams other than the Avalanche, since I seem to doom them all to early playoff exits. Come to think of it, maybe my support is what doomed the Avs, too. Damn.
I was originally rooting for Pittsburgh and Nashville, and they both lost in the first round. Then I picked the Canucks as one of my favorites. Now they're gone.
With all other series being up in the air at this point, I want to extend a preemptive apology to Ottawa, Buffalo and San Jose, who are all now going to lose because of me. Sorry guys. I meant well.
