Rangers over Red Wings

id like to pick the Penguins for sure, but firstly i feel similar to Allen that the Flyers will at least injure them badly and secondly if i pick them it would be a jinx

that said, GO PENGUINS

ps: anyone see that cheap shot that the dude laid on Crosby? cross check from behind - thats a whiplash move on a guy with a neck injury history that had to sit out like a whole season for it. i hope he gets suspended or at least has his knee broken in by one of the Penguins goons. Flyers are goon crap eater fucks!

It was Brayden Schenn, and it was a bit of payback for Crosby pitchforking someone earlier in the game. And he's not getting a suspension.

Looks like I was wrong about the Caps barely squeaking in. Still don't think they're gonna do well against the Rangers.

Still might not be playing the Rangers. A win with a Florida regulation loss and they win the division and play NJ in the 1st round. A win with a Ottawa regulation loss and they finish 7th and play Boston.

3-1-0 against Boston
1-1-2 against NJ
1-2-0 against NYR (plus game tonight)

I'd say 40% chance we win @NYR tonight. 10% chance Florida loses in regulation at home against Carolina. And 25% chance Ottawa loses in regulation @NJ. So most likely play the Rangers, but not a done deal.

Interesting that the Caps are actually 10-6-1 against the top 4 seeds in the East right now.

Edit: Senators blow their game, so a W would put Caps into the 7th spot assuming Florida gets at least a point tonight.

The stage is set. Watched the last goal of the regular season during my red-eye from California. Sends San Jose to St. Louis and LA to Vancouver. That will be an interesting series in my opinion, with one of the more underappreciated goaltenders going against one of the more overrated in my opinion (Quick vs. Luongo)

Your format is off with your picks because in the NHL they re-seed after each round. So the highest seed always plays the lowest remaining seed in each round.
