Wait, they reseed? I thought it was just a normal playoff. I just checked Wiki, you're right, let me fix my picks. Thanks!

Not sure the Pens can get by the Flyers. I think if they do they win it all.

I think they'll get by the Flyers, but the Flyers will decimate them in the process. That's going to be a war of attrition.

also, after watching that last game between Flyers and Pens, i think that the Pens might come out of it ok depending on the refereeing in the playoffs

if they are gonna give 10-minute misconduct penalties for cross-checking from behind, then the Flyers brutish tactics may not work at all and they will have to tone it down

that said, once the Pens get to 3 wins i think the Flyers will probably try to go after the stars, including clear league MVP and 50-goal scorer, Geno Malkin



nice recap: http://thepensnation.com/tpn/?p=3223

FWIW, These were my predictions for the full playoffs:
WEST:
LAK > VAN 7 games
PHO > CHI 6 games
DET > NSH 7 games
STL > SAN 6 games

STL > LAK 5 games
DET > PHO 6 games

DET > STL 6 games
__________________
EAST:
NYR > OTT 6 games
WAS > BOS 7 games
PHI > PIT 5 games (just b/c I feel like this will be one of those overhyped duds)
FLA > NJD 7 games

WAS > NYR 7 games (gotta go with Caps if I've got 'em losing anyway)
PHI > FLA 6 games

PHI > WAS 6 games

Flyers and Preds with a few lucky breaks to give them the games last night...we'll see if their luck continues. too many penalties in the Preds and Wings...let them play 5-on-5...

Didn't get a chance to see any of the Kings game.

Considering they don't even give 2-minutes for cross-checks to the neck in the playoffs...your gameplan may be flawed.

Kunitz did get fined $2500 for this though so it's cool I guess.

Not as sweet as a Caps win, but still makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
