NHL Playoff thread.


BoneDaddyKool

The playoffs start in just minutes. I'm a huge hockey fan, and a huge Penguins fan. Naturally, I'll be pulling hard for them. I would like to see if any of you are going to follow the playoffs, and what some predictions of yours. Despite being a Pens fan, I don't think they will take the Cup.

 

I predict It will be Montreal over San Jose in 6.

 

I'd love to hear any thoughts. GO PENS!

San Jose over Pittsburgh in 5.

 

I've only seen a few games this year and don't know a whole lot, but I've liked the Sharks the last few years for some reason. I used to hate Detroit (who didn't though aside from Wings fans?) so I guess I still kind of hate them.

Don't really have a favorite team any more, just a fan of the sport and hope for exciting games. I'll be flipping during Brewers commercials tonight.

 

I think one of the biggest components to success is veteran goaltending in the playoffs. That being said, it's hard to go against the likes of Brodeur and Hasek. We shall see.

San Jose over Montreal in 6 games.

 

Of course go Nashville but they're the 8th seed and they aren't getting past Detroit so after that go Wild and if they get knocked out go Joe Pavelski and San Jose!

Hartford over Winnipeg in 5

So, Carolina over Phoenix then? No love for Quebec?http://forum.brewerfan.net/images/smilies/smile.gif

Go Preds and Pens!

Detroit is going to clean the ice with the Preds. http://forum.brewerfan.net/images/smilies/smile.gif

The Blues are going straight to the cu.... Wait, they collapsed in the second half of the season and didn't get near the playoffs, awesome.

The Blues might not be in it, but at least we get a chance to watch uberprospect TJ Oshie in the Frozen Four. He will fit in nicely with the notes. I don't think the Habs will do it, Price is just too young. I think he will feel the pressure at some point. I'm not pulling for a team at this point, just following players I enjoy. Hoping that Gaborik and Ovechkin have good runs.

After watching plenty of hockey at many venues I can safely say there isn't a better, louder, more energetic crowd than the fans at the Xcel Energy Center. This crowd is rocking after Koivu gave them the lead.

A Big win for the Pens after they almost blew a 3 goal lead. Got to see the end of the Caps-Flyers game before the gf put the ki-bosh on sports, Olvetchkin is one exciting player to watch. The NHL playoffs really are outstanding, much more entertaining than the NBA.

 

3 assits for Crosby tonight, 3 for Malkin.... GO PENS!!!!!!

XCel just gets crazy during Wild games and for some reason the Twins homer hanky has made the leap to the hockey arena. Must be a Minnesota thing.

 

Fantastic game last night, especially 3rd period and overtime. I'm not a hardcore hockey fan but I do enjoy watching the playoffs.

That was a very entertaining finish indeed, luke.

Wings up 2-0 makes me happy. Too bad i know they are just gonna lose in the conference championship round anyways.

 

Not me, I didn't expect Nashville to win, but they had Detroit on the ropes for a while, but they just could not get it together. They took more penalties on the power play which is just pathetic and can't happen, and Dumont kept turning the puck over, Arnott couldn't get a shot off, and it doesn't help that the goaltending sucks...
