I'll side with the father-in-law and cheer for the Blues. Which means I'm dooming them to a 4-2 first round exit.

I hope so hahahhaah.  I'm in 3 different hockey pools and took Minny to win it all (atleast go to the cup final).  So I'm jumping on the Minny bandwagon for the next two months.

friggin' Tiittsburg and the suddenly dangerous Cindy against Torts' crew outta be a interesting series...meanwhile the leafs blew their chance at ottawa so Boston gets to maybe win a series...I guess when all is and and done Toews and kane and the other bunch in Hawk-land win another cup

I *almost* picked Pittsburgh to lose. The loss of Letang scares the hell out of me--he holds that entire blue line together.

someone should start a lottery of when Torts will totally lose it...I for sure think he'd go ballistic if and when Cindy chops off one of Torts' players fingers

I'm watching Montreal-Rags in French.  They're in the entrée-acte seconde.   I think that means the tenor is coming out next.

All season I felt like Lundqvist was on a one man mission to sink my fantasy team (he half succeeded), and now that that's out of the way, he's playing lights out. THIS IS THE LUNDQVIST I DRAFTED DAMMIT!

I know none of you care about that. But the roundabout point is that he can steal this series and ruin any number of brackets 'round these parts.

Take solace in the fact that you didn't own Cory Schneider.

I picked NYR to go far last year and they burned me. This year I have MTL dropping them early. So they'll at least go to the ECF :P

Man McDavid and Draisaitl are electric together. Draisaitl mucking around on the boards holding on to the puck is such a great compliment to McDavid.

Game looking like good tight game 2-1 Oilers
Logan Couture
His bottom teeth are being held together with wires. The top teeth have a plastic bond coating that keeps them from moving or falling out. Peering inside his mouth when he talks is like peering into a collapsed mine being propped up by temporary timber.

Wow. I think Niederreiter just prevented himself from scoring by trying to guarantee he score. Talk about (bad) puck luck.

Blues win it. Joel Edmonson almost didn't even react to scoring the OT goal. Just stood there and grinned. Pretty cool.
