Yes! The Capitals actually win a game 7 for once, beating Boston in overtime {no surprise there.} on their home ice. I knew that Boston's inconsistent play will catch up to them sometime, and it just so happen it was the 1st round against a team that would usually choke in past Game 7s.

Fuck the Bruins.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

I'm quite happy with the Capitals victory. They played very well in 3rd period and overtime :)

Fuck the Bruins.

HAHAHA fuckin' Ward! Seeing the Bruins out makes me the happiest hockey fan in the world. Even if the Caps don't make a single win next round, this is enough (though winning is good too :3). I just hope NY doesn't win, another game against an overly aggressive team (Flyers, of course) is going to make my hair fall out.

Here's to an absence of the Bruins!

I don't think a Flyers v. Rangers game is possible at this point, with the way things worked out.

Only in the conference finals - Right now, it could be as follows:

IF NYR Wins:

NYR - WSH
FLA / NJD - PHI (Philly at Florida, or New Jersey at Philly)

If OTT Wins:

FLA - OTT
PHI - WSH

PHI - OTT
NJD - WSH

Of course, we could just wait it out and see where we stand on Thursday / Friday

Monday

NYR 3-2 OTT (Series tied 3-3)

New York had to dig deep here, but got a good response after Chris Neil tipped a Sergei Gonchar slp shot past Lundqvist in the 1st. Goals from Derek Steppan, Brad Richards and Chris Kreider gave the Rangers a 3-1 lead, heading into the 3rd and only a Jason Spezza goal, kicked home inside the crease could pull Ottawa close in the dying seconds of the contest, much the the chagrin of John Tortarella and Henrik Lundqvist, who remonstrated with the officials.

Still, with everything said and done, the Zamboni will resurface the ice at Maddison Square Garden and the puck will drop tonight for game 7. Everything's on the line, who will skate off the ice heading into the second round? I have no idea, but it will be fun finding out.

Prediction : I've got a 50:50 chance of getting a point here...

PHX 4-0 CHI (PHX wins Series 4-2)

No overtime, no problem. After 5 straight games of heading into the extra period, Phoenix and Chicago set aside their differences and Mike Smith dominated, with some frankly ridiculous saves, to make a 39 save shutout, the first of his career.

Antoine Vermette led the teams in scoring for the series, with 4 goals and an assist, to double his goal tally for his career. The Coyotes have proven that they can outlast a quality team, with a good head coach. Even after being outshot 16-2 in the first, they came back and scored first, because of Smith and left with their fate in the second round, when Nashville come to town.

Prediction : PHX in 7. One point

ROUND 2, START!

Western:

8. LOS ANGELES KINGS

VS

2. SAINT-LOUIS BLUES

-

4. NASHVILLE PREDATORS

VS

3. PHOENIX COYOTES

-

Eastern:

7. WASHINGTON CAPITALS

VS

NEW-YORK RANGERS

-

6. NEW-JERSEY DEVILS

VS

5. PHILADELPHIA FLYERS

Cast your predictions.

Not the quarter finals I expected, but it'll have to do. I feel sorry for Ottawa. They had a great season, they deserved to pass to the second round. Hopefully we see a St. Louis / Nashville semi-final in the west. I have no doubt LA and Phoenix will get destroyed. I think it's going to be a NYR / Philly semi-final. It took NJ 7 games to get rid of the Panthers... I mean come on. And Ovechkin and co have been SUCKING MAJOR PENIS against Boston. This was by far the most boring matchup of the year. Glad it's over with.

3 right in the east, 2 in the west, no predictions of scorelines correct. That gives me 5 points, from a possible 16, so far. 31.25%, a decent batting average, if I were playing baseball. But we're not.

Coop's Round 2 Predictions:

New York Rangers over Washington Capitals in 6
Philly Flyers over New Jersey Devils in 5
Saint Louis Blues over Los Angeles Kings in 6
Nashville Predators over Phoenix Coyotes in 7

Don't forget the Boston sports fans, some of them went to Twitter to post racist tweets against Joel Ward, who scored the GW goal in overtime. I may be a free speech advocate, {even though I obviously don't condone this.} but this is just rather sad at best, and deplorable at worst. Not to mention the fact that they love to hop on the bandwagon when their teams are winning, {Red Sox and Patriots in recent years} and trash them when they lose.

Moving on, here are my predictions for the Conference Semi-finals.

Western Conference:

2. St. Louis Blues vs. 8. Los Angeles Kings: Going with the Blues in 5. I can't really see the Kings being a Stanley Cup contender this year, even when they whipped Vancouver the way they did. The Blues on the other hand, I feel like they're on the cusp of being a championship contender now and in the future.

3. Phoenix Coyotes vs. 4. Nashville Predators: Predators in 6. Nashville has an excellent defense and goalie, and I can't see the Coyotes score enough goals to make a difference.

Eastern Conference:

1. New York Rangers vs. 7. Washington Capitals: I've got to go with the Rangers in 6. The Capitals are playing with house money at this point after beating Boston, but I don't think they have enough to take down King Henrik.

5. Philadelphia Flyers vs. 6. New Jersey Devils: I feel like this series will go the full 7, and I'm going with the Flyers to win the series. They have to have a lot of confindence after beating the piss out of the Pens.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

Game 1 of Flyers vs Devils and already it's looking intense. The Flyers are going to play more aggressively here if they hope to have a chance to win this one.

3-3 and now into overtime. Giroux keeps the points coming, but only one so far tonight. Can he score a second and give the Flyers the lead? I don't think he will, Marty is starting to look strong.

If you want the Devils to choke, big up their stars, so Kovalchuk will score the game winner.

Briere had a goal disallowed for kicking it in soccer style but he ends up scoring the winner in OT anyways.

Going into the first round against the Penguins a lot of people had the Flyers written off, I think the Pens were looking past them too. That probably contributed to their defeat. Now people are looking at the Flyers like a possible dark horse.

The Penguins are the Flyers fiercest rivals today, but historically, aside from Lemieux's heyday, the Flyers have been great against the Penguins. But memories of days long passed remind me that we have another rival in the playoffs, and we get them next.

All throughout my youth, the 90's, the Devils would routinely humiliate the Flyers in post season play. They even took out the "Legion of Doom". Granted, in the 21st century the Flyers have seemingly broken the curse, but I've got a bad feeling about this series all the same.
