2012-13 Nhl Playoffs Discussion 2013-04-28 22:17:04 Reply

Now that tonight's Boston-Ottawa game is wrapped up, all first round playoff matchups for the 2012-13 season are set! We might have had a shortened season this year, but we're not short on some mouth-watering series in the quarterfinals.

Matchups are as follows:

Eastern Conference
1. Pittsburgh Penguins vs. 8. New York Islanders
2. Montreal Canadiens vs. 7. Ottawa Senators
3. Washington Capitals vs. 6. New York Rangers
4. Boston Bruins vs 5. Toronto Maple Leafs

Western Conference

1. Chicago Blackhawks vs. 8. Minnesota Wild
2. Anaheim Ducks vs. 7. Detroit Red Wings
3. Vancouver Canucks vs. 6. San Jose Sharks
4. St. Louis Blues vs. 5. Los Angeles Kings

The Blackhawks start off the season with a record 24-game point streak and finish with the Presidents' Trophy, Detroit rallies at the end of the season to secure their 22nd straight playoff berth, the Toronto Maple Leafs finally return to the playoff picture, and the Penguins' Sidney Crosby is once again dealing with injury trouble; among other storylines this season.

As for a Stanley Cup prediction, I see the Blackhawks and Capitals squaring off in the finals, with the Blackhawks taking home their second trophy in four years.

I know, I'm a little rascal, aren't I?

Good luck to all teams that have made it this far, may every game be hard-fought and entertaining, and most importantly of all, go Blackhawks!

Lets go Pens! I love me some Iggy!

Poor Leafs being paired up with Boston. Maybe Boston will continue being stuck in their slump.

Chicago Vs. Minnesota in 6
Detroit Vs. Anaheim In 5
San Jose Vs. Vancouver In 7
Los Angeles Vs. St. Louis In 6

EAST

New York Islanders Vs. Pittsburgh In 6
Ottawa Vs. Montreal In 5
New York Rangers Vs. Washington In 7
Toronto Vs. Boston In 7

I might be totally off, but these are my predictions.

I believe it's way too early to say who will lift the cup, but I'm confident it wont be either Chicago or Pittsburgh.

Don't care for the playoffs this year. So long as the Penguins, Rangers and Bruins get eliminated I'll be happy. I don't give a shit about the West, but I'll smile if the Blackhawks and Red Wings go. Though it would be fun to watch the Penguins get swept in the finals and fill buckets with Crosby's tears.

The best team didn't make the Playoffs...

Penguins vs BlackHawks, with the Penguins winning it in 6 is my guess.

We're just an hour away from the commencement of the 2012-13 playoffs! Three games are on slate for tonight: Blackhawks/Wild, Blues/Kings, and Ducks/Red Wings. Former two start in roughly an hour, while the Ducks and Red Wings start in a little over 3 hours.

My dog in this fight are the Rangers, but I think the Pens are the scariest team in there. The Red Wings and Kings are going to be trouble in the western conference.

Blackhawk fans always like to brag about how they're "the loudest fans in the NHL" yet one almost fluke goal shuts up the entire arena. What a joke.

Blackhawks pull level at 1 with a power play goal from Marian Hossa. St. Louis also leads over Los Angeles from a goal by Alexander Steen.

A lot of Blackcawks fans weren't existent until a few years back, when they won the cup.

I wouldn't pay attention to their opinion, or what they have to say.

Plus, how could they be louder than Montreal fans, when enough of them go out the city when the teams not home and cheer loud enough in the opponent's arena to be heard on T.V.?

The Kings score with just 32 seconds left in regulation to force overtime in St. Louis, while the Blackhawks and Wild are about to start overtime as well.

Meanwhile, Detroit and Anaheim have just started, so far scoreless.

It's called a "Live look in" do you not watch hockey on NBC ever?

The Wild are going to win! Were the Wild predicted to be this good? They're really pushing the BlackHawks hard.

I can't tell if I would be upset if the Wild win. I'm having a hard time deciding who I want to win this series.

Fuck LA though.

Chicago and St. Louis win almost simultaneously in OT. I'm happy with both outcomes!

Brian Bickel wins it in overtime for the Blackhawks who lead their series against the Wild 1-0!

Also St. Louis wins their first game over LA in dramatic fashion off a shorthanded goal by Steen, his second of the game, in overtime.

The first day of the Stanley Cup playoffs is in the books. The Blackhawks and Blues each take 1-0 series leads by winning in overtime, and Anaheim rides two power play goals to a 1-0 lead against Detroit.

You know, for having made similar topics in the past, you don't have to do this kind of updates every day... It's kinda creepy.

Still, appreciated, lol.
