Yes that’s right its playoff update time. For those of you who participated in the 2nd round playoff pick-em’ pay close attention because points are on the line. Okay, lets dive in.
Boston(1) vs. Carolina(6): After last night’s convincing 4-1 victory the Carolina Hurricanes have a 3-1 series lead over the top-of-the-East Boston Bruins. Staal, no not Marc, has been all over the ice with four goals and one assist in the four games. But the real story has been Jussi Jokinen who has three game winning goals this playoffs, and two this series. Game five is in Boston with the Bruins on the brink of elimination. Be sure to check out Stanley Cup of Chowder for Bruin news and Canes Country for Hurricane news.
Washington(2) vs. Pittsburgh(4): After storming out to a 2-0 series lead Washington has dropped their last two, and this series is now tied. Both Ovechkin and Crosby have been playing their hearts out to try and show up the other. Versus announcers, by the way, are having trouble announcing the games because they don’t know which side to hype up like is the next coming of Jesus. Regardless this series has been unbelievable and you should watch it if you can. Head on over to Pensburgh for more Penguin info and Japers Rink for more Capital info.
Detroit(2) vs. Anaheim(8): After Anaheim’s stunning destruction of the Sharks it was widely considered that they would once again be swept by the Wings. But the series is tied 2-2 and at one point the Ducks were leading. Ryan Getzlaf is playing like a man possessed with 3 goals and 13 assists for 16 points in 10 playoff games. And yes, that’s good enough for most points in the playoffs. It should be interesting to see how this one plays out the rest of the way. Game five is in Detroit though and it is a biggie. Mosey on over to Winging it in Motown for more Wing information and Battle of California for more Duck information.
Vancouver(3) vs. Chicago(4): This is by far the best series of the playoffs. It has been back and forth, its currently tied 2-2, and it has been exciting. Chicago is my favorite team in the playoffs right now and I hope they go all the way. Sundin, who I hope never sees a cup, has one goal and four assists in his 6 playoff games. This series has a lot of hockey left to play so it should start getting even better soon. Look into Nucks misconduct for more Vancouver information and Second City Hockey for more Chicago information.
