The alternative statement is that the Bruins were not the Caps. Of course, historically speaking, the Caps are not the Caps.

Seriously?  I want the Caps to beat the Pens more than anybody but that was a bad hit and deserved a suspension.   Go Bolts!!!

With due respect to Art, I did not mention that peculiar predilection of the Rat because I did not want to denigrate the Broons that deeply. I can understand the thuggery of a Lucic, the brutishness o

It would be fantastic to see a Cup final between two opposite cities, PGH and LV for 3 reasons:

 

1. Fleury versus his best buddies, that would be a great story!

2. LV makes the Cup final in its 1st year - another great storyline!

3. Means the Pens are in it - a fantastic story!!!!!

 

GO PENS!!

GO BOLTS!!!

For the western based teams, the road to the Cup goes through Winnipeg. This team is big, fast and plays a heavy style of hockey...the ideal template for teams in years to come.

Listening to NHL radio, the guys were talking up the Jets too.  Looks like a great series, am personally rooting for the Jets as the underdogs.  2nd round already has two outstanding series with DC/PGH and this one:

I took a few moments to examine the Caps/Pens series. I think that the teams are a wash in the scoring dept. In Holtby, the Caps have a slight edge in goal...very slight! The Pens were never really challenged so far whereas the Caps came all the way back from a 2 game deficit...character forged by adversity, always a good feeling. The series will be a good one, and I believe that the Caps will prevail in what will be a long series, surely they can't be losing 3 years in a row to the same team, can they????

Check out the Steelers versus the Pats for prolonged misery.

Oh NOOOOOOOO! Ben, I agree, but we are talking about the Caps and Pens. Pens have won 9 of 10 series all time. Please dont jinx us. :o

Leafs  VS Broons.....................Rask will have to be MVP of the series if Boston escapes. Tor in 7

 

Pretty impressive picking so far Mr. Hong. I sure hope you get this final, first round call right as well!

My brother built a pyramid after game two of the Bruins/Leaf series . It s working so far. Rest in Peace Red.

Malkin and Hagelin ruled out for Game 1 in DC.  Not good news for Pens fans.

Not impressive with the call on the Bruins vs Leafs. Bos was ready to be taken but, sigh, the Leafs screwed the pooch again. Both tenders were dogshit, and the vaunted Leaf rookies were largely AWOL.

With only a cursory glance at the match-ups, here are my picks for the second round:

Tampa, Caps (I hate dominance of any kind!), Sharks, Jets.
