I hope somebody else is digging the NHL Playoffs as much as I am! Its the most competitive its been in a long time, maybe ever. In the East, Boston and Montreal are bashing each other to pieces in their traditional style though the outcome isn't really in doubt, the Capitals have a raw rookie in net who is going to help carry them past the pathetic Rangers to the next round, Carolina came out of nowhere and is giving the Devils a lot of trouble and of course, Pittsburgh and Philly are engaged in the Battle of Pennsylvania. In the West, Anaheim came from a long way back to qualify 8th and they are giving the Sharks all they can handle, Columbus made the playoffs for the first time ever and had the misfortune to match up against the mighty Red Wings, Calgary is having a lot of trouble with a rejuvenated Chicago team led by a 20 year old Captain who looks like the second coming of Bryan Trottier, the Blues came all the way back from 13th place in January to finish 6th only to go down in 4 straight to a Canucks team led by the best story of the season, Alex Burrows, a career ECHL/ ball hockey player who scored 2 goals last night including the overtime winner. Game on fellas!
