      Canadian teams are back!

    On the surface one would think the Toronto Maple Leafs don't stand a chance against the Capitals, but you'd be wrong.

    HEAD-TO-HEAD RECORD
    Washington: 2-1-0
    Toronto: 1-1-1

    I think this will go 6 games, although the CAPS will prevail.

      Not too psyched because just can't see Rangers going too far in the playoffs.

        I think the HABS will take this series.

        Yes, 'fraid so. Lundquist has been showing signs of age this year and along with injuries, has been way too inconsistent. You want a hot goalie coming into the playoffs. Not to mention the defense in front of him has been kinda porous at times.

        I agree with you about Lundquist and playoff hockey is all about goaltending...that's really what wins Stanley Cups. BTW..I've always been a big fan Hendrik!

      Obviously a bit bummed out about the 2-0 loss to the Rangers, but I'm not panicking just yet. Too many turnovers by the HABS, excellent goaltending by Lundquist and a solid defensive effort to help him out. HABS looked frustrated. Over 90 hits during this game....damn!

        Who knows? Maybe the King has something left in the gas tank and was saving it for the playoffs.

      Rangers-Habs down to best two of three.

        Great series so far! Almost had the tie with seconds remaining when Shea Weber dinged one off the post. The King was superb last night.

        Anytime you get Price and Lundquist at opposite ends of the rink it will be a good game!

          I haven't checked the performance stats of when they faced each other this year, and I suppose it doesn't matter since playoffs are an entirely different game. If play comes anywhere close to the Habs series then this should be awesome.......I have my doubts though.

        OILERS are up 2-0 versus the DUCKS. I'll be honest...never saw that coming! I guess this team is for real after all.

          I didn't either, but my son called it. He picked Pens vs Oilers in the final with the Pens winning, and the same two teams next year with the Oilers winning. He reminded me of the history with Oilers first two trips to the finals against the Islanders back in the early 1980s. McDavid is probably going to prove to be one the greatest players ever.

            CAPS outshoot the PENS by a significant margin, but hitting the post/crossbar something like 4 times didn't do them any favours. Still, PENS were dominant and Fleury was killer in between the pipes. Miracles do happen, but not this time. CAPS are done.

            RANGERS are in the same sinking ship. SENS Pageau gets 4 goals which allows them to come back from a 2-goal deficit in the third and take the game in double OT.

            Looks very much like a PENS-SENS matchup in the next round. PENS are going back to the Final.

              We'll see as the Rangers come home. But they were leading both games one and two and let them slip away. Game two was a gut wrenching loss.

                OILERS need to win at home next game. If not, they reduce their chances for a series win significantly. I can't see the DUCKS losing 2 more at home. McDavid continues to amaze though.

                  Though I saw my first minor league game in 1967, I've been living and breathing the sport since 1969. McDavid is one of the most exciting players to happen in hockey since I've been watching. I think he will end up being discussed in the same regard as Orr, Gretzky, and Lemieux, and over overshadow Crosby within a year or two. Only issue is the way the game is played these days, there isn't the chance he will change the way the game is played the way Orr, Gretzky, or Lemieux did.

                  Orr changed the fundamental way defensemen played, and Gretzky and Lemieux forced the rise of modern goaltending techniques. Not sure what the next big change will be.

                    Sidney Crosby has been diagnosed with another concussion...his 5th one.

                    Sidney - Please retire. Your health is so much more important.
