The hard part are Nashville vs detroit and pitt vs phily. Its like the conference final in the first round.

So glad Nashville and Detroit are playing each other to knock one or the other out..

Having lived in St. Loser and experienced the pains of a team that never made it past the 2nd round since the NHL merger, I am rooting for this very young inexperienced team to go as far as they can--


Duke April 14 2012 11:47 PM EDT

St louis have a good reputation across the NHL as a good organization, but they lack the money of big hockey market or the fame of large metropolis like LA or NYC.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] April 15 2012 2:25 AM EDT

Great game of hockey with the Blues tonight! And I am sad to see Chicago won.. Sending it into OT with 5 seconds left...

But Ottawa won!

Josh [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 15 2012 12:28 PM EDT

I was ecstatic to see the Hawks win. It's too bad they did not win game 1 in similar fashion.

Duke April 16 2012 10:11 AM EDT

The way thing goes a lots of us will get most of our prediction wrong. Pitts/van are almost out of the playoff. Should have stick with my original idea before the season start.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] April 16 2012 2:55 PM EDT

Glad to see the two Sharks cheap shots went unnoticed by Shanahan..

Duke April 18 2012 9:13 AM EDT

Its a mess so far in the playoff, its hit to injure. Pitts vs phily is out of control. They are waiting for 1 to break is neck and die on the ice. Hossa left for the hospital, after a later hit straight to the head.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] April 18 2012 11:44 AM EDT

Instead of suspensions for 1-3 games, they should suspend the enforcer of the hit for as long as the victim is out of commission. I hate to say it because I'm afraid a Blues player might accidentally injure somemone and get suspended for it if this were the rules.

But seriously, the hit on Macdonald in game 2, Galiardi left his feet, and that's all Banahan has been talking about was guys leaving their feet to make a hit to the head. And it makes me mad about Galiardi not even being fined a little bit, because Macdonald was out for concussion earlier this year, good thing that didnt sprout up again..

Josh [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 24 2012 12:36 AM EDT

Well, I don't see how I can possibly win anymore. I had an awful year picking.

dj1914 April 24 2012 8:17 AM EDT

Don't feel bad. There is a pretty good chance I will only get 1 pick correct in the first round!!!

Duke April 30 2012 4:40 PM EDT

Here is standing

Duke 4/8 +4
Josh 3/8 +3
AK 3/8 +3
