Keeping this quick because that's just how it has to be right now. Round one found here. I'll have the standings when I get around to it in the next couple days. Sorry for the delay folks.
Get your predictions in by Thursday at 6:00 PM. On a slightly related note, Carolina's win last night was insane.
VAN 3 CHI 4: This one's strictly a toss up, but the Hawks are the sexy pick and I'm all kinds of deprived right now. Whatever the hell that means.
DET 4 ANA 2: Detroit's power play is from the depths of hell. On a related note, I'm in the Red Wings corner for this one. F Detroit blah blah blah, they didn't knock us out of the playoffs. If you're pulling for the Ducks I don't even know what to say.
BOS 4 CAR 2: Carolina is hot, but I just don't see it happening. That's such a joke snippet of analysis. Watching this round of playoffs is going to be so brutal.
WSH 2 PIT 4: I really like Jordan Staal and the Pens are a solid team. NBC is probably making out with themselves over the ratings this is going to get.
Scratch that. Go jump off a goddamn cliff, Heartbreak.
