the days between season and playoffs always seem so long. I have been looking forward to this years playoffs for the last two months. I used to make up pools but got tired of doing it. I kinda miss it.
It seems the TV people may agree with that assessment. Of course every Leafs - Bruins game will be on CBC up here - but they've scheduled Game 2 for 8:00PM prime time Saturday night on both CBC and NBC in the States. It is very rare for a Canadian team to be on NBC in prime time - especially in an early round.
Lightning vs. Devils- not an easy series for Tampa, but they win in 7
Bruins vs. Leafs- Bruins are battle tested... they win in 5
Caps vs. Jackets- might the hardest one to predict... Caps in 6
Pens vs. Flyers- another 7 gamer, Pittsburgh wins
Golden Knights vs. Kings- Knights crap out.. Kings in 6
Ducks vs. Sharks San Jose in 6
Nashville vs. Colorado Preds in 7
Jets vs. Wild a good rivalry series, Jets in 5
Anyone else catch showtime in Las Vegas for the hockey game? After the Jets win!
And we get Chris Cuthbert on the call on NBCSN!
I would think you probably did not catch it if you are on the East Coast, but damn I feel right at home watching this! No NHL game has ever started out like anything like this!
I was not optimistic about a pro team being in Las Vegas given all the other stuff to do on The Strip and elsewhere, but the NHL sure defied the naysayers and no wonder the NFL followed. The NFL can thank the NHL for initiating the buzz too.
