I called it, the Penguins looked way to inexperienced against the veterans. Hate being right.

* (4) New Jersey > (5) NY Rangers in 7, Brodeur baby.

* WESTERN CONFERENCE
* (1) Detroit > (8) Nashville in 5, to deep and to good.
* (2) San Jose vs (7) Calgary in 5, with Marleau playing better they are the team to beat.
* (3) Minnesota < (6) Colorado in 6, Avs are playing good and I like there crop of forwards. Defence is iffy.
* (4) Anaheim > (5) Dallas in 4, Dallas slipped late and the Ducks always look good.
4 for 8...I wouldn't say right would be the word to describe that.

Had to do this to you, lol. I'm still a little upset over the Penguins not showing up to a superior Red Wings team tonight. However, Pavel Datsyuk remains one of the most underrated players to play the game. The guy always knows the perfect time to glide and perfect time to just explode. He wastes very little energy when he is not needed in the play, only to save it when it is most crucial. Whenever he has the puck, I am not comfortable as a Pens fan.

Random note: with Russia winning the latest gold medal, how dominate would they have been had players like Malkin, Datsyuk, or Gonchar been able to put on the skates?

the wings are surely an older team. Old enough to have to conserve their energy and not get in a brawl after the bullshit "no goal."

I'm blown away at how well Osgood has been playing. He's really just meant to play in a Wings jersey I guess.

Detroit really builds excellence through the draft and free agency. Since 2002, every team they lost to went on to the final.

Imagine how good the Canadians and the Swedes would've been if there players got to play? Haha.

Thanks for bringing back my old picks. I was really suprised about the Rangers and originally the Flyers and they changed my mind when I saw them knock off the two teams in the first two rounds.

The game was on another tv right beside the PPV so I could watch both until the game was over. The only good that came outta that was I was the first to alert everyone that Detorit had scored again by saying out loud; 'f*ck! they scored again!'

Monday I'll get to watch the whole game uninterrupted though and I can't wait.

I had a pretty shitty night watching it..Got to watch it on a 18 foot projection screen(pretty cool), but the weather was shitty and the dish kept going out. I missed the whole 3rd period(might have been a good thing). Oh well, can't wait for 7pm to roll around..

My prediction went to Sh!t...

2-0 Detroit already. Pens D looks like absolute crap. Giving all kinds of space in the neutral zone just like Philly did to them. Malkin needs to step it up...oh wait so does the rest of the f*&$in team. This series is looking to be short and sh*&%y.

Chris Osgood doesn't see anything. Detroit's D is stifling and their stars are playing like stars. Except Kronwall leaves his skates when he hits - hardly series-altering, but penalty-worthy nonetheless. PP is the only way the Pens can win because they look like garbage even strength.

Prepare for the most boring second and third periods. Yay New Jersey Devils hockey!

Yes sir on the second and the third is turning out just as suspected. Refs just decided this game on the goaltender interference call...wow this is just bad.

This is terrible, Pittsburgh isn't even putting up a fight. We might as well have the Oilers playing the Wings.

YES!!! I love it!!

Down 2-0 and haven't even scored yet.

Osgood is shutting them out and a guy named Kronwall from Sweden is roughing them up. Really, the Wings are a great team, an excellent team that play both ends of the ice better than anybody in the league.

You guys act like you are suprised. How many Red Wings games did you watch this season/playoffs, they've been doing this all year. Defence is way to strong and you don't need the best goalie when he only faces 20 shots a game, just a solid one.

I wish I made some bets.
