That is pretty awesome.
I've got 19 points through 2 rounds so far.
Nice to be in second place so far!
This is scored like golf, right?
I know this is kind of late but Colorado is out :'(
I know they weren't gonna win but after being up 2-1 they had a chance. Even though they got dominated anderson kept them alive. Game 3 was such a fluke boyle shot it off O'reilley's stick and in.
Anyways I think San Jose can beat Chicago and they will face Montreal. It will be the year of the Shark.
Flyers just won game 7, 4-3. A historic win cause they are only the 3rd team to ever go down 0-3 in a series and come back to win it. Odd, cause that's how they won this game as well, went down 0-3 goals, before scoring 4 unanswered ones of their own.
So here are the match ups and my predictions for the finals:
Eastern Final: Montreal vs Philadelphia in 7 games
Western Final: San Jose vs Chicago in 6 games
I also didn't get any more points for saying Boston would win in 5 in our pool. But I just noticed, I'm still in 2nd place, cause none of the people who got it right had enough points to catch me.
Here's the really interesting fact, if Montreal and Chicago advance to the Stanley Cup Series, it'll be an Original 6 Match-up for the Cup.
Arrrgh Flyers. Here's a team that just achieved something almost as big as what Montreal has been doing. Why must it happen now. We get the team that's "on fire" as opposed to the team that would have "barely avoided humiliation". Screw this.
Ugh, one out of four this round. Ah, well, at least I was right about the one that mattered.
For next round
(8) Montreal 4 vs (7) Philadelphia 2
(2) Chicago 4 vs (1) San Jose 3
Habs in 6
Sharks in 5
Montreal over Philadelphia in 6
San Jose over Chicago in 6
And now, my opinion of Boston's playoffs
Stupid Boston. I hate the Flyers. NOW I'M ACTUALLY CHEERING FOR THE CANADIENS TO MAKE THE FINALS.
(7)Philadelphia 2 vs. (8)Montreal 4
(1)San Jose 2 vs. (2)Chicago 4
And here are the updated standings
Philadelphia in 6
Chicago in 7
Philadelphia in 6
Chicago in 6
What a massive choke in Boston.
Canadians in 5.
Blackhawks in 7.
Haven't seen anyone choke like that since.. eh.. I won't even say it.
That was the curse of Don Cherry at work, I believe.
I really hope Chicago wins in the West, for the Habs' sake of course, hehe. Well, I think we'd rather lose to Chicago.
Montreal in 6
San Jose in 7
I too would prefer Chicago tough...
I already posted mine up above, but I'll post them again.
Montreal in 6, and San Jose in 6.
Betting against Montreal has worked (for the Habs) so far, so I'll keep it up.
Philly in 6, Sharks in 7
