How unsurprising the Capitals lose game 1 to the Penguins.

I'm calling it Vegas vs PIttsburgh in the finals. Vegas wins the stanley cup finals in a game 7 over Pittsburgh with Fleury shutting them out & gets the Conne Smythe trophy.

3. Montreal Canadiens (from No. 4) 71 points 9.5% 28.8%

11. New York Islanders 80 points 3.5% 11.4%
12. New York Islanders (via Flames) 84 points 2.5% 8.2%
13. Dallas Stars 92 points 2.0% 6.6%
14. Philadelphia Flyers (via Blues) 94 points 1.5% 5.0%
15. Florida Panthers 96 points 1.0% 3.3%
 
Big jump for Carolina.  Pretty much they can take the best offensive talent in the draft now.  It'll be funny when Buffalo gets a generational defenseman, and still be in the draft for the next few years, even with Eickel.

So I guess Ottawa will want to keep that fourth pick and give next year’s pick to the Avs

With the way they are going.  They have a shot at being #1 next year.

Yeah it was good of Sakic to trade Duchene so he wouldn’t have to go through another rebuild. Be careful what you ask for, Douchy 

 

Karlsson and Duchene is a year away from UFA.  And as amazing as it is.  You have Bobby Ryan and Marian Gaborik also taking up cap space.  If I were them, I'd try to package those two with those other two this offseason.  And start fresh.

caps win on the road to take a 2-1 series lead. the game winner by Ovi was pretty awesome, batting in his own rebound out of the air.

plus, it went about as far as a kole calhoun hit.

Tom Wilson got a 3 game suspension for a cheap shot to Zach Aston-Reese that broke his jaw and gave him a concussion. If there's a game 7 and Wilson comes back they may send someone out to try to deCAPitate him. (pun intended?)

Preds have to win in Winnipeg for a second time to avoid elimination. Rinne is no MAF

Unless he plays the Ducks, then he become George Vezina.

Laine and Connor are alive now and Byfuglien is playing like he’s the Norris finalist. It could be weeks before the Jets lose again 

And I’m a bit surprised at how easily the Bruins got handled

Stamkos wants it more than the Bruins, Stamkos last played in the playoffs 2 years ago for 1 game before getting hurt.

Now that he's healthy for this years post season the lightning look much better.

You think all those Canadian hockey reporters are dreading the thought of trekking between Nashville and Tampa for a potential finals? Not enough sunscreen and mosquito repellent budget at the Saskatoon Sentinel.
