Eastern Conference Playoff Preview

Posted in All-star, Hockey, NHL, Sidney Crosby, Stanley Cup with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2008 by flamesfan77

Well it is that time of year again, playoffs!  I will preview the East today, and tomorrow I will work on the West.

Montreal vs Boston:

If the regular season is any indication this should be a short series, but Montreal will be without their captain Saku Koivu and Michael Ryder.  The Habs went 8-0 vs Boston this year, and I believe will continue their dominance. Montreal in 5.

Pittsburgh vs Ottawa:

This is a match up of two teams heading in opposite directions.  The Penguins have been red hot, while the Sens have been cool and will be missing their captain Daniel Alfredsson.  I think Pittsburgh will win this series in six.

Washington vs Philadelphia:

This will be a high scoring affair that Washington should take with home ice.  Washington has been one of the hottest teams leading up to the playoffs and the Flyers have cooled off over the past month.  Look for Ovechkin to shine in his first post-season appearance. Caps take it in 6

New Jersey vs New York Rangers

Two division rivals square off and New York has dominated the season series, but I think Brodeur will keep the Devils in it with the home ice advantage.  Jagr has been hot lately, but I think New Jersey will take this in 6.

Tomorrow I will preview the West.

Pittsburgh Penguins fans got a scare in last nights game against the Boston Bruins as Marian Hossa was injured early in the second period after a knee on knee hit with a Boston player. 

He joins Sidney Crosby and Gary Roberts on the Pens injured reserve. 

He is expected to only miss a week however which is good news for a team which gave up its future for Hossa for a chance at the present.

Pittsburgh lost the game 5-1.
