The Best Time of the Year

Posted in All-star, Calgary Flames, Hockey, Iginla, NHL, Sidney Crosby, Stanley Cup with tags , , , , , , on April 9, 2008 by flamesfan77

Hello Hockey Fans,

Today is what we all wait for.  The NHL playoffs begin tonight and I can’t wait.  First, we have Crosby in his sophomore playoff performance.  How will he perform in his second matchup against Ottawa?

Then we have the Flames vs the Sharks in what should be one of the best first-round matchups. Joe vs Jarome? Sign me up!

We also have division rivals the Rangers and Devils and Avalanche and Wild going to battle.

Ovechkin makes his debut against the Flyers, while the Habs look to continue their dominance against the Bruins.

I know I missed some matchups, but they are obviously not as exciting…

Enjoy!

Western Conference Playoff Preview

Detroit vs Nashville:

Everyone thinks Detroit will run over Nashville, but Detroit has had problems in the playoffs in recent years.  Nashville also has been hot down the stretch.  I predict Detroit, but in 6.

San Jose vs Calgary:

Well you may think I made this choice because I am a homer, but I will give my rationale.  The Flames won the season series 3-1, with victories twice in San Jose.  San Jose has been hot since acquiring Campbell, but Campbell is not a solid playoff performer.  The same could be said about the Sharks as they have struggled in recent years.  Kipper also loves to play well against the team that gave up on him.  I say Calgary in 6.

Minnesota vs Colorado:

This is an even match up, but I think Colorado has been the better team when healthy, which they are(besides season ending injuries).  Minnesota will try and trap, but Sakic and Forsberg will be too much and Colorado will win in 6.

Anaheim vs Dallas:

This should be a great series.  Unless Turco stands on his head Anaheim will be too strong to overcome.  They have been hot since they got their two veterans back, and Gigeure is a great playoff goalie.  Anaheim wins in 6.

Predictions Wrap-Up

Well the regular season is now done, and I am pleased to announce that for the month or so that I have been doing this, I finished with a 77-44 record!:) That is almost a 64% success rate. 

My last two days were 5-2 apiece which helped.

For the playoffs I am just going to make series predictions, which will be by conference over the next two days.
