It’s that time of year again. I’ve been reviewing the match-ups (Canuckistanian teams only).
Ottawa vs Pittsburgh. Sigh. The Senators are sunk. Not that they deserve to go past the first round, as they have been positively crapola all season. They are lucky to have made it this far.
Montreal vs Boston. This should (in theory) be easy for the Canadiens. I’m quite certain they will breeze through this (ominous music builds in background). I’m even ready at this point to say that Montreal will win the Eastern Conference. But then they will get trounced by whoever wins the West. They aren’t winning the Cup.
Calgary vs San Jose. Hmm. This ain’t so good. But I don’t know much about the Western Conference, so I’ll just cross my fingers that Calgary pulls this off.
Fearless Prediction: Cup goes to Detroit.
