The Good Old Hockey Predictions: #4 Pittsburgh Penguins vs. #8 Montreal Canadiens

April 30, 2010

This is going to be a big matchup between the defending champions and a ragtag group playing for hockey’s most storied franchise. I expect a bigger role from Jordan Staal in this series. Sidney Crosby can take care of the rest. Jaroslav Halak proved he’s no slouch, but the Habs simply won’t be able to match Pittsburgh’s firepower.

For a brief moment in each team’s quarterfinal matchups, there were moments where it seemed neither team had enough gas to make it into the second round. Yet they got over their initial stumbling and ultimately ended up taking control.

To Play, Or Not to Play?

April 21, 2010
The Sabres are no longer stamepding over the competition as they did on their way to the Northeast Division title. Since the Boston series opened, Buffalo has been surprisingly underwhelming. I don’t think it’s burnout, and I don’t think it’s a lack of intensity. Many players for Boston are simply coming out of the woodwork after staying invisible for much of the regular season.

There Are Fans in Phoenix

Contrary to what my esteemed colleague Jeff Hancock believes, there are in fact fans of the Coyotes and there are plenty of them, as evidenced by the white-out that has returned to the Arena.

In fact, during tonight’s 3-2 victory over the Red Wings, Phoenix pulled off the feat in front of an announced attendance of 17,125. How do you like them apples, Jeff?

Granted, this series is far from over, but I stand by the underdogs.
