I'm excited, don't know who the Canadiens are going to face yet since the seeding might change today. Honestly, I don't care who we face I'm just glad that they made the playoffs. Last years run was fun to watch, and I do hope that we're going to get far again this season.

The regular season is over & the playoff match-ups are set. I'm pretty friggin' excited. I've been waiting for this for months.

I'll make my predictions within the next couple of days.

Here are my predictions for the first round.

-Flyers
-Pittsburgh
-Canadiens
-Capitals

-Ducks
-Sharks
-Red Wings
-Vancouver

Obviously the series I'm mostly looking forward too is Montreal vs. Bruins. We won the season series 4-2, but we got our asses handed to us during the last match-up. I have the Bruins with a passion, so I really, really want them to beat them.

Hopefully we'll be able to get some good discussions going on.

Meh! Only one team selected the Montreal Canadiens. I won't lie it kind of pisses me off that no one is giving the Canadiens any chance to win this series. I know the Bruins are stronger and bigger but Montreal are faster and more skilled for the most part. If Price is on top of his game, then I truly believe Montreal will win this this series. Our top six forwards will need to put the puck in the net and pass Tim Thomas too. I have confidence in the Canadiens, they won't the season series 4-2, I know that Playoffs is a different story, but we've had success against them in the past even when we were dogs, which we are again.

Tampa Bay vs. Pittsburgh is definitely a tricky one for me, and it could go either way. The decision factor for me is Marc Andre Fleury. He has tons of playoff experience, and I believe he'll be able to carry them pass the first round. We also don't know if Crosby will play in this years playoffs, if he does and he's 100% healthy then this team are Stanley Cup contenders once again.

I picked Tampa Bay because of the Crosby situation. Without Crosby or Malkin I do not think they are good enough to beat the Lightning. St Louis, Stamkos and Lecavalier are going to be just too much, I think.

Of course if Sid the Kid is back that completely changes everything.

I think the Canucks are going to be able to sweep the Blackhawks. The Blackhawks are lucky enough to have even been in the playoffs and I think they're going to get destroyed by Vancouver.
