    Kings are getting swept, but Fluery has nothing to do with it. Vegas could put a rotting corpse in net against the Kings anemic offense and still win 1-0.

    That would be classic Caps... and it isn't even the Penguins this time. I think OV puts them on his back and gets them one.
    I thought so too... but they just got obliterated 8-1 tonight.

    Wtf is up with those guys? It is a team full of veteran talent and grit (they are almost as dirty as the Bruins). How the hell are they folding so hard, and with all due respect San Jose isn't a Nashville or a Tampa here.


    I hope their are no sweeps; playoff hockey is supposed to be a game of inches; blowouts are no fun.

    However, I do think Toronto and possibly Minnisota are the only teams down in series right now that I think have a reasonable chance of making a comeback: Toronto because the sheer amount of talent and the chance Marchand finally crosses the line and gets himself suspended... he is already walking that line. Minnisota mainly due to the fact that they are so veteran heavy and Winnipeg, although they have solid veterans has only one playoff series as the Jets and that was a sweep years ago; inexperience is always a risk, even if they are a far more talented team then the Wild.
    I still wouldn't be placing any money on either the Leafs or the Wild at this point if I were a betting man, but they have the best shots I think.

    Fun fact.

    Only three NHL teams have never been swept in the playoffs.

    Vegas in one attempt.
    Nashville in 17 attempts.
    New Jersey in 44 attempts. We

    Huh, neat factoid. Well, I guess the trap guaranteed at least one 1:0 victory in a series then.
    Why am I not surprised that a Ducks fan is cheering for the Bruins.

    Heck, Marchand is practically just Kessler with actual talent.

    Think the Kings and Caps will manage to find one win. Ducks are toast.

    Before the playoffs started, I doubt saying the Kings, the Caps and Ducks would potentially get swept would be a well-supported opinion.
    Gotta love the post season.

    Thought Winnipeg would sweep Minnesota, but I think it looks as it's possible with only Vegas and San Jose.

    Best of luck to the Ducks hopefully they don't continue their meltdown and manage to win a game or two. Losing two straight at home then following it up with a 8-1 loss... I enjoy a good meltdown as well.

    What if Bettman is Fleury's uncle -- not Sid's.

    Ducks are getting swept. They're getting pounded so hard they should be on SVU.
