First time since 2004 for the Leafs in playoffs, congrats ! =D>

Montréal is really bad these past 5 games again last night Price let the team down ( 4 goals in 11 shots ) ... early golf if they continue that way.

Is Washington the Kings of 2013 ??

No, because it won't be surprising.

If Winnipeg somehow makes the playoffs, and then knocks out Pittsburgh, you can start talking about "the Kings of 2013". If Washington continues to dominate in the playoffs like they have the past month, well, they ARE the 3 seed, and they've been playing out-of-this-world after a lot of underachieving.

It's worth adding that the Kings haven't been considered one of the best teams since back in the day when they had Gretzky, and on the flipside Washington packs some of the best players in the world, won the presidents trophy not long ago and have been underperforming the last few years. It's hard to compare these teams even though I'm sure the journalists at nhl.com will gladly do so just to have something to write about. I almost enjoyed reading all the far fetched uninteresting stories they published during the lockout. They redefined my understanding of the word "desperate", these guys will seriously write about anything !

The TO should put up a poll asking us if the red wings will make the playoffs or not, and if possible I would like the city of Detroit to provide us with a picture of Serbias face when they get eliminated, a video would be even better.

While I'd like to see the Wings make the playoffs and continue the streak, I'm doubtful they will right now. They committed stupid mistakes in their loss to Calgary, one of the League's worst teams who had Detroit's number all season, and then couldn't take advantage of a tired and slow Canucks team last night. They've been leaving valuable points on the table consistently. Right now, they don't deserve to be a playoff team. And if they make it, their reward will be an additional four or five games against Chicago, and then an early summer. This team isn't going anywhere as currently constructed.

There have been years when I get mad when the Wings are eliminated, but this year, whether it's in the regular season or the conference quarters, I won't be angry; I'll be expecting it.

Pens are 3-0 against Boston, Montreal, Washington this season. In fact, against (projected) playoff teams we only have 4 losses and we haven't even had Crosby, Malkin or Neal for the last few wins.

Assuming we get those three back, I'll be disappointed with anything other than a Cup finals appearance. I'd accept a loss to Chicago (not that I'd be happy nor expect it) but anything less will be worse than last year's debacle.

How about a conference quarterfinals exit against the Rangers? Lundqvist is definitely capable of stealing a series and if the penis (oops, I meant pens) will be without crosby, malkin and neal then I will not even raise an eyebrow if they get eliminated.

I'd actually like to see the Stars make the playoffs...
but 3 points away from Columbus with 3 games left.

Chicago & Pittsburgh are both tough outs when healthy
and would make another good Cup Final.

Even without those three we still have a better offense. It'll fully depend on Fleury's play.

I was at the Wings win over Los Angeles last night, and I'm on my way downtown for their tilt against Nashville tonight. If the Wings win, and Dallas beats Columbus, the Wings clinch a playoff berth. GO WINGS!

I'd much rather go into the playoffs with momentum. Losing a few games before the dance just doesn't sit well with me.

Anyway, not only did we win, we destroyed the Canes. Neal got a hatty in his first game back and Martin looked good too.

Detroit vs. Anaheim is probably going to be the best series. I can't see the Red Wings lay down; they haven't missed a playoffs in my entire life. Literally.

I'll make my choices after the Sens-Bruins game.

As a Wings fan, I can't believe how entirely lucky we are to experience this stretch of sustained success. Should be an entertaining series with the Ducks, though I don't expect the Wings to get past them, despite winning the season series.

Chicago and Pittsburgh have both had grand seasons,
but who look strong going into the playoffs?

22 consecutive playoffs for the Wings is an impressive streak
and the Kings' cup run is a reminder that anything is possible.

If Chicago doesn't win their series against Minnesota.......I don't have words to describe how sick that would be. Not only is Chicago a way better team, they're also in incredible form. It would be a bigger upset than Los Angeles beating Vancouver last year. Hah, if Minnesota beats Chicago and goes on to win the Stanley cup, last years upset would pale in comparison!
I consider Anaheim vs Detroit a very open series, Detroit is a better team with a more experienced organisation but Anaheim have been on fire this season. I'm gonna go ahead and pick Detroit just because Anaheim is a very uneven team, they get red hot then they get stone cold, this season has been a red hot one, but it's not always that it carries on into the playoffs. Detroit on the other hand won their last four games and probably come into this series with a nothing to lose attitude, they're happy just to make the playoffs and keep the streak alive, anything more now is just a bonus. I don't think Anaheim will respond well to the pressure of being favorites.
Vancouver vs San Jose, I just don't believe in Vancouver this season. What I've seen from them have been sub par. The Sedin's are not in their "zone", they can't seem to carry the team this season. As much as I'd like to see my fellow redhaired swedes make it through the first round, I don't think they will. It's not that San Jose are that good, Vancouver have just been that bad. Let's get this straight, Vancouver are excellent at winning low energy games, the typical mid season game, they do it with little effort and that's why they're the third seed. But high intensity games usually don't suit them as well. It might be that they beat San Jose anyway, it will most likely be a close series, but I don't see them getting far this year.
St. Louis vs Los Angeles, I don't know what to think in this one, Los Angeles are the defending champs but they haven't been playing like it, St. Louis is...probably the most anonymous, pure teamworking team in the leaugue. No ego superstars, but still a very competitive team. They were the second seed last year so they obviously got a good group there. An anonymous group, but that probably works to their advantage in some regards. I don't think Los Angeles will get their things together, and to be honest I think they almost played above their ability last year, I don't think they will be a contender the next few years either. St. Louis for the win.

EASTERN CONFERENCE
Conference Quarterfinals
#1 Pittsburgh Penguins vs. #8 New York Islanders: Penguins in 5. I think NYI will manage to steal one, but the Pens move on.
#2 Montreal Canadiens vs. #7 Ottawa Senators: Habs in 6. I just like Montreal in this matchup.
#3 Washington Capitals vs. #6 New York Rangers: Caps in 5. Washington has been on a tear, NYR hasn't. Caps are better.
#4 Boston Bruins vs. #5 Toronto Maple Leafs: Bruins in 7. I see a close, physical series, but in the end, it's Toronto. 'nuf said.

Conference Semifinals
#1 Pittsburgh Penguins vs. #4 Boston Bruins: Bruins in 6 Just going with my gut here.
#2 Montreal Canadiens vs. #3 Washington Capitals: Habs in 6. I think Montreal gets on a roll

Conference Finals
#2 Montreal Canadiens vs. #4 Boston Bruins: Habs in 7. I'd love to see this matchup. It'll be a typically rough series.

WESTERN CONFERENCE
Conference Quarterfinals
#1 Chicago Blackhawks vs. #8 Minnesota Wild: Hawks in 4. Wild faded, barely getting in, and Chicago's been great.
#2 Anaheim Ducks vs. #7 Detroit Red Wings: Ducks in 6. I see why people like the upset, but I think Anaheim is for real, Detroit is not.
#3 Vancouver Canucks vs. #6 San Jose Sharks: 'Nucks in 7. Intriguing matchup, will be a long one, tight, and home ice decides it.
#4 St. Louis Blues vs. #5 Los Angeles Kings: Kings in 7. I really believe this could go either way, and in the end, I'm giving it to experience.

Conference Semifinals
#1 Chicago Blackhawks vs. #5 Los Angeles Kings: Hawks in 6 The reigning champs get knocked out.
#2 Anaheim Ducks vs. #3 Vancouver Canucks: Ducks in 5 I really like the Ducks in this series. I still feel Vancouver is a great regular season team, but just can't get it done in the playoffs.

Conference Finals
#1 Chicago Blackhawks vs. #2 Anaheim Ducks: Hawks in 7 A long series, but Chicago wins on home ice.

STANLEY CUP FINALS
#1 Chicago Blackhawks vs. #2 Montreal Canadiens: Habs in 6 Montreal finally comes through for Canada and adds to their league-leading Cup total. Carey Price is named Canada's God. Toronto goes into a severe depression.

Bollocks.
