My 2010 Hockey Playoff Picks - Round 2

Wow what a first round! The Habs totally surprised me for the third straight year, only this time they did so by NOT choking!
Eastern Conference
Pittsburgh vs. Montreal
The Habs are already punching above their weight class, but does this not sound familiar to anyone? Halak and a group of young upstarts surprising Ovechkin and an offensive juggernaut team is reminiscent of the Vancouver olympics. Anyone remember how Slovakia did in the next round when they ran up against Crosby? As I recall Crosby didn't have the best record during the olympics (Gold medal game notwithstanding!!!), and he's on fire in these playoffs, so I expect Malkin will be pleased to be on the delivering end of an ass kicking this time. Pens in Five.
Philadelphia vs. Boston
After barely squeaking into the playoffs the Flyers have shown some serious guts! Boston is tough, but Philly has the momentum. Flyers in Seven.
Western Conference
San Jose v. Detroit
If the big guns for the Sharks play like they can, this series is over before it even begins. Unfortunately, they have not been playing like they can and were lucky to make it this far. Wings in Five.
Chicago v. Vancouver
The Sedin brothers woke up in the last round and racked up some serious goals, but the young and fast Hawks will be too much for them. Blackhawks in Six.

  • Vancouver in 6... San Jose in 6 (Detroit runs out of gas...);

    Montreal (not likely, but they're Canadian). Boston should put Philly away in 7.

  • You're funny... I recall a certain first round where you said Caps in 5... Now the Pens in 5? If you learned a thing or two, wouldn't that be Pens in 6 or 7, to say the least?

  • The most important part of a music site is the content available to the user, and for the most part Pandora Bracelets uk does an exceptional job. I'm a fan of rap and hip-hop, so I started my search with Bullet by Rhyme fest. The layout of the site is clean and it's very intuitive.
