    Ok. That's enough. You're pushing things too far. That's bordering on our territory.

    Just watched both games this morning. Didn't know the results previously.

    Anaheim got unlucky. They had a couple great chances to start the game and then the Hawks capitalized...and continued to capitalize on pretty much every chance.

    The Bolts...well I underestimated them again. That game could've gone either way, but Killorn got that lucky backhand through and that was all she wrote.

    I dunno what will happen in the final, but it will be FAST.

    Whoa! I think this trumps McDonagh's broken foot.

    It was a McDonagh shot that put him out, BTW. Also McDonagh's stick that lifted Lundqvist's mask on that shot he took to the throat. #Leadership

    Just thought I'd remind us of our playoff brackets for no reason in particular:

    Haha. I caught a lot of flak from friends when I told them my picks (and picked the Sens to win it all in another bracket). I maintain that, as a diehard fan, it's both my right and my responsibility to pick my team against all odds to win it all every year that they're in the race. :crossarms:

    I have no excuse for the rest of my bracket. Puking2

    It's always tough to separate your heart from your brain when making picks. I think it was reasonable to pick Ottawa to beat Montreal. The Cup though? Not so much.

    I picked my players in my work pool based on my guess that Ottawa, The Rangers and Ducks and Hawks would make it to their respective Conference Finals. If I would have had to commit to who I thought would win the Cup, I would have said the Rangers.

    Fans? Reasonable?

    See, that's the thing, though. I actively turned my brain off and basically let my heart make my picks. It's boring to pick a Blackhawks/Rangers final (which is what my brain would have chosen). It was much more fun this way.

    I had Ottawa beating Montreal and Tampa then losing to the rags in the ECf. I thought it was reasonable at the time.

    I had Nash in the finals though. That was my pool right there.
