As long as Fleury picks it up the champs should be fine. Regardless, can't wait these are awesome to watch

I'm nervous about the matchup w. the Habs....they have a SICK PP and the Caps are pretty bad on the PK. Caps have to stay out of the box in order to take this series....

Halak is solid and the Canadiens played tough against the Caps all year....I'd like to say Caps in 6 (hopefully)

Caps in 4. Halak will be pulled by Game 2.
Devils in 7. Tough match-up. Boucher played decent down the stretch and no matter what anyone thinks about Pronger, he always shows up in the postseason.
Sabres in 6. Hopefully Boston breaks the 2 goal barrier in a game or two.
Penguins in 5. I have no qualmes saying that if Ottawa was healthy, they'd push Pittsburgh to 7 games.

Sharks in 5. They got really lucky that the Avs got the 8 seed.
Chicago in 7. This one could go either way to me. Rinne is one of the best goalies in the league. If he plays great and Niemi/Huet play like they normally do...
Kings in 6. Doughty and Scuderi will shut down the Sedins and Burrows. I really like this team. They have the depth and experience with Smyth, Williams, Scuderi and Modin. And I have no faith in Luongo's mental toughness to be honest. It's just a matter of when he decides to fall apart.
Red Wings in 7. Great goalies, great coaches I think this will be the best series in the first round.

doublej's...you guys will be fine. 5 games probably, 6 at the most. i just don't see them keeping up, or putting up another 6 goal performance. as far as the PP, it can only do so much for them. but i dont see halak shutting you guys down completely.

caps in 5
devils in 6
bruins in 6
pens in 5

sharks in 4
blackhawks in 6
canucks in 7

Bruins have taken 4 out of 6 vs. Buffalo this year, but I see them having a lot of trouble scoring goals against Miller.

Of course.  Just bought my playoff tickets a few minutes ago.  Gotta grab another jersey though, this Marty jersey has been bad luck the past few years...

Henrik and Daniel Power Twins Activate!  I'd love for this to happen, although I never though that going into the playoffs the thing that made me most nervous was our goaltending

Switch it up and get yourself a Parise jersey. That's sick that you get to catch some playoff hockey live.

I went to a Yankee game with the Parise jersey on last year, I think it's sullied.  Trying to get a Zajac or Kovy jersey even though he won't be around.

It's in Jersey, tickets were pretty cheap compared to what it'd be like at the Garden.
