2017 NHL Playoffs Thread

Made this thread mostly to say damn those Preds just swept the Hawks!! Face Screaming In Fear Astonished Face

Even if anyone predicted the Preds to win they wouldn't ever have put any money on them sweeping the Hawks like this. Just insane.

Also the Flames getting swept isn't too surprising, but Columbus getting knocked out kinda sucks as I've always liked that team and wanted them to do well. But at least the Preds are looking good and its nice to see at least one expansion market succeeding and doing pretty well fanbase wise because damn that building is EFFING LOUD and its pretty cool to see. :D
Toronto sports teams..............forever cursed. Profound sadness. :(

no only did the sweep the Hawks but held them to 3 goals in 4 games. That's damn impressive.

"The Nashville Predators just became the first 8 seed in pro sports playoff history to ever sweep a 1 seed."

Crazy!

Bye bye Habs, bye bye Wild.

Wonder what the Habs will do in the offseason to see if they can't get further.

Will Price want an extension seeing that this team continues to flounder?

Price isn't irreplaceable like Dryden or Roy. I'm not blaming him, but I don't ever recall him standing on his head in the placyoffs.

For Round 2 here's who I'm rooting for:
NSH vs STL - NSH
ANA vs EDM - ANA
NYR vs OTT - NYR
WSH vs PIT - WSH (though PIT will probably take this one)

I may have to re-think that one. It's hard to cheer for Edmonton when your heart belongs to Calgary!

Cause they came last too many times and got too many pics, they already had the greatest player in the NHL at one time, now they get another one with that potential. Edmonton is the only Canadian team I wont cheer for at the moment which sucks because McDavid is amazing.

+1.

This being said, they look scary right now. Great goaltending, depth in spades, and McDavid creating space for their entire lineup. I wouldn't be surprised at all if they won the Cup this year....

I don't get you ppl. Are you guys really Canadians? I root for any Cdn team vs any Yankee one.

Also, what's w the Edm hate? Then you should hate Pitt also, they hit the lottery many times arguably more.

MrDisco, you're probably my fave mod, but, man, talk about totally opposite picks. Maybe save for Wash, just cuz I feel sorry for them lol.
