I think he jinxed it, though he wasn’t the only one that was uneasy coming into tonight.
We’re down to eight in the NHL playoffs now (and not always the eight we expected, as Shawn has so casually reminded us), so I’m rolling out the second round of ‘I’m going to be wrong’ predictions:
(5) San Jose over (8) Edmonton in 4
Because I’m a bitter, bitter man.
(6) Anaheim over (7) Colorado in 6
Because they showed me something in the games I watched.
(1) Ottawa over (4) Buffalo in 6
This should be fun to watch. I might actually tune into some of these games.
(3) New Jersey over (2) Carolina in 5
Bandwagon Cup pick, right here!
The Flames aren’t as good as we hoped they were. I’ll let the more intelligent sorts figure out why that is, and look forward to next year.
On the plus side, the Pistons are still in the NBA playoff hunt, so with the Flames out, I can follow them closer now.
