NYI 1 BUF 2 so

Odds are that we'll see the Isles now.  I'm okay with that; it's a good chance to lay some ghosts to rest.

Martin and Neal return tonight, no word on Orpik or Sid.  Should get some semblence of what our first round lineup will look like.  Based on the lines they've run out in practice the past few days, Kunitz is with malkin and Neal and Iginla would be with Dupuis and Sid.  Jokinen instead of Sid until hes back.

What misery that line will be to play against.

If Ottawa wins in regulation, ot or so, we get the isles.  They lose (in any form, I think? correct me if I'm wrong; fuck, I hate the NHL standings format) we get OTT.

Either way, I'm down with it.  Let's get the playoffs going.  Too bad Philly didn't make it.   We'll miss your cheap shotting asses... not at all.

Correct, if Ottawa wins in any format, we play the Isles as a win always gets you two points. If Ottawa loses in OT or shootout then there are a number of tiebreakers in play including wins (not applicable here as NYI and Ott would have same records), wins in regulation (defined as wins not occurring by shootouT;again the teams are tied), head-to-head, goal differential.

I would prefer the Islanders. Question is, would you prefer to play the Sens in lieu of a likely round two matchup against the Bruins (as a win today would give them the #2 seed)?

If we're going to make the finals, we're going to have to play Boston sooner or later, IMO.

True.  However there is a benefit of deferral given Crosby's health and synergies with the new players that may take a little time to develop once he is in the lineup.  On the flip side, Boston has been playing like absolute ass of late, so a closer in time matchup could bode well.   

I also think Montreal could be a more difficult matchup.  Hopefully we only see one of the two.

What happened to Nieuwendyk?  I guess the Goligoski-for-Neal and Niskanen trade should have been a clue.

1. PIT 48 35 12 0 72pts
8. NYI 48 24 17 7 55

And there it is.  Like I said above, happy to get the Isles in round one.  A golden opportunity to erase some unpleasant postseason memories in a year when the Isles just aren't very good. 

My full first round predictions:

East
PIT in 5 over NYI
MON in 6 over OTT
BOS in 6 over TOR
WAS in 7 over NYR

West
CHI in 4 over MIN
DET in 7 over ANA
VAN in 7 over SJ
LA in 6 over STL
