    When filling out my bracket yesterday, I had a repeat of NSH/PIT in the finals with PIT doing a three-peat. Then I thought about it more and really thought about the match-ups. This series has "upset" written all over it.

    Pens in 6 due to rivalry. Penguins are a better team from top to bottom. But rivals always step up to play one another.

    Hate the Flyers, but I think they can upset here. They could be the dark horse in the EAST. They always play the Pens tough.

    I'm going Pens in six, but I'm hoping this is a war of attrition that goes the full stretch with multiple overtime games.

    But the Flyers had some problems with no consistency throughout the year, and Hakstol continues to play old, terrible veterans instead of his young, hungry players that have been dreaming of going to the playoffs. Penguins in 5 or 6, but will be very close due to the rivarly

    Terrible defensive effort by PHI tonight. This series is far from over though. PHI is fully capable of bouncing back with 2 straight wins. PIT has been wildly inconsistent this year.

    I was around and HATED those MF'rs!!!!! It was great to watch Islander big guy Clark Gilles finally hand Dave "the Hammer" Schultz the beatin he long deserved. Was never the same after that.

    I was trying to come up with what the Flyers would offer to trade for Lundqvist but I stopped because it made my brain hurt.
