Here are my Round 1 predictions! Feel free to leave your predictions in the comments.
The Minnesota Wild open the first round of the playoffs Thursday against the dynamic and Central Division surprise Colorado Avalanche. The Avs have flourished this season behind a cast of budding superstars and a fiery coach in Patrick Roy. The question now is how this potent team will fair in the playoffs against the more seasoned Wild who have a worse record, but boast more experience at nearly every position. (more…)
You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, and you certainly don’t want to face-off against the defending Stanley Cup champions in the first round, in a Game 7, on the road.

In their 4-1 victory over the Washington Capitals, the surging Colorado Avalanche picked up a beautiful insurance marker from Gabriel Landeskog, the youngest captain in the NHL. Not only is he the youngest captain in the NHL today, but the youngest ever in NHL history, eclipsing the previous record holder, Sidney Crosby. On top of that, he scored his goal after blowing past Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin, who earned the “C” at age 24, and is part of a slew of young NHL captains in the League right now. While many teams look to the aged veteran to lead the team, many have decided that a breath of fresh air is what their team needs in the captaincy. Not all these young captains have worked out, but many of them have been successful.
The Avalanche shut out the Bruins 2-0 in Boston Thursday night off a stellar performance in net from Jean-Sebastien Giguere.

Friday night against the New York Rangers and Saturday against the Colorado Avalanche. (more…)
HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOCKEY WORLD! It is that time of year again! HOCKEY IS BACK! For the LA Kings, the first game of the season is not until October 3, but most things hockey start this week. What does that mean? HOCKEY IS BACK! (more…)
