Well, can you believe it? The Montreal Canadiens have come back from a 3 games to 1 deficit to beat out the Caps in Game 7 tonight. They are the first #8 seed EVER to come back from 3-1 down to beat out a #1 seed.
That puts a bit of a dent in my hockey pool.
I mentioned how I hated my team originally. I'm actually quite surprised that I'm sitting in first.
I doubt I'll stay there long.
I ended up losing 5 players in the first round. Ovechkin and Poti (massive disappointment), Doughty and Smyth (could have....could have), and Derek Roy (Buffalo really performed poorly).
Only a handful of Detroit guys and Mike Richards can take me to the promise land.
The guy in second right now lost ONE PLAYER...and he was a defenceman. Not good. I need more Halak magic (as he has a lot of Pens).
Such a fine line this year in the playoffs. Colorado, Nashville, and LA came close to really making this a wide open pool.
We'll see where things go in round two. Go Wings!
