HOCKEY POOL: Ready for Round 2

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!


  1. I screamed so loud celebrating that Montreal knocked off the Caps that I scared seven lives out of one of our cats. Teams, not players, win the Cup.

  2. Absolutely.

    I think Washington had the team (and I hope they do very little to change things up), but Montreal just played ferociously in their own zone and Halak was incredible.

    They have a even mightier task now in dethroning the champs. I don't see the Pens taking Montreal as lightly.
