LOSER Tonight and this afternoon will be an outright cluster&@$^. I can't even begin to try to calculate who we are going to end up playing in the first round. If we lose tonight it will be the Leafs, simple as that. If we win and Boston loses their game to Washington then things will get interesting tomorrow night in the finale game of Ottawa vs Boston. So basically win for drama and lose to play the Leafs. My heart says lose and sweep the Leafs out in the first round for what would be revenge for every Saturday night game of my childhood living in Ontario. My sensible self says win and end up playing an easier team seeded way lower than us. It is going to be an interesting 40 hours ahead. Oh, and if we draw the Sens in the first round I'd be all over some tickets, so kinda hoping for that too. Gametime is 7PM on CBC. Go Habs Go!
With the March Madness NCAA Basketball tournament starting up tomorrow, people all over North America and abroad are filling out their brackets. Even President Obama gets in on the action each year. Though my knowledge in sports lies pretty much in the world of hockey, I've been attempting brackets for the past six years. This year my final four are: Kentucky, Syracuse, Missouri, and North Carolina. When it comes to the NHL nobody gets excited and fills out an NHL playoff bracket. I am here to change that today. Since my creative juices are lacking in humour during this dismal time in Montreal, I thought I'd throw together an NHL bracket of my own based on the NHL Playoffs matches that would be happening if the season ended last night. Please feel free to rip me apart in the comment section. 1st Round East: New York Rangers vs Washington Capitals Winner: New York Rangers in 5 Boston Bruins vs Ottawa Senators Winner: Boston Bruins in 5 Florida Panthers vs New J
