What? Wait. Minnesota won one?
And the Islanders did too?
And the Leafs…?
Some guy we never heard of named Jason Zucker got a game winning goal? And another named Jean-Gabriel Pageau had a hat trick???
Nobody’s ever heard of these guys!!! And the smart money said none of those teams had a chance!
Yep. The playoffs are unpredictable. Which is what makes them so damn much fun.
For example -- Anybody not tuning in to Game 4 between the Sens and the Habs after this?
Something tells me the prices on Stubhub just doubled for that baby.
Meanwhile, on the West coast…
I understand committees are being formed in Vancouver and Maple Ridge to urge the currently campaigning provincial political parties to come up with a tax credit program to “Save BC Hockey”.
All of which explains why the standings in the Infamous Writers Hockey Pool have shaken up a lot since Friday. Larry Raskin still leads by a single point, with a whole bunch of players who’d been way down the list on Friday now nipping at his heels.
It’s going to be an interesting week. Game on!
