The Pittsburgh Penguins were battered in a sweep by the Boston Bruins! I totally did not expect this whatsoever. I was really hoping that this series would have gone a full seven. This sweep makes the Canucks being swept by the San Jose Sharks a lot better. Poor baby Sidney Crosby probably needs somebody to give him a hug tho!
Western Conference Final Review
I was in favour of the Chicago Blackhawks in winning the series against the Los Angeles Kings in seven games. They did it in five.
Stanley Cup Finals Prediction
I originally predicted that the Pittsburgh Penguins to be the 2013 NHL Champions. Since they were swept off their feet by the Boston Bruins in four games I now realize the second place team this year no longer has a chance nor did they originally deserve it. I’m in favour of the Chicago Blackhawks winning the series against the Boston Bruins in the best of seven games.
The 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs are now underway. I made some predictions for the first round last year which were disastrous. My prediction rate isn’t the best but it isn’t exactly a science to it like visiting a fortune teller… So I am going to do the same this year and stick with it…
In favour of the Pittsburgh Penguins over the New York Islanders in a sweep of four.
In favour of the Montreal Canadiens over the Ottawa Senators in the best of seven.
In favour of the New York Rangers over the Washington Capitals in the best of seven.
In favour of the Boston Bruins over the Toronto Maple Leafs in the best of seven.
In favour of the Chicago Blackhawks over the Minnesota Wild in a sweep of four. (Suck it Koivu!)
In favour of the Detroit Red Wings over the Anaheim Ducks in the best of seven.
In favour of the St. Louis Blues over the Los Angeles Kings in the best of seven.
In favour of the Vancouver Canucks over the San Jose Sharks in the best of seven.
Dave – someone I’ve met on Twitter has written an excellent guide on joining the Vancouver Canucks bandwagon. We’re pretty much open to everyone joining our team’s cause. However, I think he’s missed one key point.
DO NOT broadcast the team that you cheer for on the regular season, especially if they’re the Toronto Maple Leafs. Although the same can be said for the following teams as well: the Minnesota Wild, the Calgary Flames and the Edmonton Oilers because we all know that the longtime rivalry between our teams isn’t going to be suspended for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Yes, we’re thrilled that you are cheering for our team on in the playoffs. We just like to poke check. It’s fucking fun.
You should also bookmark Brown to Bure, if your a new or old fan. Dave does blog about insightful things about our team. And who knows, you may actually learn something. I certainly have.
