NHL Playoffs Round 2 Preview

Alright after a double dose of Game 7 last night, the first round of the NHL Playoffs has come to a conclusion.  In the preview of Round 1, I managed to pick six of the 8 series correctly and I got the game total corrent in four of them (Boston in 4, Carolina in 7, Pittsburgh in 6, and Detroit in 4).  I missed the Canucks’ sweep over my Blues and the Ducks upsetting the Sharks, though I almost picked that.  Too bad almost doesn’t count.  Anyway, on to Round 2.

Stat of the Day (15-0)

The Chicago Blackhawks have emerged as one of the better teams in the NHL this year and they are doing it in a fairly simple way: by beating the teams the should beat. Although, half of the teams on this list are playoff teams right now.

This season, the Blackhawks have gone a combined 15-0 against the Phoenix Coyotes, Calgary Flames, Colorado Avalanche, Edmonton Oilers, Vancouver Canucks and Dallas Stars. That would put the Hakws at 7-8-7 against the rest of the leauge.

The Hawks take on Colorado tonight, let’s see if they can push it to 16-0.
