Fantastic. I pick Connor and just find out now that he’s never scored against the Flames.

So it turns out the Penguins aren't that untouchable.

I picked Habs. I can't believe no one in the media picked them.

Boy am I well rested for tonight’s game.

Went to have a quick 20 min nap last night before the mtl game. My wife left me there and I slept from 7-7. Haven’t gotten that much sleep in years.

Well I've been hearing non-stop how the Habs were terrible and had no chance of winning even a game for weeks.... unless Price makes 70 saves a game.

Turns out it was a great game and the Habs won it.

Most of these series are going to be 50/50 toss ups.

I do still favour the Pens, but winning that first game has definitely tipped the scales.

According to Matt Murray the Penguins have decided to take this series one game at a time. I think this is a wise approach. He might also want to think about his angles on shots from the outside but the one game at a time idea is a good starting place.

Price could still end up stealing this thing but I still think Pens take the series

You want to do that even more in a 5 game series. One game at a time. What a flash in the pan Murray is becoming.

Ya but normally we have one or two trolls coming through.

A leaf loss tonight will bring the troll wave.

There’s going to be a lot of bridges wondering where their trolls went.

Fwiw, I think the Leafs take this series easily. I personally think the Leafs are a top 3-4 team in the league, even with the atrocious defence. They just never got it going this year. With the injuries and Babcock firing, a lot went wrong and they never hit their stride. But they had almost a month to get it all back on track and work out any issues. Mikheyev is a massive addition, we’ll see what Robertson brings, I have a feeling he’ll excel. Some teams seem to be taking this post season more seriously than others, and the Leafs seem to be humming along like a finely tuned sports car.

Will they win the race, or crash and burn on the final lap?

They’ve got the talent but there are so many unknowns about this whole thing. It’s a terrible cliche but we may see how something about their character in how they respond to all the waiting.

We’ll hear fire Dubas way before hearing anything about Babs. Keefe is seen as an extension of Dubas

I wonder what our odds of winning the Cup would be going into the first round - obviously depends on who we play, etc

A lot of people talking about how offence might easier to come by with the restart. So far most of the more defensive teams won yesterday.

I think leafs win 2-1.

Matthews scores 1

It's entertaining from a non Leafs fan point of view.

"Franking Willy coasting getting beaten to the puck each time he's on the ice! I'm so sick of this prima Donna swede! Trade him Dubas! He's so franking useless!!!!! 6.9 million!!!! Overrated lazy perimeter Willy!!!!!

Leafs score. Nylander wires one top corner...

"Franking Willy Nye! Leafs score!!! Yeeeeeeeeessss!!!! Franking right mother frankers!!!! 1967! 2011 Bruins! Shoulda taken Laine! Waffle gate! Zamboni driver! Willyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!! I love you!!!!! But Dubas caaaaaavvvveeeeeddddd!!!!

4-2 win with Hyman empty net
Win first real round, if confidence builds ???
Matthews and Willie are solid but CBJ focus on them defensively. They may score on PP. 5 on 5 scoring comes from JT and and 3rd lines.

Stock advice and polling analysis also available

They're currently at 30/1 on one site I checked out. That could radically change depending on how (and if) they dispatch CBJ.

So basically they could win the Cup and still be underdogs because defense.
