Wow - I didn't think anyone (or hardly any) was expecting Nashville to go up 2-0 in their series against Chicago and Toronto to tie their series against Washington at 1-1 this early... this may be much tighter than we initally thought... not to jinx it yet for now

The Calgary Flames really gave it all they got, but unfortunately their season is done as the Anaheim Ducks are the first team to move on to round 2 by sweeping them 4-0.

Maple Leafs drop a 5-4 decision to the Washington Capitals in game 4 to tie that series at 2-2. Once again, the Leafs get behind early, but unlike last time, they weren't quite able to get the "W".

Wow, I don't think anyone was expecting that. Nashville is the first #8 team to sweep a #1 seed in the playoffs. I feel bad for the people who picked the Blackhawks to win it... (there's a lot of bracket busting now)

Meanwhile, Columbus is out in 5 games against Pittsburgh.

It's never happened in the NBA, either!

I'm about 50 miles outside of Nashville and could just about hear the cheering inside Bridgestone Arena from here. I can only imagine how electric the atmosphere was in person.

I'm not a huge hockey fan, but this playoff run might just change that. I absolutely need to get to a game in the next round.
Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

Wow, what a big win for the Edmonton Oilers - down 3-1 at one point and coming back to win it 4-3 in OT to take a 3-2 series lead against San Jose Sharks :)
