Rnd 1: Chi vs Nash (All things)

29 posts in this topic

What on earth is happening here? I wasn't expecting a 2 series lead for NSH, much less a blowout in game 2.

The Hawks are finding that playing the Preds is like fending off a badger in a phone booth....you never win that one.

I remember listening to one of my favourite hockey podcasts and one of the guys on there went through a bunch of analytics showing how this series might be closer than people gave it credit for. I was interested but couldn't make myself bet against the hawks regardless of the data. D'oh. That'll teach me to go against the numbers.

Nashville was the one team I did not want to face in the first round. They are pretty solid and if Rinnie is on his game they are just hard to play against.

My bracket is screwed now. I had Chicago going to the finals. I did the same thing with the Kings last year.

A lot of people had a Chi/Washington final. Your sig is a lot closer to what I would want however you should replace Eberle with McDavid OPF.

Yeah, I should have someone change that and the jersey colours. I would much rather have the Pens' gold and the Oilers' orange.

You win this one Happy. Another 2-0 lead that turns into a OT loss, seems to be happening a lot this year

I saw a few analysts call this based on the advanced metrics. Marek had Nashville as his cup pick.

A wild card team up 3-0 against #1 seed. This is what makes NHL playoffs so fun to watch. Once you make the playoffs anything can happen.

Hawks about to be swept, down 3-0 late 3rd period.  Hawks have only scored 2 goals the whole series. Didn't expect this.

Preds are a serious contender.

Well that's the last time I bet against the underlying numbers. 2 goals in 4 games for the hawks. Wonder if the coach is at risk?

Hard to believe Quenneville's job would be in jeopardy. If so, it would take all of 10 seconds for him to get another one.
