The play offs officially start in two days and we couldn't be happier. It's like Christmas and St. Patrick's Day and a birthday all wrapped into one single day.
We may burst from the excitement.
Anyway, here is a link to the schedules.
We made our own little brackets and friendly wagers on this. Tomorrow we will have our recaps of the series and who we think should/will win.
Here are the brackets:
Coaches fired so far are Cory Clouston from the Ottawa Senators, Todd Richards from the Minnesota Wild and Peter DeBoer from the Florida Panthers.
In better news, Ken Hitchcock (remember him?) was given the head coaching job for Team Canada at the Worlds this summer.
We will be keeping tabs on that as best we can as well.
Brendan Morrison is going to have knee surgery. Link.
And in a bit of news that seems out of place being announced now, the NHL will be featuring four teams in Europe again.
This time it will be the Rangers, Kings, Duck and Sabres in Berlin, Stockholm and Helsinki.
