2012 Playoffs: Quarterfinals Day One

So much to talk about and so much to avoid.


#4 Pittsburgh Penguins / #5 Philadelphia Flyers

Flyers lead series 1-0 come from behind win in OT.

Really? We were not pleased with this at all but it happens and we can only hope for the best from the Penguins in Friday's game.

So, can we talk about the dominance from Brayden Schenn? Like seriously, we knew the kid was good and he showed flashes of it in the regular season but come on, he was effing brilliant against the Penguins in Game One.

What a player and what a kid. He was offensively on the whole game. When Claude Giroux was shut down, Schenn was there to pick up the slack and man did he do just that.

Of course we're hoping for none of that in Game Two but that doesn't mean it didn't happen.


#4 Nashville Predators / #5 Detroit Red Wings

Predators lead series 1-0 after a 3-2 win in Smashville

We know what everyone is talking about after this game ended. It's the Weber WWE move on Zetterberg. We've heard enough, you've heard enough so let's move on and talk about the game.

What we want to focus on is the dominance of the Predators's third line. The line of Nick Spaling, Gabriel Bourque and Matt Halischuk.

When the first two 'scoring' lines couldn't produce anything, their third line came up big. We've always thought that the Predators had an excellent third line and this game really made us believe.


#1 Vancouver Canucks / #8 Los Angeles Kings

Kings lead series 1-0 after a 4-2 win

Biggest story to come out of this series so far? PENALTIES GALORE! Seriously, everything was being called on everyone.

There was barely any pace to the game and the Kings had some good chances on the power play and finally converted.

Mike Richards was a huge factor in the game as well and his playoff experience for the Kings is obviously invaluable.

Our favorite part? Dustin Penner's game-winner.
