Rite of Spring '14: Can you fall asleep with a panic switch?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to agree with that. The CCSLC's new favorite team, the Beej, can rack up a win or two or even win the series due to MAF's recent playoff record and that may have been the most uneven series in people's eyes. Outside of that, all the other series' seem close and I feel that there isn't a bad team in the playoffs (besides the division that is the Metropolitan).

I don't think there will be a sweep. The Penguins were 5-0 against the Blue Jackets this season (4-0 against our backup goalie, mind you). It's unlikely they'll go 9-0.

The Habs might actually be the favorites in their series against the Lightning. But there's no way any Habs fans whatsoever could possibly leave out the thought of what happens when a goalie gets hot. I'd look out for Ben Bishop.

if you're looking out for him, look towards the press box.

Lightning are better than the Habs with Bishop but having to go Lindback makes this a push at best for Tampa, possibly (probably) a nudge in Montreal's favor. Tampa nabbing home ice is what will possibly have to be the saving grace here.

Correct. The Beej have been CCSLC's favorite team for over a year. "New" does not apply.

And one of my favorite times of the year starts today. Best of luck to everyone and their teams. Except Montreal.

Lightning are better than the Habs

In all fairness, I think talentwise...it's a pretty even matchup.

1-0 Blue Jackets.

Habs/Lightning tied at 1, after 1.

Why are the Jackets/Penguins playing in a bowl of piss?

Probably the same reason the Steelers play in a turd casserole every fall.

Talent-wise, yes. Cooper gives Tampa the edge compared to Therrien, but like I said, a lot of this is probably negated by Bishop's injury.

Montreal has also controlled the play in this game so far, which is a surprise given the 5v5 numbers from the regular season meetings.

The Test Tube on the power play!

And here I thought I was the only one who called him that. Anyway, his goal was huge.
