Playoff Hockey Is Here!

Tonight kicks off the 2007 NHL playoffs. The quest for the Stanley Cup. And probably another year of the Cup going to some non hockey town that nobody cares about. (Tampa Bay?! Carolina?! Really now...)

Some good hockey though out of the gates: Ottawa beat Pittsburgh 6-3, although Crosby did notch his first playoff goal. Fleury got pulled though, so that could be tough for Pens fans. Then there's the better game to watch - Nashville vs San Jose. As I write this, they are tied at 4 and in the second period of overtime. Nashville tied it with less than a minute to go in the game, and now the next goal wins the game. Elsewhere, Dallas and Vancouver are going at it (Go 'Nucks!), and Minnesota and Anaheim start their series as well (snore).

Of course, I'm cheering for any Canadian team to win, but either way, the first round is always a good time to be hockey fan. Plus I get to watch teams other than the usual Toronto and Calgary that CBC shows. It's about the only time of year I need the picture-in-picture on my TV :)
