Pens – Sens Game 1 and Other Playoff Predictions

4-0 = the shiz.

  • That goal by Petr Sykora to go up 2-0 gets eight phats for pure two-on-one perfect-shot goodness.

  • Marc-André Fleury’s performance gets fourteen phats.

  • Multiple fights? Surprising!
  • Martin Gerber gives up too many rebounds. Ray Emery mostly beats people up, so his goaltending value is dubious, but he does know how to keep the puck under control. And Gerber has a plain goalie mask: unless you’re Dominik Hasek, that’s a recipe for failure. This sure isn’t the Stanley Cup finals team from last year.

And now for my quick predictions:

Eastern Conference
PittsburghOttawaPittsburgh-Ottawa: 4-1 Penguins

  1. How sweet was it when Fluery check that guys undercarriage with his stick? Funny. I like that fact these Pens will fight. Wasn’t like that a few years back. They are a fun team to watch.
