This seems to be an appropriately themed headline given the day...

After all the incredible hockey the past couple of days I was sitting here wondering how there were any teams left to provide such quality entertainment.  Then I looked at today's schedule & realized that there are four potentially great games today as well.  I probably say a variant of this every year but I can't remember a first round where all the teams are well matched up with similar teams & there isn't an expected sweep (prior to the start last Wed anyway*) anywhere to be found.

I love this time of year so much.  And a big thank you to the scheduling gods for spacing today's games far enough apart that it will be possible to watch each (regulation) game in it's entirety. And to think that people were feeling sorry for me last week because we have no family in the area & Mrs RT has to work on Easter ... yeah poor me, stuck in front of the tv today because there is nothing else to do.....

*I thought the only potential sweeps going into it based on the regular season strengths & who their opponents were were Boston & Pittsburgh.  However both Columbus & Detroit have shown that they aren't going down quietly.  Today's BOS/DET game should be really interesting to see.

Other than Montreal Ruining my spread I'm doing pretty damn good in my leauges.

Would kill to see the Wings and Blue Jackets advance.  Just to piss off a good amount of people.

Stupid 9am games.  Going over tom mom's house, so I won't be around much for the early games, but I should be back for the later 2.  On the plus side, starting drinking later means I won't be passed out before the end of the last game.  Probably.

Easter Sunday with playoff hockey. We grew up in a family where we could visit relatives AND have a TV in the living room/bedroom on for the kids and adults.

Damn Wings will make it interesting.

i think its an easter thing.  i wish more young guys would wear insane suits like grapes and that old drunk guy that does on-court nba interviews. i forgot his name but its like he kept every suit he wore in the 1970s mothballed in storage and just emptied the storage space a few years ago.

Ugh, I'll never make it to the end of the Sharks/Kings game if those two twits make me start drinking right now...

Oh thank Jeebus, they're actually showing a game on the crappy Dish package where we're staying.

Protip: hiding eggs with money in the Smokey Mountain wilderness, pitting a visually-challenged autistic kid vs. his siblings isn't a good idea. Everyone hates me now.

Happy spring/Easter everyone.

Curious...

Do all the playoff teams' arenas need to reserve the dates for all the playoffs, all the Cup games, on the chance that they'll be playing them?

Wtf is Akeson doing in the lineup after his rapid play in game 1?

I thought it was a lame slash against the Rangers at first. At least the Flyers are having a good PK.

Phone meeting max is 5.
I figure if it was regular season it'd be 5-10.

Playoffs it's at most 3. Seabrook is a star, Blues are up two games to none, so they'll give him one.

Probably, they'd be stupid not to just in case.

/they'd also be stupid not to have backup plans/activities that can be implemented quickly if/when their team is eliminated

He would get nothing if he played for Boston

So Philly kills the PP and gives up one a minute later.
