Back to the Rangers/Flyers and the division... What kind of reward will winning the division bring? A first round matchup with the streaking Devils? You guys can have it. GLADLY. The Devs are 9-0-1 in their last 10, and with the NHL slowly allowing the clutching & grabbing to return I really don't feel like watching a boring first round.

If the Rangers win the division the Flyers get Buffalo, who are really struggling. If the Devils leapfrog the Flyers, then its a Flyers/Rangers first round. I'd be happy with that. And no, not a flame... it would be a good series. I'd just rather face Lundqvist after a few weeks off than Brodeur who is on fire.
You're right about ending up against the Devils by winning the division (if) but at least by winning the division we get home ice for at least the 1st round. Very important imo esp in hockey. But like I mentioned, even if we play the 8th seed, it's not a given. Although Brodeur is on a streak, he's not the same Brodeur 4-5, or even 2, years ago. He's still very good but a lil beatable now. Heck, Esche can go on a streak himself. We'll see about Lundqvist. Hopefully he gets a game or two to tune up before the playoffs. Good luck

i dont think home ice is that important in ice hockey. having the crowd behind you is wonderful, but not everything. its a lot easier for a road team to play an away game in the nhl than it for any other sport.

GO FLAMES GO!!

Never loved the Canucks and the best hockey i've ever seen "live" was in 1989 when the Flames won! From Calgary and always a Calgarian! Good luck in the playoffs!

Started watching the Flyers in 1976-77, so I've never seen a Cup. And I won't be seeing one this year either. Waaay to inconsistant.

The easy pick would be Detroit - which, by the way, must have a time machine at Joe Louis Arena. Isn't Stevie Y 85 years old now? Anyway... Detroit is known for putting up big regular seasons and then getting bounced in the playoffs. I'll go out on a limb and predict a conference Finals of...

West : Calgary vs San Jose
East : Carolina vs NJ

Cup Finals: Carolina vs Calgary

Cup: Carolina

Congrats to the Devils. They certainly earned it. 11 straight wins
My Blueshirts are limping into the playoffs on 5 straight....losses
But you know what? I can't complain. Heck, the "experts" (admittedly, I was one of them) didn't give them a snowballs chance in hell and to actually contend for the division on the last game of the reg season is a huge achievement. Whatever happens, this season, in my book at least, has been a success. I'm looking forward to the second season...

At my office we always have a little tournament each year, and it goes like this...

Predict the winner of each series, along with the number of games they will win in.

Scoring:
In Rounds 1 & 2, 1 point is awarded for picking the correct team, 3 points is awarded for picking the correct team AND number of games.
In Round 3 2 points are awarded for picking the correct team and 4 points for picking the correct team AND number of games.
In Round 4 (Stanley Cup Finals) 4 points are awarded for correct team, 5 points for correct team & number of games.

No points will be awarded for picking the correct number of games, but the wrong team as the winner.

Whomever has the most points at the end of the playoffs is the winner. For now, the prize is a new BMW. Whichever model you choose - courtesy of E90 Post - or bragging rights.

Round 1 picks must be posted no later than FRIDAY 5:00 PM EST Note: Only pick winners for round 1. Do not predict all teams right to the cup.

Matchups:

Eastern Conference ~
#1 OTTAWA vs #8 TAMPA BAY
#2 CAROLINA vs #7 MONTREAL
#3 NEW JERSEY vs #6 NY RANGERS
#4 BUFFALO vs #5 PHILADELPHIA

Western Conference ~
#1 DETROIT vs #8 EDMONTON
#2 DALLAS vs #7 COLORADO
#3 CALGARY vs #6 ANAHEIM
#4 NASHVILLE vs #5 SAN JOSE

Anybody here in Socal know a good spot where I could possibly catch the Ranger game this saturday??

I was thinking of maybe hitting up the Irvine Spectrum. The Fox Sports restaurant might have it on but im sure if it were on they would have the game on one of those little ass tvs in the corner....without the sound. Oh well, any suggestions??

Coolios, thanks puck. I just found out that the ranger game (along with other games) will be on nbc this saturday, just a matter of which game nbc is going to show though. So i might just stay home and hope its the ranger game they broadcoast over here in socal. Otherwise, its off to the spectrum.

Wow, you're one devoted Ranger fan How'd you end up being a Blueshirt fan when you're in Socal? LOL.

HAHa thank you! It should be a great and exciting series, as is every game the rangers are up against the devils. But I was born in queens,ny and I moved out here 2 years ago for school purposes. So I pretty much grew up watching the Rangers on msg. I remember even when I got here, the first thing I did was call Time Warner to see if I could somehow get the MSG channel out here....then bitched at them when I couldn't.
