Yeah, these guys don't like each other very much. I doubt the thug lines will be starting for each team tonight; however, I hope the hatred carries over nonetheless. Should be a great series.
Here's how we picked it. (Daniel and Kevin were unable to post bond and are still in jail.)
|New Jersey Devils vs. New York Rangers|
|Winner||# of Games|
GAME 1: New Jersey Devils at New York Rangers, 5:00PM on CBC, RDS, NBCSN
By the way, I'm currently on the East Coast. Watching games at 10:30PM blows. I'll take a 4:30PM start over this crap any day.
I'm not going to be opening a separate thread early tomorrow morning for Team USA's game versus Team Switzerland (hi, Luca Sbisa!) and Team Canada versus Team Belarus. Both Canada (playing at 2:15AM) and the USA (playing at 10:15AM on NBCSports) have qualified for the next round and these games are moot. Feel free to use this thread to comment on the games.
Quick Ducks Update: Goalie Iiro Tarkki has signed on to play in the KHL for two years. He signed a one-year deal with the Ducks prior to the 2011-2012 season and provided to be a solid backstop for the Syracuse Crunch.
