Second Round Match-Ups
What a great round the first round of the NHL 2011 Playoff’s provided us! Everything was highlighted for us by the Vancouver Canucks clinching Game 7 in overtime on Alex Burrow’s final goal. We admit that the series had more story lines than a Stephen King novel and even intrigued Tara enough to actually watch and cheer on the home town boys through every game. There were many other great series during the first round that included Montreal’s loss to the Boston Bruins, leaving the Canucks as Canada’s Team to cheer on to the Stanley Cup Final.

Round One Summary
There was a great Tweet on Twitter that we read tonight and think it best summarizes the excitement we all experienced in round one. It was “Dear round two – we set the bar for excitement, beat that. Sincerely, Round One.”

Round Two Predictions
So in my round one predictions I (Jeff) went 4 – 0 in the Western Conference and 4 – 0 in the Eastern Conference, making me a perfect 8 – 0 in round one… just a moment while that sinks in!!

So here we go for round two my selections that are as follows:
Western Conference
Nashville Predators at Vancouver Canucks – Canucks in 5 (they may even lose game 1)

Detroit Red Wings at San Jose Sharks – Red Wings in 6 

Eastern Conference
Tampa Bay Lightening at Washington Capitals – Capitals in 5

Boston Bruins at Philadelphia Flyers – Bruins in 7
