    Not too sure why the Bruins overtime goal was disallowed. Would have been a tough way to go out.

    Two huge goals by Zucarrelo in the 2nd period has the Rangers up 2-1. The King needs to hold his throne down and this team can move into the second round.

    I'm a fucking nervous wreck right now. Just when we thought that they'd pull it off, Washington ties it up.

    OVERTIME AGAIN!!! These games aren't good for your health.

    It was a better season than what was expected.

    Now the question for next year is whether the Leafs will become this generation's version of the 80s Oilers? Or will they suffer a setback, and wander off back down the ladder?

    Weird playoff rules. The NHL realigned into a four-division, two-conference system for the 201314 season. Under the new postseason system, the top three teams in each division make the playoffs, with two wild-cards in each conference (for a total of eight playoff teams from each conference). The format is division-based. In the First Round, the top-ranked team in the conference plays against the lowest-ranked wild-card, while the other division winner plays against the higher ranked wild-card. The second and third place teams in each division then play each other.

    It's annoying to me, personally. They realigned for rivalry match-ups/TV ratings but then you run into scenarios where two of the best teams in the league play each other in the first round, or a situation like the Leafs where they could have played the Bruins or Senators (rivalry games) but because of one loss they end up playing the Capitals (two teams that barely play each other).

    I should add I'm just using that as an example. Not salty after last night. You could say the same about the Nashville/Chicago series.

    Going to post the Round 2 picks shortly. Keep an eye out, pretty sure Round 2 starts tomorrow.

    Considering how Washington struggled to take down a team considered Penguins-lite, I don't see the Caps doing any better over the actual Pens.
