The first round of the playoffs is over, and it was a doozy. The best part is, there are three rounds to go, and the hockey isn’t likely to get any worse as time goes on.
After the jump, it’s time to make Round Two predictions.

As the only Nation writer that picked the Hawks to beat the Canucks in the first round of the playoffs it is only just that we give them their props for taking the series to a G7 despite being down 3-0 in the series. Try as they might the Canucks could not completely cock up the entire series although they looked shakier than the dude in the picture above.

On April 29th, 1997 Todd Marchant blew past a stumbling Grant Ledyard and into the hearts of Oiler fans forever, when he ripped a snapshot past Andy Moog in overtime of game seven v. the Dallas Stars. Curtis Joseph made a stunning save on Joe Nieuwendyk earlier in OT, but Marchant's goal sent Oiler fans into a frenzy fourteen years ago, and anytime you mention his goal a true diehard Oiler fan can tell you exactly where they were when he scored.
There is nothing more exciting, nerve-wracking, gut-wrenching or better than GAME SEVEN; unless your team loses, then it sucks worse than walking in on your parents bumping uglys.

If 630 CHED was among the sceptics two years ago when I suggested Bob Stauffer could end up splitting his time between being an analyst for their radio station on Edmonton Oilers game nights and hosting a noon-hour call-in show across town at TEAM 1260, they aren't doubters now.
