The first round was full of nail biters, that’s for sure. Four series, three of them in the east, went seven games. We almost saw another 0-3 team win the series. Boston won after being down 0-2 for the first time ever. And with a sweep, the Red Wings will be well-rested for the Sharks.
The Predators caught most of us by surprise, while the Canadiens, Sabres and Blackhawks nearly did the same. In fact, each conference’s semi-finals will feature a #1/#5 and #2/#3 match-up. So far, the series length is the difference maker, giving Derek a slight lead after the first round.
