Tuesday’s Gone With the Wind

An interesting (for the most part) little bit of action played out last night, in terms of Western Conference teams.  Here’s what I thought of it…


  • CBJ/NJD – Well…at least the Devils are making things tough of Pittsburgh
  • DAL/NSH – Someone finally snapped Nashville’s six game winning streak…hooray
  • SJS/MIN – The Sushi broke out of its five game slide, Pinky wept
  • PHX/CHI – The Chickenhawks took first place, guess they want us in Round 1
  • ANA/CGY – Gander and I weren’t hoping for a Flames win…irritating
  • VAN/EDM – You go, “30th of 30 teams in the NHL”, you go.

And the standings heading into tonight’s action against the Blues looks like this…

Well wouldn’t this make for some interesting first round match-ups right now?  Everyone except for Nashville and Vancouver would be playing in (nearly) their own time-zone.  That’s un-heard of in the Western Conference play-offs.  Leastern Conference, you don’t know how easy you have it.
