May 16: Matt just added his picks to our Google Doc. In they go.
Last round went pretty well, all things considered. Yeah, Montreal got nuked by injuries and a hot goalie, Boston required an historic third-period meltdown to avoid the dreaded 3-1 collapse, Pittsburgh only survived because the Islanders Pittsburghed it up themselves, and Vancouver managed to get swept in the most ironic way possible: taking too many penalties, failing to score, and screaming for Luongo to be put in net. But hey, all of us managed to do pretty well on our picks. Gerard’s clearly the big winner here.
Since there’s no rest for the weary (and because the NHL would like to finish before Canada Day), round two begins the night after a pair of Game 7s. I’m tired and sick so this is going to be super fast and superficial. Enjoy?
