If it hasn't mentioned "Vancouver" or "St. Louis" since Sunday I haven't really been paying attention. Such is life. But there's still a lot of great first round games out there so take your night off and watch others bleed and take bad hooking calls. Check out rest of the warring SB Nation sites too:
Thoughts: Part of me wants the Flames to win just to get the Hawks out. Part of me wants the Hawks to win because rooting for Calgary is just disgusting. The majority of me wants the United Center to be hit by a comet.
Thoughts: Seriously? You can't honestly be rooting for Detroit. There's only one option in this one.
Thoughts: I dig that these guys can't stand each other and they should easily be able to top 20 penalties that the Canucks/Blues amassed last night. I don't really care who wins, but I would like to see Chara maul someone, even if it's a fan. Perhaps a child in a wheel chair, that seems about right.
Thoughts: I wish this game wasn't on so late because it should be the best of the bunch and at least come close, if not surpass, the Habs/Bruins in terms of hate and a smashmouth style of hockey. In most cases I'd go for the 8th seed, but not Anaheim. A tip of the glass to the Sharks obliterating them.
