There's the regular season comparisons for something to ponder. Of course, the playoffs are a new ball game, and many times the regular season stats can be damned. I'm not going to say much more except:

- I love hockey. I really love playoff hockey. I can't wait to see the towels waving, the atmosphere, the panic, the heart failure, the screaming and yelling, the jumping up and down with glee, the alcohol spillage...

- The Score Predicting Wizards list is still in full effect. For those of you who are new here, I'll give you a quick rundown on how to get points. You get nothing if you only guess which team wins. You get 1 point for the correct score, 1 point if you predict the correct game winning goal scorer. You can get 2 points if you correctly guess the correct score and winning team. You'll earn 3 points if you guess the correct score, team and GWG scorer. It's not as easy as it seems. The current leaderboard is on the lower left sidebar on the main page.

-GO CANUCKS GO!! Enjoy the game, everyone! Yankee will have a game thread up about an hour before game time.

-Yankee also has great previews of the Kings' offence and defence and goaltending in case you missed them. Know your enemy! Fight the war fuck the norm!
