So, tonight could potentially see the end of 2 more 2nd-round series, with the Canucks and Predators being the only series where there wasn't a sweep. Some people see this as a bad thing for Vancouver since being the only team not to finish the 2nd round by sweeping their opponent shows them as weaker. I don't agree with this, mainly because of the matchups and results in the other series. For example, San Jose and Detroit went to OT twice already in 3 games so far, and all their results have been 1-goal games. San Jose is lucky to be leading 3-0. Our series is very similar to this, with the only difference being that Nashville got a lucky bounce in OT that Detroit hasn't had yet.
Before I go off on a rant, here are today's games:
5:00 pm Flyers vs Bruins Game 4. Last year, with Boston up 3-0, this was the point where the Flyers started their historical comeback to win in 7 games. However, having that happen 2 years ago between the same teams in the same round? It would truly be historical if that kind of luck came about again. Viewable on CBC, Versus and RDS.
