The Pittsburgh Penguins blew a three-goal lead and lost game one to the Philadelphia Flyers. This isn’t good, this lead-blowing, as Habs fans know all about, but I think the Penguins will regroup and eventually eliminate the Flyers. Of course I’ve been wrong before. I remember when I was excited when the Habs got Rene Bourque.
The Canucks bowed 4-2 to the LA Kings in their game one, and as I sit in a hotel room in Anaheim, I can clearly hear Canucks fans far and wide whining about how it’s the same old song and dance. The Canucks, as most of you are aware, have been dismal failures in the playoffs, time and time again. I’m weeping tears of joy at this moment.
And Nashville beat Detroit 3-2 with rookie Gabriel Bourque notching two of the Preds’ three goals. Hey Nashville, wanna trade Bourques? We’ll even throw in Scott Gomez and a Mike Cammalleri jersey to sweeten the pot!
