The second round opener went on Friday night, with Ray Whitney scoring the winning goal in overtime, and the Phoenix Coyotes win game 1 in their series against Nashville.
Andrei Kostitsyn scored one of the Predator goals, assisted by another ex-Hab Francis Bouillon.
And Ray Whitney, overtime hero, is a fine example of what a good stick boy can become, as he once did the job for the Edmonton Oilers.
Next up are the Caps and Rangers, plus L.A. in St. Louis. I don’t know who to cheer for. Maybe a New York – Los Angeles third-round matchup.
Remember when our team played in the second round and beyond. Damn.
