This year’s eastern conference final match-up or the 2010 NCAA men’s hoops bracket? I’d actually vote for the hockey. No Washington or Pittsburgh. What!?!?
Halak again harnessed his inner Dryden and stoned the Pens. I found myself rooting for the Habs even though I wanted Pittsburgh to win. I like watching good hockey, and as soon as Halak returns to earth they will get demolished by whomever emerges from the West (if they make it that far). The Pens would be a worthy opponent. So while I love the upset and root for underdogs, intellectually, I know Pittsburgh would be the better team to advance match-up wise (and ratings wise for the good of the league). Oh well. Montreal did at least deserve the series win. And I get to watch Subban for 4 more games. I may have to buy a Subban jersey. Dude’s a stud.
