The HABS swept the Bolts (Les habitants de Montreal) and my son is ecstatic.  Sharks and Kings game is rather enteretaining!  And yes, I am staying up to watch it.  In fact, I made the mistake of eating a crap load of Easter chocolate, and may be awake a lot longer than I anticipated.......

A local writer brought up the fact that in the history of the Stanley Cup playoffs no team who has been beaten like the Kings were beaten in games one and two of a series has ever come back to win.  Once a team took it to a game 6 but that is as far as it went.  Here's to that streak continuing!
