Outside of the Habs/Lightning and Sharks/Kings...sorry Becky... these 1st round series' are about as evenly matched as we've seen.  It's been a long time since there was this much parity in both conferences this early in the playoffs

4/24/14   |   Debi_L   |   11790 respect

I don't remember being this focused on the playoffs in recent years.  For some reason I'm following each and every game, locking myself in my bedroom with the TV and changing channel obsessively between plays so I can follow every game.  My son invited me for dinner (he doesn't have cable) and I declined.  I think I'm going insane.

*sigh* That was awful. And then I keep letting myself get emotionally invested in these other games. It's like I'm TRYING to give myself an aneurysm.

Okay, I'm  just gonna throw this out there.  I know this is the playoffs (hockey) but once again I find myself so disappointed that players feel it necessary to purposely injure a player on the opposing team, to try to gain an advantage.  I have lost any respect I've ever had for any of those players.  Seabrook.  Roussel.  Perry.  Cooke.  
And I know my list will grow, unfortunately.

Well that Ducks/Dallas game sucked.

Blue Jackets not going down without a fight.  Columbus erases a 3-0 deficit and wins game 4 in OT.  Penguins/Jackets now a best of 3 series
