I don’t know if anyone saw this coming, except for the man with a worse nickname than Matty Ice. That person is Jonathan Toews, AKA Captain Serious. With that being said, game 7 of the van/chi series goes tonight and this series has just about featured everything, including blowouts, good goaltending, awful goaltending, comebacks, surprise starters and Joel Quenneville’s awesome mustache. We should be in store for quite the game today. I think that both teams will come out of the gates slowly, looking like the Devils. Things will pick up, and in the end I believe Roberto Luongo will show us why he’s considered one of the best goalies in the NHL, and lead the Canucks to a 3-2 win over the defending champs, and a date with Nashville in Round 2.
I think Montreal will force a game 7 behind the strong play of Carey Price and the Bell Centre Crowd, and since Chris Pronger doesn’t lose, Philly takes the game against Buffalo. Of course, if Pronger can’t go, then Buffalo’s chances improve greatly. They’ll need Ryan Miller to step up if they want to win.
