The Sharks did it! Again, my prediction of winning in 6 games didn’t pan out, but I don’t mind. They beat out the Red Wings in convincing fashion (well, except for that 7-1 loss in Game 5–but we’ll just call that a fluke since the rest of the games were much closer than that).
Next up, Blackhawks. I don’t know much about the ‘Hawks other than we leapfrogged each other for 1st place a few times during the regular season. By all accounts, they are a tough team, and this series won’t be an easy one. But then again, I thought the Red Wings would’ve been a bigger challenge, but the Sharks proved me wrong with excellent play.
I realize I didn’t get this post up before Game 1, which the Sharks lost, but if the Sharks continue to play like they did in the Red Wings series and in the 1st period of Game 1, they’ll come out on top in 6. This will be the year we go to the Stanley Cup–I can feel it!
