3-0 Leads Everywhere You Look

Wednesday, 30 April, 2008

Wow. I wasn’t expecting these series to be so lopsided in terms of wins. Pittsburgh, Dallas, and Detroit have 3-nil leads in their series. There haven’t been many games that were blowouts or anything, it’s just that the same team keeps coming out on top.

Detroit and Colorado have had a couple of one-goal games, and one game that was 5-1 Detroit. The series could easily be 2-1 Colorado, or anything other than 3-0 Detroit. The Red Wings have been the better team, for sure. Johan Franzen is on fire for them. They’ve played some great defense at the most crucial of times. Last night, Colorado had a horrible time getting their goalkeeper to the bench for the extra attacker because of Detroit’s pressure. Detroit is so experienced in playoff play.

San Jose and Dallas have played two overtime games, Dallas obviously winning both of them. Dallas continues to roll over teams, and prove doubters about their playoff possibilities wrong. This has been the closest of the lopsided series. Both teams have had a chance to win each game. The Stars’ leaders and best players are really stepping up to put their team ahead.

Pittsburgh and New York have not had as close of a series as the Stars-Sharks series has been. The Rangers just can’t seem to show up, while the Penguins do everything they can to get wins. They’ve blocked a lot of shots. They score timely goals. They kill penalties like their season is on the line every second. They want to win the series, while the Rangers have only had a few players show up and play hard.

I don’t know what to expect from the remaining games. I know that the three series that are 3-0 are toast. They’re done. Let’s hope the Flyers-Habs series goes seven games so we have something to watch.
