Craig Anderson almost beat San Jose who were head and shoulders better then Colorado when he was there in 2010, I wouldn't count the Sens out.

The Sens' minor league team is 1/2 hour from where I live, but despite that, and the fact the Sens won the season series 3-1, I've gotta pick the Rangers in six. Lundqvist is having a stellar season, and ya gotta love how Torts called out the preferential treatment of the Pens. The Sens will make this a decent series but Anderson won't outduel Lundqvist.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

Rangers in 7, and it's gonna be close, but Lundqvist will be a giant.

NYR in 6.

Rangers are my third favorite club. (Yes, I have a third favorite.) I'd kill for a Wings-Rangers SCF.

Even with the Sens record in the regular season vs NY, I think they will get swept. Rags in 4. They will probably lose next round though...

I really like Paul Maclean as I've followed him since he was the head coach of the Quad City Mallards in the United Hockey League in the early 2000's. However I'm not a Canadian Team fan at all so I'm gonna hope the Rangers can win and do believe they'll win in 5 maybe even 6. Would be nice to see the Rangers take the Cup if the Wings can't becasue that would mean that in the past 5 years there will be 4 of the Original 6 Teams Winning The Cup and all of them American Based Original 6 Teams as Toronto and Montreal are still struggling. Go Rangers!!

Ottawa has matched up well against NY this year. This will be a good series.

Even though the scoreboard looked bad when it was 4-0 the Sens had played a fairly solid game. They let a few defense miscues cost them and Anderson was doing some weird swimming on the first goal. I think they could turn it around and make this a competitive series.

I never thought that this game was going to be like this. Duby was pissed.

Carkner takes Dubinsky out of the game. Good trade for the Senators.

I can't remember the last time I've seen a player get a game misconduct for 3rd man in in the playoffs.

Wow... from what I saw the officials did nothing. Carkner doesn't challenge Boyle, he just went off. Started with what looked like a cross-check or hands to the face of Boyle, and ended with sucker punches to the face and then on top of him with punches to the stomach and kidneys. The ref just skates by, doesn't do jack until Dubinsky is forced to jump in.

NHL officials are a joke. Why do they break up some possible legit fights before they start, and then you get something like this, and they all step back. Dubinsky getting thrown out for doing the officials job is a joke. Can't wait to hear Torts. I'm pretty angry about this kind of moronic crap, and I don't even care about the Rags.

So Jones thinks there will be a suspension because Karkner punched Boyle hard in the head unlike Weber who didn't hit Z with that one punch very hard. Ok but what about the damn head slam????? But wait Boyle isn't hurt, in fact, he got in another fight. Boyle did the Maltby ragdoll as far as I'm concerned.

I think this was pretty brutal and definitely crossed the line, but a good point nonetheless. As soon as the NHL suspends Carkner, it'll become a more obvious crap shoot. Like you said, Boyle isn't injured, and technically, a punch sans gloves is a "hockey play", albeit very one sided and crossing the line in this case.

The mugging Z took from Weber is more suspendable then this, and yet this will get him some games that Weber didn't. And, shocker, bottom line guy on a big guy, versus top pairing big guy on top line small guy. Stay tuned...
