Detroit vs boston, Pittsburgh vs Philly
Boston and Pittsburgh both out first round!

Hoping for the Pens but we all know that picking your poison isn't the way to go. It would be awesome if  Z can go sometime in the 1st round. Just stoked that the Wings have made the playoffs.

 

Can anyone revive the 09' Wings/Pens playoff Photoshop thread?

I don't know why everyone thinks Rask is godlike. I've seen him let in a lot of floaters

Pens.

 

But the fact of the matter is, that whichever one we get, even if we beat them, we're playing t'other in the next round.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

No. Not till the conference finals

Penguins lack depth but also have less balls than the bruins the bruins have alot more going for them at every level I honestly don't think the wings have them beat at any level on paper! I do think they have some advantages against the penguins

just happy to be in it really. We seem to have the Bruins # so they may be a little worried about getting us.

 

for once in a long time we can just go out and play as the pressure will be on either the Bruins or the Pens

 

as we are the underdogs. Im just excited for next season. The kids have a whole year under their belts and 

 

with the addition of 2 or 3 of the right pieces we can be back in the top 5 again and a real force.

 

Well done Babs and the boys, you've got in and all of us on these boards are proud of you as we had 

 

feared the run was over and to do it in the circumstances is a big bonus. Babs for the JA?

Boston...we went 3-1 against them and in fine fashion. I couldn't handle anymore of the NHL coddling the pens.

Initially I said the Pens, after all who wouldn't rather take their chances in a 7-game series with Fleury vs. Rask.  However, considering the Pens probably having everyone back (sans Dupuis), I may want to take chances with Boston.  We have a solid record against them this year and I believe our speed would give them trouble.

We are a combined 6-5-2 vs Boston, Montreal and Tampa. We are 2-5-2 Vs Pittsburgh NY Rangers and Philly. 

 

Although I like our chances vs Pittsburgh, the long run Boston maybe be better.

 

But then our team is completely different then our opening day roster..... so this is all meaning less numbers.... Maybe if I put it in a pie chart? :P

Well right now we got Boston.  All we need to do is to give Dats more of a break, give the likes of Helm, Legwand (Thank Goodness we picked him up!) Alfie, Kronner, Franzee (maybe he can find his lighter) the final two games off.  We need to coast these last two games, remain in 8th and take Boston to 7 games.  Pit would be an NHL and officiating circus and I would like to avoid that as long as possible.  Hell, maybe the #7 seed (hopefully Philly falls there, that would be a great series!) can beat the crap out of them and Skidney (I love that nick name!) can cry all summer long!

 

Here are my 1st round hopes!

 

Boston v. Detroit

Pitt v. Philly

Montreal v. Tampa (all ready set)

Rags v. Columbus

As fantastic as it would be to beat the Pens in the first round, beating the Bruins (especially if they win the PT) would be almost as good. On the other hand losing to the Pens would be much worse for me. I think our chances in either series are about the same. Add the O6 factor, it makes Boston an easy choice for me.

as much as I'd love to knock the pens out first round.... I'd really like to see pitt vs. philly again.

I dislike both teams but watching them meet in the post season is some of the most exciting playoff hockey imo

Oh it'll be exciting... If by exciting you mean hurling your guts out during intermission from all the stress.

We've played both teams well this season. But there's no doubt that Boston is a deeper team than Pitt (especially on the defensive end). And they have better goaltending. So if I had to choose I'd go with the Penguins. But I truly believe we could beat either team if we're healthy and playing the way we've played lately.

I think we could beat either ;-) probably come out of the penguin series healthier though with as physical the b's play...

 

I wouldn't exactly say that with the way Neal plays.

Okay people keep forgetting that Boston doesn't play the same in the post season as they do in the regular season. In the regular season they play a more open fast pace hockey, as soon as the post season starts they become team obstruction. The Wings don't match up well against a big team that will force them to go through their team to get into the offensive zone. That and unlike Flower, Rask is completely capable of carrying the Bruins any night they decide not to show up.
