That’s right! It’s playoff time in the NHL and damn if it ain’t the best time of the year to be a fan. (Assuming your team made it to the playoffs and actually has a snowball’s chance in winning a round or three)
The Sharks take on the Kings in Game 1 of the best Western Conference match-up this quarterfinals. Longtime followers will know that I’m partial to the Sharks, and even though I absolutely hate this match-up, because I hate the Kings and their stupid decision to become good, I’m taking the Sharks in 7. Yes, I think this will go all seven games, mostly because that’s the most annoying possible way for the Sharks to advance. Throw in an overtime game or two and you’ve got yourself a cirrhosis inducing first round.
Time to sit back, scream at the television, and enjoy the season’s best hockey.
