The habs are done, etc etc. That's great. They were pretty banged up (Lang and Markov were big parts of that team - Thanks Grabovski!) You don't win it all in the first round. Here's the last bit of Habs stuff and then it's on to the next round.
- 7th-seed New York Rangers: up 3-2, playing Sunday. When they score they beat Washington. Lundqvist is a great goalie, Tortorella is losing his mind, and Avery is a joke. Their top scorer is a three-way tie between Naslund, Gomez, and Dubinsky, who all have 1g 2a across the stat line. Their fantasy stud is either Henrik Lundqvist, 3 wins, or Sean Avery, 24 PIMs. No one has scored more than one goal. They play the Caps at home in MSG next, and I could see them taking the series then.
- 6th-seed Carolina Hurricanes: down 2-3, playing Sunday. Cam Ward won a conn smythe in 2006 when they won the cup and they've got some of the same roster. Then again, we've got some of those guys, too. Top scorers: Joni Pitkanen (3a) and Chad LaRose (2g 1a). Ryan Bayda and Eric Staal also have 2 goals. Their fantasy stud is Cam Ward or Chad Larose. I haven't heard of Larose either. They play the Devils in Carolina next, and Brodeur might be too much for them to overcome. This has been a great series, though, I suggest you watch it.
- 4th-seed Pittsburgh Penguins: beat Flyers 4-2, waiting for the next round. Dominated today with 5 unanaswered goals, otherwise it was a very even series with the flyers. Marc-Andre Fleury is playing very well, as is Malkin and Crosby. way better since Gonchar's been back.
