NHL LogoThis year, three of the four NHL Conference semi-final matchups are going to the seventh and deciding game, with the other (Chicago Blackhawks over Vancouver Canucks 4-2) going six. All the teams are matched up as evenly as even can be. Other than San Jose’s first round gaffe (top seed), 6 of 8 Conference semi-finalists ended in the top 4 of their Conference and therefore are seeded 1-4.

There is little I enjoy more than watching playoff hockey (especially if it is my team), but, between tonight (Pens versus Caps) and tomorrow night’s double-header, hockey lovers should revel in the 3 seventh games. My hopes are on the Canes, Ducks and Pens. Personally, I would enjoy seeing the Canes take Lord Stanley 2009.
