NHL Playoffs, Round Two

Here’s an interesting turn: The Nashville Predators are playing the Phoenix Coyotes for the right to go to the Western Conference finals.

BOTH teams have been threatened with moving to more fertile pastures in the very recent past.

Tonight, Phoenix won game 1 in overtime on a Ray Whitney goal by a 4-3 score. The Coyotes…who I believe are owned by the NHL…hold a 1-0 series lead. The Coyotes just eliminated the Chicago Blackhawks, while the Predators finished off the Detroit Red Wings in five games.

By the way, BSP did not have a post in honor of Detroit superstar Nicklas Lidstrom, a first ballot Hall-of-Famer and one of the great defenders of all time. He may have played his last game this spring. We’ll fix that soon enough.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
