Tyler Seguin is a healthy scratch tonight for the Bruins. Hey and Phil Kessel isn’t playing either! What a deal for the Leafs!!

That is all.

Tim Thomas was awesome last night against the Capitals. He stopped 38 of 39 shots, 13 in each period including multiple cross crease saves (as seen above).

The Favorite Underdog?

I just did a quick look of all the big media outlet’s predictions for Round 1 and it seems that the team most of them think have a chance to make an upset is the Boston Bruins. Not only did the Bruins go 5-2-1 down the stretch, but they led the season series against Buffalo 4-2. Check back in two weeks for my thoughts on this one; Should be the boringest (sp?) of the series.
