Many Thanks To Rad and Brendan For Letting me Post again after how well the last time went LOL!
If The PLayoffs happened Today, March 7 2017 the Penguins Would square Up against The Columbus Blue Jackets. The Jackets are on fire This year sitting at 41-17-6 to The Penguins 40-16-8.
FAST FIVE: Predicitions for PIT vs CBJ:
1: Bobrovsky steals the show.
While we sit and argue who is better, Murray or Fleury… CBJ isn’t losing any sleep with their .929 SV (Murray currently has a less-than-ideal .925 SV)
2: Crosby steals the show back.
Crosby ends the season without injury and enters the playoffs healthy as a horse. After beating McDavid in points by a smidge near the end of the season, Crosby explodes in this playoff series – scoring a point in nearly every game, which leads to an impressive total considering:
3: Penguins win in 7
After a hard fought back-and-forth series the Penguins come out on top. Things may start rocky with a healthy Daley getting back to his feet again, but will ultimately end in glory.
4: Mike Lange doesn’t go to the hospital
Lange has reportedly fighting a battle with alcoholism for years, now. As his age catches up to him these can be concerning times for someone like ol’ Mikey. However, he will absolutely live on long enough to bellow out “THE PENGUINS HAVE BEAT THE COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS!” at the end of Game 7.
5: Penguins face off against Boston for Round 2, where they lose in 5.
The Pens stare down the Bruins and all the media focuses on their 2013 matchup where Pittsburgh was rather easily swept. However, after exerting all of their energy in the 7 game series with Columbus the Penguins helplessly find themselves outmatched and eke out a win in game 4, only to return to Pittsburgh and lose the series. The summer awaits, and the Pens now make the necessary roster adjustments that they weren’t able to during the regular season, like getting rid of Fleury, and Horny, and Ian Cole, and acquiring Shattenkirk.
