Eastern Conference Playoffs

Postby Bob 0119 » Sat Apr 11, 2009 10:04 pm

The matchups for the Eastern Conference are:

Bruins vs Canadiens
Caps vs. Rangers
Devils vs. Hurricanes
Philly and Pittsburgh

If Philly wins tomorrow, they will be the fourth seed. If they lose it'll be Pittsburgh, but either way they will face each other in round one.

off the top of my head I think the Rags are the only franchise the Caps have eliminated more then once in their playoff history.
Bruce has the authority. When Bruce makes the decision, it's a Redskins decision.

Is our first game the 15th? All it says on NHL.com is that the playoffs in general start the 15th.
