Let the trash talking begin! All 16 playoff teams are now set, though seeding has not yet been finalized. If the Coyotes lose one of their next two games, tomorrow's Kings / Sharks game will be for the Pacific Division. Coyotes play on the road against St. Louis today and Minnesota tomorrow at 5:00pm Pacific. This means the Kings and Sharks will know if the game will be for the division by face off or shortly after. What an exciting end to the regular season.
Though I'm a Sharks fan, I really hope that Ryane Clowe can resist the urge to play the puck from the bench this time. I was pretty sure he was going to be fined or suspended for that stunt, but it looks like the league is just calling it a blown call. Funny... I was just talking to my friend about the stupid penalties Clowe takes hours before the game yesterday. I like the guy though. Gritty and productive. His stupid poke check overshadowed the fact that he and Joe Thornton both had Gordie Howe hat tricks last night though.
Anyways... the real season is about to begin and it looks like it's going to be a good one. I already know the preferred team of a few of you, but who is everyone else rooting for this post season? Go Sharks!
