After an exciting first round that saw plenty of overtime action, highlight reel saves and ridiculous goals, it’s time to move on and enjoy Round Two of the 2010 NHL Playoffs
Here’s some thing’s we’d like to see happen in Round Two:
– Joe Thornton learns how to score in the playoffs; Unfortunately he was taught by Dan Boyle, and it ends in the back of his own net.
– The San Jose Sharks forget to book their flights to Detroit. Hey, it’s not their fault! They just haven’t made it through the first round in a while… give them a break!
– The Boston Bruins get tired of Carcillo and Zdeno Chara throws round like a rag doll, McCabe anyone? *Okay this one might actually happen..
– Even though they were no where close to the playoffs, Brian Burke decides to hold a news conference to inform the media on how his team’s golf game is going.
– The Ottawa Senators still manage to have a better golf game than the Leafs, even though they’ve had a month’s less practice. I guess that’s where Daniel Alfredsson and Milan Michalek for the first round.
– Marc Savard returns from injury, determined to prove he isn’t made of glass and goes after Mike Richards. He was wrong and shatters into a million little pieces. Game 1 is delayed by an hour as the rink crew picks up the pieces.
– The Twitter account of Allan Walsh breaks and the hockey world is free from …”Halak it, Halak it a lot!“… and his comparing of his client Jaroslav Halak to the greats like Patrick Roy and Ken Dryden.
– The Vancouver Canucks announce that they’ve legally changed the name of forward Mikael Samuelsson to Mikael Sedin, but Mikael decides to play like Daniel in the first round and forgets how to score.
– Contrary to recent reports, Steve Yzerman does not join the Tampa Bay Lightning as their GM, he instead suits up for the Redwings and leads them to a sweep of the Sharks and scoring a hat trick in all four games.
