2007 NHL Playoffs Recap and Predictions - May 6th

1-2 last night. Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils were determined to screw up my predictions. Oh well, they got what they deserved, they are going home. Tonight Buffalo will send New York home. At home.

Tonights Game :

Buffalo Sabres (3) at New York Rangers (2) : Buffalo still hasn't performed as well as everyone had predicted this post season. I'm not suggesting that they will do it tonight, but they will play well enough to beat the Rangers and send them packing. New York has done a great job of playing with energy and containing Buffalo's forward lines. But it is over tonight.

Last Night Recaps :

San Jose Sharks 1 (2) at Detroit Red Wings 4 (3) : Home ice advantage seems to have turned the trick for the Red Wings last night as they again came back from a deficit to win their third game in this series. Detroit seemed to solve Nabokov last night as both Pavel Datsuk and Henrik Zetterberg managed a goal and 2 assists each to drive the Wings to victory. The bad news is that the Wings lost Mathieu Schneider to a broken wrist in the first period.

Ottawa Senators 3 (4) at New Jersey Devils 2 (1) : The Devils get sent home in 5 games as the Sens make it to the Eastern Conference Finals for the second year in a row. Ottawa simply dominated this series and the vaunted EGG line of New Jersey just didn't perform. Not to mention Martin Brodeur who didn't play at the level that we have all come to expect. The Senators dominated much of this game and earned their birth to the next round.
