2007 NHL Playoffs Recap and Video Highlights - May 16th

An o'fer yesterday, okay I didn't make a prediction but I lost the transmission on my car and it's gonna cost me $2k. So I'd say that was an o'fer. The Sabres are on the brink of elimination and I can now see them heading quietly to the golf course. It looks like they have a transmission problem too, they can't get into 4th gear.

Tonights Game :

Buffalo Sabres (0) at Ottawa Senators (3) : Ottawa has managed to do everything that they identified as required to win this series. The Sabres have not. Simple as that. Much like my Taurus' transmission, Buffalo can't find their top gear and it is going to cost them a shot at the Stanley Cup. Ottawa will probably lose tonights game, merely as a point of pride for the Sabres. But rest assured, I screwed this prediction up, Ottawa will win the series in 5 games but lost tonight at home to Buffalo.

Last Nights Game :

Detroit Red Wings 5 (2) at Anaheim Ducks 0 (1) : Wow, Tomas Holmstrom and the Wings completely dominated the Ducks last night. Holmstrom had two goals before being crunched along the boards by Rob Niedermayer and Chris Pronger. Niedermayer received a 5 minute boarding penalty and was ejected from the game. To me it looked like it was Pronger who should have received the penalties and you can be sure that the NHL will be reviewing the play. I would expect Pronger to receive at least a 1 game suspension. Domink Hasek made 28 saves for his second shutout of this years playoffs and the 14th of his career.
