Old Rivalries and New

Lew Serviss at the NYT Slapshot blog has prepared a breakdown of the first round:

Montreal Canadiens vs. Boston Bruins
After the first Thanksgiving at Plymouth Rock, the Pilgrims and the Indians rode into town to watch the Bruins face the Canadiens. Well, it sure seems like this rivalry goes back that far. The Habs and B’s will go at it for the 25th time in the playoffs. This time, it hardly looks like a fair fight.

Afternoon Line

via Bruce Garrioch at Off The Posts,

Asked what he thought about the Penguins tactics by sitting Sidney Crosby Sunday, Murray stated what I thought.

“I knew what was going on,” said Murray.  “You guys all know they wanted to play Ottawa. That’s fine. That was fairly obvious from the drop of the puck.”

Ducks Ready To Shift Gears

from Dan Wood of Ducks Blog at the OC Register,

The Ducks, who will return to practice Tuesday after taking Monday off, enter the playoffs without a Pacific Division championship to their credit, as they boasted last year, and seeded fourth in the Western Conference instead of second, as they were in 2007. Should they advance, they could have to open every series after the first round on the road, and potentially play any decisive seventh games on enemy ice.

In the minds of the Ducks, those negatives classify merely as minor annoyances. They’re in the playoffs, with the opportunity they wanted, the chance to win a second consecutive Stanley Cup. For all the challenges they have faced this season, the Ducks believe they have another gear, and will shift into overdrive now that the stakes are at their highest.

We’ll see.

A Point For Each Victory

from Jamie Baker at Seagate Broadcaster Blog,

Bob Errey was captain of the San Jose Sharks as the team prepared for the 94 playoffs. A couple of nights before the playoff series with the #1 seeded Red Wings began, Bob was laying in bed and couldn’t sleep. Bob had won a Stanley Cup while in Pittsburgh and was thinking about what it takes to succeed in the playoffs. After awhile he decided to jot down what he was thinking which he shared with the coaches and all the players. While many of these seem obvious, it’s the mental part of hockey that ultimately takes you to the top of the mountain….

14. Never out of a game (ie. high sticking major = 5 minute PP)
15. Have fun
16. Heart is more important than skill
