It is great to be back in the post season. One thing to mention is that my traditional end of season report card will not be written until the Penguins finish their post season play. So, look forward to that, but hopefully not too soon. This season showed just how fast the evolution of the Penguins can occur.

Now, I am going out on a limb and offering my first round predictions. Here they are and hopefully I do not discredit myself too much, if I am completely wrong.

Eastern Conference
Sabre and Islanders- Sabres in 6
Devils and Lightning- Devils in 6
Thrashers and Rangers- Rangers in 5
Senators and Penguins- Pens in 5
Western Conference
Red Wings and Flames- Flames in 7
Ducks and Wild- Ducks in 6
Canucks and Stars- Canucks in 4
Predators and Sharks- Sharks in 5

There they are. Send me your predictions (pensfan17148@msn.com put "playoff predictions" in the subject line) and I will track them to see who will beat the blogger and who is best at predictions. Send me your round 1 predictions by 5 pm Wednesday the 11th. This is just a bit of fun and the winner gets bragging rights.
