I can't find a matchup schedule for the first round can somone point me in the right direction?


It may not be up yet, but for each conference it will be 1 v 8, 2v7, 3v6, 4v5. Regular season isn't officially over till today, but everyone is clinched.

Looking at the match-ups reminds me, side betting is allowed in each rounds match ups. You set your own terms, as long as the other teams owner consents.

I will also run a contest here and there, just to keep things interesting. Contest 1 will go up today.Edit to add: some seeds and match ups may change, those listed were as of last night. Season has a few games left.

And I'm a DETROIT FAN. This is not fair. We need to be allowed to trade teams. .

Ok, contest time! Would have had this up sooner, but the wedding I'm catering turned into a shitshow.

Contest is open to all participants of the playoff game, as well as players from the 2008 game.

Post your picks for the 2 teams in the final, as well as how many games you predict the final series will take.

The player guessing the two teams correctly will win a mystery goodie bag from me. In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by closest to the number of games guess.

Here I was happy about having the Rangers, and see Washington beat them 4-1. This doesn't bode well for the first round.

I hate the Capitols.

For the contest I would have to pick Red Wings vs Bruins with the Bruins winning in 6 games!

Good luck to all participants with your random draw team and or the team you are a fan of.

The 'nucks look horrible! Not taking anything away from the play of the Kings, but Vancouver looks more like a eleven seed then the Presidents Trophy winner. Dustin Brown has been a beast for LA since the ASG! Did you not enjoy the skate pass from Carter last night? IMHO, he did that on purpose (other think not).

I have really enjoyed watching the Philly/Pitt and Nashville/Detroit series. Solid hockey all the way around.

I love first round upsets. They give the playoffs a whole different landscape.
