Well the NHL Conference finals are set ... in the West it's (1) San Jose vs. (2) Chicago and in the East it's (7) Philadelphia vs. (8) Montreal. Tonight in Boston, the Philadelphia Flyers became the first team in thirty-five (35) years to come back from being down 3-0 in a best of seven series and win. The Flyers also had to come back from being down 3-0 to win with 4 unanswered goals and beat the Bruins tonight. That's pretty amazing, at least to me.
So now on Sunday, the Blackhawks travel to San Jose to take on the Sharks and the Canadiens travel to Philadelphia to take on the Flyers. One thing I'm pretty sure about right now, is the Flyers didn't plan on having home ice advantage for any of their playoff series this year. It's just been that sort of strange year in the the Eastern Conference playoffs. Funny thing is the way the Flyers and the Canadiens are playing right now, whoever wins their series is likely to give the eventual Western Conference champion a run for their money.
All that aside, I just have one question right now ...
Is it September yet?
