Round two continues with a Game 1 and a Game 2. Not sure what the deal is with these uneven starts but sure, go for it.
Game of the Afternoon: #6 New Jersey Devils at #5 Philadelphia Flyers, Game 1, 3:00 Eastern, NBC and CBC
Unless, of course, you're rooting for the Devils, in which case, I'm sorry but we just aren't going to agree on this.
Philadelphia opened the playoffs with a
horribly played catastrophic goaltending nightmare gongshow sideshow very exciting series against the Penguins, and came out of it in 6 games thanks to the aforementioned bossitude of Giroux. New Jersey was the upset that wasn't, picked by everybody, and still took 7 games to defeat the Florida Panthers (and a 2OT goal from Possible Candidate To Steal Landy's Calder Adam Henrique).
Seriously, Henrique's a good player and I love Radar, but his linemates are leaps and bounds above Landekog's.
Each team one 3 games in the season series.

Game of the Night: #4 Nashville Predators at #3 Phoenix Coyotes, Game 2, 8:00 Eastern, NBC Sports and TSN. Phoenix leads series 1-0
Honestly, I didn't watch Game 1. NHL.com, take it away!
Having stolen Game 1 despite being outshot 25-7 after the second period, the Coyotes try to grab a two-game lead against Nashville, which shook off a week-long layoff by dominating the last 34 minutes but went home empty-handed when Ray Whitney scored his first OT goal in 17 years.
That's a long time yo.
