I Love Playoff Hockey!

Watch the video
While the old joke may apply here....
I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out
....it certainly shouldn't be the only thing you remember about a hockey game. The San Jose Shark's series battling the Nashville Predator's was a good one. They finished the series in five games avoiding taking it to seven. This gives them a few extra days for the bumps and bruises to heal before they take to battle in the next round against an as yet unknown foe.

The intensity of an already brutal 82 game season pales in comparison to the post season play. A team has to win an absolute minimum of 16 games to earn the Stanley Cup. The odds of that happening are fairly astronomical. That would mean that the competing team would have to sweep each of it's competitor's in their respective best of seven series'.
