It was announced today Nathan Horton will miss the entire SC playoffs with a concussion.

I still think Boston can beat Washington, but now I wouldn't be surprised if they were upset.

I think FLA terribly overachieved for most of the season and benefited quite a bit from WSH struggling and TB losing their goaltending. I think their recent play going into the playoffs is more of what I expected from them this season. They did get the best matchup available to them with regards to NJ however. But, I think the Devils handle them quite easily.

Pens sucked against the Caps & Flyers in the regular season the year they won the Cup. Solidifying the reason why the regular season means jack.

Problem is that Brodeur hasn't had a good post-season in about 8 years and has been outplayed by his opposing goaltender regularly. While I think NJ has a definite edge on the Panthers overall, in net isn't one of them.
