NHL.com has the Bracket Challenge and I've set up a Blowout Bracket if anyone is interested, the League:Blowout Bracket the required Password: Puckhead

I typically do this every year and thought a Blowout Bracket was needed here is the link, this will be a Private League.

Good Luck!!

My Blackhawks are out, so I am rooting for the Sharks.

In all reality, anyone but Nashville.

Grubauer has had one of the best save % since Thanksgiving. Caps need to ride the hot hand, and he's been it. Holtby hasn't been himself this season.

I would have liked to see them start Holtby here for Game 1 at least. Sure, Gru has been good, but a nice Game 1 'reset' for Holtby would have been good for him, then go from there depending on what happens. He is the starter after all.

As long as Tampa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Nashville, Vegas does not win Cup....

Which means most likely one of them wins it.

I 100% support this. Hockey karma should not reward a team diving their way to a Cup sprinkled with the occasional cheapshot.

I hate it as a Pens fan .

Seriously though, Holtby has struggled badly as of late.

Created a bracket. Silly question, for the goals scored - do they want for the finals or just the final game of the finals?

Penguins essentially treating this game like skating practice on the Flyers. Man oh man.

Need any help in filling out the Tor. vs. Bos. bracket??

Good luck it's going to be a very entertaining series, I think both teams are pretty equal.

Hockey Play-offs are the most intense of all sports (to me anyway). I remember Doug Gilmour said about being in a play-off run (92-93) and he said that most guys will lose 15-20 lbs during the stretch ... Kerry Fraser screwed Toronto that year ... Go Leafs!

Unfortunately I do not. I think I picked the preds. I don't even have the Bruins out of the east.

5 minute major penalty against Columbus and Washington scores twice in the first minute of the penalty. This one could be over quick. Go Caps
