Good luck Canucks, Blues only looked good 2 games out of 9 these playoffs. 

I don’t know why they started Binnington.  Oh well we will have a new season soon enough anyways!  Blues got their  magical cup run last year.  Super hard to repeat that.

He's one of those players that really stands out when he's on the ice. It's like he's in 1.5x motion compared to everyone else.

Tried the NHL Bracket Challenge, went 2-6 in the opening round. I'm usually terrible at series predictions, but that may have been an all-time low. (I only got Vegas and Colorado right, picked too many underdogs).

So with that, I boldy predict:

Tampa Bay in 6

NYI in 6

Vegas in 7

Col in 6

Of course I have almost no confidence in any pick except Colorado, they look solid.

MacKinnon is absolutely filthy, when hes on the ice I don't take my eyes off of him, I will watch every single move he makes. He's so quick and explosive with that 6th sense all elite players have, it's hilarious to watch defenders try to defend him.

And he's a good dude to boot, was very friendly when I met him at the World Cup of Hockey

No, best GM that ever existed (which is why Stevey Yzerman will do the same with Detroit)..

Dallas vs Colorado on NBCSN!  

Crazy game!  Stars scored 2 goals in 43 seconds on the power play.  Tied 2-2 in the second period.

I have a feeling this series is going 7 games.  It seems like the most competitive series right now.
