    As much as the hockey has been great in the playoffs so far, as a Jets fan I’m seriously eager for their series against the Oilers to get started. Tomorrow night can’t come fast enough!

    As far as tonight goes, Kucherov will surely be mega chalk after he blew up in G1. Whether you play him or not is going to decide how you approach that game.

    Hoping for Pacciorety news as late as possible so that if he plays there’s a showdown edge in the late game.

    Likely going to run another blog back after last night. This time I went 0-3 in snakes. Was looking good then the MacK show finished me off. You live and you learn.

    As for tonight, I’m loving FLA again, gonna hammer some PIT, and finish off with VGK. Would like Malkin to play but doesn’t look good. So I have PIT, FLA, and VGK. Not really jumping out on any limbs unless you think TB wins again. I can’t see NYI doing it again…

    Crazy how quickly things can change in showdowns. Ended up cashing 50% of my lineups in WAS/BOS after being being around 10% going into OT. On the contrary, had a lineup that was 5th in the COL/STL game going into the 3rd that ended up not cashing at all.

    Yep, you’re in for a wild rollercoaster. My strategy ended up being fine, but maybe not optimal. I hate COL or EDM SDs. MacK and McD are always 70%+, and always optimal. If you play full COL1, then it’s just a punt war.

    I completely agree with this. Diehard Oilers fan but there showdowns are impossible.

    Had a great night last night thanks to CAR3-COL1. Think you probably need some pieces from Tampa Florida and I’ll ride Vegas against Minnesota. Eventually the puck will go in for then.

    Yes, the real playoffs don’t start till tomorrow :). Not looking good though with PLD still not practicing and Ehlers likely out too.

    Seems like your wish was granted. He’s a game time decision, and VGK didn’t run line or pair rushes in practice. That screams SD!

    Got the blog up. Today it’s my picks for today, DFS plays, and more snake draft targets. I’m having fun with these and the playoffs so far. Good luck!

    Thank you! Just love me some playoff hockey. Good luck.

    Driedger is only $5000 in the showdown, guess they were counting on Bobrovsky starting.

    great special on chara on nbc sports right now. very intelligent guy.

  • Steverino01

    Took down some MIN/VGK showdowns 2 nights ago having both goalies and Talbot as my captain. Also had the line that scored the OT winner. Going with that lineup again. Here’s hoping for another 1-0 game.

    Fuggin’ Guylanders. I have Sorokin in. Had too much NBA and MLB stuff going on, seemed like he was going to get the start.

    I have 3 other none-NYI lineups going though.
