2nd Round Casualties - 2010 Playoffs
We're guaranteed that there will not be another Wings/Pens Finals, that's the good news.
The news that makes you scratch your head is... the Sharks actually made it out of round 2.
The BEST news is, I can still win money with Chicago still in this race.
And how about the fact that history really was made? Those commercials all said history would be made, and Philly helped make it true. Only two times before, and the most recent of the two being THIRTY-FIVE YEARS ago, has a team rallied back from being down 3-0 in a series to win in game 7. Philly just became the third team, in the entire history of the NHL, to do it. Boston became the third team to....well you know. Get the biggest proverbial kick in the balls a team can take. That's never happened during my entire existence on this earth, until today. Wow. The epic FAIL goes to Boston. In fact, I've been told the twitter fail whale wears a Boston jersey now.
Last year when the Ducks lost in game 7 to the Red Wings on an extremely flukey goal with less than 6 minutes left, I thought nothing could make a fan feel worse than that. Then Boston happened. So, in a way, thank you Boston. You just showed me things really could be worse.
