Jamie and I had such a good time out at this place today that I neglected my hockey duties. So, without further ado:
Penguins in seven. Yes, I know this requires them to win in Detroit on June 12. But remember, I was 6-2 in the opening round, 2-2 in the second, and 2-0 in the conference finals. My only worry is that the Penguins had such a merry time scoring bunches of goals against Carolina that they may have forgotten what the Capitals series was like—when every loose puck and every errant pass was potentially game-deciding. Also, we’ll have to see whether they’ve developed the virus that has devastated the St. Louis Blues for 15 years, namely, wingedwheelophobia, a rare but deadly disease that causes entire teams to lose all their large-muscle-group coordination when they gaze upon Detroit’s awesome logo.
But, still. Pens in seven. It’ll be a great day for hockey.
