Looks like one of my first-round predictions has failed.
This just goes to prove what I've always said about the regular season vs the playoffs....you can be the "best team" in the league...President's Trophy winner...even set a NEW record for most regular-season wins...but you can STILL get swept in the first round by the second wild-card.
LA did it to Vancouver in 2012...and went on to WIN the Stanley Cup.
Congrats to John Tortorella (Yes....THAT John Tortorella) and the Columbus Blue Jackets for playing David to the Tampa Bay's Goliath....an impressive effort by a hungry group.
It will be interesting to see how they fare against the Bruins or Leafs.
As I DID predict (although not in 4 games) the Islanders have eliminated the Penguins....SWEPT them, to be precise.
