## 2008 Playoff Pool: Day Forty

Ladies and gentlemen, we have our Stanley Cup final. It's the Penguins vs. Red Wings, which is a great match-up in my humble opinion. HNIC showed a little factoid about Sid the Kid getting the finals earlier than Gretzky or Lemieux. The Penguins turnaround has been fast and furious.

In the pool, Drew has first place locked up, but second place is a dogfight. Poolies, this break is an ideal time to audit your scores. Double check my totals, will ya?

## 2008 Playoff Pool: Day Thirty-Eight

Pop quiz, hotshot. What's the mathematical probability that two conference final teams, down 3 games to 0, come back and win their respective series in seven games? If my math is correct, I give it a 0.03221% chance of happening, and that's why you'll probably see the Penguins advance today.

That gave five is at 3pm, but Canada faces Russia in the IIHF World Championship at 1pm. Here's hoping it rains so I can justify a chunk of my Sunday in front of the boob tube.

## 2008 Playoff Pool: Day Thirty-Six

I remember the 1992 Stanley Cup Playoffs well. I remember it because Pittsburgh swept the Wales Conference final 4-0 against Boston and Chicago swept the Campbell Conference final 4-0 against Edmonton. That hasn't happened since and it won't happen this season because the Stars actually won a game last night to force a fifth game.

The battle for second in our pool is really heating up. Patino and Pops have 82 points apiece and Ryan and Alexi have 80. That means at least 5 people have a solid shot at making some cash.

## 2008 Playoff Pool: Day Thirty-Four

We might be looking at two conference final sweeps. Red Wings vs. Penguins would make for a pretty exciting final. Go Pens Go!

In the pool, the race for 2nd is heating up. Ryan currently holds down that spot with 79, Patino and Pops have 78 and Alexi has 77.

## 2008 Playoff Pool: Day Thirty-Two

I want to give props to all the mothers in our pool. Enjoy your special day, you're the grease that makes the world go 'round.

## 2008 Playoff Pool: Day Thirty-One

I watched most of the Battle of Pennsylvania and it was pretty entertaining. Forget Sid the Kid, this Malkin youngster is incredible. If Pittsburgh continues to get good goaltending, they might be unstoppable.

I would love to see Gary Roberts win another cup. 19 years between Stanley Cup wins might be a record. Has anyone gone longer between wins?

## 2008 Playoff Pool: Day Thirty

For the three of you still following the world's greatest NHL playoff pool, Drew is about to gallop far, far away from the pack. He got five points yesterday from the Red Wings and nobody else had more than one. Drew's going to win \$170.

In Nova Scotia, \$170 makes him a millionaire!

## 2008 Playoff Pool: Day Twenty-Six

I enjoyed that Pittsburgh game yesterday afternoon. The Rangers fought back to force OT and the Pens pulled it out in OT to end the series in five. I wonder how Sens fans feel seeing Hossa come through in the playoff clutch.

With the Rangers and Sharks exiting stage right, Marc and Ryan are down to two players. Drew has this locked up and the fight is for 2nd place. My money is on Patino.

## 2008 Playoff Pool: Day Twenty-Five

Last night, I had the delightful pleasure of greying out the Montreal players taken in our draft. They're done, having lost four straight games to the Flyers. I really feel for Habs fans throughout this great country.

In the pool, Drew has a slim lead over Marc, Ryan and Pops. I should be scratching off Rangers later this afternoon.

## 2008 Playoff Pool: Day Twenty-Four

This morning I had to drop my daughter off at her ballet recital. They're going to work out the kinks before we all show up to witness their grace. Walking the hallways of the school who should I bump into? Mr. 75 points, Drew.

We're not done the 2nd round, but this cat has tripled my output. He gave me a smirk, told me he's going to run away from the pack and then threw me a bone. He told me it's actually quite difficult to put up such a horrible score without the perception you're tanking. Yes my friends, that was the plan all along, and I succeeded in glorious fashion.
