    obviously late here but on scout’s honour this is cut/pasted from an email to friends earlier this week. looks like i’m already off on the Sharks “sweep” – ha…

    Caps over Habs in 6
    Devils over Flyers in 5
    Sabres in 6
    Pens over Sens in 7 <–tempted to pick upset

    Sharks over Avs in 4
