Second Verse, Same as the First

O hai guys. I'm in the 2nd round. Proof that goalies can still be good at an advanced age.

Staying up to watch a double-OT game that didn't start until 8:30pm EST because NBCSports is stupid will do many things to man. One of them being making him forget to write an FTB. I am that man. This is that FTB. Tonight starts the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

In the West:

#2 St Louis Blues vs. #8 Los Angeles Kings

#3 Phoenix Coyotes vs. #4 Nashville Predators

In the East:

#1 New York Rangers vs. #7 Washington Capitals

#5 Philadelphia Flyers vs. #6 New Jersey Devils

Who ya got? Who's your Conn Smythe favorite after Round 1?
