Get Ready for the NHL Playoffs! Hello? Anyone?
For those of you who don't live in Canada or love the winter, I thought I'd remind you that the NHL Playoffs begin today. I can count on one hand how many hockey games I've watched for more than five minutes this year, so you're not alone. I thought I'd round up some information from the web so you can catch up if you're interested. And if you have HD, hockey looks great. Besides that, playoff hockey is usual intense and entertaining because the crowd is in it. - ESPN.com's Scott Burnside gives us the top ten story lines to watch for. - The playoff television schedule from NHL.com (That's the first time I've ever typed that into any browser, by the way.) - Al Strachan contributes this series-by-series preview of the first round to FOX Sports.com. - Newsday's Steve Zipay offers another look at the opening round.
