NHL Odds and Ends

This continues to be a theme that I have. Blog nonstop for a few days and then work derails the consistency. I always feel bad when that happens so here is another recap article.

The Red Wings are up 3-0 over the Stars while the Pens are up 2-0 over the Flyers. While I have caught bits and pieces of both series, I can say that the Pens and Wings have been the dominant teams in these series. The Stars and Flyers havent really had the chance to get the momentum and are just going to get blown out of the water. I thought that the Flyers were going to put up a fight and they still have a chance with the series going back to Philly. The Wings were dominant against the Avalanche and Osgood has been a rock in net for them. The Stars are on the ropes and may take game 4 but they dont have a chance in the series.

The Sharks fired Ron Wilson today. Wilson has been the winningest coach since 2003. His problem is that the Sharks havent gotten out of the second round of the playoffs. The Sharks have been good in the regular season but just do not have the fight in them to win in the playoffs. This was a good move for both sides, Wilson needed a change of scenery and the Sharks need a coach that can put some fight into the team.
