The 2012 NHL play-offs are shaping up to be one of the most unsuspecting ones ever. The LA kings (8th seed) is leading their series currently, 3-1 over the Vancouver Canucks (the number one seed). If that wasn’t enough, the Pittsburgh/Philadelphia series has combined for over 45 goals in JUST the first 5 games! Also, the NHL has seen one of the longest suspensions handed down ever. Raffi Torres got TWENTY-FIVE games for a COMPLETELY illegal hit on Marian Hossa (former Winterhawk, so I might be just the tadest bit biased). Marian was rushed to the hospital only to be released under his own power a short while later.
Also, in the WHL the Winterhawks are currently holding a 2-0 lead over Tri-cities (a TOTAL surprise), both wins coming in overtime and during or a after a penalty on them (the hawks were down a man for those of you are not hockey fans).
Please share your thoughts below on either the NHL or any other sport play-offs.
