The postseason’s here!

Here’s all the third round series

Rendered in haiku.

The Martin St. Louis Cup (Lightning at Rangers)*

I tried to jinx them

But the Rangers still advanced

This time they will lose


Bishop outdueled Price

Expect him to match Lundqvist

Bolts’ offence wins out

Battle of the Birds (Chicago at Anaheim)*

The two best teams meet

This one should be for the Cup

And very well could


We’ll all be watching

Kane, Toews, Getzlaf and Perry

But Hawks’ D is key

How Many Games Will the Winners Need?

Tampa Bay in 6

WCF goes the distance

Blackhawks in 7

Add to each preview:

“Unless a goalie gets hot –

Then all bets are off.”

All You Really Need to Know

Just one dirty play

Can win or lose a series

And spark years of hate
