The Habs are 5-0 in elimination games in the playoffs. But, the Flyers are 2-0 when having the chance of eliminating their opponent. They were down 3-1 to the Washington Capitals in the Quarter-Final. They managed to win three games in a row to pull off an upset against the President’s Trophy winners.

Future of the Sharks?


There are going to be some people who feel that the San Jose Sharks should blow their team up after ‘another playoff failure.’

I don’t think that will happen.
