This night belongs to Tyler Ennis and Jerred Smithson, as Nashville and Buffalo both go up 3 games to 2. Philly punished rookie sensation Sergei Bobrovsky by deciding to return to last year's playoff duo, and now they find themselves on the brink of elimination. Well done Buffalo.
Nashville beats Anaheim: This series went from 50-50 to 65-35 in favour of Nashville. Good news for anyone who does not own any Ducks in their playoff pool. The Jonas Hiller vertigo story doesn't get enough coverage, as it is likely to cost Anaheim a playoff run. Hiller was on a sensational post Christmas hot streak and suddenly disappeared with vertigo. The Ducks relied on offensive production to make the playoffs, but Rhinne-Emery is a serious mismatch. How much would the Anaheim Mighty Ducks love to have Sergei Bobrovsky right now? (Nsh leads series 3-2)
Buffalo beats Philly: Shame on the Philly Flyers for demoting Sergei Bobrovsky, who helped me win my fantasy hockey league. It's hard to blame them for wanting to go back to the tandem that took them to the finals last year, but they have ridden the Russian rookie hard this season. The odd part is that the team said he was #1 going into the playoffs, and he played very well. He only gave up one goal in the first game and got replaced with Boucher in game 2. I like Buffalo to win this series. (Buf leads series 3-2)
