4. Pittsburgh vs. 8. Montreal
How did Montrear do it? They knocked off the mighty Capitars!, so vely unberievable! Now they must pray the defending Stanrey Cup Champion Pittsburrrgh Pengrins. I don’t think Montrear can win this time but they will defintery try their vely hawwwwwdest. In the end, Sid Closby and Evgeni Markin will score too many goars on Harak and the dream season will be arr ovel. Pens in 6
6. Boston vs. 7. Philadelphia
Boston Bluins against Phiraderphia Fryers, such a vely ord time matchup!! Two rong time rivars who don’t rike each othel vely much and don’t care arot for smiring. Bruins and Fryers both pulled the mighty upsets in round one and now they meet each othel when they arr praying their best hockey of the season, and smiring the hawwwwwwwwdest. I pick the Bluins to win because they have the giant Charrrrra. He is like giant Mothra man from movie I watch rast night. He breath heavy fire out his nose, but he is still such a vely vely nice gentre man, arways skating and smiring. Bruins in 5
Prior the start of the first round, Caps sniper Alexander Semin stopped by DKM and gave his series predictions. Alex was almost dead on, correctly picking 7 of the 8 first round matchups. He even called the upsets by the Bruins and Flyers. The only error was picking his Washington Capitals to win, but the Caps were stunned by Montreal, an upset that no one could have seen coming. Understandably, Alex was pretty upset following the loss and told DKM that despite his success, he will not be making predictions for the rest of the playoffs. Luckily, our old pal Richard Park of the New York Islanders has answered the bell and DKM is proud to present his second round playoff predictions. Today Richard starts with the Western Conference semi-finals:
1. San Jose vs. 5. Detroit
Ohhh wwwrow this shourd be a vely enteltaining series. The snapping Shalks agaisnt the mighty Led Wings. After a srrrow start, San Jose finarry ovelcame their prayoff deamons and defeated the young Avaranche. Meanwhire, Detloit needed seven games to beat a hungly Phoenix team. This series should be vely vely crose, but I am going to pick the Led Wings. They have so many tarented prayers and so much expelience and arr arways smiring so vely hawwwwd. Wings in 7
2. Chicago vs. 3. Vancouver
Wrrowwww! This is another hawwwd series to carr, unberievble!!!! These two teams don’t like each othel and don’t smire at each othel vely much. Last year the Hawwwks were abre to beat Vancouvel but this year things will be so vely different. Luongo is like big giant Godzeeeera in net and move even slower than whale but he so big that he brock arr the pucks that come his way. Sedin’s arr the smirriest of twins and that helps them to be the friedriest teammates; arways passing and smiring at each othel. So vely vely nice. Patlick Kane has the nicest prayoff murret but it will not be enough to beat the team in the nice brrue unifolms. Canucks in 6
Kane's murret shines rike gorrrd!!

With news from TSN.ca that Philadelphia Flyers’ winger Ian Laperriere will miss the remainder of the season, may wonder how the Flyers have reacted to the gritty winger’s injury. Fortunately, we here at DKM have the exclusive insider on the situation, with commentary from those inside the dressing room. If you haven’t seen the video yet, it follows the story after the jump.

The typical "Hockeytown" playoff crowd gets Joe Louis Arena rockin'
As NHL playoff action has continued to heat up, the series between the Detroit Red Wings and Phoenix Coyotes remains tightly contested at two wins for each team. However, an interesting sidebar has been the lack of support from the “fans” in Detroit. Not only is Detroit unable to sell-out their playoff games, but the few fans at Game 3 actually jeered goalie Jimmy Howard during an admittedly less-than-stellar loss. “Seriously, it’s obvious the city doesn’t care about this team,” Howard lamented, “and then the few token fans that do show up actually boo me? It’s retarded.”
After Sidney Crosby put together another dominating performance with two goals and two assists in Pittsburgh’s 7-4 victory over the Ottawa Senators in game 4 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series, defeated Sens players begrudgingly admitted that Crosby could probably beat the entire Sens team by himself. “Yeah, I’ll be honest with you, he could probably go 1 against 5 and still beat us. We don’t have a chance in hell to stop him,” said captain Daniel Alfredsson. “Coming into the series we hoped that we would be able to contain him enough that he would eventually get frusturated and get off his game a little bit. Well, its safe to say that hasn’t been the case. When I said he could beat us 1 against 5 I meant it. He could literally go on the ice by himself with no goalie and still dominate us.” Continue reading
We wants more fightin'!!
Fans of the Nashville Predators have begun voicing their displeasure with the lack of fights in playoff hockey as opposed to the regular season, and it has caused a major drop off in ticket sales for games 3 and 4 of the club’s Western Conference quarterfinal series with Chicago. “I don’t know what the heck is goin’ on with these here games,” said Preds fan Billy Ray Smith. “Normally there’s be lots of good fightin’, but in these games there ain’t none of that, and I don’t like it, I don’t like it all. Us folks come out to these games to watch some good ole fashioned fightin’ and when they’re ain’t no fights, it ain’t no fun for these here fans.” Continue reading
