Well it would be nice but two felt good enough that i won't be disappointed if there isn't a third.

Did you hear about the retired proctologist? He spent 40 years saying "what's a place like this doing in a girl like you?"

There is no doubt that they are in the running this year. But man, three? Whew! It's a long shot!

lol! You got me there. But, while statistically speaking each year has the same odds, the core ages which makes it harder to repeat.

Frankly, since my Flames didn't show this year I'd like to see Washington finally get one. They've earned it.

Ovie hasn't got it in him. He has gone into the playoffs umpteen times even with a president's trophy winner and didn't get past the second round.

I think Ovechkin gets too much of the blame for the Caps past playoff failures. He's actually been very productive in the post season over the years, putting up 46 goals & 44 assists for 90 points in 97 games. More often the not the problem has been the goaltending, defence, or secondary scoring.

He's had a few gafs along the way but he definitely doesn't shoulder the blame. His point totals aside, his passion for the game and his leadership through action is exemplary. I can't help but feel that one of these years the luck will turn for that team. And luck plays a tremendous part of winning the cup. Any one of the top half dozen teams has a real shot, but if that was all it took then why do so many teams come out of nowhere to win cups? Dumb luck and a hot streak at the right time is why.

I think for the first time in my life I'm going to cheer for Washington from the start of the playoffs! lol!

But back to the topic at hand, I have no illusions that Pittsburgh can't threepeat. They are still the real deal.

Oh well, we won two in a row which is rare itself; three is almost unheard of. And for the first time in the Ovechkin era the Capitals get past the second round.

I like the Pens, and normally I would be cheering for them in this match up, but I couldnít decide who I wanted to come out on top this time around. I would of loved to see Sid, Geno & company three peat and cement their dynasty status...but at the same time, I really wanted to see Ovechkin finally have some playoff success, he deserves it! Heís been a beast most of these playoffs, just like he has most playoffs in general. He either scored or set up the winner the last 3 games. All coming in either the dying minutes or overtime!

Iíll be rooting for the Caps from here on out, although I have a warm spot for the Lightning as well with their 5 ex-Rangers (including their past 2 captains in McDonagh & Callahan). Iím a big fan of Dan Girardi, would love to see him win a Cup.

I suppose I will also be pulling for Ovie and co. even if just so i can say it took the cup winner to eliminate my team.
