Ok, who among you thought the Pens would be playing the Habs in round 2?


And would have home ice advantage for the rest of their stay in the Eastern Conference playoffs by this point in the playoffs? I just wanted to call you a LIAR!

Now that we've gotten that out of the way...allow me to marvel at how much easier the Pens road back to the SCF looks than since two weeks ago, when the Devils, unbeaten against the Pens this season lurked as a threat, and the Ovechkin led Capitals juggernaut stood in the way.

Jaroslav Halak is getting fitted for his halo in Montreal right about now, but you guys might want to take up a collection and send him, as well as Brian Boucher a thank you gift for their effort in clearing major obstacles out of your team's way.

Doesn't mean that the Pens will still be standing, defending their crown in the final round of course, there's still a couple of tough rounds to play before they get to that point. And frankly, if Detroit doesn't get there (which I don't expect the Red Wings to do, for the record), I'd be rooting for the Pens if they did. Especially if it's against Hossa, again. Not necessarily because it's Chicago, but because it'd be funny if Hossa lost in the SCFs in a row.

But first you gotta get past Saint Halak. You might want to talk to Caps fans before you get too overconfident about this series.
