I'm quiet about some of my sports fandoms.  I live in a Philly suburb of New Jersey so I'd be crucified for liking The Devils, The Jets, and The Knicks.  Okay, I did trade up my Yankee fandom for Phillies fandom with no regret and I like The Union. 

As for the playoffs, although I'm a Devils fan I might have to predict Flyers in 6.  The Devils have been terribly inconsistent and are coming off a grueling 7 game series.  Of course, they won't just keel over and die. 

In the West, I'm cool with whomever since none of them ever won a cup.

Fuckin Caps can't get it in.... everything just bounces off.

My fandoms are mostly the Ravens, Warriors, and Caps. Currently between baseball teams.

Can you believe the Kings swept the Blues?  Man, that is one hell of a Cinderella story this postseason.  And The Devils are leading their series.  This postseason has been all about surprises, and the surprises just keep on coming.

I think the 'Yotes will best the Preds because they seem to be playing a lot more aggressively.  Rangers-Caps... that's looking to be a grueling one.

Kings/Yotes WCF, perhaps? GO KINGS. :P

(I don't really know why, but I can't stand Phoenix.)

Kings in 7.  One of the great franchises in any sport that's never won a championship.

If the Kings win the cup, I won't be upset.  After all, that franchise has never won a cup.  Of course, I'm a Devils fan so I'm rooting for them. 

Either way, the playoffs and this cup are pretty wild.  No one expected the 8th seed Kings to get to the finals so effortlessly.  And similarly on the east coast, nobody expected the Devils to put up the kind of fight that they have.  Neither team will keel over and die.  I think the Devils will push the Kings harder than any other team has this postseason.  This final will be a war of attrition, but that's familiar territory for the Devils.  I still say Devils in 7.

Congrats to The Kings on their first ever cup.  Guess The Devils just ran out of gas.
