I wanted to get this up over the weekend but my monitor decided to have a stroke, which put me out of commission for a little while.
Philadelphia scored on better than 1-in-8 shots, but while everyone was busy comparing Marc-Andre Fleury to various cheeses and kitchen tools, Ilya Bryzgalov posted the lowest Ev Sv% of any East goalie, 0.882. The Flyers’ second round opponent features Marty Brodeur, who at age 67, posted the best Ev Sv% in the East at .956. It may be a few more weeks before he can go back to telling kids to get off his lawn.
From that timeless classic of our age, Basketball: “Soon it was commonplace for entire teams to change cities in search of greater profits. The Minneapolis Lakers moved to Los Angeles where there are no lakes. The Oilers moved to Tennessee where there is no oil. The Jazz moved to Salt Lake City where they don’t allow music.” Add to that, “and they moved hockey teams to places like Florida and Arizona, where there is no ice.”
