2010 NHL Hockey Playoffs Round One
Ice hockey fans have been treated royally to a fantastic first round of playoff hockey in April 2010.
Second seeded New Jersey Devils were upset by the 7th seed, Philadelphia Flyers and were the first to be knocked out of the 2010 hockey playoff series – in just 5 games. WHO KNEW?
- 2010 NHL Playoff Upsets – all from the Eastern Conference
- 8th playoff seed Montreal Canadiens beat 1st seeded Washington Capitals! OMG!
- Philadelphia Flyers beat New Jersey Devils 4 games to 1
- 6th seed Boston Bruins upset 3rd seed Buffalo Sabres 4 games to 2
- Other NHL playoff 2010 match ups were fairly expected results:
- The Western Conference’s 1st seed San Jose Sharks beat 8th seed Colorado Avalanche
- 2nd seed (West) Chicago Blackhawks beat 7th seed Nashville Predators
- 3rd seed (West) Vancouver Canucks beat 6th seed LA Kings
- 5th seed (West) Detroit Red Wings beat 4th seed Phoenix Coyotes
- The Eastern Conference’s 4th seed Penguins beat 5th seed Ottawa Senators
Round One is over as of April 28, the night the Habs spanked the Caps in what was the final playoff game for Washington. It’s the only match up that pushed the game 7 limit, and not many hockey fans expected this Canadiens/Capitals series to go this far. Ovechkin said Halak was rattled. FAIL!
