Playoffs Notes

May 10, 2022

Nine of the twelve ‘offs series are (2-2) with all six of tonight’s game 5 tilts emanating from (2-2) series.

Last night while Colorado completed a prelims sweep of Nashville, only the Penguins, among the 5 teams up (2-1) “got the cash,” as they routed the New York Rangers.

Meanwhile Golden State (5-0) at home and (7-2) overall in these ‘offs, no covered Memphis (Grizzlies) to lead their “quarter” 3 games to 1. So it was a bad night for the two Tennessee playoffs teams.

Elsewhere the top ranked, President’s Trophy winning Florida Panthers got an all important tying goal from Sam Reinhart before riding Carter Verhaeghe’s second goal of the game at just under the five minutes gone point of overtime, to (3-2) Wash and square their prelim.

The Flames won at Dallas to tie their prelim, while the Celtics won at Milwaukee to tie their “quarter.”

An interesting note: The 2022 Celts/Bucks “quarter” has followed the same home win/road win pattern of the team’s memorable 1974 NBA final as it has been r/home/home/road and also the Bucks have won the games (1 and 3) that Boston won in that ’74 final.
