Round 2 Links

The Blades begin the second round of the Kelly Cup Playoffs tonight against the Reading Royals. To get you ready I'm tossing some links your way. But first, a little Ramones to get pumped up!

- You can find the series schedule here. Four games at home woohoo (I miss the first one though, boo)!

- Here is Woody's series prediction, which I definitely stand behind. If you haven't read it yet, you really should, the numbers are very interesting. By the way, some people are total comment buzz kills, sheesh.

- (I love how fast Wikipedia is, even on minor league hockey stuff) Here is the Wikipedia link for the 2010 Kelly Cup Playoffs. And here is their awesome playoff brackets to help break everything down.


I avoided this last time, but I guess I'll throw out a prediction. Remember I'm not a sports journalist, a hockey expert, and I'm a terrible Everblades homer (see #4).

I'm calling a Blades win in 7 games. It's going to be a nasty, dirty series. At least one game will go to OT, and at least one player will be fined and suspended for a game. This is going to be a tough series for the Blades. If they can find what they had last game, and keep it up, they will win this series by the skin of their teeth. Of course, I'm silently praying the Royals have a playoff implosion (think the Hurricanes last season).

For tonight's game you can listen on your radio, AM 1200, or you can check out these sources.

- The Fox Sports feed, Hopefully,  it doesn't cut out during the last minute of a really intense game (why yes, I'm still mad about that).

- To watch the game live, you can check out the B2 Network. You will have to pay, although it's only about $8.00 for a game, not too bad. If only I had better Internet...

- You can also follow me on Twitter, for up to the minute updates, and my usually snark.

- This is the ECHL's daily schedule and scores page where you can check out the score sheet and game summary.

As always, check back here for the live blog, where I'll re-cap each period.
