Before I begin my trek back to Dallas (bah!) today, it seems prudent to mention that things are shaping up for our round two satellite blogs. Rather than introduce/re-introduce everyone who's coming on, we'll mention them when they write their first post.
Amazingly, things are already started at three of the four series blogs:
Cornelius Hardenbergh of Hockey Blog Adventure is back for more Boston Bruins fun, which is greatness because his Boston-Montreal contributions were exactly what we envisioned for this idea in the first place.
Here's his post; here's the Boston-Carolina blog link.
Joe echoes a common CLS sentiment ("Fuck you Versus!") in his initial second round post for the Red Wings - Ducks series. He's another return contributor who did a great job last round considering the fact that it was a challenge to catch games in the Columbus-Detroit series.
Here's his post; here's the Detroit-Anaheim blog link.
Sha Sha of Vancity Canuck and The Hockey Bay is back as well, giving a taste of the Canucks-Hawks TV schedule as well as posting the Youtube video of a fight that was entertaining, memorable AND completely relevant to the series.
Here's the post; here's the Vancouver-Chicago blog link.
While we haven't posted anything yet for Washington-Pittsburgh, we expect there to be PLENTY to write about for Gary Bettman's ultimate wet dream.
Stay tuned, and update your bookmarks/RSS readers everyone. The second round looks like it will be a doozy.
