I'm so intelligent when it comes to hockey there should be a bylaw barring me from showing off like this. All of the pre-game talk yesterday was how Ottawa had all the momentum, how the Ducks defense was deflated due to Pronger's abscence, and how the hometown crowd was going to run amok with Alanis induced fever.

Who predicted a 3-1 series lead coming home on Wednesday for Game 5? Yes, probably your uncle. Perhaps your mom. Maybe even Paris Hilton. But mainly me. This is why I'm hot.

I got to get right into Don Cherry on NBC. Don, in no particular order, ripped NBC, Swedes, Dick Ebersol, the NHL, Gary Bettman and a large chunk of the continental United States. It was a thing to behold. Several of the 17 people who actually watched last night's broadcast might have been wondering who forgot to lock the front door of the local nursing home.
