DALLAS - MAY 12: Pavel Datsyuk #13 of the Detroit Red Wings scores a first period goal past goaltender Marty Turco #35 of the Dallas Stars during game tthree of the Western Conference Finals of the 2008 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at American Airlines Center on May 12, 2008 in Dallas, Texas. The Red Wings defeated the Stars 5-2 to set the series at 3-0 Red Wings. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)The Stanley Cup Playoffs are humming right along, with both Detroit and Pittsburgh holding commanding leads in their respective series. Once again, I really hope no one listens to me or reads my horrendous blognostications, as everything I've said has been a complete kiss of death. Let's wrap up what damage I've done so far.

CALLED BRIERE "DAN THE MAN" -- In 40:41 of ice time in 2 games, Danny has 2 shots, no points, a -3, and 2 PIM, as he's been hounded by Jordan Staal.

SAID FRANZEN WOULD "DISAPPEAR" -- Johan has been out since Game 1 with a concussion. (Hey, I was right about that one. No, I'm not proud of that.)

PRAISED MARTY TURCO'S POSTSEASON PERFORMANCE -- In 3 games vs. Red Wings, 3.71 GAA, 11 goals allowed on 86 shots (.872 SV%).

PROCLAIMED OSGOOD WOULDN'T STEP UP -- 1.33 GAA, 53 of 57 shots stopped (.930).

PREDICTED THAT DALLAS WOULD WIN -- They are down 3-0 and on the verge of being swept.

LIKED PASCAL DUPUIS -- 0 points, 4 PIM, 3 SOG.

SAID TO WATCH MODANO -- 2 total shots on goal (0 in Game 3).


In other words, I'm done with the blognosticating and I'm just going to watch hockey from now on.

Happy golf season, everyone!
