Round 1. East Coast Predictions

Bruins vs Canadiens
- Bruins are going to take it for sure. 1st seed vs 8th seed, and the Bruins have been dominant all season. This will still be fun to watch. The fights have been outa sight!

Rangers vs Capitals
- Capitals' Alex Ovechkin will stand on his head throughout the entire playoffs. Caps got em.

Devils vs Hurricanes
- This one will go 7 games i feel. Devils haven't been playing great but they will turn around and prove themselves by advancing past Carolina.

Penguins vs Flyers
- Penguins acquired some talent late in the season and have been on a tear. They will continue their streak straight through the playoffs, running on revenge-fuel from last year's near championship.

These match-ups are intense. Everyone should watch playoff hockey.

another anderson silva fight in the books. just as a heads up, i probably wont comment on any anderson silva fights unless its with gsp. besides the silva fight, there are plenty of great matchups, so ill try to comment on the 3 best ones. on with the fights!

Sam Stout Vs. Matt Wiman

coming off of his last 2 losses, sam "hands of stone" stout is a ufc veteran who is very prepared for this fight. starting off as a very competetive international kickboxer, stout adapted his kickboxing style to mma. stout is in the upper echelon of his class, and has fought some of the best fighters in the ufc's 155 pound stable. he will be facing "handsome" matt wiman. wiman is a tuf alumnus who had a very good showing on the reality show. wimans best attributes are his bjj and his standup, although he is also a great wrestler. although this should be a very close match, sam stout should be the better striker and as a veteran, should be able to avoid takedowns early. the outcome should come out as a unanimous decision for stout.

David Loiseau Vs. Ed Herman

oh man, this is gonna be a good fight. although he hasnt been in a ufc match since september 2006, david "the crow" loiseau has had quite a few fights, and has defeated former champion evan tanner and lost to rich franklin for the middleweight belt. his opponent, ed "short fuse" hermann, is a very good ground and pounder who gives great bjj as well. he has been in countless submission holds where he not only didnt tap, but successfully fought out of. this can be a close fight to call as short fuse is still not at the peak of his ability, but loiseau hasnt been in a fight in a long time. i believe although the first one will be back and forth, loiseau will end up catching hermann with a few of his razor sharp elbows and win by tko or doctor stoppage late in the 2nd.

Jason MacDonald Vs. Nate Quarry

another great matchup for this event. jason "the athlete" mcdonald is one of the top middleweights in the ufc. he has fought and beaten some of the best in his class, including victories over both ed hermann as well as chris leben. the athlete uses his great conditioning to outlast opponents, and is excellent at jiu jitsu sumbissions and defense. his opponent, nate "the rock" quarry is no slouch with his conditioning as well. he stays calm in his fights, as most ufc veterans do and hits as hard as a corned beef and cabbage dump day after st paddy's. most of his victories are by 1st round ko's and tko's. this one is hard to call as i give the standup to quarry, but the ground game to macdonald. i believe the outcome will be a mid 3rd round submission victory to macdonald.

hope you guys find this useful, and ill see you at the neckst event, gah.

Final thoughts on the nets

first of all id like to say;, i dont care what the over was and that the nets covered, this season was a disappointment. I think nets fan would agree with me that this team has some excitment between harris ,brrok lopez, and keyon dooling,,, so im going into next year with excitment. But for as far as frank goes, i have to think his time hear his dwindling down, Carter, god bless him, great guy, great player, but if hes still around when the nets make some playoff runs with this team, it will not be because of him. ok who else ummmmm i like bobby simmons, id like to see him back, sean williams needs to get it together but id like him to stick around, bad YIconomy, yi gotta go, and lets hope Rthorn does well in the lottery. sorry to make fun other YIs name, ive been listening to alot of skrewdriver

Its the Final Countdown!!!!!!!!

Not really, but a lot of playoff-clinching can go on tonight....

The Devils can clinch the Atlantic Division by getting a point against the leaves, or if the Flyers get under 2 points against the Panthers.

Flyers can clinch a playoff berth by getting at least a point against the Panthers, or if the Rangers get under 2 points aganst the Canadiens.

The Penguins can clinch a playoff berth by beating the Lightning. If they get one point either the Rangers or Panthers have to get less than 2 points. Or, if the Penguins get no points, the Rangers or the Panthers have to get 0 points.

Lastly, the Canadiens get a playoff berth by beating the Rangers, or if they get 1 point and the Panthers get 0.

So if you want to get any value out of watching hockey tonight you'll have to watch 4 games. Goodnight

ufc fight night:condit vs kampmann

UFC® Fight Night™ Condit vs Kampmann

this fight night brings in the start of another season of the ultimate fighter, the theme being usa vs uk fighters coached by dan henderson and michael bisping. let me just say this there is no way in heck dan henderson will ever lose to bisping. bisping is very talented, and an excellent technical fighter, but he's no where near hendo's level. ok on with this event

Junie Browning Vs. Cole Miller

23 year old junie browning is a very athletic and technical fighter. he has a great ground game as well as very good striking. his weakness as far as i can tell is his stamina. he is also easy to razzle, which can affect his game plan, if you press the right buttons. his opponent, cole miller i believe should have a slight advantage on the ground, being the better jiu jitsu fighter, but will have a disadvantage on the feet with junie being the better striker despite miller's reach advantage. cole does keep calm in his fights however, and this should help cole win this split decision at the end of the 3rd round.

Tyson Griffin Vs. Rafael Dos Anjos

dos anjos, a brazillian fighter is coming off his loss to jeremy stephens, and should be a better fighter for this event. he is a very quick and agile bjj fighter, able to switch positions quickly enough to catch his opponents off guard. his opponent, tyson griffin will be a handful for him though. griffin is one of the top fighters in his class, losing only to one time champion sean sherk (via decision) and jerseys own frankie edgar in one of the most exciting fights of that year. griffin has even defeated clay guida, which is no easy feat. he is a very aggressive fighter and can fight at a very fast pace throughout the entire match. i see tyson griffin winning this fight via tko around 4 minutes into the 2nd round.

Carlos Condit Vs. Martin Kampmann

for the main event, we have condit, a great fighter coming out of the wec, fighting kampmann, the dutch knockout artist. condit, a well rounded fighter with great endurance hasnt lost a fight since before january of 2007. most of his recent wins are via submissions. kampmann, the more explosive striker, will try to keep the fight standing, as he will have the advantage, although he has been working hard on submissions and defense, he will be no match for condits ground game. this fight will be hard to call, as if it stays on the feet, kampman should come out the victor. if it goes to the ground condit should pull off a submission. ill give this fight to kampmann, with a ko victory late 1st round/early 2nd round.

see you guys on the next live event
