Round 2 FINALLY HERE, Alberni Wrestling Awards Night

FINALLY round two is here.

Does it feel like anyone else that we've been through what feels like an entire off season, just to get from one round to the next?

I guess that's what happens when you sweep though.

My round one predictions - Not bad. I lost out on only two series - On one it was a major upset, on the other, I PREDICTED a major upset. I guess I was just a little off on which top seed in the West I thought that would be knocked off.

Here's a link to my round one predictions. Not bad not bad..

On to the present...

FINALLY round two. From the Canucks website, here's the GAME PREVIEW and GAME NOTES

Of course you can get it all on THE PEAK, part of the Canucks Radio Network...We've got your pregame show at 5:30, with the puck drop and play-by-play shortly after 6:00pm.

Should be a beauty!

My prediction?

Well, I don't see the 'Nucks clinching the series in Chicago. So I'm thinking Nucks in 5 or 7 games. A coin flip says Nucks in 7. Final answer!

The other series? Wow, there are some beauties.

Wings vs Ducks - Ducks in 6

Caps vs Pens - Caps in 7

Bruins vs Canes Bruins in 5

Alberni Wrestling had their annual awards night last night. I think I have attended 5 or 6 of these nights now, and every year it's the same thing. I'm blown away with how well run and accomplished the club is, and how deep their history is. Another year, another feather in their cap, this time it was Olympian Travis Cross. The full awards list is below.

Congrats to all the athletes, coaches, volunteers, executive, parents, and on and on and on. It's a huge group!
