NHL Playoffs Begin Tonight

Five former Sea Dogs are in the hunt for the Stanley Cup.

Tonight, Tomas Jurco's Detroit Red Wings begin the playoffs against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tomorrow, Jonathan Huberdeau and the Florida Panthers begin their series against the New York Islanders, Charlie Coyle and the Minnesota Wild face the Dallas Stars and Stanislav Galiev's Washington Capitals take on the Philadelphia Flyers. On Friday, Simon Despres and the Anaheim Ducks take on the Nashville Predators.

It was another good regular season for former Dogs in the NHL, highlighted by Jonathan Huberdeau, Gerard Gallant and Mike Kelly helping the Florida Panthers win the Atlantic Division.

Mike Hoffman also had a good season, despite being in the Ottawa Senators' dog house at times. Stanislav Galiev, although he only played in 24 games, helped the Capitals win a league high 56 games.
