So, three of my picks for the Final Four are now gone, including UCLA’s huge comeback to knock out Gonzaga. And if Connecticut and Boston College both lose tonight, all of my Elite Eight will be knocked out. In hindsight, it makes me glad that no one in my workplace asked me to get in a pool, because I know it would be wasted money.
Last night’s win by the Red Wings should be noted as a rather impressive one. It must be figured that the Sharks will play their hardest, given that they were in ninth place in the Western Conference heading into last night’s game. The Wings need to be good going into the playoffs, and shutting out a team fighting to get a playoff spot should indicate that a team is good. The defense was solid, and they’ll need to keep up that pace if they hope to win a Cup.
