And the First Round is Done!!!

Marty Turco's shutout streak ended in the second period when Henrik Sedin scored at the 15:12 mark of the second period last night. Then the House of Cards came crumbling down for the Dallas Stars on Monday night. The third period was all Canucks and that was more than enough to eliminate the Stars by the end of the night. With only 46 selections made from the Big D, the Stars will not be sorely missed in the pool come Round 2.

Now, here's a look at the match-ups in the Western Conference in Round 2...

On Thursday night (on TSN), the Red Wings will take on the Sharks at JLA in Detroit. This should prove to be quite the series as both teams flexed some serious muscle in the season.

On Wednesday night, the Canucks travel straight to Anaheim to take on the Ducks for Game 1, which will be broadcast on CBC. The Ducks have had quite the rest, while the Canucks will be still flying high after their Game 7 win on Monday night.

Lookin' good there, TL. Obviously, there's gonna be a little bit of bias here, but luckily for me, there is good reason for it. The red light gets lit up for Trevor Linden, as he scored the GWG in Game 7 against the Stars, which puts him well in the lead for active players in Game 7 games, when it comes to scoring. A big three points for Linden in the pool last night gives him the Spotlight Player this morning, as most would think should happen.
