One of my favorite times of the year

Playoff hockey time!!!

The Houston Aeros are up 1-0 in their first series of the AHL playoffs after beating the Peoria Rivermen 5-4 in OT. I thought they were gonna lose for sure since they were down 4-2 after two. Peoria came out playing very physical and in the third period the Aeros started playing a more physical style and put up the two goals that tied it within 30 seconds of each other.

The Stars play the Colorado Avalanche in the first round of the NHL playoffs. Playoff series between them are always heated, should be a good one. The first game is currently scoreless through about 12 minutes in the first period.

Call me a homer, but I think one of these teams will win their league.

UPDATE: Stars down 4-2 with 6:30 left in the second *sigh*
