2010 NHL Playoffs: Expect the Unexpected

May 4th, 2010 by Matthew Hogan Leave a reply »

If the 2010 NHL playoffs have proven anything thus far, it’s that you never know which player is going to step up for his team.

The first round and beginning of the second round have provided fans with surprise after surprise, as a new player seems to improve his game on a nightly basis.

The Boston Bruins would have had a tougher time against the Buffalo Sabres, and might not have escaped the first round alive, had it not been for Miroslav Satan.

It took a couple of games for Satan to pick his play up, but he has been on fire as of late. He has nine points in eight playoff games, compared with 14 points in 38 games during the regular season.

Satan had two game-winning goals in the first round, the first of which came in Game Four when he beat Ryan Miller with a nifty move in double overtime. The second game-winner was the series clincher.
