For the last 15 years, Donnie Sweeney has graced the blue line for the Boston Bruins.
I am going to miss the guy. He wasn't the best player, but he was a guy you root for. I met him once in his second year or so while he was doing the Bruins' Wives Carnival. He was terrific with the fans and a class act.
Boston over Carolina - Boston has too much depth for Carolina, and they have Chara. Washington over Pittsburgh - Ovechkin takes round 1 in what will hopefully be the first of many playoff matchups with Crosby.
