The Friends with Numbers are back, with a recap of the 1st Round of the NHL Playoffs; we take a look at what interested us, and what the main takeaways were from the opening round. Then, we give our predictions for Round 2, and break down each of the four matchups. 

We would love to hear from you, the listener, for suggestions on future topics of discussion. Rather than us just being in our own little world, we'd like to make this as interactive a show as possible. Feel free to tweet at either Dimitri or Cam .

I'm surprised about your comments regarding Pens-Ott. I think any analysis should take into account the difference in play between Fleury and Vokoun. Certainly the Isles outchanced the Pens and IIRC Corsi/Fenwick showed this, but Fleury was so abysmal that he was allowing pucks to go in that weren't even shots on net.

I think if Vokoun would have started the series, it would have been a sweep, five games at most. The Isles controlled the play, but I doubt they would have gotten 4 goals a game vs Vokoun.

If Ottawa trades chances vs the Pens (with Vokoun), I don't see it lasting 7 games. Anderson is great, but I think the Pens match up better vs Ottawa. The Isles exposed the Pens with their speed and Ottawa lacks that to the same degree.

Should be a great series and you do a great job with the podcast and site. I just wish you posted more often!

Wanna cause some fighting in your picks during the podcast?

Get someone from reddit's /r/hockey who will fight analytics with: heart, clutch, truculence, peskiness, and character.

I've heard some analysts say the pens will win because the pens are more pesky than the sens.
