RE: Jayhawks Champions, Hockey Playoffs

Congrats to the Kansas Jayhawks for winning the Men's NCAA Basketball Championship game in Overtime against the Memphis Tigers. A great game between two great teams.

So what's up next in sports? Well there is the Woman's NCAA Basketball Championship game tonight featuring the powerful Tennessee Volunteers against the Stanford Cardinal.

The NHL Playoff seeding is set! The Montreal Canadians are the top seed in the East and they will face the Boston Bruins in the first round. The Pittsburgh Penguins are the second seed and they will face the Ottawa Senators in the first round. The Washington Capitals are back in the playoffs, as the Southeastern Division Champs they will face the Philadelphia Flyers. The New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers will face off as well. A lot of great rivals meeting in the East in the playoffs. Only 10 points separate the 8 teams in the East so the playoffs should be wide open.

In the west, the Detroit Red Wings will face the Nashville Predators, the San Jose Sharks will meet the Calgary Flames, the Minnesota Wild will meet the Colorado Avalanche, Anaheim Ducks will face the Dallas Stars.

The NBA will soon conclude it's season. 12 of the 16 playoff spots are taken and four remain open as the NBA season goes down the stretch.
