Hi. My name is Kaleb Smith. I have been watching over the NHL playoffs for the past two weeks.

I was surprised by the Detroit-Anaheim series, and that it went to a seventh game.

Also, I was shocked by the Game One of the Red Wings and Blackhawks. The Blackhawks started out the game good, but Detroit got a little momentum at the end of the first period.

At the end of the second period, the Red Wings had all the momentum on their side. They did not allow the Blackhawks to score, and the Red Wings took Game One 5-2.

I am ready to watch Game Two and see if the Blackhawks will come off with a victory.

Where can I comment?
