NHL Stanley Cup Playoff 2014 First Round Preview

20140415-154638.jpg

Another great NHL season is in the books. The majority of those who remain are the teams we expected to still be standing by the regular season’s end. Some have turned out to be surprises, teams that were counted out early in the season and made a swift turnaround to surge into the postseason. Given all the teams that will begin making a run for the Cup tomorrow afternoon, there is a strong potential for yet another great postseason.

Game Recap: Norfolk Tides at Gwinnett Braves 4/14

The Norfolk Tides lost the first game of a two game series against International League South Division opponent the Gwinnett Braves by a score of 5 to 4. The Tides’ record on the year is now 3-8 despite the early excitement of the starting rotation.

Mike Wright, the Tides’ starting pitcher, pitched well despite giving up 4 runs, 2 of which were unearned. In 5.0 innings, Wright allowed 6 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4.  This start was very similar to Wright’s first, though this was plagued by errors.

It was refreshing for Nat’s fans to have something to cheer about coming off a series against the Braves in which they were swept. The Nat’s certainly got their bats going tying a Nationals team record for most extra-base hits and triples tonight.

Round 2: Cyrus Kouandjio OT Alabama

Cyrus Kouandjio may be the most talented second round pick if he does indeed fall to the Redskins at 34. Kouandjio is a massive 6’7’ 322 pounds; that could help a Redskins offensive line that was undersized to fit Mike Shanahan’s offense and got pushed around far too often in 2013. The issue with Kouandjio is whether he can stay healthy and if his knee will hold up. Teams have mixed opinions of this, however, Dr. James Andrews says his knee is fine (same Dr. who performed RGIII’s knee surgery) so the Redskins would likely trust his judgment and not let Kouandjio fall past 34. He has the potential to be a steal and future star in the NFL, but potential to be a bust if his knee and health don’t hold up.

Recap of the Frederick Keys

The High-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, The Frederick Keys, started off the season with a 6-2 road win over the Lynchburg Hillcats. The Keys followed up by losing the next two games to the Hillcats. The Keys ended up winning the final game and splitting the series with the Hillcats, 2-2.

The first home game of the season for the Keys wound up being a disappointment, losing 7-0 to the Carolina Mud Cats, as the Keys only recorded 2 hits. This would be the start of a 5 game losing streak for the Keys, in which they would be swept by the Mud Cats and lose two more games to the Hillcats. However, the Keys rebounded with their most explosive game of the season so far, recording 16 hits, 12 runs, and committing no errors in a 12-6 win over the Hillcats. This allows the Keys to fight for the opportunity to split another series with the Hillcats tonight and hopefully provide them with a means to turn around their season. In order for the Keys to start a winning streak they are going to need to win a series and one run ball games, a feat they haven’t accomplished this season. Read the rest of this entry »
