THE MONKEY SPEAKS: LIGHTNING-FLAMES FINAL
bite my banana!
I don't want to hear any more predictions in these NHL playoffs, because Maggie the Monkey has nailed it down: It'll be the Tampa Bay Lightning versus the Calgary Flames vying for the Stanley Cup.

I've made it a point to check in with the monkey's prognostications come playoff time. She's the macaque with the most!

Maggie's looking good in the early going, with Tampa Bay kicking off the Eastern Conference final with a 3-1 win over Philly. Tell you what: If the Lighting does advance, meet the Flames, and win the Cup, she should be welcomed to come live in Tampa Bay. I think she'll find Lowry Park Zoo, deemed the best family-friendly zoo in the country, to her liking.
