HHT "Experts" vs SportsFed Bloggers: May 1st Update

As you already know (if you read this), the hockey bloggers in the Sports Federation are involved in a little prognosticate-off with the "Experts" from Hardcore Hockey Talk as part of The Score's Playoff Hockey Challenge with the goal to see who has the larger brains. 

At the end of round one, here's the main learnings:  A basketball guy is leading???... the "Experts" apparently don't know it all?!?... No quarter was given and none asked between Down Goes Brown and Ozzie as they are deadlocked and let's just say that there's no love lost between them

No changes in the standings since our last update but figured this would be a good reminder since the "Experts", especially, seems a little slow off the mark.  Here's the table:
