I am currently following my dreams of writing about football, basketball, and hockey and enjoying the ride as a contributor to Sports Unbiased. God is good and has blessed me with great opportunities to grow and I hope that He continues to do just that. Be sure to follow him on Twitter at @bkrivas95.

Let me just say that the Canadiens got lucky. The Ottawa Senators had all the momentum, all the mojo, and all the reason in the world to go into Montreal and show the Canadiens what hockey is all about. Everyone saw it coming, right? Well that didn't happen. Ottawa scored first thanks to a Milan Michalek unassisted break in the scoreboard. Everything went smoothly for the visiting Senators the rest of the opening frame, but the second period was just sensational hockey -- there's no way around it. But on top of that, the Canadiens just unloaded on offense to keep the fans and energy in the building. After an intense ten or...

The New York Islanders had plenty of doubters come into the 2015 NHL Playoffs -- but they've made their presence known and they won't be going anywhere anytime soon. The Islanders upset the Capitals in the opening contest of the best-of-seven first round showdown by the score of 4-1. Getting the early advantage on the scoreboard was the key to victory for New York and Washington was never really able to get into a groove. Brock Nelson gave the Islanders a 1-0 lead just six minutes into the action of the first period. Marcus Johansson tied things at one-a-piece with under a minute to go in the opening frame, but it was all Islanders...

The battle for Canadian supremacy in the NHL doesn't go to the Senators for a crazy late season surge or the roaring Montreal Canadiens. Instead, it will swiftly go to the victor of the series between the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks. And here's why. Every time that these two clubs have met in the post season -- regardless of which round of the playoffs the meeting occurred -- the winner of the series has always gone on to be in the Stanley Cup Final. Whoa. Now look at this fun fact -- both teams aren't really sure what to expect from each other, let alone their own clubs. Calgary hasn't been to the playoffs in six...

Both the Blues and the Wild have had serious hot streaks worth admiring in the regular season, but as we all know, the playoffs (no matter what sport) always come out as a different monster. The Blues made their way to the top of the Central Division after the Nashville Predators help the lead for the majority of the season. And now with home ice on their side, the Blues are going to be hard to stop. The bad news for the Blues is that the Minnesota Wild are the one team that could take St. Louis in the first round and keep them home. In the season series between these teams, neither club has pulled away just yet, as they split the...

    The Jets have the Ducks' number, and that's a bit scary   The Ducks have a very difficult path to the Stanley Cup Final this year -- even the Conference Finals, really. Despite getting recognized as the top seed in the Western Conference, Anaheim must contend with the hottest teams from north of the border -- and I can promise you those teams will not go quietly. The Ducks are cornered with the likes of the Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames, and Winnipeg Jets. The Flames or Canucks will take each other out since they play each other in the fist round, but there's no ignoring Winnipeg. The Jets...

There are several reasons to love the first-round clash between division rivals Chicago and Nashville -- and believe it or not, a chance at the second round is last on the list. Instead, what awaits the hockey world is a battle between two teams that haven nearly beaten themselves into the ground. For the majority of the season, the Nashville Predators looked like they were untouchable -- at lest in their own division. Nashville continued to impress thanks to stellar defensive performances on the ice night in and night out. While this got many Predators fans back behind their team as a playoff run was all but inevitable, the wear...

Name: Vic Beasley College: Clemson University Height / Weight: 6'3'' / 246 lbs S.U. Rank: 1 Potential NFL Teams: Cleveland Browns, Washington Redskins, Indianapolis Colts Vic Beasley is a beast from the Clemson Tigers football program that will go very far at the next level. His tenacity, productivity, and football intelligence is already at an NFL-caliber level. Marking a return of a Polamalu-style of defense, Beasley has no problem backing up his trash talk with work and effort beyond belief on the field. Bottom line? He's for real. Here are three things that Beasley brings to the table for prospective NFL teams...

Name: Randy Gregory College: University of Nebraska Height / Weight: 6'5'' / 235 lbs S.U. Rank: 3 Potential NFL Teams: San Francisco 49ers, Pittsburgh Steelers There's no question that Randy Gregory is one of the better defensive ends in the draft -- it's a big and obvious reason he's in our top three at that position -- but like the other big names (Shane Ray, Leonard Williams), the question is where he fits in best, not if he'll go early. Both San Francisco and Pittsburgh have some issues they'll need to address on the defensive side of the ball in order to get things going the way they'd like to in 2015. That in mind,...

After a surprising 71-64 fall to the Wisconsin Badgers in this year's Final Four, emotions were obviously high for both sides but only one with consequences. In the press conference following the defeat that ended his Kentucky team's shot at perfection and a 40-0 record, Wildcats guard Andrew Harrison said something that goes to show there is some sort of double standard in collegiate as well as professional sports. And it needs to end now. A member of the media asked the Wildcats to talk for a moment about Frank Kaminsky, Wisconsin's big time star that proved to be one of the x-factors in the Badger victory. Wisconsin's win was...

Name: Shane Ray College: University of Missouri Height / Weight: 6'3'' / 245 lbs. S.U. Rank: 2 Potential NFL Teams: San Francisco 49ers, Cincinnati Bengals, Detroit Lions Aside from Leonard Williams, Shane Ray from Missouri is the second best defensive end available for NFL teams to pick up this time around. Coming from the same stomping grounds as former college standout Michael Sam, Ray looks to continue Missouri's dominance when it comes to producing star defensive players ready for a professional career. Here are three reasons that Shane Ray will have success come his way in the NFL: 1. Shane City San Francisco...
