It isn't a surprise that any of them made the play-offs but it is a very surprising final foursome in the West! The year of the underdog?

Nashville are this year's one to watch.

Very happy that the Coyotes are through, even though they're probably heading to Quebec regardless.

Yeah, as a Ducks fan I'm well aware of how effective the Preds game is - they always beat us! But I wouldn't discount the Blues continuing to ride their remarkable season or the Kings who have a lot of talent throughout their roster and importantly a tremendous netminder.

Big game for the Devils tonight. Losing to the Panthers would be humiliating and will probably mean Parise will be leaving us too.

Really hope we can bounce back and force another game 7 in the east.

Given that Ireland isn't exactly a hotbed of hockey it wasn't a bad assumption to make.

yeah the west semis should be very interesting, can see the preds winning in 5 or 6...

but the other 1 is nearly impossible to call as its going to be lucky bounces that win that 1, the blues have 2 very good keepers and kings have quick, going to be a low scoring 1 in my opinion, last 2 reg season games finished 1-0, with 1 of them going to a shoot out...

devils panthers tonight should be a good 1 with it probably going to game 7...

it will be interesting to see who comes through in the east with it still possible that 5,6,7 &8th seeds making it through to the semis, surely that would have to be a 1st?!

Still. Preds will win the Cup this year. Certainly better than every team in the West.

Don't think we'll pose much of a threat next season. Playoffs, and probably division title, though. We need a decent Luongo trade this summer.

Only Boston and Chicago being eliminated this week will make it better!
Guttless performance by the Canucks. Utterly terrible to go down to LA like that. They had 4 lines of depth last year and now they struggle to get consistancy with one. There are a few players that need to look themselves in the mirror. Losing to Boston last year cant be an excuse for everything. They didnt deserve to progress. Best of luck to the Kings

They should shift the Luongo contract asap, Schneider and Lack 1/2 for next year. Still cant blame Luo for what happens in front of him but the cap space would leave lots of options for AV

2-2 after two periods in the Devils-Panthers game. If Arron Asham got 4 games for his attack on Schenn then Scottie Upshall should be looking at something similar for punching Bernier in the back of the head twice whilst face down on the ice. Disgusting.

For sure, nothing could keep me away from this game. Really hoping tonight is the night when our front lines start kicking into gear.

Last couple of games they have shown signs of getting into it more, with Sequins OT goal in D.C hopefully the weight is gone now and the goals and confidence will start to flow. This is gonna be a tough game, with a lot of nerves.

We gotta stay out of the box, stay calm and disciplined, while playing strong and physical. BRING IT ON !!!
