Big win for Phoenix last night to get their series off to a winning start in OT.

The Rangers - Caps game starts at 8pm Irish time this evening.

Two game-winning goals in three games for Chris Kreider, only the 3rd Ranger to ever score for the club before having played a regular season. Great story.

Nobody saw this guy coming...

great win for the kings there, quick was brilliant again...

Penners empty netter at the end was class(lucky)

king was lucky for the boarding on Pietrangelo could have been a double minor or major...

was as expected a hard-hitting low scoring game, going to be the series to watch id say!!!

Aside from the Flyers, can't see too many goals for the rest of the playoffs to be honest. Too much goaltending talent and form.

Flyers vs. Rangers needs to happen. It would be like Flyers vs. Penguins with fewer dirty hits and better hockey.

Mate of mine was at the Rangers game last night. Said it was mental altogether. Have it recorded myself. Hopefully, we can get a win in Washington and put it to bed. Don't fancy another game 7. Looks like it could be the Devils up next.

Cant get over how easy that series was for the Devils, feels like a sweep. Now bring on the Rangers! (after game 7 of course)

Los Angeles Kings 21/10
Phoenix Coyotes 3/1
New Jersey Devils 16/5
New York Rangers 16/5
Washington Capitals 10/1

current odds for the stanley cup...

8th seeded kings seem to be favourites with both west seeds favourites at the min. to lift the trophy...

be interesting to see how the finals play out in both conferences... think the east is ny to lose at the min but in these playoffs that probably means they wont win it...

cant call the west, kings have been very impressive only allowing more than 2 goals once in 9 games, killing 17 penalties against the blues scoring 4 shgs in 9 games...

quick vs smith will be interesting, 2 brilliant goalies....

I've read that a few times but still can't quite figure out what it means...

Hoping the Rangers win tonight. Be a good final with the Devils, I think Marty Brodeur must be in dream land, what a career he's had, and to be playing so well at his age, be nice to see him reach the final.

That being said, I reckon the winner will come from the Kings v Coyotes matchup. Kings have been very solid, both at the back and firing in the goals up front. If they get by Phoenix I fancy them to win it.

And so it is that there will be one Game 7 in the Conference Semi-Finals. Capitals had a pretty convincing 2-1 win over the Rangers last night. Excellent goaltending by Holtby yet again, who I now believe is 9-0 with a sub 1.50 GAA in games after a defeat this season.

Rangers will have to be slight favourites going into the Game 7 on Saturday night but I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Capitals took this one. Everyone has bought into Dale Hunters philosophy (even Ovechkin is blocking shots now, only had 42 in the regular season but has 13 in 13 games in the playoffs with significantly reduced ice-time) and the Capitals are a mean defensive machine now. 7 of the top 17 shot-blockers in the playoffs are Capitals, including 4 of the top 8.

They are leading the playoffs in blocked shots, home blocked shots and road blocked shots by quite a distance (ahead of NYR) and are second only to the Rangers in hits.
