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.
And Brodeur too by the sounds of things.
Welcome follow duck fan. Thought I was the only one that liked them
Given that Ireland isn't exactly a hotbed of hockey it wasn't a bad assumption to make.
Is Emilio Estevez still coaching them?
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?!
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.
Anyone watching the first Game 7 of the playoffs tonight? Really looking forward to it.
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 !!!
definetly watching this game tonight, been a great series to watch... great teams defensively....
hope to see the caps win this 1, which i think they can do!!! but it will be close!
Tempted to put money on the Capitals, they look like decent value at 2.55
