The Habs and Bruins will be a REALLY good matchup due to their rivalries.

I'm going to be honest and say... the Bruins might make it really far but I just hope they lose (Sorry Boston fans, still a butt hurt Leaf fan from last year LOL) to whoever team.

LOL the collective butt-hurt of Leafs Nation will so ruin Boston's chances this year. Id prefer if the Habs won anyhow.

Also not a big Boston fan so I'm hoping Wings avenge my fallen Lightning.... Dang that hurt with the sweep.  Although most of the games they didn't really deserve to win but boy some of those calls were ordinary... need all the luck they could've gotten when their Vezina candidate goalie goes down before the playoffs and have to rely on a ordinary backup (to his credit, he did make some good saves but also let in some real soft goals...).

So much for subscribing to NHL live just to watch the Lightning play haha...

Playoffs progressing more evenly that I expected.  With Tampa out, I'm siding with the Rangers - but I have a knack for siding with the team that eventually lose. Also doesn't help with the Pens being a strong team. Sorry to any Rangers fans out there that I may have jinxed.

Martin St Louis is such a dedicated player - still a little unhappy with his trade request but his skill and passion for the game is undeniable.

^ I actually felt for him especially after hearing the loss of his mother on Mother's Day ... It was quite emotional to see the highlights because well... I don't know about you guys but I'd probably see my mother than play Hockey... but respects to him, wish him the best.

On another note... Spezza and Phaneuf are rumored to be traded to the Western Conference...

Spezza and Phaneuf... both good and consistent players.

Yeah, seeing all the stuff that St Louis goes through to be a hockey player is inspiring and was one of the reasons I'm a Tampa fan.  He gives 100% to the game every night and has always been the underdog regardless of his results.  Just saw game 7 and it was a very fast paced game - kept me on the edge of my seat.

Now I can't wait to see game 7 of Boston Vs Montreal - won't happen tomorrow and most likely won't have time to watch it till maybe the weekend. It's so hard to juggle what's left of my time after family and work haha.

Rangers vs Habs game 2 - Habs luck reminds me of when they were playing against Tampa, except with fortunes reversed with bad puck bounces and bad ref calls creating losses in momentum and then losing the game.

About to watch game 3. Hope the games continue to be close (game 1 wasn't as bad as the final score would indicate, it was really close up until the last minute of period two).

Will have to get around to watching Blackhawks vs Kings but so invested in the Rangers Vs Habs game - plus original six adds a little more atmosphere...

I feel like Rangers may take the series against the Habs. I don't think they can stop their momentum and I personally feel like the Rangers are playing with more heart and motivation. Also, Lundquist is an absolute beast.

For the west, both teams are playing extremely well. I think whoever wins that matchup, is going to get the cup.

Rangers Vs Habs is a very even series, even though each team seams to have a surge in certain periods.  However, Rangers looked very tired and lacklustre in game 5.

Only been catching bits and pieces of the West games and they do appear evenly matched.  With all four teams generally playing well, can't wait for the finals.

I say bits and parts of the Habs and Rangers game... and it was like a shooting gallery! Goals left right and center!

I will have to admit though, the Rangers goals didn't look... too nice. I just know that the Habs won because my dad wasn't swearing and my feeds on Facebook didn't say otherwise XD

I dunno, I feels to me like the Hawks are getting outplayed in every single aspect. Manly tears were shed in game 4 lol. Hopefully, the curse of 3-1 series leads will occur again and they'll climb back.

Habs and Rangers games are entertaining indeed!

Double over-time is a killer.  Let's just hope they still have legs after that and having to drag it to a seven game series too.

Habs overplayed Markov and Subban in this series.  Subban was almost playing the full two minutes on the PP and then his normal minutes, in which is double shifted often.  Probably ok for the first few games in this series but definitely in game 6, he was out skated and out played in a few shifts and looked fatigued in bits of the game.  Torkaski was great in net though. I always liked the kid when he was playing for Tampa/Admirals and always a shame to have traded him.

Wow. Talk about close series'. Kings Vs Blackhawks was unbelievable.  Was constantly on the edge of my seat as they kept trading blows.  Something I did notice after watching a few games is how much more professional these games felt compared to the Rangers Vs Habs series.  Penalties were called but no one on either team tried to sell them. They just kept on playing the game till a whistle.  I remember the Rangers Vs Habs where at one stage, every few shifts, someone was trying to sell a penalty.

Either way, looking forwards to the finals even though I the team I was rooting for was swept lol.

Yet again, this Stanley cup run is proving a close set of games regardless of the results.  I am still going for the Rangers but so far, as the overall results are indicating, the Kings have generally outplayed the Rangers more often.

Well that was pretty disappointing. I'm a New Yorker and I've been a Rangers fan for a long time (though I admit to being an Islanders fan originally) - I stayed up late last night watching game 5 of the finals into double OT.

It's really disappointing because they played 3 OT games, meaning the series could have just as easily ended up 4-1 in favor of the Rangers, and last night's game only even went to OT because of a really bad call that led to a power play goal for the Kings. (It should have been a power play for the Rangers!) That should never have happened, and in that case the game would have ended at 2-1 for the Rangers.

Oh well. That's the way it goes I guess. If the Rangers had just won those earlier OT games, one bad call wouldn't have been the end of the series.

That has been a big problem with the entire playoffs this year - bad reffing decisions significantly impacting game results at crucial moments.  I understand the refs have a tough job out there and some decisions have to be made in a split second but some of the calls were ridiculous and they should have gone for a review in lieu of making a call on the spot, leading to the instance being a non-reviewable event.

Rangers had game two taken away from them with the non-call of goalie interference, leading to the Kings' tying goal and subsequent overtime win, same with game five penalty call.  But like the Tampa games, if the Rangers buried their chances (and they had quite a few), then the bad calls wouldn't have hurt as bad.  I too stayed up all night watching the game hoping for a Rangers comeback but such is life. Tampa suffered some bad calls at wrong times and ended up losing most games by one goal etc but same thing, if they buried the chances they got and in Tampa's case, played a full 60min in all games, they wouldn't have been swept (at least the Rangers generally played the full 60min in all games).
Oh, congrats to the Kings and their fans btw

I noticed all this about bad calls up the wazoo across so many sports. TO be honest, a decent should be able to hold on regardless of the quality of the calls made, any other result just means you suck...badly
