Detroit wins game 7 of their series against Anaheim to advance, upsetting the second seeded Ducks in the first round. A pair of game 7's were forced today as well, with Toronto and the New York Rangers both winning on home ice to send their series with Boston and Washington respectively to a final game.

Western Conference Semifinal matchups

1. Chicago Blackhawks vs. 7. Detroit Red Wings

Couldn't have asked for a better rival in the Semis.shit is gonna get epic and i can't wait

MADHOUSE ON MADISON BABY!

5. Los Angeles Kings vs. 6. San Jose Sharks

Gonna be a good series as well but i think San Jose is on a roll and is gonna keep it going through L.A

1. Pittsburgh Penguins vs. 7. Ottawa Senators.

If Pittsburgh had troubles with the Islanders than they better wake up cause Ottawa is a lot better the one question i got is what they are gonna do with Fluery or are they gonna stick with Vokoun who really was only good against the Islanders but stunk against anybody else also he really didn't play well that Game 6 just Pittsburgh's offense picked them up for that game.

The two Game 7s are gonna be great today,the Caps/Rangers game could go either way really the series has been back and forth since Game 1 really so i'm going with the home team to pull it out tonight maybe Ovechkin finally gets a point =\

As for the Boston/Leafs it's gonna be a dogfight thought funny enough Boston's plane got stuck in Toronto last night due to some issue with the team's charter plane so they are leaving this morning though some could see this as a good thing for the Bruins The players have a better night's sleep, and they likely won't have to be at the rink in the morning and deal with any media availability.

Either way i'm going with the Bruins to win at home and pull it out.

Another year, another early playoff exit for the Vancouver Canucks.

To be fair, if you go another year back they did get to the finals. I remember because the city was burned to the ground in the aftermath.

Also, Toronto apparently leading in game seven? I don't follow hockey very closely but something seems amiss here.

Bruins lost 3 games straight and Leafs just won the series because of it. This reminds me of the epic comeback by my Flyers against Bruins, even tho Leafs were much better defensively compared to my Flyers. Yeah, I know it's only 3 games compared to Flyers 4 straight games, but still, it's pretty impressive from the Leafs stand-point.

I agree with this statement, however I'm skeptical about whether my Sharks will pull off this series. I hope so though!

Looks like Bruins now, because Toronto Maple Leafs looked/played scared when it became tied up. A Boston Bruins Player nearly made it 5-4. Damn, that was a real quick turn around, and now the momentum is entirely on the Bruins side.

Bruins making History themselves, and I can't believe they just made an epic comeback. It's tied up 4-4 right now, but the momentum is entirely on Bruins side right now. Toronto Maple Leafs did not look like they were playing good at all on defense, but Bruins looked great offensively the last 2 minutes of the 3rd period.

Figures as much, the Leafs are the NHL equivalent of the Knicks, so much money and talent, and yet can never win due to their bad luck, or more commonly, sheer incompetence, it's no wonder why they haven't won the Stanley Cup since the Vietnam War.

Looks like the Bruins will be meeting up with another Original 6 team in the Rangers.

As much respect I have for the Wings, I've got to go with the Blackhawks in 6.

5. Los Angeles Kings vs. 6. San Jose Sharks

I don't trust San Jose beyond this point, so I'm going with the Kings in 5.

Eastern Conference Semifinals

1. Pittsburgh Penguins vs. 7. Ottawa Senators

It won't be easy, but I got the Pens in 7.

4. Boston Bruins vs. 6. New York Rangers

Rangers are the better team, {when they want to be} so I have them winning in 6.

Still, I'm impressed, surprised and happy with what I've seen from Ovechkin this season. He may one day win the cup after all...

In the next ten years maybe...as a staff member.

I'll take Blackhawks over Detroit in 6 games.

I'll take Sharks over Kings in 5 games.

I'll take Ottawa Senators over Pittsburgh Penguins in 6 games. I think people are underrating Senators, and overrating Penguins. Penguins do not have a good goalie at all from what I've seen in playoffs. Vouken isn't terrible and definitely better than what Fleury has shown in playoffs, but Senators have one of the best Goalies in the league, plus I think Senators offense and defense are underrated by the Fans.

Rangers over Bruins in 6 games.

I doubted the Maple Leafs too much.

I thought the Kings would simply rinse and repeat.
I wish I'd said Capitals sweep.

I think that there seems to be a contest to lose the most teeth - isn't that three we've lost in the playoffs alone?

Right, time for round 2:

East:
Penguins over Senators in 6
Bruins over Rangers in 5

West:
Blackhawks over Red Wings in 7
Kings over Sharks in 6

I think this postseason could be the closest we've seen for a while.

Really disappointed in Ottawa's performance tonight. Not to take any credit away from Pittsburgh, but the Senators just didn't look like the team that steamrolled Montreal tonight.

The Kings and Penguins both capture game 1 wins tonight to go up 1-0 in their series against the Sharks and Senators respectively. Wednesday's only game is a continuation of the NHL's premier rivalry, Detroit vs. Chicago at 7pm CDT, 8 eastern.

The Blackhawks put three goals past Detroit in the third period as they take game one by a score of 4-1. Goals by four different Blackhawks, Hossa, Oduya, Kruger, and Sharp, are the difference maker in a game that was in a 1-1 tie for most of regulation.

Tomorrow's games are game 1 between Boston and New York and game 2 between the Sharks and Kings. Bad news for Sharks fans; Torres will be meeting with the NHL to discuss a possible suspension for his hit on an LA player in game one. Torres was suspended during the playoffs last year for 25 games for his illegal hit on Marian Hossa.

Ugh. I really wish I had known this thread existed before, I sure have a lot to say.

By society's standards, I'm not allowed to root for both the Islanders and the Rangers. But fuck, I'm so glad the Rangers made it through. Lundkvist is a fucking beast.
