SJ/COL is my biggest hope now that STL is out. BOS/COL is my other even though it's highly unlikely

 

do you know what's gonna happen to Colorado in a 7 game series vs Chicago? They've been extraordinarily lucky to survive minnesota so far. They'll get rolled in 4 or 5 getting outshot by 15 every game

To the contrary the Avs had some good success over the hawks in these past two seasons.

Seeing teams blow leads and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory this postseason, i don't know if it's just really good hockey or some terrible hockey disguised as good. Whatever the case this is entertaining.

Poor St. Louis, this really seemed like their year to make a deep run.

Anaheim wins. Absolutely soul-crushing loss for Dallas. We know this feeling- this is Dallas' 09 Carolina.

That's a good analogy.  I was really hoping Dallas could pull it out for a game 7 as I have no love for Anaheim.

2 goal leads are the worst leads in these playoffs.  Seriously.  I'm excited for the ANA vs SJ / LA series in the next round.

Except Dallas still had to win another game besides this.  This was more like Bruins-Hawks Game 6 only not in the Finals.

 

At least those two games were over mercifully quick though...they had to sit through an intermission after blowing a two-goal lead and then blow it for good in OT.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

Really blows my mind to see a team like St. Louis out of it while one of two absolute sh!t teams like the Rangers and Flyers, probably the Penguins (no one will convince me that they're not crap), and Montreal are through the next round in the East. I am absolutely zero convinced about any other team in the East other than Boston. Pretty amazing how stacked the West is.

the rangers aren't crap like it or not and the Pens have two of the 5 best players in the league. If Miller was gonna keep with his .901 SV% since he got to STL, they weren't going anywhere and weren't particularly good overall

Martin St.Louis makes the Rangers a serious contender in the East (although Boston with their top 7 Defensemen is still the class of the league).    Pittsburgh isn't mentally tough enough, lost too many of thier grit guys because of salary cap to have the depth to move forward.

 

Boston vs Montreal is MUST SEE hockey.

I think you're overestimating the quality of hockey that's been played in the East the past couple weeks:

  • Penalties being called every minute and a half in the Philly-NY series, a complete lack of playoff-level physicality or intensity (for example, 2 NY embellishment penalties in game 2; what team has even gotten ONE embellishment penalty in a PLAYOFF series). Don't even get me started on how piss-poor the Flyers' play has been compared to their March surge against pretty much all the top teams out West. What should've been an easy series for the Rangers has somehow been dragged out to be 3-2 at this point; Flyers just haven't been good all series, while Rangers are taking advantage of almost never having to play 5-on-5 hockey, which their power play numbers are benefitting from. Obviously, their penalty kill is better than Philly's, so special teams has been the story in this series.
  • Top-seeded division team like Pittsburgh absolutely struggling to get past a Columbus team that would've never qualified out West, a noble but still substandard CBJ team I see as on par with the Devils, but who got the odd shootout win or 1 extra necessary win at the end of the season. Pittsburgh, once again, still finds itself in perilous waters and without answers to some of their questions, but probably reaching round 2, similar to the Islanders series last year. We know what happened next.
  • An "okay" Montreal team somehow sweeping a 2nd place Tampa Bay team says everything you need to know about how I view those teams and the series.

Meanwhile, the Western Conference is chugging along. Even Dallas put up a valiant fight and the series was angry, physical, and hard-fought. The only team I saw out West as substandard was Minnesota and even they're putting up a good fight. 

 

I know you're gonna blame my Devils bias, but overall, the Eastern-based playoff teams have been piss-poor, and as an objective hockey fan, it's a bummer that teams like St. Louis and San Jose/Los Angeles will be out when round 1 is all said and done; and that's just a testament to how strong the West is.
