St. Louis are not singing the blues as they have eliminated Minnesota.

Finally a Canadian team goes through to round 2! The Edmonton Oilers have hung on and defeated the San Jose Sharks 3-1 to win 4 games to 2. They will face the Anaheim Ducks in round 2.

Sadly, the predictions came true as Washington closes it out in OT with a 2-1 victory over Toronto to win it in 6 games. At least Toronto gave it all they got to make it interesting (and especially a young team as well) by facing 5 OT games in the series (and 18 OT games in all in round 1 for all teams which is an NHL record).

Anyway, eight teams remain, here they are:

East:
Washington vs. Pittsburgh
Ottawa vs. NY Rangers

West:
Anaheim vs. Edmonton
St. Louis vs. Nashville

Schedule should be out soon - in the meantime, place your predictions here on which teams will win round 2.

Ottawa won last night against NY Rangers 2-1 and take a 1-0 series lead, but boy, attendance was disappointing with only 16,744 fans on hand. Really no excuse for them to not sell out their arena in the 2nd round...

Ottawa beats New York 6-5 in double overtime to take a 2-0 series lead.  With the win by Edmonton last night, the remaining Canadian teams are on a roll!

Much better attendance wise on that game - 18,679 turned out making it a sellout crowd.

In other news, New Jersey is picking 1st for the 2017 NHL Draft - unfortunately for Vancouver they went down to 5th in the draft lottery.

Let's hope the Stanley Cup drought comes to an end in Canada - 24 years and still counting so far.

They're about to choke Game 3 away, too.
