:) Now if the Oilers can win game 7 tomorrow night and not collapse like game 5, it'd be the first time since 1994 that both Canadian teams would be in the conference final, and the first time since 1993 that they would reach their respective conference finals separately (at the time Prince of Wales/Clarence Campbell).

It will be Penguins Vs. Senators in the East.

That game 5 will be haunted forever by the Oilers that cost them the series in game 7, losing 2-1 in the process and 4-3 in the series - if only they didn't choke in the final 3:16... would have been a different story altogether.

Anyway, down to the final four:

East:
Pittsburgh vs. Ottawa

West:
Anaheim vs. Nashville

Prediction time on who goes to the final.

Game 1 goes to Ottawa in OT! Though with the calls made tonight it could have easily had gone the other way...

I never thought I'd hear the Jeopardy! think theme being played on a stadium organ.

The Ducks (aka Capitals West) once again disappoint. The 8th seed Predators are moving on to the Finals!

They should have been out in the second round, but that didn't happen. Oh well, the 8th seed moves on, and now here's hope that Ottawa wins game 6. Otherwise, the Canadian Stanley Cup drought will continue for another year bringing it up to 24.

Holy crap!

Speaking as someone who's lived in the Nashville area his entire life, I can tell you the Preds, while growing in popularity, have never been at the top of the sports food chain here.  Even I'm not that much of a hockey fan, nor have I really kept up with their season this year.  This playoff run has completely changed a lot of people's perspectives of both the Predators and the sport itself.  I don't know if the Preds will pull it off or end up like the Titans did in Super Bowl XXXIV coming one yard short of winning, but there is a buzz of excitement right now in these parts that hasn't been felt in quite a long time, and it's a good feeling.

Go Preds!
Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

Wow, game 6 is tonight and Ottawa can't fill the seats at their arena? Really sad if this is true come game time... :(

Senators force a game 7 in Pittsburgh come Thursday after a 2-1 win last night. Attendance? Only 18,111. Sad, especially when other teams usually sellout their games come playoff time (and in the conference finals).

I sure hope the Sens topple Pittsburgh as I hate the Pens.
