In recent years, four Canadian teams have made it to the finals, so it can't be said that they didn't have thier chance. They just didn't get the job done.
2nd place, 2011 CSS playoffs.     QSW, 3/27/17, 1/15/18.

What a first round this has been. All four division winners are eliminated.

As a Caps fan, this hurts.

As long as Dallas or Boston doesnít win, Iím fine.

I'm definitely pulling for the Blues from now on. I'm going there the week of June 9, which lends the possibility of a victory parade if they can pull it off. The last time I visited the Midwest was in 2013 when I visited Chicago just days before their Cup title, so perhaps that's a good omen for them. But HELL NO to the Bruins, as I don't want Beantown to monopolize on pro sports championships, as the Celtics are also in the second round of the NBA playoffs. I'm glad that I went to bed early (after the first overtime), since I'd rather take an R.E.M. nightmare over a real-world one. But at least we got last year, and even though it doesn't look likely, time for baseball.

At least a disallowed goal wonít be the difference.

Carolina sweeps the Islanders and await the winner of the Boston/Columbus series.

I think the NY Islanders just had too long of a rest and it ended up costing them. Now I think Carolina could be a favorite to win the whole thing but we'll have to wait and see how the other teams fare first.

Mike Babcock will stay on as head coach for the Maple Leafs next season. I just hope though that if they do return to the playoffs they get through past the first round, or else after that it may be game over for him there.

Well looks like John Tortorella's guarantee of a game 7 did not pan out, as Boston won it 3-0 and took the series 4-2 to face Carolina in the Eastern Conference finals (I hope Carolina wins). I do have to admit, the calls were really bad that night and some of them looked questionable.

Forgot to mention this, but last night Dallas was eliminated by St. Louis.

Sharks beat the Avs and win the series in 7 games.  The Conference Finals matchups are set.  Bruins vs. Hurricanes in the East and Blues vs. Sharks in the West.

My predictions:
Bruins in 5
Sharks in 7

Well the Boston Slam is officially dead thanks to the Celtics being eliminated but they can still get 3 out of 4 this season if the Bruins win all the way. We do know that one of the teams in the West will look for its first Stanley Cup victory.
