I am hoping Carolina. The West is interesting because both franchises have a long history of failure.

And the Bruins took Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals, with a score of 2 to 1 over the Hurricanes.  This extends their lead in the series to 3-0.  One more win, they'll be headed to the Stanley Cup Finals against St. Louis or San Jose.

Sharks can't win without help from the officials.

We've seen this happen a lot in the history of playoff hockey (and other sports) when the result doesn't go well as expected. I know how the fans feel when they chant against the referees calling the game when bad calls happen...

The Bruins swept the Eastern Conference Finals, with a 4-0 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes (both the in-game score and the series score, oddly enough).  They'll kick off the Stanley Cup Finals in Boston for the first time since 1990.

Now the Leafs fans are wondering if we had won game 6 or game 7 of the 1st round, that they could have had a shot to win it all... no one knows for sure.

I have to wonder though if the other series ends early, maybe they can start the Stanley Cup Finals a little earlier than usual. On the other hand, sweeps by NY Islanders and Carolina have come back to haunt them in subsequent rounds, so maybe that might be the same thing too for Boston if the series in the west goes long.

The longer the Western Conference finals goes, the better chance the winner has at winning against Boston as we've seen from teams who have swept so far this postseason. If I'm from Boston, I'm hoping San Jose wins the next two games.

If it is Sharks and Bruins, I won’t be watching. Never liked either. The Blues have always been just there. Sure, they had a long playoff streak but never did anything during that time.

There you have it, St. Louis is going back to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in nearly five decades. As it stands, the Stanley Cup Final will be like 1970 in terms of teams playing for the title. From 1968-1970, they were swept every time. Hopefully it will not be the case this time and maybe they might win it all.

I wished with the series ending now they should start the finals earlier, but currently the finals are scheduled for May 27th. I would have went for a weekend start (maybe the 25th)...

I hope the Blues win but I'm picking Bruins in 6.

I think it's going to be Boston in 5.

Boston is the super team of the east.  Rask is a menace at goal

The Bruins overcame a two-point deficit to beat the Blues with a score of 4-2, taking the first game in the Stanley Cup Finals.

St. Louis wins their first ever Stanley Cup Finals game in their 52 year history with a 3-2 overtime win over Boston.  Series is tied 1-1 heading to St. Louis
