Well that was quick - the Tampa Bay Lightning sweep the Florida Panthers and will face the winner of the Carolina Hurricanes-New York Rangers series (in which Carolina leads 2 to 1). Meanwhile the Colorado Avalanche are up 3 games to 1 over the St. Louis Blues, and the Edmonton Oilers are up 2 games to 1 over the Calgary Flames.

Calgary Flames fans are going to have to wonder now if Blake Coleman's goal that was waived off because of a distinct kicking motion cost them the game and the chance to stay alive in the series. It possibly could be and I don't know whether if it was the right call or not. I think if they had let it go it probably would have gone in without any issues.

The Western Conference Final is set as the Colorado Avalanche win Game 6 3-2 over the St. Louis Blues meaning the Western Conference Final will be Colorado Avalanche vs Edmonton Oilers.

Rangers close it out on the road. They'll host the Lightning two days from now.

It had to happen someday - the Carolina Hurricanes road woes in the playoffs with them unable to win a game on the road cost them the series by losing Game 7 at home. They survived it through the first round but they really needed to win a game on the road and missed that opportunity in Game 6 (though there were New York Rangers fans on the road).

So therefore, here are the Conference Final match-ups:

Eastern Conference:
(M2) New York Rangers vs. Tampa Bay Lightning (A3)

Western Conference:
(C1) Colorado Avalanche vs. Edmonton Oilers (P2)

We'll see if home-ice advantage for the Edmonton Oilers and Tampa Bay Lightning for games 3 and 4 be able to turn each of their series around and get back in this thing.

And that's all she wrote for the Edmonton Oilers - despite them playing I think their best game in the series tonight, they couldn't hold on to the lead and therefore the Colorado Avalanche win Game 4, 6-5 in OT to advance to the Stanley Cup Final. That means 29 years and still counting for a Canadian team to win but make no mistake that the Colorado Avalanche are the best team in the league right now and could be the favorites to win the Stanley Cup.

Meanwhile the New York Rangers-Tampa Bay Lightning series is currently right now NYR leading 2 games to 1. If that series wraps up early in 5 games, the Stanley Cup Final could start a little earlier than usual.

The Avalanche are absolutely OP (overpowered). I really can't see Tampa Bay or the Rangers beating them.

The difference between the Avalanche and Oilers is that the Avalanche are a team and the Oilers are just two superstars. Hockey is a team-driven sport and the Avalanche are a complete team.

As of today, the Lightning lead the Eastern Finals 3-2 over the Rangers meaning one more win will give them a Chance at a Three Peat for the first time since the 1980-1983 Islanders. Game 6 is Saturday at 8PM ET on ESPN.
