    So who is everyone picking for the final? I sense an ANA/NYR matchup on the horizon. Which means I'm pulling for the Ducks.

    I'd be fine with either team taking it at this point, Anaheim made it all this way for the 2nd time in a row; and the Rangers had a hell of season so it's anyone's guess.

    Woo!

    I assumed by Pav's post it was confirmed ANA/NYR game, but Tampa's been my pick since the start so that's way better than possibility of the Rangers taking it home.

    Yeah was a great game, 0-0 until the third then Tampa scored twice \m/

    Looking forward to game 7 of the Hawks / Ducks tonight to see who's in the final :D

    I absolutely did not think Tampa would pull that off. The Rangers virtually never seem to lose a game 7 these days. I was way off. :lol:

    It's going to be an interesting final. If Tampa can stick to their system the way they did in the two shutout games against the Ducks they have a shot, if they try to run and gun it will be over fast :2c:

    They need to get this series over fast. Tampa winning a game 6 or 7 against Chicago doesn't feel at all likely.

    Chicago has better depth in their bottom 6, which will make the difference in this series. Chi in 6. Id like to see tampa win, though.

    Tampa owned game 1 for 2 of 3 periods then tried to sit on a 1 goal lead....against the Hawks, big mistake. I hope the Hawks end this quick. LET'S GO HAWKS!

    If Bishop is out I think Tampa is done :2c: I just don't see Vasilevskiy being good enough to win 3 games against the Hawks.

    Depends how well Tampa plays defense, but they're certainly not going to win a shootout if Chicago can get them to open it up a little bit.

    I'd be surprised if Bishop doesn't play...but I wouldn't worry. The Hawks have a way of making backup goalies look like Vezina candidates for some damn reason, lol

    Nothing like seeing the 'Hawks gain a 2-1 lead only to give up in less than what, 5 seconds? God damn was that a good feeling.

    My room-mate was saying that Chicago was gonna take the series and as I was saying, "Nope, I won't allow it" BAM! Goal.
