Conference Finals: East and West
7. Philadelphia Flyers / 8. Montreal Canadiens
Flyers defeated the Bruins in seven games
Canadiens beat the Penguins in seven games as well
The last two seeds in the Eastern Conference made it to the Conference Finals. Well, yeah, who would have thought that would happen? Not us, that's for sure.
The way that both teams got to the Conference Finals is well known.
We honestly have no idea who is going to win this series. Everyone counted them out but somehow both teams found a way to win despite not having a consistent scorer or a top goaltender.
Both the Flyers and the Canadiens were the darkhorses in their series so we don't know who is going to win. They're both such underdogs that we don't even know what to think.
But Mike Cammalleri visualized the Habs winning the Cup so it's all good kids, he's got it under control.
1. San Jose Sharks / 2. Chicago Blackhawks
Sharks win series over Detroit in 5 games
Hawks defeat the Canucks in 6 games
We were surprised that the Wings didn't make it to the Conference Finals but the Sharks were better.
This could be their year. You never know.
But the Sharks have to contend with the Hawks before they make it to the prom. And everyone knows how tough the Hawks are. Well, they should.
It's always like the Hawks are tettering on the edge but everything goes right for them. Everything goes in their favor this post season. So far.
