#5 Philadelphia Flyers / #6 New Jersey Devils
You wanna see back and forth hockey? Look no further than this game. Seriously. Every time one team took the lead, the other would tie it up.
One of the things we love in this world besides defensive plays and Shea Weber's beard, is goal celebrations from Zach Parise. The kid seriously makes some of the best goal celly faces, ever.
We would also like to say that Alexei Ponikarovsky scoring the overtime winner was not what we expected at all. Our pick was Petr Sykora because of reasons. Penguins fans understand.
#2 St. Louis Blues / #8 Los Angeles Kings
We would like to say that we never in a million years expected this. Never. It is absolutely insane that the Blues cannot get past the Kings stingy defense and excellent goaltending.
But at the same time, the Kings are killing the Blues with excellent goaltending and really stingy defense. And it's almost textbook. What we didn't like to see was the Blues just basically giving up towards the end of the third. Drew Doughty's goal sealed the deal of course.
We say it all the time but we really mean it this time...next game is gonna be interesting.
