Quarterfinals: Day Fourteen

#2 Philadelphia Flyers / #7 Buffalo Sabres

Flyers win the series 4-3 and Game Seven by a score of 5-2

Holy schnieke, that game.

The Flyers were just ridiculous, throwing everything they had at Ryan Miller and never letting up until the third when they let the score get to their heads.

Poor Buffalo. They had no chance.

Ryan Miller was under siege and the defense was being outworked.

It was a shame because the games leading up to this one were so very entertaining.

This reminded us of Game Seven last season between the Wings and the Coyotes when the Wings just rolled over the 'Yotes like they were nothing.

What a game.


#3 Boston Bruins / #6 Montreal Canadiens

Habs win 2-1 and force a Game Seven tonight

Mike Cammalleri and Brian Gionta scored for the Canadiens and they held onto the lead for their dear lives heading into the last minute of the game.

The Bruins played amazing but just couldn't get the puck past Carey Price who won his first play off game at Bell Centre.

One of the big stories was the Milan Lucic hit on Jaroslav Spacek. He was given a 5-minute boarding penalty and a game misconduct. How this isn't a suspension, we'll never know.

Game Seven is already upon us and the house is divided on who should win.


#1 Vancouver Canucks / #8 Chicago Blackhawks

Canucks win series 4-3 after a 2-1 win in OT

Alex Burrows scored both of the Canucks goals.

The OT winner was off a turnover from the Hawks defense.

It's heartbreaking as a Hawks fan to see this but at the same time, they took the number one seed to a Game Seven and then to overtime.

That's something to hang your hat on.

And what can we say about Jonathan Toews?

He was determined and the short-handed goal to tie the game was amazing and vintage Captain-never-give-up material.

The Canucks held the offensive advantage and they should be proud of 'exorcising their demons' but you let the number eight seed trample all over you for three games and almost lost Game Seven.

So, celebrate now because it's only going to get tougher.

We're tired from this series and we're glad that it's over.
