Pens-Flyers is the best for me. Then comes LA-Van. Followed by DET-NSH, NYR-OTT and BOS-WSH. SJ-STL, least entertaining so far but didn't see game one. Haven't seen CHI-PHX play yet and going to see first game of NJ-FLA in an hour.

Yeah, the worst game of the three.

Bruins/Caps and Blues/Sharks could be great if they go the distance. Pens/Flyers may be the best sweep ever, but I can't see a sweep as a great series.

I find it really hard to be interested in the western teams for some reason.

1. Penguins-Flyers
2. Canucks-Kings
3. Rangers-Senators
4. Bruins-Capitals
5. Coyotes-Blackhawks
6. Red Wings-Predators
7. Blues-Sharks

Honestly penguins/flyers is a joke. I'm only enjoying it because I hate the Pens, the quality of hockey is actually terrible. Game one was sick though, can't deny that. Then the series got out of control.

I think it's just the fact that it's the leagues 2 best offenses, whichever team wins, when they play either NY, or BOS you'll see 3-2 games. Flyers and Pens are both run and gun teams, like mixing chemicals

Can't make a objective call on SJ/STL, LA/VAN & CHI/PHX because I haven't seen these games in entirety.

1) DET/NSH - Biased because my favorite team is in it. Smart, defensive hockey. Hard hitting, grinding, low scoring chances but high intensity. Only problem is the refs are getting way too involved.

2) PHI/PIT - As embarrassing as I find the defensive play, it's hard to not find these ridiculously violent, high scoring games entertaining.

3) NJ/FLA - I wasn't extremely sold on the first game but their second game was absolutely fantastic. Both these teams are fast as hell and they fly up and down the ice with intensity and have a shots and hit parade. Just clean, fast, exciting hockey.

4) WSH/BOS - Has really picked up after a slow game #1 and a slow first half to game #2. You can tell the teams are really starting to grind away at each other and draw some bad blood. The Seidenberg/Ovechkin business is getting very intense and as much as the Caps play the trap, the Bruins are there to keep it exciting.

5) OTT/NYR - I'd put this almost at a tie with WSH/BOS. Ottawa is such a hard working team and it shows on the ice, they're exactly the sort of team that can push NYR to play even harder. With the suspensions, these games are going to get even better.

There's going to be plenty of defensive games coming up.

It's nice to see one series that's a bit of a return to old-school firewagon hockey.

Indeed. I'm not sure what people were expecting. Two best offenses in the league who both play a similar style and hate each other to the core.

I don't necessarily agree with all the shenanigans, but I can't say they weren't expected.

flyers-pens is like 80's hockey before the defensive systems started. Want to know how guys scored 80 and GAA around 3.00 made you a vezina candidate, thats how.

I've recorded and watched at least the majority of all the games except Florida/NJ. Its a great post-season so far. Every series is looking interesting and intense....with some shocking upsets.

Kind of surprised at how little push-back the Canucks have shown.

I love hockey, so maybe I'm too easily entertained. But now that the series are getting to where some teams are at risk of going out, its really getting entertaining.

Pit/Phi series has been the most entertaining series, but I've enjoyed the Nash/Det series from a pure hockey standpoint.

Let's be honest, are people really enjoying the Kings-Canucks series or are they just enjoying watching the Canucks lose? From a hockey standpoint, it's pretty much been ice football, especially with the terrible ice in LA. Passes are being bobbled, guys are losing their edge; it's ugly hockey.

Pretty hard not to pick Pens-Flyers. Horrific goaltending but wonderful skill being displayed.

Are you sure you're not just enjoying the Pens losing?

Nah, I don't mind either team and you can't really compare the level of vitriol directed the Canucks way to the Pens or Flyers. The Canucks have an entire country rooting for their failure, whether you feel it's deserved or not. I just have a hard time believing people are compelled by the actual hockey being played, it's ugly as hell so there must be another non-hockey motive for people listing as their favorite or second favorite series. I'm not complaining, I'm just saying...

I'm not really interested in the Eastern games. Haven't seen NJ/Florida and i'm not going to. Flyers and Philly is a mess, but that the only series that i completely watched from the East.

the Western games are entertaining. Not going to rank them, cos i haven't watched them all.
