Phoenix makes Nashville look like a team that plays run and gun and flies by the seat of their pants. SO reminds me of watching hockey in the dead-puck era.

To be fair, I'm not saying how they play is not effective. Pretty damn obvious it works, as they are playing for the WCF. Hell, when my beer league team had seven guys the other night, we played just like Phoenix. But it's not entertaining. It's not fun to play, it's not fun to watch, and it's not fun to play against. Sucks the life out of the game, literally.

If the Coyotes can contain Richards and Carter and score on Quick, they will win the series.

They should be more concerned with the Kings first line.

Honestly, you really don't need to worry about Carter...he's been quiet. Just forget about him

Should be a fun series...

And the people calling this trap hockey obviously haven't watched a single ****ing game all playoffs. Damn, just look at game 4 for LA with 1:30 left... their forecheck was still tenacious. Really fun to watch.

It's a great feeling. I like knowing that one of us will be representing the Pacific in the Cup Finals too.

Oddly these teams have had the most success scoring, I'll be suprised to see any 1-0 games, I thought that's how the 2nd round would go DOH!

A combined 3 losses, disgusting. Pheonix in 7?? still hope Washington or Devils win it all.

What a yawn-fest this will be, outside of both goalies putting on a show.

That said, go Phoenix I guess.

If the Coyotes can score more goals than the Kings in at least 4 of the games, they will win this series.

Everyone voting against the Yotes again. This system did not work for the Hawks or the Preds.

Happy Phoenix won, didn't want to wait for our opponent. Mike smith and vrbata scare me. If we can get into smiths head like we did Elliott and brown can put vrbata on his back with some big hits, I think we can take this in 5 maybe 6. Go kings!!

Holy goal-tending duel batman. Gonna be an amazing one, though. Brain says Kings in 7, heart says 'Yotes in 7.
