Homer pick. Went with Philly. Referees blew every game and there was still a way the Flyers pulled it off in overtime in game 7. It was just amazing to watch.

Awesome first round, all these matchups were great!

But my favorite was the ANA Dal one, just to see the Sucks get eliminated

San Jose v. Calgary. Am I the only one who remembers the utter collapse of the Sharks in Game 3? I never laughed my ass off harder in my life. But then I cried myself to sleep when they squeaked out the series

Obviously a biased pick, but Pit/Ott. After seeing them dispose of us very easily last season, it was nice to get a bit of revenge.

The last few games in the Montreal-Boston series made it for me. I wish Game 7 was a little better though.

Washington-Philly
Unbelievable games. Every single game easily could of won by either team it was that close. Very exciting. Lucky bounces determined the winner of each game.

Montreal and Boston was a great series. I can see why the Caps and Flyers are winning though. That was a very good series as well.

Great series, Bruins came back from down 2-0 and 3-1 to force game 7. Most games were extremely close, 4 1 goal games and 2 went into OT. Game 6 was easily the best game of the playoffs.

There's a certain 4 OT game that would disagree with you, but yeah overall that was a great series.

Minnesota and Colorado was a pleasant surprise in regards to entertainment value. I didn't expect the series to be anything special but it ended up being a great one to watch.

mtl vs bos. aside from the homer pick, it's the biggest on-ice rivalry in the NHL.

I chose SJ vs. Calgary. I thought the entire series was great, but what really did it for me was the game where Calgary rallied back to win after being down by 3 goals. That was simply breathtaking to watch in my opinion.

Montreal vs. Boston was a very close second for me.
