Oh yeah, and I dont remember who, but someone dominated Marleau on the boards, and completely changed the momentum

was it Sarich.. Phaneuf I cant remember

Still can't forget how all the flyers fans got up in arms about "the russian diving team" and then hartnell pulls the most obvious dive I have ever seen, stays on the ice for 5 seconds like he is dead, and finally gets up as soon as the puck bounces to him and shoots it on goal.

What a bunch of hypocrites.

That was by far the worst series.

Darkhorse pick, but the Minnesota-Colorado series was very fun to watch. 5 of the 6 games were decided by 1 goal.

Second place would be either Flames-Sharks or Habs-Bruins.

Dallas-Anaheim had the potential to be great; defending champs vs. strong Stars team that needed to finally put away playoff demons.

Didn't turn out to be quite as entertaining as expected, though, as the Stars dominated.

Still got my vote though! lol

Bruins vs Habs was incredible!

Game 6 of that series was amazing to watch.

Game 4 of that series was great to watch as well. Savard's OT goal! Bruin's first win against the Habs baby!

Philly-Washington gets my vote, with Mon-Bos in 2nd.

I missed game 7 of the Flyers-Caps series because I was at a playoff game for the Victoria Salmon Kings, but when they announced that the Flyers had won the game over the PA system at the arena everyone booed, everyone wanted the Caps to win that series, including me.

Philadelphia-Washington

Ovechkin showed that he can carry his team in the playoffs aswell. Bäckström played and made an impact later in the series, great to see.

The first game was awesome. Ovechkin getting the GWG in his first playoff game. Physical play, great goals, and even, even games. It was a great series.

One of the 5 greatest games in the last 10-12 years.

Montreal-Boston for me. 6 exciting games and one...umm...not exciting one. Game 6 was, win or lose, one of the best games I've ever seen.

5 exciting games. Game 1 and 7 were terrible. The Habs owned the Bruins in every aspect of those 2 games. The Bruins were not in either game mentally or physically. They were completely out maned, out gunned and out played in those 2 games.

That being said, games 2-6 were top notch.

Habs won 1-0 in game 4. Price stoned the Bruins and Brisebois of all people scored the GWG on a slapper. Yeah, it was a great game!
