Haven't gotten to watch as many games as I'd like.

Chi-Van has been really exciting for all the wrong reasons if, like me, you're cursed with being a Canucks fan.

Agreed with the NYR-WAS sentiments from a couple posters. Great series albeit heartbreaking for Rangers fans
Agree with your comments, Ana-Nas has scoring, hitting, good goaltending, strong d, and exciting buildings. That can be said for 4 other series as well.

Love the NHL playoffs.

Saw my first game of the nash-ana series and wow, that is one all-out series.

Coming from a Sharks fan that's high praise.

1.Preds-Ana Watched every game. 2 very different styles of hockey being showcased and a very unpredictable series.

2.SJ-LA Watched every game. Battle of California games are always fun to watch.

3.Caps-NYR Watched a few games. Might be the Caps year imo. Solid team. Rangers have a good young group and are fun to watch.

MTL-Bos & Van-Chi looks like they are intensifying. Sadly watched every MTL game. As much as I hate to say it, MTL has been damn impressive. And Van, wow talk about a drop off jeez.

Rest are pathetic excuses of "playoff" hockey.

Agreed. That series has been my favorite from an entertainment stand point. But those jerseys are the worst in the league by far

Preds-Ducks 1sts, PHI-BUF is amazing too, Mtl-Bos 3rd.., Van-Chi fourth just because every Canuck fan said "Sweep" and now there is a chance that there might be game 7.

and the last should be PIT-TB, still can't believe my eyes they're losing with Vinny,Stamkos, and St.Louis.

Ana-Nash is the best series of the playoffs, so far. Knew it would be.

When is Erat supposed to be back?

I have seen very little of Anaheim-Nashville but what I've seen hasn't exactly overwhelmed me.

I'd go with Boston-Montreal and then Philly-Buffalo.

Erat is questionable for Saturday. No information on his injury since it's the NHL + the play offs.

It's kind of weird seeing how many people are enjoying the Nas/Ana series considering the amount of people who constantly whine about how boring Nashville games in particular are during the regular season.

It's okay. You can admit the truth. It's actually a compliment to the team that they made it as unexciting as possible.

I love that the Wings swept but it wasn't especially exciting.

preds-ducks. i didn't expect nashville to play the way they have at all. good on trotz for being so close to his first playoff series victory.

chi-van close second. they officially have hatred and contempt for each other.

Personally I'm not sure if he's coming back.

It looked to me like it aggravated his back. He's been playing through back spasms for quite a while. Anyone who's had back pain knows you can only stand it up to a point.

Of course this is all just my speculation, I'd love to be proven wrong.

Even as a fan of one of the teams in the Tampa-Pittsburgh series, I can quite honestly say it is one of the least interesting series I've seen in the last few years. And the poll numbers overwhelmingly agree.

I wish Nashville/Anaheim was more accessible to watch, that's been a treat.
