Eastern Conference & Stanley Cup
The Eastern Conference is one of two conferences in the National Hockey League (NHL) used to divide teams. The Stanley Cup is an ice hockey club trophy, awarded annually to the National Hockey League (NHL) playoffs champion after the conclusion of the Stanley Cup Finals. /5

Los Angeles – Once again, the Stanley Cup Final provided Eastern Conference teams a glimpse of what they're up against when it comes to building legitimate Stanley Cup contenders. And once again, the Western Conference proved so superior that it's almost as though teams in the east and west are ...
One thing we may learn from this Stanley Cup Playoffs - the defense in the Eastern Conference is lacking
Stanley Cup Playoffs five times, won three division titles, two Eastern Conference Championships and the 2006 Stanley Cup - Jim Rutherford
Congratulations to our partner for winning the Eastern Conference Final! See you in the Stanley Cup!
Rene Bourque had a hat trick and the Montreal Canadiens kept their playoff hopes alive with a 7-4 victory over the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the NHL's Eastern Conference Final. New York has a 3-2 series lead and would have advanced to the Stanley Cup Final with a victory. Alex Galchenyuk, Tomas Plekanec and Max Pacioretty also scored for Montreal. David Desharnais scored into an empty net for the Canadiens. Andrei Markov had three assists. Derek Stepan struck twice for the Rangers, while Rick Nash and Chris Kreider had goals too. Game 6 will be played in New York on Thursday.
Miroslav Šatan has announced that at the end of this year's IIHF Worlds tournament, he's retiring from playing competitive hockey. On July 3, 2008, Šatan signed a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins. During the 2008–09 season, Šatan was assigned to the Penguins' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. In Wilkes-Barre, Šatan had three goals and nine points in 10 games. Various reports credited him with being upbeat and a good influence, especially with the younger players. On April 10, 2009, Šatan was recalled by Pittsburgh and cleared re-entry waivers. Miroslav re-established himself with the Penguins in the playoffs when he played against the Washington Capitals in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semi-finals on April 23, 2009. He then played in nine games and won his first ever Stanley Cup Championship as a member of the Penguins.
Can your Montreal Canadiens win without their most valuable player? Is Dustin Tokarski the 2014 incarnation of Ken Dryden in 1971 and Patrick Roy in 1986? We're going to find out Monday night. Carey Price is out for the rest of the Eastern Conference Final series. Without their star goaltender, the Canadiens face a steep uphill climb against the red-hot Rangers. A bit of history: In 1971 and 1986, the Canadiens used goaltenders with no NHL playoff experience: Ken Dryden and Patrick Roy, respectively. In both cases, the untested goaltenders led the Canadiens to the Stanley Cup. Dustin Tokarski has no NHL playoff experience. And he's starting tonight.
Devils may be playing golf, but: All in all, Game 4 was a pathetic effort from a team that fancies itself a contender in the Eastern Conference. But here’s the thing. The Rangers simply aren’t that good. They have a long way to go before becoming anything approximating a legitimate threat to win the Stanley Cup, or even come close. It’s probably safe to assume now that the first-round series between the Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers pitted the two worst teams in this year’s playoffs against one another. And part of the problem for the Rangers is they remain their own worst enemy. Perhaps it would be different if the Rangers weren’t such a desired destination for players. Then it might not be tempted to try to grab every fading star player just because he happens to be available.
Amy who are your pics for the Eastern Conference Championship for Stanley Cup.
The 2012 Stanley Cup Final was the championship series of the National Hockey League (NHL) 2011–12 season, and the culmination of the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs. This was the 119th year of the Stanley Cup's presentation. The Western Conference playoff champion Los Angeles Kings defeated the Eastern Conference playoff champion New Jersey Devils four games to two, capturing their first Stanley Cup title in team history. Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the playoffs. The 2012 Final ended a long Stanley Cup Final appearance drought for the Los Angeles Kings, who had appeared in the Finals only once in franchise history, in 1993, when the Wayne Gretzky–led Kings lost to the Montreal Canadiens in five games. The New Jersey Devils last appeared in 2003 when winning the championship. The Eastern Conference winner had home ice advantage for the first time since 2006, since the Devils had a better regular season record than the Kings.
Ron Francis takes over as Hurricanes GM. Jim Rutherford stepped down as general manager of the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday, and the team promoted Hall of Fame player Ron Francis to replace him. In a series of moves, the Hurricanes also hired Mike Vellucci as assistant GM and director of hockey operations and promoted Brian Tatum to assistant general manager. Rutherford, who also owns part of the team, will remain in an advisory role as team president. He assembled the teams that won one Stanley Cup, played for another and reached the Eastern Conference Final in 2009. The Hurricanes haven't made the playoffs since then, the longest active drought in the East. ''I look at this as a fresh start,'' Francis said. ''I don't want to just kind of build a team that gets into the playoffs for one year. I would like to build it so that it's a very solid franchise and we can do it on a yearly basis.'' Francis had long been considered the team's GM-in-waiting. The former team captain holds team records with 382 goal ...
Red Wings got 12 Stanley Cup ok. This year was not our year. Hockeytown will be back next year and will own the Eastern Conference. Is football season started yet?
I can't wait for the NHL Playoffs to start on Wednesday. These are the teams that made it and match ups. In the Eastern Conference: Detroit Red Wings vs. Boston Bruins, Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Pittsburgh Penguins, Philadelphia Flyers vs. New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens vs. Tampa Bay Lightning. And in the Western Conference: Dallas Stars vs. Anaheim Ducks, Minnesota Wild vs. Colorado Avalanche, Chicago Blackhawks vs. St. Louis Blues and Los Angeles Kings vs. San Jose Sharks. These 16 teams have one goal, to win the Stanley Cup. We shall see who will win the Stanley Cup. :)
Erik Erlendsson tells us that owner Jeff Vinik tried twice to talk Martin St. Louis out of leaving the Bolts: Despite holding two sit-down discussions with St. Louis to let him know how much he meant to the organization and community, Vinik was one of many who were unable to talk St. Louis out of requesting a move to the Rangers. The trade happened Wednesday and landed RW Ryan Callahan, a first-round draft pick in 2015 and a conditional second-round pick in 2014 that turns into a first-round pick if the Rangers reach the Eastern Conference Finals this season. “We would’ve loved to have seen Marty finish his career with the Tampa Bay Lightning sweater on,’’ Vinik said. “I was very direct in telling him that my dream is that you finish your career here and you lead us to another Stanley Cup. “But I understand Marty’s reasons. It played out the way it did and we wish him well. He’s been a great player for this organization, is arguably the best player we’ve had in our history, and I hope t ...
Mr. O's Weekend Picks Jan. 3 to 5 We're starting off fresh with a 0-0 record for 2014. Last year's tally finished at 716-560-8 and we're looking to improve upon the mark this season. By "we" I mean "me" but you get the picture. NHL The Maple Leafs have points in six straight, winning four and losing two in shootouts. With several very winnable games between now and the Olympic break, Toronto has a real chance of separating itself from the teams below it in the standings and perhaps moving up a spot or two. Every team goes through slumps but life in the self anointed "Centre of the Hockey Universe" means both bad stretches and good are quite exaggerated. The truth is the Leafs are a good team but not yet a Stanley Cup contender. They're a couple of pieces short of being a Cup contender but also a couple of injuries away from being a team which could miss the playoffs. Thankfully, for them and their fans, the Leafs play in the Eastern Conference and have more than a few less-than-stellar opponents on the sc ...
STANDING PAT Last season, the Penguins got swept by Boston in the Eastern Conference Final. The Penguins only scored twice. The stars – Sidney Crosby, Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin – weren't just unproductive, they were non-threatening. Last year was the eighth of the Crosby era. The Penguins have one Stanley Cup to show for it, and one additional appearance in the final. That's not enough. Last season's ending was abrupt, and embarrassing. GM Ray Shero made a flurry of trades. The Penguins appeared loaded. In the end, they weren't even close. So what did the Penguins do? The Penguins stood as pat as possible. They let the rental players walk. They signed Rob Scuderi and assistant coach Jacques Martin. Otherwise, they stood pat. They brought back the entire coaching staff. All the stars, too. At some level, that validates what happened last season. That's certainly how the Penguins are playing. Inconsistency is epidemic. That goes for the team, and for many individuals. The Penguins lead their divisio ...
Short-handed Bruins beat Lightning in opener October 3, 2013 BOSTON -- Chris Kelly scored on a penalty shot, and Patrice Bergeron also had a short-handed goal on Thursday night as the Boston Bruins opened the defense of their Eastern Conference Championship with a 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. On the night before the Red Sox open their AL playoff series against the Rays, Boston got an early jump on Tampa Bay. Kelly was hooked from behind about eight minutes in while Boston was killing off a penalty, and he converted the one-on-one with goalie Anders Lindback. Boston also killed a 5-on-3 power play in the first period and another in the third, getting help from a phantom interference call that left them just one man down. Bergeron wove his way through the middle of the ice and took a shot that hit Lindback and rolled into the net to make it 3-1. Tuukka Rask made 32 saves for Boston, which reached the Stanley Cup Finals last season for the second time in three years. The Bruins lost to the Chica ...
NHL Predictions 2013-2014 Atlantic Division: 1. Boston Bruins: Coming off the Stanley Cup Finals, the Bruins traded young star Tyler Seguin to the Stars for consistent Loui Eriksson and signed Jarome Iginla (who last year declined a trade to the Bruins). Anyways, the Bruins still have their core from last season and will remain a contender to win the Eastern Conference. 2. Detroit Red Wings: Towards the end of last season, on the playoff bubble, the Red Wings played excellent hockey and nearly defeated the eventual Cup winning Blackhawks in the second round. A switch to the Eastern conference and signing of old swede Daniel Alfredsson will keep the Red Wings a threat in the Eastern Conference. 3. Montreal Canadiens: The Canadiens went from 15th to 2nd in one year thanks to rookies Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher and the rise of PK Subban. I think the Habs can make a nice playoff run if goaltender Carey Price is more consistent 4. Ottawa Senators: Through a season where their stars were injured, Otta ...

CHICAGO — During the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs, there was a distinct University of Vermont flavor when the Bruins took on the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference Finals. The matchup pitted a pair of former Catamount stars — Bruins goalie Tim Thomas and Lightning forward Martin St. Louis —…
The Thinking Cap Some Surprises, Some Not ... This much isn't surprising ... The Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins are two evenly matched teams that appear on the verge of giving us a Stanley Cup Finals for the ages (finally). Two games, four overtime sessions and one win each. It's about all you can ask for from the two teams remaining. But after two games in Chicago, a few early surprises have emerged as this series shifts to Boston. Here's a Cap look: The Team That's Winning Isn't Winning the Beginning ... The B's never trailed against the Pittsburgh Penguins in their dominating performance in the Eastern Conference Finals, so their ability to hold a lead is well-established. Chicago broke through in Game 1, winning in triple-overtime despite never holding a lead in the game. Boston did the same thing in Game 2, surviving a ridiculous series of great shots and pressure early from the Blackhawks to even the series in overtime. Rask was the difference in Game 2, as it could have easily been 3 or 4 to ...
The Pittsburgh Penguins and coach Dan Bylsma have agreed to a two-year contract extension through 2016. General manager Ray Shero announced the deal Wednesday morning, less than a week after the Eastern Conference's top seed was swept by Boston in the Conference Finals.
For all the bad mouthing the caps get, this is an interesting fact...Over the past three seasons, which team has played in more Stanley Cup playoff games? a. Pittsburgh Penguins b. Philadelphia Flyers c. New Jersey Devils d. Washington Capitals You guessed it. Thanks to the Boston Bruins’ four-game sweep of the Penguins, your beloved Capitals have played in more post-season games  than the Penguins , Devils  and Flyers . In fact, only two teams in the Eastern Conference – the Bruins  and the Rangers  have played in more post-season games than the Caps over the past three springs.
Four years after their coming-of-age Stanley Cup victory, the Sidney Crosby-led Penguins were swept out of the Eastern Conference Final.
Great Boston Bruins are NHL Eastern Conference Champs something for me to celebrate - on to the Stanley Cup Final boys!!!
Bruins are the Eastern Conference Champs and are going to the Stanley Cup for the second time in three seasons.
BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins, 1-0, in Boston Friday, completing a series sweep in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Boston Bruins forward Gregory Campbell will miss the rest of the Stanley Cup Playoffs after breaking his right fibula in Wednesday night's victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
GAME 1: Pens vs. Bruins: Series Storylines: Pittsburgh and Boston have been two of the NHL’s most successful teams over the last few years, with the Penguins winning the Stanley Cup in 2009 and going to the Final in 2008, while the Bruins won in 2011. And when the two Eastern Conference powers met during the regular season, the two clubs had dramatic, exciting battles – the kinds of games that make one wish for a playoff series between the teams. That’s finally going to happen in the 2013 playoffs. The Penguins and the Bruins will meet in the Eastern Conference Final, their first postseason meeting since 1992. That year, Pittsburgh swept Boston en route to winning their second of back-to-back Stanley Cups (they had beaten them in 1991 as well). This year, the Penguins swept the regular-season series with the Bruins and won all three games by one goal. “It’s going to be tough. It’s going to be a challenge,” Brandon Sutter said. “I think we’re looking forward to it. If you look back earlie ...
What are the odds? National Hockey League. Both the East and West have slots 1 vs. 5 in the Western Conference and 1 vs. 4 in the Eastern Conference. This was intestering NHL playoffs. How about them Hawks huh? The won in overtime last night. I don’t think that game should have gone to an extra period. The Referees screwed the Hawks out of a goal. That is the second time the referee made a bad call. The Best of 7 games series should have been over and not went into overtime. Everyone thought Chicago was done including me in game 4. Detroit had a strong 3-1 led over the Hawks. Hawks had their backs against the wall by game 5. But too wins both game 5 and 6. Its Detroit didn’t want it. So now the NHL Conference is Hawks -n- Kings. What is everyone’s prediction? I believe another all 7 games in the series. But go Hawks. You’s are one round away from the NHL Stanley Cup. The Chicago Blackhawks hadn't faced much adversity this season during what has been an amazing journey. When they did, they proved . ...

Now that the Red Wings are moving to the Eastern Conference next year, the only chance we would see the Red Wings again would be in the Stanley Cup Finals. We will see what happens next year. The Red Wings are Dead Wings.
CHICAGO — In the closing moments of “Rocky,” the gutsy fighter and his slick rival clench together at the bell, their epic battle now complete. “Ain’t gonna be no rematch,” one gasps. “Don’t want one,” gasps the other. This fight is over. The Blackhawks win Game 7, in overtime, in gut-wrenching fashion, final score, 2-1, on a goal by Brent Seabrook that just grazed Niklas Kronwall’s shin and flew past Jimmy Howard. Fight over. Ain’t gonna be no rematch, because the sands are shifting, Detroit will be in the Eastern Conference next season, and the only way it will face Chicago again in the playoffs is if the Stanley Cup itself hangs in the balance. That’s OK. It’ll take Detroit fans a while to recover from this one.
The Rangers have fired coach John Tortorella, four days after New York was eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Tortorella was unexpectedly dismissed Wednesday with one-year left on his contract. He led the Rangers to the Eastern Conference Finals last year and into the second round this ...
New York (CBSNewYork/AP) — Struggling Rangers center Brad Richards was a healthy scratch Thursday night when New York stayed alive in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 4-3 overtime victory in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinal series against the Boston Bruins.
I'm going to pick my Boston Bruins to win the Northeast Division, as well as represent the Eastern Conference in the Stanley Cup Final.
Bruins forward Nathan Horton is big in the clutch Two years ago, when the Bruins made their Stanley Cup run, Nathan Horton was the late-game hero. In overtime of Game 7 in the first round, Horton scored the winning goal to propel the Bruins over the Canadiens. In Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final against Tampa Bay, Horton scored the night’s only goal at 12:27 of the third period. This year, Horton has scored two of his three goals in the third period. The Bruins (5-0-1) have yet to lose in regulation. If Horton hadn’t netted those third-period goals, the Bruins might be carrying two regulation losses. “You’re not always going to be at your best, but you pull through,” Horton said after Tuesday’s 2-1 shootout win over New Jersey. “You’re down a goal, you’re down two goals, it doesn’t matter. You just work hard and fight back. “That’s the kind of team we are and the kind of guys we are on this team. We all know we can come back when we’re down. I think that’s what makes us s ...
What a TRADE this has turned out to be...Segs & Dougie for Kessel...One Stanley Cup later, and we now lead the Eastern Conference in this Shortened season, when EVERY GAME MATTERS! Great game & Win for the Black & Gold Tonight! GO BRUINS!
...and also the reigning Eastern Conference Champions and 3-time Stanley Cup winners back in the day.
The acquisition of Rick Nash should mean that the Rangers have an excellent chance to repeat their performance as the top team in the Eastern Conference. But signing free-agent forward Shane Doan would put the Rangers in the driver’s seat for the Stanley Cup.
Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli has spent much of the past two offseasons trying to keep the core of the club's 2011 Stanley Cup Championship together. On Monday, he locked up one of the most important, if often woefully underappreciated, pieces by signing head coach Claude Julien to a multi-...

There's one instrument sound for Western Conference teams, and another for Eastern Conference teams. Higher-seeded teams are assigned a higher pitch. This means you ...
The Washington Capitals’ 82-game regular-season schedule for 2012-13 begins on Friday, Oct. 12 at Verizon Center versus the New Jersey Devils at 7 p.m., with the first road game of the campaign set for Oct. 13 against the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place, the National Hockey League announced today. The 2012-13 NHL schedule format, like the last four seasons, has the Capitals facing the other teams in the Southeast Division six times each and the remaining Eastern Conference opponents four times each. Washington plays each team in the Western Conference at least once, with two games each against Nashville, Los Angeles and Dallas. Nine Western Conference teams will visit Verizon Center. The Capitals will host the defending Stanley Cup-champion Los Angeles Kings at Verizon Center on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3, at 12:30 p.m. It will mark the fourth year in a row that the Capitals will play on Super Bowl Sunday. Washington has four homestands of at least three games on the schedule, the longest being a fiv ...
2012-06-13 15:49:00 NEWARK, N.J. - With free agency looming in less than three weeks, New Jersey Devils captain Zach Parise has crossed the rival Rangers off his list of potential future employers. Meeting with the media for the first time since New Jersey lost the Stanley Cup in six games to the Los Angeles Kings two days ago, the 27-year-old Parise reiterated that he would like to continue playing for the Devils and would even consider signing before free agency starts on July with the right deal. When asked if he'd play for the rival New York Rangers, a team New Jersey defeated in the post-season, he was short and simple: "No." Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello said re-signing Parise, who earned in excess of $5 million last season, would be a priority for the Eastern Conference Champions
Thank you for all your brthday greetings! Pasensiya na I was not able to reply right away. Medyo masama kasi ang loob ko sa pagkatalo ni Pacquiao. I made a bet and lost. Tapos natalo ang Kings sa Game 5 and to top it all of Miami Heat ang nanalo sa Eastern Conference (groan!!). I did not feel like celebrating at all. Pero ngayon medyo okay na. The Kings finally won Game 6 and LA has the Stanley Cup at nanalo ang OKC sa Game 1 ng NBA Finals. And Pacquiao was gracious in defeat...so everything is rosy again. Thank you, peeps! I love you all.
Saturday's sports lineup features the French Open women's final (Sharapova going for a career Grand Slam); the Belmont (I'll Have Another tries for the first Triple Crown in 34 years); Mets vs. Yankees (Civil War rocks the 5 boros); Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals (Kings try for their first Stanley Cup); and Game 7 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals (insufferable Celtics vs. loathsome Heat). In the immortal words of Lloyd Bridges so many years ago: "Guess I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue."
The boys wanted me to take them to Modells to get Devils Eastern Conference Champs shirts. I said what? Wait until they win the Stanley Cup! They said we want both. so we went.
What a great week! My New Jersey Devils beat the New York Rangers for the NHL Eastern Conference Championship and will now show the Los Angeles Kings what hockey is all about as they take the Stanley Cup. Tonight, my Boston Celtics beat the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. On Monday, they'll take on Labron James and Dwyane (that's the way he spells it, folks) Wade of the Miami Heat to see who meets the San Antonio Spurs or Oklahoma City Thunder for the League Championship. Where are the Lakers?
New York Rangers. Thank You for one great year of hockey.You Guys played fabulous, hard skating, you took the Hits and kept on the fight. I am so very proud of the New York Rangers. What a year it has been and you took us to the Eastern Conference Finals. How proud of a Fan my Sons and I are . We were so proud to see you play ever so well. We are looking forward to seeing another great year starting in September 2 months away. Hope each and every one of the Rangers take a nice relaxing two months off and enjoy the Love and support of Your Families.Thank you from deep within my heart for all the hard playing, hustling and effort to make the Stanley Cup. See you in September... I SALUTE each and Everyone of you... Thanks Coach .
My prediction was right! The Devils advance to the Stanley Cup Finals. What a class act from Zach Parise. He called the entire team over to have their picture taken with the Eastern Conference trophy.
The Toronto Maple Leafs are one of the Original Six teams of the National Hockey League, competing in the Northeast Division of the Eastern Conference. Over the decades their fanbase has cheered thirteen Stanley Cup victories, some of which were under the
And then there were three. Congratulations, Los Angeles, on defeating Phoenix last night to earn a trip to the Stanley Cup Final. I wanted Phoenix to win, but I m happy for Darryl Sutter. And I would rather they win the Cup than either of their possible opponents from the Eastern Conference, simply because they haven t won it before. Windsor Film Club! =)
The Kings are in the Stanley Cup Finals as the seed. It would be the NHL s wet dream if they played the Rangers in the Finals. Until then, I will be giving Michelle DeFranco Lundquist nightly updates on how Henrik Lundqvist is doing. I wouldn t be surprised if the Eastern Conference series goes to 7, we ll see how that down time will affect the Kings. Lord knows that s what did in the Tigers in 2006 World Series.
Never thought I d be wanting an EASTERN Conference team to win the Stanley Cup again but I do again this year!
Eastern Conference champ to host Game 1 of Stanley Cup Final on May 30
It's definitely do or die tonight for the New Jersey Devils . A win in Game 4 at the Prudential Center in Newark will knot the Eastern Conference Final at two wins apiece...
may have found winning formula to win Stanley Cup as they beat in Game 3 of Eastern Conference Finals
Whoa, Joe Nathan saves a game. Sigh of relief. Maybe the internets are right. Darvish should wear Texas Ranger red at home from here on out. As for the NHL Eastern Conference Finals, another lovely win for 100-year-old Marty Brodeur and New Jersey. Oh, New York, you're gonna be worn out before you meet Los Angeles for the Stanley Cup.
As we all know, it's impossible to win in the Stanley Cup Playoffs without all the little things Richards provided in tonight's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Even Devils star Martin Brodeur, a three-time Stanley Cup champion and the winningest goaltender in NHL history, acknowledged before the Eastern Conference Finals began that Henrik Lundqvist is the "top goalie in the NHL."
The Rangers’ Eastern Conference Final showdown with the Devils is not just a rivalry, and it’s not just the next challenge in search of a fifth Stanley Cup in the franchise’s 86-season run.
It's game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals as the NY Hockey Rangers renew its rivalry with the NJ Devils in the Hudson River clash...both teams hate each other and always enjoy beating the other even when a Stanley Cup berth wasn't at stake. So many bad blood between both teams and if all the 6 games from the regular season are a preview, we are in for a long ride. Tune and I promise you won't be disappointed...I can't wait...go Rangers
And then there were four. Only 4 teams left in the Stanley Cup hunt. LA Kings and Phoenix Coyotes play for the Western Conference title and New York Rangers play New Jersey Devils for the Eastern Conference. These should be 2 great series'. Seeing as the Red Wings are out, I'm gonna pull for the Coyotes. Just because.
2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Eastern Conference instant scouting reports on the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers
The Rangers won another closely fought Game 7, advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 1997 on goals from Brad Richards and Michael Del Zotto.
I now have my prediction for the Stanley Cup Final; the tale of 2 big cities in the USA; have to see how Los Angeles vs Pheonix does starting Sunday in the Western Conference Final and New Jersey vs New York starting Monday in the Eastern Conference Final. What an interesting playoff year, all 4 remaining goaltenders will decide it because they are all good :)
Zach Parise, Travis Zajac and the New Jersey Devils are off to the Eastern Conference Finals after a 3-1 win over Philadelphia in Game 5. And with that there are 7 Sioux still alive for Stanley Cup
If a team from the Eastern Conference doesn't win the Stanley Cup I will be furious.
Happy for Dave Tippett but still hoping any eastern conference team pulls through in the Stanley Cup Finals.
Eastern Conference will be bringing home the Stanley Cup home this year.
Sens head coach Paul MacLean was named one of the 3 finalists for the Jacks Adams Award today (along with Ken Hitchcock and John Tortorella). In his first season with the Senators, MacLean took a team that had finished 13th in the Eastern Conference the season before and lead them to an 18-point improvement and a birth in the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs.
OMG!! Another Game 7 in the Eastern Conference!! NJ 3 FLA 2 in OT.going back to FLA for Game 7...Absolutely nothing like the NHL playoffs!! 3 Game 7's over the next 2 nights beginning with 'Your Defending Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins' tomorrow night in the GAHDEN!!! Btw Bruins fans, pay attention to NJ's Zach Parise, a restricted free agent after this season. A tough 2way center with feathery soft hands passing the puck to Tyler Seguin next year?? Oh my!! Drop the puck!!!
You know, I just realized how hard it's going to be for the Eastern Conference to score during the Stanley Cup. The four teams left all have Vezina trophy candidates. St.Louis has Brian Elliot and Jaroslav Halak, who gave up the fewest goals in the NHL this season. Phoenix has Mike Smith, who has been on a tear post All-Star break. LA has Jonathan Quick, who easily stole the series from the Canucks. And Nashville has Pekka Rinne, who is just an absolute beast. Good luck East.
Last time the top three seeds in the NHL's Eastern Conference failed to reach the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs was 1998.
And the Philadelphia Flyers are officially the first team in the Eastern Conference to advance to the 2nd round of The Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Kyle Turris's first goal of these Stanley Cup Playoffs at 2:42 of overtime lifted the Ottawa Senators to a 3-2 win over the New York Rangers on Wednesday night, tying the NHL Eastern Conference quarter-final at two games apiece.
The Pittsburgh Penguins finished with the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference. That’s exactly where they want to be headed into the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Seed is not indicative of future results in the NHL postseason...

I'd like to know exactly what qualifications it takes to be a hockey "expert anylist" Because at the beginning of the season they all picked Ottawa to finish in the Eastern Conference basement and just before the start of the playoffs about 80% of them picked Pittsburg and/or Vancouver to be in the Stanley Cup Finals. Man I love the playoffs! GO SENS!
My thoughts on the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs (so far): 1. Four overtime games in the first seven.love it! 2. Gotta tip your hat to Washington's 3rd-string goaltender Braden Holtby. He kept the Capitals in their game against Boston in Thursday's Game 1. Still giving the edge, though, to the defending Cup champs. 3. Pittsburgh has NO chance to win the Cup if they're having that much trouble against their in-state rival Flyers. 4. The New York Rangers looked very good in their Game 1 win against Ottawa. May consider them the early Eastern Conference favorite. 5. Looks like the Western Conference championship could go to ANYBODY. No obvious favorite so far in the West.
