I am glad to see that the teams that rely more on skill that running their opponents through the end boards are moving on. While the games have been exciting because the score were close and most of the series went 7 games, there has just not been a lot of nice goals. Chicago had a few nice ones and Ovchkin scored a couple of great goals but most have been the result of scrambles in front of the net. Roller derby hockey gets tiring after a while. It will be interesting to watch the refs to see if they change how they call the games to match the types of teams that are playing.
I just wish there was some coorelation between the rules in the regular season and the playoffs.
