Toldja we were getting to the good stuff!
The conference finals are where the stars begin to shine and everybody on the ice realizes they're just four wins away from going to the big show.
Tampa's Young Guns exploded! Boston realized that the all-star goalie who got them this far is going to need some help! Vancouver found its passion for playing hard and nobody can ever call San Jose's Joe Thornton a quitter again.
We're in for some great hockey!
But I'm busier than a cat trying to bury a turd on a marble floor this week, so this report will have to be bare bones. Hopefully I can offer more by Friday. If not, I'll post a note and a link and you can get the full treatment over at Uncle Willis' place.
Stubinski still leads with Pascoe and House close on his heels.
More on Friday. Game on!
