On Ales Hemsky's first goal, the one tying the game at 3-3, it is in my opinion that he kicked it in. From what I saw viewing the clips repeatedly, I would say he kicked it in. Not that I mind, really, because the Edmonton-Calgary round will be superb. Although, I would prefer Original Six teams to win the Cup, and I am hesitant to see Yzerman go so easily. One of the greatest that ever played. The old guard is leaving, an inevitable disappointment that they would go one day.

Calgary now has an easy road to forge ahead in the West (Yes, I am assuming that they win).

The Hemsky goal is arguable. It must be a distinct kicking motion for it to be considered askicked in, like a pendulum, or a soccer player winding his leg back then forth to strike the ball, or winding up for a slap shot. And you're allowed to direct the puck in ur net with ur skates, u cant kick it in.

honestly, i might be seeing things, but i swear that after the puck went off the post, it got knocked up into the air. it went off of helmsky's chest, and then rolled down to his thigh. at the same time, helmsky was clearly being pushed from behind towards the net, at the same time the puck was going down helmskys leg, and the forward movement caused it to go in the net. i never saw the puck actually go off his skate. i even rewound the play and watched it again.

Rangers didn't give up. well they didnt play to potential and put in a rusty Lundqvist in net. Jagr was hurt. It was a combination of things. Dont forget, Jersey is the hottest team in the NHL.

Habs lose a tough one from a 50foot blast deflected by our on defenseman in OT :( Oh well. Here's to next seas :pint: :pint:

Eastern Conference is going to be:

Ottawa vs Buffalo

Carolina vs New Jersey

Ya, it sucks about Les Habitants :( Oh well, Gainey promised us the playoffs during the summer and he got us there.

As for the Ducks; It wasnt the most exciting game (no games are when the Flames are playing), but the Ducks played an excellent game, virtually perfect. They did all the little things right and made no mistakes.

Go ducks!!!

Who was the one who was at Game 6 in Anaheim here at Neowin?

habs lost :( but ducks won BRING IT JOSE!

The top four seeds in the east all won their series.

The top four seeds in the west all lost to the underdogs in their series.

That's a good trend if you are an Oilers fan.

With the Canadiens and the Flames out there is only one Canadian team left that I can cheer for.
