Half way through and we have are final four, two teams were expected to be here are and two... not so much, but should be two great series
Eastern Conference Final
A rivalry of sorts within the Pennslyvania hockey community but not so much within the rest of the NHL community but this series could let everyone know that this is huge, coming in alot of people said including my self that the Flyers couldn't get by the Caps and let alone the Habs in the 2nd round. This series is shaping up to be long if the Flyers do there job and shut down the 3 headed monster in Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby and Marian Hossa which I think they can do, use the body, get in the face of Marc-Andre Fleury and i think they can run with the quick Pens.
Prediction: Flyers over Penguins in 7
Western Conference Final
Best team all year breezed through the 1st and 2nd round and they now run into the Dallas Stars who have out hit and out played 2 of the early favorites in Anaheim and San Jose but now Detroit who has silenced the haters and easily controlled the Avalanche, Johan Franzen broke Gordie Howe's playoff record for most goals in a single playoff series with 9 and it took him 4 games to do it, Dallas has been getting help from all ends of the ice Marty Turco played an outstanding Game 6 against San Jose which went to 4 overtimes, Dallas can win if they be physical and shutdown the speed and skill of the Red Wings.
sleeper Player for Detroit: Johan Franzen, 14pts Sleeper Player for Dallas: Stephane Robidas, 8pts
Prediction: Red Wings in 6
