After two rounds of upset-filled playoff hockey, the East’s Stanley Cup finals representative will come from the Atlantic Division while the West’s answer will be a Pacific Division squad. On paper, the East’s No. 1 seed New York Rangers seem like they’d be the favorite, yet their opponents (No. 6 New Jersey Devils) and the West reps (No. 3 Phoenix Coyotes and No. 8 Los Angeles Kings) seem like their on top of their respective games.

So who takes the cake, then? Here’s a more visual look at the “final four” before you vote:

Eastern Conference

No. 1 New York Rangers vs. No. 6 New Jersey Devils

Western Conference

No. 3 Phoenix Coyotes vs. No. 8 Los Angeles Kings
