While the Sabres forced a Game 7 against Philly, the reasons why they ultimately lost out are pretty simple.

Alex Burrows’ Game 7 couldn’t have been more frantic and maddening. Good thing for him it came out positively. Also we look at how Ryan Miller and Corey Crawford’s nights compared and we hope that referee Kevin Pollock’s bad night is just that.

Alex Burrows ran the gamut of roles in Game 7 against Chicago, but ultimately he’s the hero and exorcist as his overtime goal sends Vancouver on to the next round after vanquishing their perennial tormentors.

If the Bruins and Canadiens follow their 2010 scripts, then Boston will fold in these elimination games while Montreal will fight back to win the series. Can the B’s overcome that collapse against the Flyers or watch in horror as history threatens to repeat itself?
Apr 26, 2011, 4:12 PM EST
Despite all the pressure on the Canucks to avoid an epic collapse, the Blackhawks face a new kind of pressure too. This is their first Game 7 since 1995.
