Now that we’re down to the Conference finals in the East and West, we want to know… Who do you have winning it all now?
May 7, 2011, 3:00 PM EST
With the Eastern Conference final set between Boston and Tampa Bay, we want to know who you think comes out on top.
May 7, 2011, 1:21 PM EST
Yes, the Flyers are done and out of the playoffs after being swept by the Bruins. Gee, I wonder what might make the list of what went wrong?
May 6, 2011, 11:36 PM EST
The Bruins are off to their first Eastern Conference final since 1992 after getting redemption for last year’s second round collapse against the Flyers.
May 5, 2011, 12:50 AM EST
A bad start for Philly turned into a bad ending as the Flyers now sit in the same position they were in last year down 3-0 in the series after losing 5-1 to Boston tonight.
May 4, 2011, 3:43 AM EST
The Flyers know that their goalies are unlikely to “steal” games for them, but Peter Laviolette won’t lay all the blame on his netminders.

Time for the grand tour from Tim Thomas’ glorious night, finding a silver lining for Philly, looking for Milan Lucic, Caps in a must-win game despite discouragement, and how Vancouver’s other stars must step up.
May 3, 2011, 1:48 AM EST
Tim Thomas was outstanding while David Krejci gave the Bruins a 2-0 series lead after his overtime goal.

The lineups for the Bruins-Flyers should be the same as Game 1, so this post provides a guide to the few American-born players who will perform in Game 2. It also includes Andrew Ference’s thoughts on the Osama bin Laden news.
Apr 30, 2011, 6:35 PM EST
David Krejci gouged the Flyers with two goals and two assists as the Bruins dominated Philadelphia 7-3 in Game 1. Philly faces more goalie questions while Boston’s only true concern was their power play.
Apr 30, 2011, 4:17 PM EST
The Nathan Horton-Milan Lucic-David Krejci carried the momentum from earning the Bruins’ Game 7 OT goal into the first period, creating both of Boston’s goals to give them a 2-1 lead over the Flyers.

Stop by to watch Game 1 between Boston and Philadelphia from Wells Fargo Center, stay for the witty banter and questions.
Apr 30, 2011, 12:08 PM EST
While the Bruins and Flyers met about a year ago in the 2010 semifinals, there are enough new faces to make the 2011 series compellingly different. Tim Thomas, Nathan Horton and Kris Versteeg rank among the ‘newcomers.’

The Eastern Conference second round doesn’t get going until tomorrow night, but that’s not going to stop us from sounding off on who we think advances to the Eastern Conference final.
Apr 28, 2011, 8:00 AM EST
The Bruins became only the third team in NHL history to cough up a 3-0 series in last year’s semifinals against the Flyers. Can they exact their revenge this time around or will it be more of the same? Let us know in the poll.
Apr 27, 2011, 11:01 PM EST
The Bruins and Canadiens played another great game, but Boston beat their historical rivals in Game 7 thanks to Nathan Horton’s second OT winner of the series.
Apr 27, 2011, 4:37 PM EST
Two Game 7 matchups tonight round out the first round of the NHL playoffs. Buckle up.
Apr 27, 2011, 9:00 AM EST
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.
Apr 26, 2011, 10:27 PM EST
The Canadiens never make it easy and they made life hard on the Bruins tonight winning 2-1 and forcing a Game 7 tomorrow night.
Apr 24, 2011, 12:01 AM EST
Even with great “saves” by Michael Ryder and Zdeno Chara, Carey Price and Tim Thomas stole the show in the Bruins’ dramatic 2-1 double OT win. Find out how Boston took a 3-2 series lead in this post.

The NHL named the three finalists for the 2010-11 Vezina Trophy: Roberto Luongo, Pekka Rinne and Tim Thomas.
Apr 21, 2011, 10:43 PM EST
The Habs built three leads, but the Bruins kept coming back and ultimately tied the series with a 5-4 overtime win. The ragtag line of Michael Ryder, Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley ended up being the heroes.
Apr 21, 2011, 10:00 AM EST
Today’s action sees the Canadiens look to put a stranglehold on the series with Boston, Vancouver to wrap things up against Chicago, and to see if the Kings can pick themselves up off the floor.
Apr 19, 2011, 10:22 PM EST
The Bruins decided to take it the serenity – and Miracle on Ice related history – of Lake Placid, New York during their off day today.
