Exactly! As much as I would enjoy Edmonton and Toronto getting eliminated I'd be choked if they got 1 OA. And as much as I want us to eliminate the Wild I'd be very comforted if we lost and then won the 1 OA.

Imagine how horrible it would be if the Jets had comeback and the Flames were added to the mix?

Heading into the series I was at peace with it either way too but now that we've seen Hughes, Boeser, and Pettersson excel in their first playoff exposure, and especially after yesterday, as a fan the competitive juices get flowing and I really want them to take it as far as they can with the young bucks and Markstrom leading the way. That's the right way for them to win and drop out of the lotto.

Meh. The Coilers and Leaves fans will need Lafreniere's jersey to mop up the tears of watching the playoffs in their home town, while their teams are out golfing.
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!

Well said! Really into going as far as they can now. Obviously the cup if possible but as far as they can. In the last two games the maturity and
compete levels of the core group for the future of this team has been nothing less than amazing. Yesterday was an awesome team effort.
To a man, they were on a mission. Not sure that all comes from Green, I just think they have finally "really" started to believe in themselves.
Either that or I'm just a homer seeing what he wants to. ;)

Islanders eliminate Panthers. Isles are a team to watch. They remind me a bit of the Canucks.

...and now Montreal upsets the Penguins. Some of the round-robin teams must be licking their chops.
