Series Poll---Stanley Cup Finals #8 Los Angeles Kings vs. #6 New Jersey Devils
Nobody could have predicted these two teams would be the only two left at the start of this year's playoffs. How awesome is that?

The Kings are not done. (At least I hope they aren't.) They played two games vs. the Devils this year....both in October or Pre-Sutter. The Devils won both.....2-1 in a shoot out in NJ and 3-0 at Staples. If I remember correctly the shoot out loss was the 2nd of a back to back and the shut out loss was without Quick and Brodeur. 

Both teams come in on a high......both have all 4 lines rolling. Brown, Kopitar, and Williams are a +33 in the playoffs so far. Kovalchuk (sp?) is leading in goals scored. Both teams have strong goaltenders. Quick, a top notch goalie having one heck of a season, and 40 year Brodeur...........who dominates all or most goaltending stats. I believe Quick to be the more athletic goaltender but by no means do I dismiss Brodeur and his experience. Both teams have coaches who have proven wise in their roster adjustments. There is one area I think the Kings hold the edge and that is D-men, that's not to say that the Devils D haven't played strong because they have, but the Kings D have been stellar all year and are bigger.....not to mention Doughty seems to be getting stronger with each series. 

Anywhoo...I'm stoked for this series and hope the Kings prevail. If that happens.....sigh....wow......just wow. 

The series starts Wednesday, May 30th.

Hmmmm. I've done it this way for all 4 rounds and what you propose has happened, I have noticed and could have changed it, and didn't............I just select the one out of the group that has the most.
