Devils in 6 Kings in 5. LA vs. NJ, is still East Coast vs. West Coast that NBC can use to play up on. As long as it wasn't the Flyers, I am ok with whoever wins, but as a Pens' fan this is a giant lost year.

CRZ, locations for the games in the Western series are wrong - Games 1/2/5/7 are in Phoenix, 3/4/6 in LA.
Devils in six. Rangers have history working against them - no team that's needed seven games for both the first 2 series has ever taken the conference finals - and you can make a strong argument that 1) they've been outplayed in both series despite winning them and 2) the Devils are better than both the Senators and Capitals.
Despite the loss tonight, Coyotes in seven. They've already shown resiliency in these playoffs in the Chicago series with their constant coughing up of leads late, and I have to imagine Tippett will adjust and get the defense fixed so that Smith isn't constantly under assault like he was tonight, because the offense showed tonight that Quick can be taken.
Regardless of how these series turn out, I'm reasonably certain the Cup will be headed west once all is said and done.
