LOVED the Devils/Rangers series. Such great history and a fantastic ending with a rookie, Henrique, scoring the series winner in OT for New Jersey!
In contrast, I didn't much care for the LA/Phoenix series only because of the terrible officiating. Two things really bothered me, 1) Dustin Brown's obvious dives- including the Hanzal shove from behind, and 2) the fact that the Kings' defense were allowed to literally tackle people. I felt as though this could have been a great series featuring two of the best unheralded goaltenders this season. Yes, unheralded, because Jonathan Quick has long been considered a placeholder for Bernier despite his play.
Really looking forward to the Stanley Cup Final! Hopefully, the officiating will be consistent so that, even if tackling is allowed, the Devils can reciprocate and it won't cost them the series.
May the best team win! V
