Busting the Bruce Boudreau Curse, the Anaheim Ducks were able to best the upstart Edmonton Oilers and their bright future to advance to the Western Conference Finals and face the Nashville Predators and their white-hot netminder Pekka Rinne. Unfortunately, the Boudreau Curse seems to have remained with the Washington Capitals, who could not best a resurgent Marc-Andre Fleury as he closed the door on their Stanley Cup dreams.

Welcome to the Conference Finals, all.

Sorry we’re a bit late this morning, but we’re still here and happy to be moving on. I’d like to introduce you to Chet Faker and his soulful stylings.
