The Final Four: 10 Bold Predictions For The 2010 NHL Conference Finals

We have seen 49 games of post-season hockey in 2010 thus far.

Most of those games, if not all of them, have been truly and strictly entertaining.

We have been witnesses of one of the most incredible upsets in sports history, and one of the most incredible chokes in sports history.

We have seen or at least think the New Jersey Devils are still regretting the Ilya Kovalchuk trade.

Let's review.

The San Jose Sharks overcame their choking nightmares by getting to the second round. The Detroit Red-Wings defeated the city of Phoenix in a fantastic series that went the distance.

The Vancouver Canucks overcame the Los Angeles Kings in the first round. Chicago defeated Nashville in six games.

The Montreal Canadians produced one of the biggest upsets in hockey history by defeating the Washington Capitals. The Flyers won their series against the Devils in a short five game series. Pittsburgh defeated Ottawa and Boston defeated Buffalo.

In the second round, another massive upset was formed when the Canadians ousted the defending cup champions Pittsburgh in seven games.

San Jose beat the Red-Wings to make it to the final four and the Blackhawks defeated the Canucks for the second straight season in the second round of the NHL Playoffs.

Oh yeah, and the Philadelphia Flyers became just the third team in NHL history to come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series, against the Boston Bruins.

So yeah, I'd say it's been one heck of a playoffs so far, and the best part is that there are still two rounds to go!
