Conference finals at a glance

Note: All game times are Eastern. Asterisks (*) denote if-necessary games.

Eastern Conference

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Ottawa Senators

They didn't get through their anticipated second-round clash with the Washington Capitals unscathed, but the Penguins still boast one of the league's top offenses in space, not to mention a confident string of showings by Marc-Andre Fleury. The Senators keep basking as defense-oriented underdogs, advancing past the New York Rangers in the second round.

  • Game 1: Senators 2, Penguins 1 in OT (lead 1-0)
  • Game 2: Penguins 1, Senators 0 (tied 1-1)
  • Game 3: Senators 5, Penguins 1 (lead 2-1)
  • Game 4: Penguins 3, Senators 2 (tied 2-2)
  • Game 5: Penguins 7, Senators 0 (lead 3-2)
  • Game 6: Senators 2, Penguins 1 (tied 3-3)
  • Game 7: Penguins 3, Senators 2 in 2OT (won 4-3)

Western Conference

Anaheim Ducks vs. Nashville Predators

There might not be a more exciting story than the Predators. They followed a sweep of the Chicago Blackhawks by dispatching the St. Louis Blues in six to reach their first conference final, thanks to all-around grade-A work, especially from the blue line. The Ducks took control against the Edmonton Oilers' powerful offense when they needed to and, a string of Game 7 failures behind them, look like a legit title threat.

  • Game 1: Predators 3, Ducks 2 in OT (lead 1-0)
  • Game 2: Ducks 5, Predators 3 (tied 1-1)
  • Game 3: Predators 2, Ducks 1 (lead 2-1)
  • Game 4: Ducks 3, Predators 2 in OT (tied 2-2)
  • Game 5: Predators 3, Ducks 1 (lead 3-2)
  • Game 6: Predators 6, Ducks 3 (won 4-2
