If you have been following the NHL playoffs then you probably know that this year is one of the most action-packed in recent history. The 4 teams remaining are all set on making it to the Stanley Cup Finals and each one is worthy of doing so. The Penguins yet again spoiled the Washington Capitols' chances this year in the last series, while the Senators got the best of the NY Rangers after six games. The Senators will be looking for their second-ever Conference Championships, which could lead them to their first-ever Stanley Cup victory, against either the Ducks or the Predators.
Ottawa and Pittsburgh are two teams with very different styles of hockey. Ottawa plays a much more defensive game, scoring most of their goals in transition, while the Penguins are a high-flying offense charged by their incredible talent like Sidney Crosby and Evgani Malkin and the superb goaltending of Marc-Andre Fleury.
