Bruins Force Game Seven, Flyers and Kings Advance and More

Morning hockey fans!

It seems as if we have our first official upset of these playoffs, with the Los Angeles Kings defeating the President's Trophy winning Vancouver Cancucks.

Given how close the team's are in the Western Conference, I do not know how much of an upset this is, but seeing the Canucks bow out in only five games certainly counts as a surprise.

Meanwhile, on the Eastern side, the Ottawa Senators have an opportunity to pull off an upset of their. They lead their series 3-2 and have an opportunity to close out the New York Rangers tonight.

So, are you surprised by the way the first round has played out thus far?
