I assume most of us in these parts were pretty pleased to see the Boston Bruins ousted by the Washington Capitals.
And what a surprise, at least to a degree.
In the offseason, many, including myself, felt that George McPhee made tremendous moves to make the Captials a playoff contender.
However, at the end of a tumultuous campaign that saw them fire their coach, lose their top two netminders to injury and then barely squeak into the playoffs, expectations were quite low entering this post-season.
Now, the Capitals might just be the Cinderella team of the playoffs.
Of the remaining teams, who do you think is most likely to be this year's belle of the ball?
