With the Wings-Avs, a lot of people think the wind left the rivalry's sails after Claude was gone. But running Roy from the net in the final game of the 01/02 series and subsequently winning the cup, I think, is what kinda bookmarked the end. But true hatred never really goes away.
The Sharks won tonight but I think they'll get closed out in game 6. Nothing in me sees the Rangers coming back. God, if the Eastern Finals are an "all Pennsylvania" affair I don't think I'll even watch it.
(ok, that's a lie. I'll still watch but, dammit, I won't be happy about it.) Good luck!
The Rangers are dead already, if we lose to Philadelphia I don't see how Pittsburgh couldn't get to the Cup finals...
