No matter how this Stanley Cup Final ends, this was one of the best playoffs ever

After watching Game 5, it dawned on me again at how wonderful this playoff run has been for the entire league. I don’t know if it’s a product of the lockout with players playing with more energy, but we have some memorable moments in the playoffs.

I can’t remember a crazier comeback than what we saw what the Bruins did the the Maple Leafs in Game 7 of the first round. That’s the kind of stuff that can propel or haunt a franchise.

The Sharks and Kings gave us the most evenly matched matchup in the playoffs. Both went to lengths to outduel each other and getting to Game 7 (I was there) was amazing. Unfortunately the Sharks lost, but it was a great series.

The Cup Final has been great too. Overtimes (especially the triple overtime in Game 1) gave us an instant classic. The entire series has been a joy to watch and for any newcomers to hockey, the playoffs this year has given them every reason to love and follow this sport. I am just happy to have watched and have been a part of this run. It’s been just so fun!
