A Wild upset, a royal choke, and another Rangers' Game 7 take us into the next round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

In this playoff edition of Five on Three, Anthony Pucik, Matt Moro and Marelle Cerven talk about the four conference semifinal matchups in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

In the East, they discuss whether or not the extra rest will hurt the Canadiens versus the Bruins, and if the Rangers can beat the Penguins after a hard fought Game 7 victory over the Flyers in the first round. 

While over in the West, the three discuss if the Wild can pull off another upset over the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks, and who will win the battle of Southern California between the Ducks and Kings.

They also talk a bit about the firing of Vancouver Cancuks head coach John Tortorella and the Islanders trading for the rights to goaltender Jaroslav Halak.
