So after ultimately defeating Washington 2-1 Saturday night following a rather sluggish seven-game series, the Rangers move on to face New Jersey in Game One of the Eastern Conference Final on Monday. There's action aplenty before then, primarily Sunday when the Kings visit Glendale (8 p.m.), and here's how best to follow it outside of a Panthers sphere of influence:
- Los Angeles Kings (8th in West): Jewels From The Crown
- Phoenix Coyotes (3rd): Five For Howling (still the best blog title. Ever.)
- New Jersey Devils (6th in East): In Lou We Trust (Who?)
- New York Rangers (1st): Blueshirt Banter
And of course, the SB Nation NHL Hub covers everything in between.
