Two more teams were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Finals on Thursday. Last night the Ottawa Senators sent the Montreal Canadiens home packing and the Chicago Blackhawks did the dame to the Minnesota Wild.
But the bottom line is these two series were not even close. The Senators trounced the Canadiens 6-1 last night to win the Eastern Conference quarterfinal 4-1. How dominant was Ottawa? Well they outscored Montreal 13-0 in the third period throughout the series.
The Blackhawks were equally as dominant against the Wild. Marian Hossa scored twice and registered three points in a 5-1 triumph as Chicago eliminated Minnesota in five games. The Blackhawks beat the Wild despite not getting a goal in the series from Jonathan Toews.
