I think its going to be a battle till the end, the Bruins and Canadiens will battle it out for the North East division title to the end. The Canadiens are finally getting healthy, so we'll see what happens. The Canadiens will need players like Kovalev, Plekanec and Koivu to pick up their games.
I think San Jose will win the Western Conference, they have one of the best teams in the NHL, but they always seem to choke when the playoffs come rolling around.
Should be an entertaining second hald that's for sure.
