Bring it on. Don't apologize for it. Revel in it. Salute the four survivors. The absolute unpredictability of the playoffs and the fluctuating field of conference finalists, phenomena that were around before the salary cap made them even more likely, are among the NHL's strengths. In contrast, when there are "major upsets" in the NBA's postseason, it's enough of a shock that we probably should be listening for stray referees' whistles coming from the grassy knoll. Maybe more than ever, there no longer are such things as "upsets" in the NHL playoffs.more
