For me it's between NYR vs NJ and NYR vs VAN, both in 1994.
What else is up there?
I agree, cant argue against them.
Van vs Cal in 1994 is up there. 3 straight overtime games.
A few off the top of my head:
-Habs/Hawks Final in 71
-Habs/Bruins Semi Final in 79
-Oilers/Flames Quarter Final in 86
-Oilers/Flames First Round in 91
-Sabres/Devils First Round in 94
Most consecutive playoff series victories: 19, by the 1980-1984 New York Islanders, spanning four consecutive Stanley Cup titles .Love them all .My fav 1983 Bob Bourne’s end-to-end goal against the New York Rangers in the playoffs .
Rangers/Devils in 1994 easily.
What about Habs/Bruins in Round 2 1991? Teams traded wins all the way into game 7. Habs won two OT games. 5 of the 7 games decided by a single goal. Some standout performances from Neely and Corson respectively for their teams as well.
Sharks/Flyers finals 2011.
Best in the West:
..Epic 1957-58 Finals..MTL-BOST. Perhaps the finest Hockey ever played
..1958-59 Semi Finals..TOR-BOST, Climactic 7 game back & forth test of endurance
...1960-61 Semi Finals..CHI-MTL, Very exciting, dynamic...
the whole bourque thing makes 2001 scf worth giving an HM.
Pittsburgh-Washington 2009 although Game 7 was a letdown dramatically
NYR-NJ 1994 last second goals, lots of overtime, legendary guarantees
Boston-Montreal 1969 for all intents and purposes this was the Cup final
From this year alone in 2011:
Chicago-Vancouver - Nice aborted comeback from Chicago and soon to be memorable 7th game
Boston-Montreal - Lots of overtime, clutch saves, two heated rivals in Game 7 overtime
Habs vs Bruins '71 or Habs vs Chicago '71. Both great series
