    For me it's between NYR vs NJ and NYR vs VAN, both in 1994.

    What else is up there?

    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 .

    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.

    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...

    Pittsburgh-Washington 2009 although Game 7 was a letdown dramatically
    NYR-NJ 1994 last second goals, lots of overtime, legendary guarantees
    Edmonton-Calgary 1991
    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
