Neutral Zone Wrap

If overtime and unbelievable stories are your cup of tea, then the first round definitely kept you caffeinated.

Congrats to the Kings on their comeback and to the Wild for finally breaking their postseason goose egg. And speaking of animal droppings, kudos to the Ducks for scoring all those goals as a way to mask their goaltending problems. Thumbs down to the Sharks for, well, playing the usual clutch role of the Sharks. Ditto to St. Louis for crashing and burning just to follow the same pattern that ended their regular season. But let's not take anything away from the Blackhawks, who picked apart the Blues' weaknesses one by one to advance. And hey, there's always next year, Colorado.
