Thursday's Dump & Chase: The West is the Best

USA TODAY Sports

At least in terms of the first batch of games, certainly. The two Eastern Conference contests last night were over pretty early. But in the West, we've had two overtime games, coupled with a tight 3-1 game in Anaheim, and a 3-1 Sharks win in Vancouver last night. The final two series get started tonight, along with Game 2 in St. Louis and Anaheim. Check in with us all day for series previews and game threads...Happy Thursday!
