Original Six and a lot of OT

These playoffs have been exactly what the NHL ordered
Tuukka Rask and the Boston Bruins preserved their Stanley Cup playoffs run with a come-from-behind victory in Game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs, both Original Six teams in the NHL. Now, the Bruins will get another Original Six foe – the New York Rangers.
Jonathan Toews, Marian Hossa and the Chicago Blackhawks easily advanced in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, and now they’ll face fellow Original Six team Detroit. “I think it’s great for the league,” Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader said. “Anytime you have Original Six team matchups or Original Six teams in the playoffs, it’s great.
New York, an Original Six member, beat Washington in seven games to reach the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Rangers will get another Original Six member in the Boston Bruins, who also had to play seven games in the first round to reach the conference semifinals.
In its last hurrah in the Western Conference, the Detroit Red Wings will face fellow Original Six member and longtime rival Chicago in the conference semifinals before they switch to the Eastern Conference next season.
