Decade's best playoff series

12 posts in this topic

I was having a debate with a co-worker today about this. What are your top ten playoff series from the last ten years? It's a tough choice for sure. You have to take into account personal feelings and team allegiances and all sorts of other factors. Here are the ones I came up with in no physical order:

1. Philadelphia Flyers at Boston Bruins - 2010
2. Los Angeles Kings at Chicago Blackhawks - 2014
3. Philadelphia Flyers at Washington Capitals - 2008
4. Detroit Red Wings at Chicago Blackhawks - 2013
5. Montreal Canadiens at Boston Bruins - 2011
6. Chicago Blackhawks at Vancouver Canucks - 2011
7. New York Rangers at Pittsburgh Penguins - 2014
8. Montreal Canadiens at Washington Capitals - 2010
9. Carolina Hurricanes at New Jersey Devils - 2009
10. Chicago Blackhawks at St. Louis Blues - 2016
Wild-card: Tampa Bay Lightning at Boston Bruins - 2011
Picking the best series is really friggin hard. I guess if I had a gun to my head, I'd probably go with the Hawks and Canucks from 2011. The rivalry itself, the early Vancouver dominance, the Chicago comeback and the way the final two games ended was legendary.
Your turn. Let's hear 'em.

That game 7 between Boston and Tampa made the series in 2011. My fingernails still haven't fully grown back.

If AV gets fired after the Rangers/Penguins Quarterfinals of 2016, I'll consider it one of the best playoff series of the past century.

I'm obviously biased, but my personal favorite was Devils-Rangers 2012 ECF. Little bit of everything in that one, and some definite bad blood even between the coaches. Rupp v. Marty was fun too.

The ending was nice as well.

That wasn't an exciting playoff series, it was a very disappointing last three minutes of regulation.

I'm surprised you didn't mention the 2012 Pens-Flyers series. That series certainly had feeling in it.

I didn't include any series under seven games. That wad the only criteria I used when deciding. It had to be a seven game series.
