Vote: Which teams will reach the conference finals?

Dwayne Roloson and the Oilers stunned the Red Wings.
For one of the eight teams remaining in the NHL playoffs, it's four wins down and 12 to go for the Stanley Cup.

The first round was truly the best of times and the worst of times for favorites, depending on their conference of origin. In the East, the seedings held as no favorite was even pushed to a decisive seventh game. But out West, the action went so off course that the fifth-seeded San Jose Sharks are now staring down home-ice advantage for the next two rounds.

So what happens when four Cinderellas are the only ones left at the dance? And are the top-seeded Senators really the favorites against the Sabres if Dominik Hasek is unavailable or at less than 100 percent?

The second round is here and it's time to make your picks, SportsNation!
