Both six seeds have survived the first round of QMI's mock NHL playoffs to advance to this weekend’s conference semifinals.

An inexplicable surge from the Edmonton Oilers pits the Albertans against their division rival while the surprise Sens advanced past the Capitals to meet Sidney Crosby and the Pens, who crushed the Leafs with quadruple the votes.

Likely the tastiest matchup of the conference semis, the No. 1 seeded Bruins face off against the New York Rangers in the East as the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings do battle with the Blackhawks out west.

Second-round playoff voting is open below, but first take a look back at QMI's first playoff round and regular season.
