The Eastern Conference final between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Boston Bruins is a matchup of the two best teams in the conference over the course of the regular season.

The Penguins rolled to the conference title with a nearly flawless second half and only some inconsistent play cost the Bruins the chance to win the Northeast Division and the second seed in a battle against the Montreal Canadiens (really, is anybody going to argue the Habs are a better team than the Bruins?)
