Yeah, it seems teams are much more willing to trade chances now. The refs also don't really put their whistles away anymore like they used to either.
I think that will change a little bit in the next rounds as the teams with relatively poor defense and sub-par goaltending will be mostly eliminated.
Well, the OT's haven't been one sided, just really free flowing and open. Even the teams that will advance have played that open style.
Many of these games aren't even going 5 minutes before they're over.
