The Conference Finals are in the rear-view mirror now, but some of the most spectacular plays from them are still worth a look as we prepare for the Stanley Cup finals.

 

There are a lot of pretty plays here – the Asham and Leino goals come to mind, in particular – but for my money the best one is Jonathan Toews sliding the puck cross-crease to Patrick Sharp for the tap-in goal.
