The east was far more predictable as Tampa Bay's youth showed when playing the grizzled veterans of the New Jersey Devils and the Ottawa Senators dispatched a tired Flyers team for the second year in a row. The Eastern Conference finals were a contrast of styles between the offensively explosive Senators and the defense minded Devils. The Devils came out to an early lead in the series, Ottawa rallied, winning games five and six on the energizing play of rookie [[Jason Spezza]], but then the Devils regained their form as goaltender [[Martin Brodeur]] helped them win game seven and advance to the Stanley Cup finals for the third time in four years.

The Stanley Cup finals were a duel between two elite goaltenders, but after seven games the Devils triumphed to win their third Cup in seven years. The series also saw [[Scott Stevens]] land one of his prototypical crushing hits on Anaheim captain [[Paul Kariya]], similar to the one that had knocked out [[Eric Lindros]], then of the Flyers in the [[1999-2000 NHL season|2000]] Playoffs. Unlike Lindros, Kariya returned to the game only ten minutes later and scored.
