NHL Playoffs 2nd Round Predictions

  • MacBy Mac

I know, I know the draft is tonight!  I’m super excited… but there is also the start of the second round of the NHL playoffs!

Cup crazy?  Thank god I have 2 TVs to watch both the draft and the NHL Playoffs

Lets get to my predictions.

2015 NHL Playoffs

Full disclosure… I didn’t have a good first round, going 4-4… ugh

Now worries, I’ll be better in the second round… count on it.

Eastern Conference:

New York Rangers vs. Washington

My head said Rangers, but I want to see Ovi go deep into the playoffs.  It’s a tough call, can the caps score on King Henrik?  Are the Rangers actually good or just have the best player in the league in net?  I’m going Capitals in 7

Montreal vs. Tampa Bay

Rematch of last season’s good playoff series.  Except one major difference.  Ben Bishop is in net.  I have complete faith in Carey Price, and always have, but I do have questions about Montreal.  Lightning in 6

Western Conference:

Minnesota vs. Chicago

Well, the reports of Chicago having fallen from the elite are in accurate.  I was more impressed with Nashville, and Minnesota is a tough team to play against.  But I think Kane will solve Dubnyk… Hawks in 6

Anaheim vs. Calgary

I don’t know how Calgary is still in the playoffs… Smoke?  Mirrors?  I like that Hiller is back against his old club.  Could be a fun revenge story… I just don’t see it.  Maybe there was a reason they got rid of him?  Ducks in 4

Make sure you grab a beer and enjoy the NHL Playoffs!
