NHL Playoffs 3rd Round Predictions

  • By MacMac

Ding!  Round 3!

The 2nd round of the playoffs was awesome, so much better than I expected.  But now were on to the 3rd round of the NHL Playoffs, one step from the finals.

Lets review…

2015 NHL Playoffs

My first round predictions were not top notch, as I went 4-4

But I promised I’d bounce back in my second round predictions!  Going 3-1, with 3 series pick in the right games!  If only the Washington Capitals would have won… 4-0… damn it!

so overall, 7-5 with only 3 series left to go.  Lets get to it.

Eastern Conference:

New York Rangers vs. Tampa Bay

Man, I wish Callahan was playing, St. Louis vs. his old team.  There is a lot to like in this series.  As Miller said: “These are the two fastest teams in the league.”

I enjoyed watching Ovechkin vs. Lundqvist… now I get Stamkos!  I think this will be a bit of a let down series, with Callahan out I don’t see enough depth for Tampa.  I’m routing for the Bolts, but I’ll pick the Rangers in 6

Western Conference:

Anaheim vs. Chicago

This one is tough, Anaheim has been big and tough all year, but this is Chicago, they know what it takes to win.  I love how the ducks are scoring in waves now, almost as if they have two number 1 lines.

Not to be out done, the Blackhawks have plenty of scoring from their blue line.  I like this matchup, both teams look pretty even to me, so I’ll go with goaltending.  Whichever team’s goalie players better moves on to the cup.  I’ll be on the guy who’s done it before: Blackhawks in 7

There you have it!  I’ll be back for my preview of the NHL Finals!

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