These predictions will surely make it absolute that the teams I pick to win will lose, but whatever, right? I'm no fan of assigning a number of games it'll take either, but I suppose to be official about it or whatever they call it, I shall.
I will explain my choices later if anyone is actually like, interested.
Pittsburgh Penguins (1) vs. New York Islanders (8) - Penguins in 6.
Montreal Canadiens (2) vs. Ottawa Senators (7) - Canadiens in 7
Washington Capitals (3) vs. New York Rangers (6) - Rangers in 7
Boston Bruins (4) vs. Toronto Maple Leafs (5) - Could go either way, but I'll say Maple Leafs in 7.
Chicago Blackhawks (1) vs. Minnesota Wild (8) - Blackhawks in 5
Anaheim Ducks (2) vs. Detroit Red Wings (7) - Ducks in 7
Vancouver Canucks (3) vs. San Jose Sharks (6) - Canucks in 6
Los Angeles Kings (4) vs. St. Louis Blues (5) - Kings in 6
