While my last predictions were more for fun than accuracy (I was 1-7 with them. Ya…), I’m going to try to be more accurate this time.
Montreal Canadiens (1) vs. Philadelphia Flyers (6)
Like the Bruins, Montreal won all the regular season games between these 2 teams. Sure, the Flyers are a bunch of thugs sometimes, but I think the Canadiens can hold them off. I’m liking the Canadiens chances: Canadiens in 6 (Let’s not set anymore police cares on fire okay?)
Pittsburgh Penguins (2) vs. New York Rangers (5)
I really know nothing about either team other than Cindy plays for one and a future Vogue intern plays for the other. I think it could go either way. While the Pens swept the Sens, the Rangers played a gritty 7-game series. I’m not sure if the Pens, even with Cindy, can hold off this team. So I’m going for Rangers in 7
Detroit Red Wings (1) vs. Colorado Avalanche (6)
Oh yes, the 2 teams that top my most-hated list; with Detroit being 1 and Colorado being 1.5. So who do I think will come out on top? I’m not really sure. Detroit showed themselves to be quite beatable during their run with Nashville, and I think Colorado could capitalize on it easily. So I’m going on a limb here: Avalanche in 6.
San Jose Sharks (2) vs. Dallas Stars (5)
Yet again, everyone is rooting against my team, making us the underdogs. Again. That’s fine, being an underdog worked to our advantage in round 1. If the last game of the season is any indictation, they can throw their weight around at us all they want because we’ll still come out ahead. I think the Stars can do it in 6 again.
