Boston vs Montreal
The Bruins are too good and Montreal is not stable in goal. Bruins win in 5.
Washington vs NY Rangers
Too much Ovechkin and Greene for Lundqvist to steal the series. Caps in 6.
New Jersey vs Carolina
This one is tough. Jersey sort of limped in before the playoffs and Carolina was hot! Both teams have deep experience and NJ has the better goalie while I think Carolina has better forwards overall. I like the Devils in 7.
Pittsburgh vs Philadelphia
What a battle this will be. Each team has 3 deep lines of forwards and talented center ice men. This one will be a long tough series. I feel the Flyers extra depth with 3 lines of scorers will be the difference. Flyers win in 6.
San Jose vs Anaheim
San Jose is ready for a deep run. San Jose in 5.
Detroit vs Columbus
Congrats to Hitch and the Jackets for your first playoff appearance. Now the bad news the Wings are top notch. Detroit in 5.
Vancouver vs St Louis
Way to go St Louis. Building through youth and a great young goalie. Luongo is way to hot and Vancouver is hot! Vancouver in 5.
Chicago vs Calgary
Injuries caused Calgary to drop the division title. Chicago is young, fast, and has an experienced goalie. Chicago in 6.
