Just call me Mr. Prognisticator. I’m now 11 for 12 in my NHL playoff picks, after a perfect second round. I expected the Ottawa series to go longer, but I did get the winner right. Now for my third round picks…
- Buffalo over Ottawa — this is a hard one. I am a closet Senators fan (Shhhhh…. I don’t think you’re allowed to be both a Leafs fan and a Sens fan, so don’t tell anyone), so I’d love to be wrong here, but I think Buffalo is just too strong. However, I fully expect this series to go at least six games.
- Detroit over Anaheim — this is a hard one as well, but I think Hasek will come up big for Detroit. I suspect that the winner of this series will take the Cup.
