I was 6-2 in my opening round playoff predictions, missing only the Washington-Philly and Anaheim-Dallas series. Now, calling Pittsburgh over Ottawa was not a real stretch, and Montreal over Boston was not supposed to be a stretch, but that series turned out to be much closer than I think anyone imagined.
Here we go with the second round picks:
- Montreal over Philly
- Pittsburgh over the Rangers, though I see this series going 6 or 7.
- Detroit over Colorado
- San Jose over Dallas — this one was difficult. Dallas must be brimming with confidence after knocking off the Ducks, but I think San Jose can still pull it off.
