NHL First Round Predictions

April 16, 2014

Tomorrow night the NHL first round continues with four series openers. One series opens Friday night. My predictions on those five series follows. 

In the Eastern Conference on Thursday, the 11th playoffs series between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers begins. The Flyers have won six of the ten previous ones. I pick the Rangers to win this one in five games.

Also in the Eastern Conference, beginning Friday, I pick the top ranked Boston Bruins to win in five games vs the Detroit Red Wings. These two “original six” NHL teams are meeting in the playoffs for the first time since 1957.

In the NHL Western Conference, my picks are the St. Louis Blues to win in six games vs the Chicago Blackhawks, the Minnesota Wild to upset the Colorado Avalanche in a tough 7 game series, while my third choice is San Jose (Sharks) to avenge last year’s all home 7 game loss to the L.A. Kings, by winning in six games.
