Round 2 Wrap-up
Round two was not very good for my picks. After going 5-3 in round one, I struggled in the second round going 1-3 and by struggled I mean my one and only win came from the Flyers amazing comeback after being down 3 games to none!
Conference Final Picks
Chicago Blackhawks v. San Jose Sharks – Sharks in 6
After a tough series agains the Canucks, I’m not feeling the Hawks have enough in the (shark) tank for San Jose. I think that like Montreal in the East, this may just be the Sharks year. The years of regular season success followed by playoff failure may just be the motivation the Sharks need to finally get to a Stanley Cup final.
Montreal Canadians vs. Philadelphia Flyers – Canadians in 6
Every year there seems to be a cinderella story in the NHL playoffs and I think this year it may just be the Habs. Also with the Flyers coming off a physical seven game series with Boston I’m not sure they’ll be ready for the Canadians. The Canadians by the way are playing great team hockey which it takes to win playoff games.
Either way, with the Canucks eliminated, my playoff interest has dwindled and we’ll be part-time spectators from here on!
