Predictions – Round 2

The Wild first round is over, with the top 3 seeds in the East eliminated, and 4 powerhouses still alive in the West, which should lead to 2 awesome match ups.

So let’s hear it HTR, who’s going on to the final 4?WEST:

San Jose vs Detroit – What a great match up, I will take the Red Wings, but if the Sharks do advance, they may have chased their demons. Joe Thornton will need to be a factor against the Red Wings for this happen.

Vancouver vs. Chicago II – Big rematch. This one will be a beauty, could go 7, I’m going to lean towards the Hawks, in this battle of western powers.


Pittsburgh vs Montreal – I said that Montreal would get steam rolled by the Caps, but they’ve got the hot goaltending, can it continue against the defending champs? I’m taking Penguins.

Boston vs Philly – Two grittiest teams in the East in these playoffs. This series will be an all out war. The health of Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne could play a factor, and Savard will be back for Boston. I’ll take Philly, but flip a coin on this one.

So what’s your picks HTR???
