Greg Michaels: My Stanley Cup Playoff Predictions
As the NHL playoffs are about to begin, I thought I’d see how well I would do with my predictions. Overall, I think it will be Boston vs. St. Louis for the Stanley Cup when that time comes.
Boston Bruins play Detroit Red Wings, I say six games and Bruins win and move on to round two.
Montreal Canadiens vs. Tampa Bay Lightning, I’ll take the Lightning in seven.
Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Columbus Blue Jackets, I see the Penguins winning in four.
New York Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers also go head to head in the first round, this will go seven games with New York winning.
Anaheim Ducks vs. Dallas Stars, Ducks in five
Los Angeles Kings vs. San Jose Sharks, I’m with San Jose in seven.
Colorado Avalanche vs. Minnesota Wild, I’m going with Colorado in six.
St. Louis Blues vs. Chicago Blackhawks I think is the going to be one of the better first round series’ with the Blues taking it in seven games.
Boston Bruins vs. Tampa Bay Lightning, I’m thinking Boston in five.
Pittsburgh Penguins vs. New York Rangers, I’m taking the Penguins in five
St. Louis Blues vs. Colorado Avalanche, St. Louis in four
Anaheim Ducks, vs. San Jose Sharks, my prediction is Anaheim wins in seven.
Boston Bruins vs. Pittsburgh Penguins, Bruins in six
Anaheim Ducks vs. St. Louis Blues, Blues in four
Boston Bruins vs. St. Louis Blues, I have to pick Boston in seven.
Some people reading this might think I'm biased being a Bruins fan, maybe so but with home ice advantage through the playoff and achieving the best record in the league I firmly believe they are odds on for being Stanley Cup Champions.
I'm undecided whether to grow a playoff beard but it worked theoretically during the MLB playoffs as the Red Sox won the World Series. I have until Wednesday to decide I suppose.
Do agree with my predictions?
