Didn’t make picks in the opening round, bkz it was such a crapshoot.

Philadelphia over Montreal in 5 - Price can only carry a team so far
Columbus over Tampa in 6 - CBJ coming in with some fire in the belly.
Washington over NY Islanders in 6 - Caps find their game and start to roll.
Carolina over Boston in 7 - Some amount of wishful thinking, and hopefully the Canes’ goaltending holds up. But Boston looked a bit out of sorts in the round robin.

Vegas over Chicago in 5 - Glad the Hawks aren’t in the Laf Lotto. Now go away.
Colorado over Arizona in 5 - Yotes are on the right track, but COL are too deep
Calgary over Dallas in 7 - Another dose of hope in this one. Neither team has looked impressive.
St. Louis over Vancouver in 6 - Canucks kids will make a series of it, but STL defense is too good.

I don’t have a horse in this year’s playoffs, but that Isles vs. Caps series is one to watch.

I was 2 for 8 and after that abysmal showing and guessing the Hawks would win the lottery I am going to take off the Carnac hat and shuffle away in shame.
