Calling my shots is the kiss of dead for me but I’ll play.  Sorry for jinxing these teams in advance.

I’ve got a feeling about NYR.  They’re gamers.  7 games against Carolina.

Hard to bet against Maroon at this point until proven otherwise.  The Bob/Vas duel will be great.

Obviously Colorado and I think Calgary edges out Edmonton.

Sorry Colorado in 5 and Calgary in 7

Good choices. I would like to see Calgary out, but they will advance to the next round unfortunately. confused

I really, really like Sam Reinhart and wish he was in a Wings sweater.
Bolts in seven.

The Bunch of Jerks in seven games as well.

BBBBs versus the Dives.  Barf, but it is Sakic’s team in six games.

Calgary outta there in seven games.

Went 7-1. Only got one of the total games right though

COL in 6
CGY in 7
CAR in 5
TB in 6

If Point is injured this might give the edge to FLA but I still dont think they can beat Vasilevskiy, especially with how they played against WASH

5 for 8 last round.

Florida vs. Tampa Bay Florida in 7   This is going to be an epic series I think. Bryden Point injury is the key.
Carolina vs. New York Rangers Carolina in 7 (guessing not knowing the injuries)
Colorado vs. St. Louis Colorado in 6 I think they easily get to Biddington.
Calgary vs. Edmonton Calgary in 6 Calgary’s forecheck takes it to them, and Mike Smith’s limbs break off in this series.

7 of 8 last round, but only got the # of games right in the St. Louis series.

Colorado in 7 - I was close to calling this for the Blues, but their D is pretty beat up and I give the goaltending edge to the Avs.

Calgary in 6 - definite goaltending edge

Carolina in 6 - Rangers were lucky to escape round one

Tampa in 7 - they looked tired last round and still took out a high-octane team… experience counts here.
