Red and Black Hockey
Entries with the tag: detriot red wings
In this season’s playoffs, I correctly picked seven of eight matchups in the first round and three of four in the second round. Cumulatively, I have 10 correct picks and only two incorrect. Interestingly enough, the only series that I missed in the second round was Carolina/Boston. As much as I love my team, I didn’t think they had enough to knock off the Bs.
The Conference finals begin tomorrow, and it’s time to get my picks out in the open. This time, I’ll give a little bit of analysis.
First, the West.
I’ll pick experience over innocence. Wings in six. The last time the Blackhawks made a playoff run this deep, Pat Kane and Jonathan Toews were six years old. Their roster is loaded with some very skilled, but very young players. None of us need a refresher about Detroit’s playoff history or the age of their roster.
