How did I do with my first-round predictions?
I correctly picked 6 out of 8 teams to win their series, including Nashville over the consensus favorite Blackhawk. I was wrong about the number of games it would take to win each series, the Leafs and Capitals matchup being the exception. To my dismay, I was right on the money when I said the Caps would take it in 6.
Here are my picks for the second round.
Washington vs Pittsburgh: Washington in 7
Ottawa vs New York: Ottawa in 7
Edmonton vs Anaheim: Oilers in 6
St. Louis vs Minnesota: Nashville in 6
