Round Two Predictions

In Hockey Hits on April 28, 2011 by geespotting

ROUND TWO

EAST

(1) WASHINGTON VS. (5) TAMPA BAY

…Alright, let’s go w/ this round. I predicted a Penguin win over the Lightning, but, Tampa rallied from 3-1 down to take the series in 7. As for the Caps, I said they would win in 7, and they did so in a tough 5. I don’t think Roloson will have it as good as in round one, and the Cap gunners will expose him. That being said, Tampa is a well coached team w/ a ton of Stanley Cup experience, and they should make this a long one.

CAPS IN 7.

(2) PHILADELPHIA VS. (3) BOSTON

…I said the Flyers would get it done in 7 over Buffalo, and that’s exactly what happened. I did have the Habs in a big round one upset, but, the Bruins bounced back to win that dramatic game 7 in OT. Will history repeat itself in this series? Yes, it will, but, not in the form of any comeback, but, we will see another Flyer victory.

FLYERS IN 7.

WEST CONF.

(1) VANCOUVER VS. (5) NASHVILLE

…I was lucky on the first two series for the Nucks and Preds. I said Vancouver would win in 7…and they did, but, no one could have forecasted the 3-0 lead, the Hawk comeback, and all the other storylines that followed this wild one. Burrows buried the Hawks w/ his OT winner. I also said that the Preds would knock off Anaheim in 6, and it happened, thanks to their remarkable defence and goaltending. Despite those Nashville attributes, I don’t think they will get it done vs. Vancouver.

CANUCKS IN 6.

(2) SAN JOSE VS. (3) DETROIT

…No upset in this one either. Detroit was impressive in round one…but, the long rest may cost them, despite the fact that a number of injured players get time to heal. San Jose was not impressive in round one…but, year after year…they never are! Somehow, I still believe that this is the year of the Shark, and like last year, they will prevail.

SHARKS IN 6.

…I was 6 for 8 in round one…but, no upsets this time around, at least as far as seedings go. We shall see!
