NHL 2013-14 Stanley Cup Playoffs
 
For the hardcore and causal hockey fans, the playoffs are here

I will say I am pumped for my Avs went from worst to first in one season, capturing the central division title on the last day (thanks in part to the Blues falling apart). I don't think the Avs will reach the Stanley Cup Finals but I think they will advance to the next round

My 1st round picks:

Eastern Conference

Boston over Detroit in 5

Montreal over Tampa Bay in 6

Pittsburgh over Columbus in 6

Philadelphia over New York in 7

Western Conference

Colorado over Minnesota in 6

Chicago over St. Louis in 7

Anaheim over Dallas in 4

San Jose over Los Angeles in 7

Really looking forward to watching my Hawks face the Blues in the first round! Should be a great series! I'm good with most of your predictions but I think Detroit takes Boston to 7 before losing. I also think Tampa will beat Montreal, and that LA will pull a win out over San Jose.

I've barely followed hockey the last couple of years but fuck the Habs, even if they're the only Canadian team in the playoffs. If they lose I'm a happy camper.

By all means I am not a hardcore hockey fan I wasn't really thinking I would be paying attention this year since the Avs were so horrible last year and I thought there would be growing pains, so my picks are really shots in the dark the only pick I am confident in is the Avs advancing to the second round

I like the Avs to beat Minny, but anything could happen with them. They're such a young, inexperienced team who rely so heavily on their goalie... who knows? They're fun to watch though.

Patrick Roy has to be the most entertaining coach in the NHL; his first game he pushes the glass into the opposing coach; he is always speaking his mind along with cuss words on his weekly radio show appearance.....it is too soon to say this but him and Joe Sakic in the front office could be akin to John Elway coming back to help run the Broncos and he turns them around into Super Bowl contenders just 3 years into the job, one must wonder if Roy/Sakic can do the same

Wild in 6 (surprise no 1)
Blues in 6 (surprise no2)
Ducks in 5
Kings in 7

Bruins in 6
Canadiens in 6 damnit
Blue Jackets in 7 (surprise no 3, Fleury will make a fool of himself again)
Rangers in 6


should be good again this year, go Bruins Go !

Cheers !

I absolutely love Roy as a coach -- especially for Colorado. I hope the shtick doesn't wear thin too quickly though.

I would LOVE this.

Also, I don't think St. Louis beating Chicago would be much of a surprise. I haven't looked at the odds, but I've got to figure the two teams are pretty even, in fact from what I've seen more people are picking the Blues to win.
