Eastern Conference

Caps 4-0 Canes: Caps are just too good right now to lose against a team that barely made it into playoffs.

Philly 4-3 Isles: It'll be a close series between the two teams but Philly has the edge offensively and that will be the difference maker in a short series.

Bolts 4-1 Pens: Bolts are coming in hot on a 3-game win streak while the Pens are on a 3-game losing streak. Unless the Pens turn in around they'll be run over by the Bolts.

Bruins 4-3 Leafs: Both teams are very close but Boston has the edge in offense and like the Philly/Isles series it'll be the difference.

Western Conference

Preds 4-0 Ducks: Preds are rolling and can't be stopped. The Ducks will keep the games close but won't be able to get the win.

Hawks 2-4 Stars: The Stars get a boost in the form of clutch goaltending and their offense keeps rolling giving them the edge over the Hawks.

Oilers 4-1 Yotes: Oilers are on a 5-game win streak and have Connor McDavid. Hard to go against them.

Flames 4-2 Nucks: Nucks win a few games from pure coaching but it's not enough to overcome Rask and the Flames.

Western:
Preds vs Ducks - The depth and balanced attack of the Preds will be too much for the Quacks.... Preds in 5
Blackhawks vs Stars - This series will be a battle, goaltending will decide this one.... Hawks in 6
Oils vs Yotes - Both teams have some injs but Yotes have the most so the Oils will have an easy one in this series... Oils in 4
Flames vs Nucks - Flames definitely have the edge here but don't count the Nucks out just yet.... Nucks in 6
-
Eastern:
Canes vs Caps - This will be a learning experience for the Canes.. Caps in 4
Flyers vs Islanders - The battle of the high octane offensive teams, the Isles should come out on top.... Isles in 7
Lightning vs Pittsburgh - Lightning are just coming into their own and Pens have a few light injs. Should be a good series... Lighting in 6
Bruins vs Leafs - A very close series here if they can live up to the billing... Bruins in 7

West
Preds vs Ducks - Pred in 5. Too balanced an offense.
Blackhawks vs Stars - Hawks in 7. Depends on the Star's offense though, could be an upset if they deliver.
Oils vs Yotes - Oil in 5. Too bad 'bout them injuries.
Flames vs Nucks - Flames in 5. Rask.

East
Canes vs Caps - Canes in 7. Because Fleury gets randomly good at times in POs, and also I don't want to play the caps so I want to believe.
Flyers vs Islanders - Flyers in 6. Too much offense.
Lightning vs Pittsburgh - Lightning in 6. Depth will win out on Bolts.
Bruins vs Leafs - Bruins in 7. Bergeron is banged up but will be back, Subban will be good, Leafs youngins will tear holes in my D, should be terrifying.

West
Preds vs Ducks - Preds in 5. Don't really see them having troubles with Ducks this year.
Oilers vs Yotes - Oilers in 4. Bob is great but i see a sweep here considering all the injuries.
Flames vs Nucks - Flames in 6. I give you two games Vic
Hawks vs Stars - Hawks in 6. Star players Toews, Kane and Keith should carry Hawks through this one.

East
Caps vs Canes - Caps in 6. We are going to lose two home games.
Lightning vs Pens - Pens in 6. Matt Murray and playoffexperience
Flyers vs Isles - Flyers in 6. Talbot may not be that great but offense should carry Flyers.
Bruins vs Leafs - Leafs in 6. PK is better than Malcolm. Bergy is also missing a game or two.

Western:
Preds vs Ducks - Preds in 4. Preds def and forward depth is superior compared to Ducks. Goaltending and top 6 also goes slightly for Preds.

Blackhawks vs Stars - Blackhawks in 7. Both are all out attacking teams, but I see that Hawks are bit better in their own zone and their goaltending is better. Stars special teams are the best in league, but I dont see that helping them too much.

Oils vs Yotes - No predictions. Yotes defense gets real test in this serie, can they handle the Oilers firepower? Bobrovsky is way better than Mason and might be able to win games for Yotes. Oilers PK is great so thats gonna be hard to break.

Flames vs Nucks - Flames in 6. Both teams had pretty good firepower during regular season and both teams come to the playoffs in nice win streaks. I can see that Flames defense and Rask is gonna turn the series for Flames.


Eastern:
Canes vs Caps - Caps in 4. Cant see Caps losing any games in this series. They have scary firepower, solid defence, elite Goalie and good special teams. Canes gonna have hard time.

Flyers vs Islanders - Flyers in 5. It all comes to if Islanders can handle Flyers powerful attacking. If they can they can take couple more wins, but im doubtful they can. Halak also need to perform if Islanders want anything out of here.

Lightning vs Pittsburgh - Penguins in 7. This should be even matchup, both have good defense and evenly matched young goalies.Penguins just need to find some scoring help in bottom 6 and they will be fine.

Bruins vs Leafs - Bruins in 6. Leafs biggest hope is the special teams since they were way ahead of Bruins in those. In all other areas I think Bruins is slightly edging Leafs. Gonna be tight series.

Eastern Conference

Canes vs Caps - Caps in 5. While Carolina had decent run to make the POs, Caps roster consists of several elite players and it will be surprise if they dont make at least conference finals

Flyers vs Isles - Flyers in 6. I think this is going to be a very close series. Flyers have edge when it comes to experience and combined with a bit of luck, it should be enough to take down Isles

Bolts vs Pens - Bolts in 7. Imma go with Bolts here. They have already gave Pens headache in the past and I feel like theyre finally going to crack them this year.

Bruins vs Leafs - Bears in 6. I feel like Leafs are still a team for future and experience of Bruins will prevail this time. It might be the last time that happens though, so they better take their chance!

Western Conference

Preds vs Ducks - Preds in 6. Healthy Ducks are far more scary than injury plagued Ducks. They will be missing Fowler few games, but we expect tough fight to get into 2nd round.

Hawks vs Stars - Hawks in 7. A hack and slash, run and gun, shoot and score, kill and bill kind of series. Likely the most entertaining match up we have here when it comes to pure offense driven hockey. I feel like experience on the Hawks side will help them proceed to next round and even Seguins crazy production wont help Stars this time.

Oilers vs Yotes - Oils in 4. Bobz played 73 regular seasons games. Furthermore, Yotes are missing their best forward-Max Domi and Im doubt anyone will step up to fill his shoes.

Flames vs Nucks - Flames in 7. Nucks will steal 3 wins, thanks to their GMs abilities, but Flames should be able to take them down.
