OK, so first off, here is our 2010/11 regular season prediction post (along with award winners, which we’ll check back on later). Looks like we faired pretty horribly on the Oilers guesses as well as the West Conference guesses. However, we did a pretty good job on the East Conference (yayyyy?)! Again, we are Notstradamus.
Here are Steve-O’s and my predictions (Trogdor is away in some foreign country right now… hopefully still alive) for the first round of the playoffs. Feel free to add your own guesses below. As usual, winner gets bragging rights, since we’re too lame to offer real prizes (but this might be a good moment to remind you that we make commission off of purchases from the NHL Shop link!).
Anyways, without further ado, here are our savant-esque predictions for the 2011 NHL playoffs:
|Capitals (1) vs Rangers (8)||Capitals in 6||Caps in 7|
|Flyers (2) vs Sabres (7)||Flyers in 5||Flyers in 7|
|Bruins (3) vs Canadiens (6)||Canadiens in 7||Bruins in 5|
|Penguins (4) vs Lightning (5)||Penguins in 7||Lightning in 7|
|Canucks (1) vs Hawks (8)||Hawks in 6||Hawks in 6|
|Sharks (2) vs Kings (7)||Sharks in 6||Sharks in 5|
|Red Wings (3) vs Coyotes (6)||Red Wings in 4||Coyotes in 7|
|Ducks (4) vs Predators (5)||Ducks in 5||Ducks in 6|
