ProSportsBlogging’s Playoff Predictions – Round 1

Posted By Corey Krakower On Apr 14 2010 @ 1:11 am In Around The Rinks | 13 Comments

21 of ProSportsBlogging’s NHL Bloggers and 1 person who knows absolutely nothing about the NHL (Robin, my mother) have weighed in with their first round predictions on the eve of the NHL Playoffs.

In the East; 21 of 22 predicted that the Capitals will beat the Canadiens, with the exception of a bold upset pick by Robin (my mother). Only 2 people (Chris Rydburg, Kevin Lee) had the Sens winning their series against Pittsburgh, the reigning champs. 18 bloggers are running with the Devils, and expecting them to eliminate the Flyers and in the closest series, 15 have chosen Buffalo over Boston, while 7 have Boston over Buffalo.

In the West; only Trent Kondo and Mark Bates were confident enough to predict another San Jose collapse, this time at the hands of Colorado. In the Hawks-Preds series, Chicago had an overwhelming 19 selections of the 22 people surveyed. Even though Detroit is an underdog, 16 people predict that the Wings will make it out of the first round, only 5 picked the Coyotes and 1 writer (Matt Shott) abstained due to his allegiance to both teams. In the closest series, the Vancouver Canucks (12 selections) edged out the LA Kings (10 selections).
