2014 Stanley Cup Playoff Predictions


With the Stanley Cup Playoffs kicking off tonight we thought it would only be appropriate to give you a quick take on how we believe the proceedings will turn out. This is the best time of year for hockey and the new playoff system is built for us, the fans. The NHL realized that the playoffs first round was always it’s peak and there wasn’t a ton of interest afterwards. However, with the new system, it is easy to follow and it set up like a bracket, which is perfect for the degenerate gamblers among us. So sit back, gamble, and enjoy some of the most magical and memorable hockey of the season.

As always, when we completely fall on our face and miss on every single round, feel free to troll us and throw these predicitions right back in my face. All is fair in love, war, and sports predictions.
