BST&N’s Eastern Conference First Round NHL Playoff Predictions


There are some great matchups in the first round of the 2014 NHL Playoffs. Competing for a Stanley Cup is a beautiful thing. This is my favorite time of the year, so here are my predictions for round 1. I also want to add that I am not going to do the amount of games each series will take.


(1)Boston Bruins vs. (4)Detroit Red Wings: The Bruins have the unfortunate draw of the team that beat them in 3 of 4 meetings during the regular season. To me; that is a complete non-factor. The Wings got the better of the B’s during the regular season, but this is the playoffs. The B’s are playing better on an otherworldly level right now, and I’m not sure Detroit has the depth to beat them. Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg are proven winners in the playoffs, but they are surrounded by loads of young talent with a lack of inexperience. They are also sporting a goaltender in Jimmy Howard, who is coming off his worst career season. If the Bruins stick to their game plan and contain Detroit’s speedy forwards. I believe they can win this series. Pick: Boston Bruins

(2)Tampa Bay Lightning vs. (3)Montreal Canadiens: This is a bit of a tough one to call so I am going to keep it as brief as possible. I believe the Canadiens will win this series because of their depth up front. Sure the Lightning have Steven Stamkos and Ryan Callahan up front, also surprise rookies Ondrej Palat and Tyler Johnson, but the Habs have Thomas Vanek, Max Pacioretty, Tomas Plekanec, Alex Galchenyuk, Brendan Gallagher, etc. They also have the advantage in goal. Tampa goaltender Ben Bishop has been outstanding this season, but he is injured and will miss game one. If the Habs can take one from the Lightning in Tampa, the series is over. Pick: Montreal Canadiens
