2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs Pickem: After an almost interminable preseason, it feels goos for the NHL to finally get their regular season underway...

You know the drill...pick who you think will win each matchup, and in how many games. Correct team gets you 2 points, correct number of games gets you 1 point. This year's matchups are:

East

Ottawa vs. NY Rangers
Washington vs. Boston
New Jersey vs. Florida
Philadelphia vs. Pittsburgh

West

Los Angeles vs. Vancouver
San Jose vs. St. Louis
Chicago vs. Phoenix
Detroit vs. Nashville

So let's see some picks.

And, like last year, I'll be lax on the entry requirements...tis just for fun, after all...

Rangers in 5 (only because they play Martin Biron for a game)
Boston in 7 (Caps could pull the upset here, but will mess it up in game 6)
Florida in 7 (Anyone who can figure out NJ will probably win this)
Pittsburgh in 7 (Pennsylvania Red Cross has a critical blood shortage due to on-ice combat)

Vancouver in 5 (Kings retain some pride by winning one game)
St. Louis in 5 (Tight Blues defense and an inconsistent Sharks offense)
Chicago in 6 (Bienvenu au Quebec, Coyotes)
Nashville in 7 (Maine Black Bear Jimmy Howard can't stop 'em all)

Meatsabre by acclamation for 4 rounds. Thanks, meat

NY Rangers in 5 (I would have picked the upset if they were playing the Caps)
Boston in 4 (I have to pick a sweep in here somewhere. This looks like the best chance for one to me)
New Jersey in 7 (That damn Clemmensen is going to make this last longer than it should)
Philadelphia in 6 (It's not that I want the Flyers to win so much as I want the Penguins to lose)

Los Angeles in 6 (I have to pick an upset somewhere, my American bias tells me to do it here)
St. Louis in 5 (Sharks should be able to win one home game)
Phoenix in 7 (Smith carried me to victory third place in a fantasy league this year)
Nashville in 5 (I hope, as game 5 is the only game I can make it to)
