2013 SpoFi Stanley Cup Pickem - first round edition: This is the last time you'll see the Wings and Blue Jackets play 10:30 playoffs games..OK, just the Wings, but I, for one, will not miss them...

Ok, it's simple: pick the winner of each playoff matchup, and how many games each series will go. You'll get 2 points for picking the winner, and 1 point for the number of games (you do not have to get both right to get the three points, they are mutually exclusive). Here are the matchups, higher seed to the left...

Pittsburgh vs NY Islanders
Montreal vs Ottawa
Washington vs NY Rangers
Boston Vs Toronto

Chicago vs Minnesota
Anaheim vs Detroit
Vancouver vs San Jose
St Louis vs Los Angeles

So get those picks in. I'll be lax on cutoff, because games start tomorrow night, but not *too* lax. Good luck...

Pittsburgh in 5 Montreal in 6 Rangers in 5 Boston in 6 (sorry, Toronto-ites)

Chicago in 5 Detroit in 6 Vancouver in 7 St Louis in 5

Disclaimer - using these picks to assist in your own choices would be like asking Charles Manson for parenting advice.

OK, here goes the annual exercise in futility:

Pittsburgh in 6; NYI prove surprisingly stubborn.
Ottawa in 6; The upset special of the 1st round, Les Habs defensive woes continue.
Rangers in 7; Despite the job Adam Oates has done in DC, NYR finally get their act together.
Boston in 5; As badly as they've played of late, Bruins still have the Leaf's number.

Blackhawks in 5; Wild win one to maintain their dignity.
Anaheim in 7; Detroit will play some good hockey, but won't survive.
San Jose in 6; Vancouver's problems in goal will surface once again.
Blues in 7; This one is for my Rheumatologist who is a huge St. Louis fan.

Unlike last year, I can't blame any errors on my cats. They're too busy looking out the windows at a really nice spring day.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? The Leafs and Islanders are in and the Devils and Flyers are out!?!*

Islanders in 6 (somebody has to take Isles)
Montreal in 5
Washington in 7 (2 games where Tortorella has "no comment")
Boston in 4

Chicago in 5 (and for the first time ever I will be happy to see Parise's first round exit tears)
Detroit in 7
Vancouver in 6
St Louis in 6 (f**k the Kings)


*According to MSG Network, the is the first time that the Devils and Flyers will miss the playoffs in the same year.

Here is a good tie breaker for next year: Predict the cup winner and in how many games.

I have the Pens in 22 in a pool i am in.
