NHL Playoff Picks - Eastern Conference

Complete reversal of last year's series. This time the Big Bad Bruins are the heavy favourites. The Habs over-acheieved last year, thats easy to see now. They were lucky to even get into the playoffs. Carey Price is a headcase. I could go on and on about how the Habs should lose. They'll win one at home.
Bruins in 5.
Everybody loves the Caps. I don't. Jose Theodore vs Henrik Lundqvist. As overrated as Lundqvist is, he's twice the goalie Theodore is. Washington has a long long history of folding in the playoffs. This year will be no different.

It will be a high scoring series, with Lundqvist making more big saves than his Washington counterpart.

Rangers in 7.

This could be one of the best series in a long time. Nobody wants to play the Canes. The Devils limped in. They still have the greatest goalie of all time. Then again, Carolina has the hottest. Theres no way this series goes less than 7 games. The Hurricanes are for real, but have a big whole on defence. For some reason, I'm still taking them. Call it a gut feeling. Hurricanes in 7. Call me a homer. Philly's only chance is if Martin Biron plays unreal and Artus Irbe-like. Crosby and Malkin own the Flyers. Special teams will play a big role. Philly is deadly on the PK, and the Pens better find a way to start scoring on the PP. Gonchar city. Pens in 6.
