The second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs is coming fast and furious. Round one was very interesting. I already had an idea that St. Louis and Chicago were going to play all seven games. While I do like Jonathan Toews I am actually glad that St. Louis won. They have a great team and I am excited to see how they play against Dallas in the second round.
Below are the second round matchups.
(Note: Nashville and Anaheim still have not finished their series. Whoever wins between those two will go on to play San Jose).
|NEW YORK ISLANDERS
TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING
GAME ONE: TONIGHT AT 7PM EASTERN TIME
GAME ONE: TOMORROW AT 8PM EASTERN TIME
|SAN JOSE SHARKS
GAME ONE: TBA
|ST. LOUIS BLUES
GAME ONE: FRIDAY 4/29 AT 8PM EASTERN TIME
There you have it. The match-ups for round two. I believe this round is going to be even better than the first. You have great teams going against each other. I am so excited for the Washington vs. Pittsburgh series. Sid the Kid (Sidney Crosby) vs. The Great 8 (Alex Ovechkin). I believe that match-up might go to game six or seven.
With these match-ups I believe each series might last until game six or seven. Now I’m going to reveal my picks. I was going to do it in a separate post, but I thought why not do it now. Below in bold is who I believe will win the series.
NY ISLANDERS VS. TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING
ST. LOUIS BLUES VS. DALLAS STARS
WASHINGTON CAPITALS VS. PITTSBURGH PENGUINS
I did not do a pick for San Jose since I do not know who their match-up will be. It was hard to choose between Washington and Pittsburgh, but I think it’s about time Ovi won.
What do you guys think? What are you second round picks?
Until Next Time!
