STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS ROUND TWO

Hi everyone!

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

VS.

TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING

 

GAME ONE: TONIGHT AT 7PM EASTERN TIME

WASHINGTON CAPITALS

VS.

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS

 

GAME ONE: TOMORROW AT 8PM EASTERN TIME

SAN JOSE SHARKS

VS.

TBA

 

GAME ONE: TBA

ST. LOUIS BLUES

VS.

DALLAS STARS

 

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!

  1. Now that we are farther along in the second round of the playoffs, who do you believe will win against San Jose and Nashville. Have any of your opinions on who will win round two changed?

    1. No. None of my opinions have changed. I am not sure who to pick between San Jose and Nashville. I am leaning more towards Nashville, but San Jose keeps surprising me.

      1. I agree! I feel like San Jose can win if they keep playing with the same intensity, but if they don’t Nashville will have an easy time tying up the series and going on to win.
