Sports determine champions in various ways. Many are great, but when it is all boiled down, there is the Stanley Cup playoffs, and there is everything else
Here are my predictions for the conference quarterfinals
First in the East
Ottawa Senators over Montreal Canadiens in 6 games
Tampa Bay Lightning over Detroit Red Wings in 5 games
New York Rangers over Pittsburgh Penguins in 5 games
Washington Capitols over New York Islanders in 7 games
And out West….
Vancouver Canucks over Calgary Flames in 7 games
Chicago Blackhawks over Nashville Predators in 6 games
Minnestoa Wild over St. Louis Blues in 7 games
Anaheim Ducks over Winnipeg Jets in 6 games
Moving on to the Conference Semis, give me Washington and Tampa Bay winning in the East, and Chicago and Anaheim in the West
In the Conference Finals, Tampa Bay and Anaheim with your Stanley Cup Champions being the Tampa Bay Lightning!
Lets see how I fare
