Uneducated Guesses About the 2015 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs: First Round

I’ve been to one live NHL game. I’ve never played hockey or attempted to ice skate. I loved The Mighty Ducks 1 & 2. I had an NHL game for my Game Gear that I was pretty good at and I was pretty decent with the Bruins on NHL ’06. I don’t know what icing or offsides means. I got pretty pumped about the zamboni in Pittsburgh a few weeks ago. If I had to name some of my favorite players to watch as a kid, I’d say Lemieux, Jagr, Sakic, and Modano. I was too young to truly appreciate Gretzky. I hated the Red Wings when I was younger and I think Eric Lindros is overrated.

So with that knowledge, time to pick some winners for the Stanley Cup Playoffs! *
