If A Village Idiot Made Predictions For The NHL Playoffs, This Is What They Would Look Like

In case you have been living under a rock (i.e. you're one of the many that would rather watch tiddly winks than hockey) than I guess now is a better time than ever to remind you that the most grueling playoffs in all of sports start today (yes, even more so than the NBA, due to the physical nature of hockey). So what better way to commemorate this occasion than my giving you my always wrong and ill-informed predictions! So without further ado, if you want to know who wins, just take the opposite team that I predict and come up with a different number of games for the series to be determined in.

Starting in the Eastern Conference.....

The #1 Boston Bruins will beat the #8 Montreal Canadiens in 6 games.

The #2 Washington Capitals will beat the #7 New York Rangers in 5 games.

The #6 Carolina Hurricanes will beat the #3 New Jersey Devils in 5 games.

The #4 Pittsburgh Penguins will beat the #4 Philadelphia Flyers in 7 games.

Moving on out west....

The #1 San Jose Sharks will beat the #8 Mighty Ducks of Anaheim Anaheim Ducks in 6 games.

The #2 Detroit Red Wings will beat the #7 Columbus Blue Jackets in 4 games.

The #6 St. Louis Blues will beat the #3 Vancouver Canucks in 7 games.

The #4 Chicago Blackhawks will beat the #5 Calgary Flames in 4 games.

Update: I forgot to mention this before in this post, but yes, I will have an open thread up tonight, as I will everyday for the Stanely Cup playoffs and the NBA playoffs when the time comes. So if you want to, please come and feel free to chat about the games. In all likelihood I'll just be like a regular reader and add my thoughts/analysis/commentar/PbP of exciting moments/announcer quotes (although I'll be watching the Flyers local broadcast, don't fret, Jim Jackson, Bill Clement, and rinkside analyst Steve Coates are good for a quote or 2 throughtout games) in the comments section.
