woooo cant wait for these series... best series will be cal/sj, det/nash, philly/wash, mtl/bost i think- entertainment wise.

Too bad NYR couldnt face boston or MTL, NJD is a boring matchup even though they cross town rivals.

Nothing beats watching the habs in the playoffs!!

GO HABS GO

hehe well Ottawa has played very well this year against the Pens so I think maybe they can pull an upset in that series.

And no I am not putting money on that series, just because it is too unpredictable. But some of the other ones I am.

Playoff action has been a lot of fun to watch. If you have the chance, catch the games. Besides the refs making "interesting" calls (which goes along with this whole season), it's been enjoyable. I'm making no predictions because to make correct picks at this point is just luck (even picking Detroit). Round 2 had all 1-goal games so far (although right now Detroit is totally dominating Colorado).

Using a very sophisticated method with I like to call "NHL 94 with 2008 ROM", here are my predictions for the conference finals:

Game 1 - DET (DET 4 DAL 1)

Game 2 - DET (DET 2 DAL 1)

Game 3 - DET (DAL 2 DET 5)

Game 4 - DAL (DAL 3 DET 1)

Game 5 - DET (DAL 2 DET 1)

Detroit in 5

4 for 5 (80%)

Game 1 - PHI (PIT 4 PHI 2)

Game 2 - PHI (PIT 4 PHI 2)

Game 3 - PIT (PHI 1 PIT 4)

Game 4 - PIT (PIT 2 PHI 4)

Game 5 - PHI (PIT 6 PHI 0)

Game 6 - PIT

Game 7 - PIT

Pittsburgh in 7

1 for 7 (14%)

Overall

5 for 12 (42%)

Will nhl94 turn out to be an accurate prediction tool? Only time will tell :P
