NHL Playoffs Second Round Picks

Western Conference
#2 St Louis Blues VS #8 LA Kings
Should be a defensive struggle throughout this series. Get ready to watch a lot of 2-1 games and a lot of OT games in this series.
Prediction: Blues in 5 games- The Blues are one of the best defensive teams of all-time. The Kings have trouble scoring goals. Enough said.
#3 Phoenix Coyotes VS #4 Nashville Predators-This is a tough series to predict as Nashville has the superior team and a great goalie in Pekka Rinne, but The Coyotes have a supremely hot goalie in Mike Smith and seem to be a team of destiny.
Prediction: Nashville in 7 games-The Predators have a little too much overall talent for the Coyotes to handle. Should be an extremely competitive series.
Eastern Conference
#1 New York Rangers VS #7 Washington Capitals
These two teams have met in the Playoffs twice recently. The Capitals winning both series, including last year in the first round.
Prediction: Washington in 6 games- The Capitals are playing their best hockey of the season right now, while the Rangers were lucky to escape the Ottawa series. Look for Ovechkin to light the lamp a few times thisin this round
#4 Philadelphia Flyers VS #6 New Jersey Devils
The Flyers dominated their arch-rivals the  Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round. Will the Flyers have an emotional let down after that great series? The Devils were lucky to escape the Florida Panthers in round one. Martin Brodeur saved his team in the game 7 OT many times. He was looking like vintage Brodeur throughout the OT.
Prediction: Flyers in 6 games. Philadelphia has enough scoring power to overcome their defensive and goaltending deficiencies in this series.
