Dallas Stars - Tampa Bay Lightning
Another of these. As I've said before, the Stars have the capacity to bother the Bolts, but they are underdogs in these games. Tampa Bay wins!
Philadelphia Flyers - Washington Capitals
The Caps have won five of six agains the Flyers. When also taking current trends into considerations, it's easy to decide. Washington wins!
Detroit Red Wings - Columbus Blue Jackets
This is the hardest one to call. Detroit have just been better and better the longer the season has run, and they are a threat to any team, even the the greats at the top of the division. But the Blue Jackets have improved a lot lately, and given the Preds a lot of trouble in the last couple of games. I feel this one could really go either way, but with the goaltending the Red Wings have had lately, I lean towards them. Detroit wins!
Anaheim Ducks - Minnesota Wild
The Wild are much better than the Ducks. If they get something out of this, it's a major upset. Minnesota wins!
St Louis Blues - Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights might be the best team in the NHL right now. The Blues have been really good lately though, so the outcome is not a given. Still, I have to view St Louis as the underdog here. Vegas wins!
Colorado Avalanche - Los Angeles Kings
The Kings have looked a bit better lately, after a bit of a dry run. Against the Avs, I don't think they have a lot to expect for though. Colorado wins!
Arizona Coyotes - San Jose Sharks
The Sharks have looked pretty decend lately. I wouldn't say that about the Yotes. San Jose wins!
In summary, my winners are:
Tampa Bay Lightning
Detroit Red Wings
Vegas Golden Knights
San Jose Sharks
