    On espn.com, Brian Engblom and Bill Clement break down each series offering their predictions. For the full breakdown, go to the site, but in short, the predictions are:

    Blues-Hawks (Blues in 6 b/c Blues accustomed to adversity)
    Wings-Nucks (Wings in 6 b/c experience and goaltenders)
    Sharks-Coyotes (SJ in 6 b/c od "strength down the middle")
    Avs-Kings (Avs in 7 b/c of Avs offense and shot blocking)

    Bruins-Habs (B's in 6 b/c of too much firepower)
    Isles-Leafs (Isles in 6 b/c of a "hunch") <-wtf
    Flyers-Sens (Philly in 7 b/c of Cechmanek, PP, and offense)
    Devils-Canes (NJ in 5 b/c of Brodeur and defense)

    Their picks were pretty much on the safe side with all but 3 series going to 6 games. The Isles-Leafs prediction was a bit interesting since Clement gave the Leafs the edge as far as gameplay, but I agree with the prediction. Actually, the only prediction I don't agree with is Flyers over Sens in 7...I think 5 or 6 is more likely. Comment away. :)
