2012 Stanley Cup Playoff Predictions

The Chicago Blackhawks celebrate its Stanley Cup victory in June 2010.

I’ll stick with my preseason prediction of the Penguins taking home the Stanley Cup, but I don’t think I still see the Kings becoming Western Conference champs. As always, the NHL playoffs should be scintillating. I’m especially excited for the Penguins/Flyers and Red Wings/Predators first round match-ups. Here are my picks:

Eastern Conference

FIRST ROUND

Rangers over Senators in 7

Bruins over Capitals in 5

Devils over Panthers in 6

Penguins over Flyers in 6

SEMIFINALS
