NHL Western Conference 1st Round Playoff Predictions

Here are my other predictions for the playoffs.

[1] Vancouver Canucks vs. Chicago Blackhawks

The Outcome: I am going with Canucks in 6 games. Chicago is going to play smart but don't have enough gas in their tank after trying to make the playoffs. Ryan Kesler will play good and so will Patrick Kane.

[2] San Jose Sharks vs. Los Angeles Kings[7]

The Outcome: The Sharks will win in 5 games. The Kings are not going to play well. If their goaltending is great then they might have a chance. This whole series is about defence and goaltending.

[3] Detroit Red Wings vs. Phoenix Coyotes[6]

The Outcome: Red Wings will sweep the Coyotes in 4 games. Nick Lidstrom will play good but I see Henrik Zetterberg will steal the show with a lot of good plays.

[4] Anaheim Ducks vs. Nashville Predators

The Outcome: The Preds will win in 5 games. Corey Perry will be on fire and the Ducks will give all they got but Ryan Suter and Shea Weber will deliver big time with great hits and passes.

The playoffs start on Wednesday.
