Congratulations to the remaining team who are still in the hurt for
Just like the East, I finished an even 2-2 with my predictions. It wasn’t shocking to see the Predators or Wild lose, but it was surprising to see them put up a fight. Both teams had a lot of holes, but they gave their opponents a run for their money.
My predictions for the Eastern Conference qualifying round finished 2-2. I’m not going to lie: I did not expect Montreal to do what they did against Pittsburgh. It was so much fun to watch Carey Price just shut the door. It was also very satisfying to watch Toronto get eliminated,
