I had went 3 of 4 in Round 2, selecting Nashville, Pittsburgh, Ottawa. The only one I did get wrong was Anaheim. But great action in that round. Bring on Round 3! Since the first game of the Nashville/Anaheim series begins on Friday at 9pm EDT, I have time before making my picks. They're going to be toughies!

While the playoffs are going on, Dallas Stars made a trade with the Los Angeles Kings. The Stars sent a 4th round pick to the Kings in exchange for the exclusive negotiating rights to goaltender Ben Bishop.

Not my drumbeat, but Pittsburgh's a strong team. I would say Sid the Kid will reach the finals in 7, and predict they would face the Preds.

RECAP

Those "boring" Ottawa Senators erupt for 4 goals in the first period, including three a franchise record span of 2:18, as they pummel the Penguins 5-1 and take a 2-1 series lead.

Sidenote: I love how people are saying the Senators can't sell out their home games during the playoffs. The capacity at the CTC is 18,572, and there was only one game where it was below that number, and it was a Saturday afternoon game.

RECAP

Ducks blow a 2-0 lead in the third period, but Corey Perry gets a fortunate bounce off P.K. Subban and scores the overtime winner as the Ducks even up their series with the Predators at 2-2 after their 3-2 victory. This result snaps the Predators' home winning streak at 10.
