Not going to make a prediction.

But, I think it's worth commenting on how amazingly beneficial it is to the wings to have this new playoff format. Their point total would have made them the 8 seed in the old format. Re-seeding after every round would put them in a very tough position to advance even if they were able to knock off a team like Washington in the first round.

Now, their first round opponent is the equivalent of a 6 seed. And if they advance, they get either the equivalent of a 3 or 5 seed.

Philly, on the other hand, as an equivalent 7 seed, faces a 1 and then either the 2 or the 4.

I've bet on the Blues twice before and they haven't proven their ability to get beyond the 2nd round. It seems like they're due for a conference final or Stanley Cup, but I still don't trust this squad.

I would love a final four of St. Louis, San Jose, Florida and Washington. But more likely to go 0 fro 4 on that than 4 for 4.

As for Wings-Tampa, I predict Pavel will get injured late in Game 2 to  finish his  NHL career, without a chance for a couple of more games at the Joe.

i predict AA will score the tying goal in the 2nd period of Game 5 but will then be benched until late in regulation when he is asked by Blashill to serve a bench minor penalty for too many men on the ice.  AA will fly out of the box when his penalty expires and score the winning goal on a breakaway with 30 seconds to go. That will be his last icetime of the series.

Taking a 3-goal lead into the 3rd period of Game 7, Blashill will shorten his bench by giving Kronwall and Ericsson 18 3rd period minutes each. This will cause the Wings to give up 4 goals and lose, the last one coming when a clearing attempt by Amdersson is intercepted and a shot from the point bounces in off Glendenning.
