NHL Playoff Power Rankings: Elite 8 Predictions

#1 Pittsburgh vs. #7 Ottawa
(Pittsburgh in 7)
If there is an upset special the Senators could be the team. This will be a high-scoring series with multiple overtime games.

#4 Boston vs. #6 NY Rangers
(Boston in 6)
The power of “Boston Strong” could will the Bruins to victory. The Rangers have the advantage in net but can’t score any goals. This will be a black and blue series.

#1 Chicago vs. #7 Detroit
(Chicago in 7)
The Chicago Blackhawks would dominate any other team, but the Detroit Red Wings will bring something special to this series. All bets are off with this match up.

#5 Los Angeles vs. #6 San Jose
(Los Angeles in 6)
This is a toss up, but the San Jose Sharks choke factor makes me want to pick Los Angeles. Plus the Kings have the edge in net.
