After three rounds, I’m at 69.2% accuracy in my playoff predictions, having correctly guessed only one of the two Conference Finals matchups. I’ll stick with the team I got right in the last round for the Stanley Cup Finals.
Los Angeles Kings vs New York Rangers
Rangers in 6
I had the Rangers over the Canadiens in the last round and got that right, though it only took six games instead of the seven I expected. The Kings beat the Blackhawks in seven games, while I had Chicago taking that series in six.
The only team to win two series that I picked against them was Montreal. LA is in that role now.
