Conference Finals Predictions

May 11, 2018

Down to our final four…

The Western Conference again has made us think the hardest about who will go through as we’re nearly split on whether the Jets or Golden Knights will reach their first Cup Final. In the East, we’re convinced, overall, that the Lightning’s recent experiences at this late stage will get them past the Capitals.

Series Picks Average # of Games
TBL 12 WSH 2 6.00
VEG 6 WPG 8 6.50
