The Athletics 2020 NHL playoff predictions for the second round – The Athletic

Without a moment to blink between rounds, the conference semifinals begin with the final eight teams.

So that means it is time for The Athletic’s crew of hockey scribes to make their predictions for the second-round matchups – Flyers vs. Islanders and Lightning vs. Bruins in the East. Golden Knights vs. Canucks and Avalanche vs. Stars in the West.

Looking back, this didn’t always go well.  The group was incredibly confident that Montreal and Chicago were going to exit in the round robin.

But, the favorites to win the Stanley Cup have not changed since the beginning.  We are sticking with Colorado and Tampa Bay.

Here is a breakdown of our voting:
