Now down to the final four (does the NCAA have a copyright on that?).
Anyways, some quick predictions:
Dallas over Detroit in 6: Detroit has had an easy playoffs so far, dominating against a Nashville team and a very injured Colorado team. Dallas has played a hard series against defending Stanley Cup champions Anaheim and one of the top teams San Jose. Dallas is tougher, they have the best goalie in the playoffs with Turco and a top line.
Pittsburgh over Philly in 6: Philly has been getting great goaltending, all the lines are rolling and they’re a physical team. Pittsburgh finally played a NHL-calibre team when they played the Rangers in the second round, but have also been getting great goaltending, scoring from all the lines and a leadership presence from Gary Roberts and few other veterans. I think the top two lines for Pittsburgh will be too hard to stop.
