Let's get right to it so I don't leave you hanging in suspense...
The winners of Game 1 of Round 1 are...
the St. Louis Blues!!!
the Tampa Bay Lightning!!!
The Pittsburgh Penguins!!!
Can I change my predictions on at least one of the series?
No, alright, I'll have to live with that the Blues beat the Blackhawks. I'm no glad I didn't pick Blackhawks in four.
For the Detroit-Tampa series: HOW MANY PENALTIES CAN YOU GET IN ONE GAME?!?!
For the Pittsburgh-NYR series: Funny how things go in the playoffs. We were worried about the Penguins goaltending, but guess who had the edge in net this game? Yup, Penguins.
For the Chicago-St.Louis series: All I have to say is this. It's not a Blackhawks Game 1 without OT. Just saying. Its been that way for 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and now 2016.
