The New Jersey Devils rounded out the teams that advanced to the second-round of the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs Thursday night on the strength of rookie Adam Henrique's incredible Game 7 performance. Henrique opened and closed the scoring in double overtime to end the Florida Panthers first playoff appearance in ten years.
My second round Stanley Cup playoff predictions are as follows:
New York Rangers VS. Washington Capitals
(Capitals in 6 )
The Caps were my Stanley Cup pick at the beginning of the season, I can't look back now. Knocking off last year's Stanley Cup Champions should give the club a tremendous confidence boost.
Philadelphia Flyers VS. New Jersey Devils
(Flyers in 5)
If the flyer offense is anywhere near what we witnessed in round one the New Jersey Devils are in trouble as they narrowly escaped a for less extreme offense from the Florida Panthers. Ride Philadelphia Flyers in any fantasy setting.
St. Louis Blues VS Los Angeles Kings
(Kings in 7)
For me, this is going to be the tightest playoff series of 2012. Featuring my "dark horse" pick St. Louis Blues against my Western Conference Finals pick Los Angeles Kings. Reuniting Jeff Carter and Mike Richards, this is what Los Angeles made the big moves for.
Phoenix Coyotes VS Nashville Predators
(Predators in 6)
So much is being made of the matchup between Mike Smith and Pekka Rinne this series. Fact is, Rinne will badly out-play Smith taking away the Coyotes advantage from the previous round.

THEY DID IT!

SUNRISE, Fl. No one figured the New Jersey-Florida series would end like this a double-overtime Game 7 thriller.
