Round 1 is finally over and Round 2 match-ups are set. Who will come out victorious and make their way to the Conference Finals?
Here are my Round 1 predictions! Feel free to leave your predictions in the comments.
The Minnesota Wild open the first round of the playoffs Thursday against the dynamic and Central Division surprise Colorado Avalanche.

The Los Angeles Kings opened up the season having to earn a game that was rightfully theirs, beating the Minnesota Wild 3-2 in a shoot out. In a game that was dominated by the Wild in face-offs and shots-on-goal, the Kings were the ones that were able to prove they had offensive advantage. (more…)
