Stanley Cup Playoffs first predictions



In terms of round-robin, six predicted Vegas Golden Knights would finish No. 1 in the West; only one (Mike G. Morreale), correctly selected the Golden Knights to finish No. 1 in the West and the Philadelphia Flyers to finish No. 1 in the East.

But they are back to try again for the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, which begins on Tuesday. (link to schedule)
