Looks like I'm too late for the confidence pool (I get redirected to everyone's picks, and I can't find a link to make an entry), so I'll give this a try.

Boston in 7 (It's never easy between these 2)

Washington in 5 (Hoping that someone rearranges Steve Avery's face)

New Jersey in 6 (Hurricanes are reduced to small craft warnings)

Pittsburgh in 7 (Penguins firepower shows up)

San Jose in 5 (All Anaheim can do is Duck)

Detroit in 6 (Columbus's goaltender steals a couple)

Vancouver in 6 (For no really good reason other than St. Louis doesn't have much)

Chicago in 6 (Blackhawks have been somewhat under the radar. They finally appear)

The Rangers have a shot if they can get to Jose early. Game 1 would be great, but a win in D.C. is needed before they head home. Caps in 6.

Boston will not have an easy time of it, but will make it through. Boston in 5.

Carolina is white hot and Marty is shaky, so I'm going with the Canes. Canes in 6.

Home Ice should be the edge for the Pens to get by Philly. Pens in 7.

Out West, its tougher to call. Sharks have ex-Ducks who provided depth for Anaheim. Goalies are pretty even. D is pretty even. Forward depth goes to San Jose and should decide the series. Sharks in 5.

I'd love to see Steve Mason de-rail the Detroit Cup Train. Not sure that will happen, but I'd love to see it. Wings in 7.

Canucks-Blues series total number of goals will be 7. All 1-0 games. Who knows who wins a series like that. Vancouver because of forward depth. Canucks in 7

The Flames should pound the Hawks into a pulp, but they are pulp themselves. Hawks will win if the Flames injuries don't heal in time. Neither team is good defensively, so it should be a fun series. Hawks in 7.

Its 7:00 here, the first games are starting. Should I lock the picks now, or give others a little more time to post their picks? I've got no problem letting a few others sneak in after the bell...

I have no problem if you let some people slide under the wire.

posted by NoMich at 07:51 PM on April 15, 2009

A little slide is fine with me. I'd cut it off at the start of third period of the earliest game.

posted by MrFrisby at 07:53 PM on April 15, 2009

Ditto what Fris said. Kind of like the beer sales cut off.

posted by BoKnows at 07:59 PM on April 15, 2009

k, since the first games are over now, guess we're locked in. Good luck to those that got in...

I'll throw mine in, keep them if you'd like.

EAST: Boston in 6 New York in 7 New Jersey in 5 Pittsburgh in 6

WEST: San Jose in 4 Detroit in 5 Vancouver in 5 Calgary in 6
