The NHL Playoffs are here, and it’s time to take a look at some predictions. Sports would be nothing if it weren’t for the ability to sit down with your friends and predict who’s going to win what and who’s dreams will be dashed before our very eyes. ESPN used to be keen on their hockey coverage but a lockout and a shift towards sensationalism has shifted the four letter network away from hockey.

But there are still legions of hockey fans within the campus of ESPN and they all sat down to lay out who they think will come out of the first round of the NHL Playoffs.
