Yesterday I posted the results of our CHB Playoff Pool after round one with quick analysis.  See the post now to see which CHB writers are doing well and which ones should just give up now.

Well we’re back for another round of predictions…enjoy!  And check out the end of this post to see how you can once again get in on the fun.

Caylie (@CayKing)

  • Blues in 6
  • Predators in 5
  • Rangers in 7
  • Flyers in 5

Caps will push the Rangers to game 7 because they will carry the momentum over from a huge series wins against the depending Cup Champs, Bruins.

Chris (@lyteforce)

  • Blues in 7
  • Predators in 6
  • Rangers in 6
  • Flyers in 5

The way these two teams are built, I’d be surprised if the systems Sutter & Hitchcock run will allow either team to generate offense.  In fact, I’d be willing to bet that the team who wins the opening faceoff should immediately be given the win as that will likely be the most exciting event we’ll see in each game.  So why the Blues?  No way I can pick the team that beat the Canucks.

Clay (@CanuckClay)

  • Blues in 6
  • Predators in 7
  • Rangers in 6
  • Flyers in 6

Bryzgalov will continue his yo-yo tendencies and bounce back to play like he did in March.  Flyers will overpower the outmatched Devils.

Ed (@edlau)

  • Blues in 6
  • Coyotes in 7
  • Rangers in 6
  • Flyers in 6

Ed didn’t submit any analysis but he doesn’t need to.  After all, as our first-round leader he’s the only CHB writer to match the scores of the top CHB readers.

J.J. (@canuckshockey)

  • Blues in 7
  • Predators in 5
  • Rangers in 6
  • Flyers in 5

I don’t like Bryz vs. Brodeur, but I do like Giroux, Briere, Hartnell, Jagr, Voracek, Schenn, Read vs. Marty and a fairly shallow Devils team.

Lizz (@lizzmoffat)

  • Blues in 6
  • Predators in 7
  • Rangers in 7
  • Flyers in 5

One of my best friends declared that I’m jumping on the Nashville bandwagon with her. Plus no one needs to see poor Carrie Underwood crying again.

Matt (@mattlee61)

  • Blues in 6
  • Predators in 6
  • Rangers in 6
  • Flyers in 4

Washington will make it interesting, but Rangers have learned by now to take a series by the throat when the opportunity is there. New York leadership will carry the load.

Richard (@mozy19)

  • Blues in 7
  • Coyotes in 6
  • Rangers in 5
  • Flyers in 4

Like Ed, Richard didn’t submit any analysis.  But unlike Ed, Richard is at the bottom of the pool and not the top.

Tom (@tomwakefield88)

  • Blues in 6
  • Predators in 5
  • Capitals in 7
  • Flyers in 5

Pekka Rinne ain’t no Corey Crawford.

Victoria (@concretefluff)

  • Blues in 6
  • Predators in 4
  • Rangers in 7
  • Flyers in 6

This will come down to goaltending. It’s two against one with Quick versus Elliott AND Halak.
