Well, not to toot my own horn but I'm 11 for 12 in predictions so far, even predicted the right number of games in both western conference series! Just shows you really do have to be lucky to be good. This said, it sure gets harder from here given the teams are much better when it gets this far into the playoffs. Anyway, my next predictions: Boston-TBay - I see TBay winning this series, the B's just don't seem to have what it takes IMHO. If Bergeron isn't 100% he will be sorely missed, he's a do it all type that Boston just can't do without. Roloson will stay hot, and I haven't liked Thomas' game nearly as much as most seem to. I say TBay in 6, but I have to admit I'm not all that sure about this prediction. Both teams have a lot of holes. Van-SJ - again, this is a tough one - the Nucks have played the Sharks very hard this year and been much better in their regular season games. That said, for years the Nucks just couldn't beat the Sharks no matter where they played, so I don't see this being easy at all. The Nucks have a big advantage on D and in goal, but I personally think the Sharks have an advantage at forward. The Nucks are much faster and probably more skilled, but the Sharks are bigger and more physical. I see it as a pick em series - it goes 6 games and the Nucks win though. The much maligned Roberto Luongo will be the difference maker - for a guy who has had a very good playoffs to this point, whose numbers are miles better than Niemi's or Rinne's, and who was better than Pekka Rinne last series (yes I said that, Rinne had exactly 2 great games, otherwise was average) he sure has been taking a beating. He'll be just as good as he has been all year and the Nucks will win.
