Third-Round Playoff Preview
With the second round finally over, it's time to look at the Conference Finals.
EASTERN CONFERENCE FINALS
( 3 ) Boston Bruins vs. ( 5 ) Tampa Bay Lightning
This is the first time the Bruins and Lightning will play each other in the postseason. However, in the season series, the Bruins took 3 of the 4 games, including a decisive victory in one of the Bruins home games. With Roloson in net for Tampa, this might be an even series.
WESTERN CONFERENCE FINALS
( 1 ) Vancouver Canucks vs. ( 2 ) San Jose Sharks
This is the first time the Canucks and Sharks will play each other in the postseason. However, in the season series, the Canucks took 3 of the 4 games.
And now, my picks...
Boston vs. Tampa Bay: Bruins in 7
Vancouver vs. San Jose: Canucks in 6
