Default Re: Contest - NHL Playoffs Contest

Aha! I've not been paying much attention to NHL hockey those last years, but for once we have a contest which is about a real sport and not some strange bowdlerised version of one,¹ I have to participate.

NY Rangers at Montreal
Columbus at Pittsburgh
San Jose at Edmonton
Boston at Ottawa
St. Louis at Minnesota
Toronto at Washington
Nashville at Chicago
Calgary at Anaheim

In cases where I wasn't too sure, I made a choice in favour of eliminating the teams that didn't exist at the time when I paid attention to the NHL and whose logos I don't recognise and who get on my nerves generally speaking: the Blue Jackets, the Predators and the Wild.²

__________
¹ Though a point could be made for hockey under Harry Buttman's rule not being real hockey.
² I am making an exception for the Anaheim Mighty Ducks: I have learnt to recognise their new logo even though I refuse to use their new name.

Be advised I will be under the obligation to declare war against everybody that chose the Rangers if they beat the Canadiens.
