I'm trying a new strategy this year.

Tampa Bay vs Columbus: Columbus because it's nearer Canada
Philadelphia vs Montreal: Montreal because it's in Canada
Washington vs NY Islanders: NY because it's nearer Canada
Boston vs Carolina: Boston because it's nearer Canada
Las Vegas vs Chicago: Chicago because it's nearer Canada
Colorado vs Phoenix: Colorado because the team used to be in Canada
St. Louis vs Vancouver: Vancouver because it's in Canada
Dallas vs Calgary: Calgary because it's in Canada

I admittedly don't have a good handle on the playoffs this year. Here are my picks.

The Blue Jackets swept the Lightning last year in a major upset. Tampa Bay will be eager to avenge that loss, and I'm picking the Lightning.

I didn't realize Philly was that good. Given their performance in the round-robin, give me the Flyers over the Canadiens.

I have no preference, but I'll take the Capitals over the Islanders in a close series.

The Bruins have not played well in the bubble. I like the Hurricanes as my upset pick.

I rolled some dice, and I got the Golden Knights advancing over the Blackhawks.

In this match-up of former Canadian teams, I'll take the Avalanche (formerly the Nordiques) over the Coyotes (the original Jets).

The defending champions also sucked in the round-robin stage, but I have to take my Blues over the Canucks.

The Stars, our nemesis recently. I must take the Flames.

Damn, I hadn't realized the Coyotes were the Jets. I guess that shows how much I've been following the NHL in recent decades.

Still, Quebec > Rest of Canada, so I'm satisfied with my choice of Avalanche.

Moreover, if South Park is to be believed, Colorado has winters.

Second round starts tonight! I did so poorly in the first round that I'm probably out of it by now. Here are my picks:

Islanders over Flyers
Bruins over Lightning
Golden Knights over Canucks
Avalanche over Stars
