NHL Playoffs 2015: Round 3 Series Predictions

Round 2 is all wrapped up, and it was a reversal of outcomes in comparison to round 1. In the first round, almost nothing went right, but in the second round, almost everything went as expected. That's positive and negative variance for you in a nutshell.

With the cream rising to the top, I'm expecting the Hawks and Bolts to meet in the finals. An upset wouldn't surprise me because both the Ducks and Rangers are good teams, but it's usually the best possession teams left standing at the end of the dance.

Round 3

Pick: Blackhawks (-109) (2u)

Pick: Lightning (+126) (2u)
