Playoff Prediction Project Part 3

It’s time for the conference finals. In the East, Dwayne Roloson has been arguably the best player of this post-season, back-stopping the Lightning to a third-round battle with the Boston Bruins. Out west, it’s a championship of chokers as the much-maligned Canucks will face the San Jose Sharks.

Wanye went over the standing among writers for the first two rounds yesterday, and I will have a ranking for everyone in Oilers Nation before the Stanley Cup finals begin. Until then, here are the writer picks for Round 3, and please get your picks in below.

Writer VAN/S.J. Games BOS/T.B. Games
Drance VAN 5 T.B. 7
Gregor S.J. 7 BOS 6
Lansky VAN 7 BOS 5
Lowetide VAN 7 BOS 7
Wanye S.J. 6 BOS 6
Willis VAN 6 BOS 6
Wilson VAN 7 T.B. 7

Contest closes at puck-drop tonight.

In the meantime, I know I went with the consensus and picked Boston, but I will be cheering Dwayne Roloson and the Tampa Bay Lightning all the way to Game One of the Stanley Cup finals, at which point I fully expect Marc-Andre Bergeron to dump Tanner Glass all over his awesomely ancient goaltender.
