The Panthers are coming off an impressive five-game win over their nemesis from Tampa, while Boston survived a seven-game series against Toronto to nearly blow another 3-1 lead. The Bruins looked old at times during the series with the Maple Leafs, as they struggled to score over the last three games. The Panthers appear to be firing on cylinders, with Carter Verhaeghe, Matthew Tkachuk and Aleksander Barkov providing a brilliant scoring punch.

  • Hurricanes in six

Each of these teams in the Metropolitan Division earned easy victories in the first round as the New York Rangers defeated the over-the-hill Capitals. It took the Carolina Hurricanes five games to beat the Islanders, but it was almost as easy, as the only blemish was an overtime loss in Game 4. Carolina was often explosive in their series win, scoring two goals in nine seconds in Games 2 and 2. goals in eight seconds in Game 5. The Rangers’ win over Washington was almost too easy because they were untested, while the Hurricanes showed they could come from behind. The Rangers won the President’s Trophy. It’s been nine years since a Presidents Trophy-winning team reached the conference finals. That trend will continue, as the Hurricane’s ability to play tough physical hockey and score in bunches will be too much for the Rangers to overcome.
