5. Pittsburgh Penguins 47-22-5: The Penguins are scuffling lately. They are 4-5-1 in their last ten games and have been bitten by the injury bug. Evgeni Malkn is out two to three weeks with a toe injury. The Penguins will only go as far as Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin take them.
4 .Anaheim Ducks 48-18-8: The Ducks could be the biggest disappointment of this NHL season. Remember when they were the points leader in the NHL? Remember when nobody could beat them? Well those days are long behind the Ducks. They probably won’t even win the Pacific division this season. The Ducks could be one and done this playoffs.
3. San Jose Sharks 47-20-9: The Sharks had roared to the front of the Pacific division this until a two game slide has given the lead back to the Ducks. The Sharks have been high seeds in the playoffs before and failed to win it all. Can the Sharks finally win the Cup?
2. St. Louis Blues 50-17-7: The Blues are betting big on this season and the playoffs. Ryan Miller has been a great regular season goalie for the Blues, but it all comes down to the playoffs. Miller is 25-22 with a .917 save percentage and a 2.46 goals against average in the playoffs.
1. Boston Bruins 51-17-6: The Bruins got a little measure of revenge this week as they defeated the Chicago Blackhawks in a Stanley Cup rematch. They are very BIG team. The x factor on the Bruins is their goalie Tuukka Rask. Rask is 33-14-5 with a .931 save percentage and 2.01 goals against average this season.
