2021 NHL FEARLESS PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS SECOND ROUND

2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs

After an enthralling first round (which finally ended on Monday night…are the Canadiens and Maple Leafs still playing…what about the Flames and Canucks), we turn our undivided attention towards the second round of the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Which teams will emerge from their insular division, and face an NHL team they may not have played in months…in a year?

 

In the first round, none of the 17 participants picked St. Louis (good call), Nashville (again, good call), or Montreal (oops).

 

This time around, nobody still believes in Montreal.

 

In the second round, 2 points are awarded for each series correctly predicted, and an additional point for if the person also gets the correct number of games the series goes…if they also picked the winning team.

This is still anybody’s game.

 

Keep in mind this is not a bracket challenge.  We will submit our predictions round-by-round.  Tune in to “Under Review” on SiriusXM NHL Network Radio Channel 91, every weekday at 11 am Eastern/8 am Pacific, for the latest Fearless Playoff Predictions updates.
