2011 NHL Playoffs Expert Picks: 1st Round Results

Boston couldn't play a full 60 minutes, but they showed that sore loser Pacioretty and that flopper Subban who the boss is. (allpostersimages.com)

The first round was full of nail biters, that’s for sure. Four series, three of them in the east, went seven games. We almost saw another 0-3 team win the series. Boston won after being down 0-2 for the first time ever. And with a sweep, the Red Wings will be well-rested for the Sharks.

The Predators caught most of us by surprise, while the Canadiens, Sabres and Blackhawks nearly did the same. In fact, each conference’s semi-finals will feature a #1/#5 and #2/#3 match-up. So far, the series length is the difference maker, giving Derek a slight lead after the first round.

The second round kicks off Thursday night, so be sure to tune in. And be sure to check below to see how everyone did in the first round:
