The second round is upon us, and it opens with the anti-comeback kings Vancouver taking on the staunch defense of Nashville. No matter, as both West series were unanimously picked winner-wise. The Capitals were very popular, while Philadelphia gets the slight edge over Boston and their incompetent power play. The East also provided a greater variety of picks for series lengths.
