2014 NHL Playoffs Expert Picks: First Round Results

Montreal got the only sweep of the first round; we'll see what they can do against arch nemesis Boston. (meridian.k12.il.us)

Montreal cruised their way to a sweep in the first round, but they were the only one. Three series went the distance and three others went six. That gave the Bruins and Canadiens plenty of time to prepare, but the whole round was filled with great moments.

Easily the biggest surprise of the round was Minnesota, who became the first Wildcard under the new playoff format to advance. But with our experts leaning mostly towards one team or the other, it was tough to gain points. To do that, picking the lengths of each lengthy series was the way to go.

So check below to see everyone’s results from the first round. And stick around, because Round 2 picks will be up shortly.
