The first round Bruins/Canadiens match-up is sure to provide for exciting television. (adrants.com)

With the playoffs here, it’s time for us here at SoB to give you our choices for the first round. Who will move on? How long will it take them? In general, there’s a fair amount of agreement. Seven of the series winners were picked unanimously or with one deviation. The other series was an even split. For those of you unfamiliar with this event, the six participants are scored as follows:

  • Two points are awarded for guessing the series winner.
  • One point is awarded for guessing how many games the series will last.
  • Zero points are awarded for an incorrect pick.

So who will win the Stanley Cup? Who will even have the chance to continue the dream next week? Check below to see how we all think the first round will turn out.
