The second round of the playoffs begins today, without the Leafs, for some reason. There’s not much in this post, but feel free to keep reading it anyway. Do you want some wild guesses about what will go down now that the most fun series of the playoffs has definitely already happened? We’re clearly not a bunch of experts, judging by our This is how we fared in round one:
Here's how the TLN staff did in predicting the first round! Not so great, besides predicting our own demise. pic.twitter.com/tk43LWuHYk

The best prediction was Nashville in 4, which I have no idea where it came from.
Here’s what we’re thinking about for Round 2.
|Evan Presement||Ducks in 6||Predators in 5||Penguins in 6||Rangers in 4|
|Cam Lewis||Oilers in 6||Predators in 5||Capitals in 6||Senators in 7|
|Ducks in 6||Predators in 4||Capitals in 7||Rangers in 6|
|Oilers in 7||Predators in 5||Capitals in 7||Rangers in 6|
|Ryan Hobart||Ducks in 6||Predators in 5||Penguins in 7||Senators in 6|
|Ryan Fancey||Ducks in 5||Predators in 6||Capitals in 7||Senators in 4|
|Adam Laskaris||Oilers in 6||Predators in 6||Penguins in 6||Rangers in 6|
|Bobby Cappuccino||Ducks in 6||Predators in 5||Penguins in 6||Rangers in 6|
|Oilers in 7||Predators in 5||Penguins in 7||Rangers in 6|
|Jeff Veillette||Oilers in 7||Predators in 6||Capitals in 6||Senators in 6|
|Ian Tulloch||Oilers in 7||Predators in 6||Capitals in 7||Rangers in 6|
The Predators are definitely losing now. If you know any Blues fans, send them our way not so we can apologize. Not one writer here thinks they’ll last six games.
One of Evan or Ryan Fancey will be very wrong about the Ottawa NYR series (or both, I guess, if it goes like 7).
