NHL Predictions

Below are the 2017 NHL Playoff Predictions. Remember these are just predictions. A lot can change from now till the end of the season. Maybe the Toronto Maple Leafs will fall out of contention. I am predicting the Leafs will string together some wins and finish 3rd in the Atlantic division.  The Bruins will be the 8th seed with just beating out the New York Islanders and Florida Panthers.
