Cardiac Cane Playoff Pick 'Em

The Hurricanes’ season may be over, but there is still plenty of great hockey to be played in the Stanley Cup playoffs. There are great match ups in both conferences for fellow puck heads to enjoy over the next few months. Of course we here at Cardiac Cane decided to have a little friendly wager within the group and have a playoff pick ‘em! We will make picks for each round of the playoffs and will keep track of who on the staff has the best picking prowess.

While both conferences have pretty good match ups, a couple of notable ones include the Flyers and Penguins for the battle of Pennsylvania in the east, the Panthers and Devils should be a good and lengthy series.
