Ironically these two teams met in the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals in which Chicago prevailed in the series by a 4-2 margin. Chicago advanced to the 2014 Western Conference Finals where they lost to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings in 7-games. Boston was the winner of the 2013-2014 President’s Trophy awarded annually to the team who accumulates the most points during the NHL regular season. The Bruins were upset in the Eastern Conference Semifinals in 7-games by the Montreal Canadiens.</span></p> <p><br /> <b style="font-size:1em">The Sleepers</b><br /> <span style="font-size:1em">The Minnesota Wild is a team to keep an eye out for in the upcoming season. They’re currently listed at 14-1 odds, and at this early stage, look to be a terrific value. They will be especially a serious threat if they add a top-notch goaltender in free agency, or get any kind of significant improvement from a player in their current organizational structure in that regard. The Wild showed they would be a team to be reckoned with during this past postseason. They upset the Colorado Avalanche in their first round series, and then gave Chicago all they can handle before losing in 6-games during the Western Conference Semifinals.</span></p> <p>The New York Rangers surprised many including myself by advancing to <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/players-talk/2859737-anyone-up-nhl-nba-playoff-contest-like-we-had-last-season.html" target="_blank" title="Dare to Join Our Forum Posters for an NHL Playoff Contest? Check it out!">the 2014 Stanley Cup Finals</a>. Granted they lost to the Los Angles Kings by a 4-1, but the series was a lot close than the final margin would indicate. Each of their 3 losses on the road in that series came in overtime, and 2 of those went double overtime. With a year of Alain Vigneault’s system in place, and a talented core of returning players returning, I highly doubt that you will get any better than the current 15-1 odds the Rangers are listed as.</p> <p><b style="font-size:1em">Free Picks:</b></p> <p><b style="font-size:1em">Western Conference: </b><span style="font-size:1em">Chicago Blackhawks 7-1</span></p> <p><b>Eastern Conference: </b>New York Rangers 15:1</p> <p><b>Sleeper: </b>Minnesota Wild 14-1</p> <p><b>Stanley Cup Champion: </b>Chicago</p>
