NHL Playoff Bracket 2012: Breaking Down the Road to the Stanley Cup

Last spring, I sat down and reviewed the 16 playoff teams, considered different scenarios and made predictions from the first round all the way through to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Why?

Well, my playoff pool of course.

I did pretty well, nailing the winners of every single Eastern Conference series and also successfully predicting the Canucks would win the Western Conference.

To my great chagrin, two months before it happened, I picked the Bruins to beat the Canucks in seven games for the Stanley Cup. Unfortunately, I was correct.

This year, I'll attempt to repeat my predictions with the same accuracy of last year's predictions. 

I've also highlighting specific series to watch in the early rounds, where even with a PVR, there is too much hockey to handle unless you are on vacation.

Of course, if you disagree (and I'm sure many will) with my predictions, feel free to post your brackets in the comments.
