There's a lot to love about a game 7. There's so much pressure and so much tension riding on the results of those games, and the results is some of the best defensive hockey you'll find anywhere. While this may not be very action-packed, it can lead to some of the best hockey games of the playoffs.

On the other hand they can be bracket killers. I went into the final day of the Conference Quarterfinals with the chance to go a perfect eight-for-eight. With two game 7 overtime losses, I fell to a frustrating six-for-eight.

Hopefully this round is better for me.

If you want to read my quarterfinal predictions, you can find them here.

Without further ado, here are my predictions for the four semi-final matchups, all of which are sure to offer some serious excitement and amazing hockey and all of which have been extremely difficult for me to predict.

Additionally, you can follow me on Twitter for news, updates, links, and observations from around the NHL, as well as new articles when I publish them.
