PHT’s Stanley Cup finals picks — in five words

May 28, 2012, 11:35 AM EDT

2012 Cup

The “five words” motif was decent in the conference finals — everybody got at least one pick right — with special mention going to Jason Brough for being the only one to choose New Jersey over New York.

(Of course, Jason was also the only one to take the Coyotes over the Kings.)

Moving along, here are PHT’s staff picks for the Stanley Cup finals…using only five words.

No more, no less.

Stanley Cup finals: No. 6 New Jersey vs. No. 8 Los Angeles

Ryan Dadoun (Kings in 7): It will be incredibly close.

James O’Brien (Kings in 6): Quick wrestles torch from Marty.

Joe Yerdon (Kings in 6): Go ahead and crown them.

Jason Brough (Kings in 6): Kings can handle Devils’ forechecking.

Mike Halford (Devils in 7): Brodeur goes out on top.

Round 1 results:

Dadoun 6-for-8
O’Brien 3-for-8
Yerdon 4-for-8
Brough 3-for-8
Halford 3-for-8

Round 2 results

Dadoun 1-for-4
O’Brien 2-for-4
Yerdon 1-for-4
Brough 1-for-4
Halford 1-for-4

Round 3 results

Everybody went 1-for-2.

    For once Jason Brough isn’t the rebel.

    Granted…it’s been rather unpredictable this postSeason…but you guys are awful lol one guy above .500 for first round and one guy at .500 for 2nd round…I don’t think I’d have posted thAt haha

      Seriously. Granted the first round was pretty crazy, but those second round records are just bad.

        I blame the coin.

    Kings in 5
    Quick get 2 SO and the MVP

  4. greej1938l - May 28, 2012 at 12:26 PM

    I just wonder if the kings peaked too soon

    Devils very good at disrupting offense, have the experience and Brodeur’s playing like 10 years ago… Devils in 6 [ Rangers fan ]

  6. capsrockva - May 28, 2012 at 1:17 PM

    Devils in 7

    Marti wins the Conn Smythe (Devils in 7, see 2003 results)

  8. ovi8lebron6 - May 28, 2012 at 1:24 PM

    Penguins in 6. Oh, wait…

  9. bensawesomeness - May 28, 2012 at 3:29 PM

    I’d really like to see the home team win the cup , so either kings in 4 or 6, devils in 5 or 7, nothing quite like the home team erupting as the clock winds down

    Kings in 6, Quick gets Conn Smythe

    Keep your day job boys. Predicting series doesn’t seem to agree with you. Devils in 6.
