2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs: PHT’s Round 2 picks

May 14, 2013, 11:16 AM EDT

2013 playoffs

PHT staffers — myself (Mike Halford), Jason Brough, Joe Yerdon, James O’Brien, Ryan Dadoun and Cam Tucker — did reasonably well with their picks in the opening round.

Well, everybody but me did reasonably well:

Halford: 3-5
Brough: 7-1
Yerdon: 5-3
O’Brien: 6-2
Dadoun: 6-2
Tucker: 5-3

Brough was the overall winner winner chicken dinner, Dadoun was the only staffer to pick San Jose over Vancouver and Yerdon was on the money by taking the ‘Hawks in 5, Red Wings in 7, Kings in 6, Penguins in 6 and Rangers in 7.

As for the commenters? The best shout came from “Raleik,” the only person to correctly predict a quick exit for the Canucks (picked the Sharks in 5).
