2024 Western Conference Round 2 Predictions

May 6, 2024

It’s time for the western conference, where I went 3/4 in overall predictions and got the team and games right with Vancouver in 6 and Dallas in 7 bang on.

Let’s start with a series that is like sex to a hockey fan. Dallas VS Colorado, this is going 7 I can bet that. You have two teams who have the what it takes to win the cup, something Colorado did just two years ago. Both teams have a great mix of young powerhouse forwards, with vertan depth, solid defenceman and goalies who easily can steal a game for you at a given moment. Colorado ran through Winnipeg in 5 games, meanwhile Dallas had a 7 game war with last years cup champs in Vegas. Fun for Dallas, getting the last two Stanley Cup champions in back to back years, but you know what I think Dallas having home ice and having gone to war is going to help them and I have them going to the Western Conference Finals. Stars in 7.

O Baby, O Canada. We have an all Canadian matchup out west as Vancouver is hosting Edmonton, a lot of people are on Edmonton and rightfully so, they took care of the LA Kings in 5 games, meanwhile Vancouver took care of the Nashville Predators in 6 games. Vancouver will be without goalie Thatcher Demko for maybe the entire series and he will be missed but Arturs Silovs has stepped up for Vancouver but can he handle Edmonton’s power play that is firing at a 45% clip, simply amazing, I say yes. Shutting down McDavid and Draisaitl won’t be easy but call me crazy, I can see Vancouver doing it, Canucks in 6.

Hi, my name is Griff and I'm a complete sports nut. I love to play sports, watch sports and most importantly bet on sports too. If I'm not watching or betting on sports, you can find me on the golf course, between the pipes as your average beer league goaltender. Although sports take up most of my life, I also love spending time with my two dogs, streaming usually a 90's Simpson's or attempting to read more books.
