NHL experts and Preds bloggers predict the Preds and Red Wings series…

2012 playoffs DET NSH

It started on Sunday afternoon when the NHL’s Stanley Cup Playoff schedule was announced on NHL Network. Three experts, former Carolina Hurricanes head coach Paul Maurice, former NHL player Mike Johnson and NHL insider EJ Hradek, sat around the broadcast desk and gave their picks on each first round series.

Then the predictions started pouring in from everywhere else. ESPN, NHL.com, Yahoo! Sports, and so on. So, instead of send you on a wild goose chase to find them, we’ve compiled all of them for you in one place.

And, to sweeten the pot even more, five of the six Preds bloggers who cover the Predators each and every game from bloggers row in Bridgestone Arena offered up their predictions as well. (The sixth, Amanda DiPaolo of insidesmashville.com, declined to predict for fear of jinxing the team. Frankly, we respect that.)

We will add more experts predictions as we find them.
