NHL First Round Matchups
« on: April 07, 2017, 09:56:59 PM »
Two of the NHL playoff series have already been determined. The New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens will meet in one series, while the Penguins and Columbus Blue Jackets will meet in another.

Doing basic calculations described in https://www.thoughtco.com/mathematical-based-nhl-predictions-3116539 here's what I have:

New York -108 vs. Montreal in New York
New York -102 in Montreal

Pittsburgh -135 vs. Columbus in Pittsburgh
Columbus -175 vs. Pittsburgh in Columbus
