Jason's put together our annual polls for picking the series winner — with game and fight history.

Eastern Conference

Western Conference

Tom Wilson fought three times against the Islanders, Derek Dorsett two against the Ducks. The Isles only had 16 fights for the season, which means Wilson accounted for roughly 19% of them (if you want to manipulate small numbers).

Dorsett was second in the league in majors, and the most active fighting player (he's more than a fighter) in the playoffs.

The Ducks are the most active fighting team in the playoffs.

My quick predictions

  • Rangers in 5
  • Habs in 4
  • Isles in 6
  • Lightning in 5
  • Blues in 5
  • Hawks in 7
  • Ducks in 6
  • Canucks in 7

As of this post, I'm 6 for 8 in agreeing with the majority of the fans on NHL.com. The Flames have the slight edge over the Canucks and I'm being a Lawn Guyland homer picking the Isles over the Caps.
