Predictions for Round 3

Time for the Conference Finals - winning now is only one step closer to playing for Lord Stanley's Cup.

Western Conference
San Jose v. Calgary
Calgary hoists all Canada's pride by being the remaining Canadian franchise in the playoffs. San Jose and their "no-namers" have made it this far in a gritty system well-coached by Ron Wilson. Calgary is hoping to beat the system with upcoming stars such as team Captain Jarome Iginla and Robyn Regehr with former Sharks goalie Kiprusoff.
Prediction: Sharks in 6
Eastern Conference
Tampa Bay v. Philadelphia
Much to my disappointment, Philadelphia is in the Conference finals. I can't stand this team. Though, they seem to be building a line chemistry with the "ex-Chicago" line Zhamnov, Roenick and Amonte. Tampa Bay are riding high on the "safe is death" philosophy. Martin St. Louis can clinch the Hart Trophy (NHL MVP) by stepping up and sending the Flyers home packingPrediction: Lightning in 6
