With a 2-1 win in Game 7 for the Rangers over the Capitals, the Conference finals matchups are all set. New York will welcome the 6th-seeded New Jersey Devils into Madison Square Garden on Monday night to start their series while the Los Angeles Kings will be in Phoenix for a Sunday night matchup against the Coyotes.

I went 1-for-4 in 2nd round predictions (correctly guessing the Rangers would win in 7). I clearly have no idea what I'm doing, but here goes:

Kings vs. Coyotes: These teams play pretty much the same game, but the Kings appear to be the better team on paper. This clearly means the Coyotes will sweep.

Devils vs. Rangers: The Rangers took 14 total games eliminating seeds #8 and 7. I don't see why they'd change anything up now. For that reason, I'm taking the Devils in 5.

So who are you picking for the Cup Finals?
