The Flyers will need a miracle to pull this off. A miracle, and a better coach. Also, a better goalie. Did I mention a miracle?

The Jets back at home with their insane crowd? Stick a fork in the Wild. The Jets are my sleeper pick this postseason, and they’re shaping up to be the real deal.. Plus, I can’t get enough of Patrik Laine.

Colorado Avalanche (Wild Card 2) at Nashville Predators (Central Division 1)

Series: NSH leads 3-1

Time 9:30pm ET

Television: NBCSN, TVA, FSTN

I have a strange feeling that the Avs will go on a little tear to push the Preds.. But when I think logically — the Preds are going to come out and drop a six-pack on these dorks and send them back home to hit the ski slopes. I want this game to go into 3OT, and have P.K. Subban rip a howitzer from the blue-line to end it.
