DAB Playoff Predictions: The Conference Finals

We’ve come to the halfway point of the 2015 playoffs and have seen sixteen teams vying for the Stanley Cup now reduced to four. Despite our New Jersey Devils being out of contention this year, we’ve been fortunate enough to see two gruelingly entertaining rounds of vintage playoff hockey. As the stakes get higher, the remaining four teams will begin to show their true colors and what lengths they will go to for a chance to hoist the Stanley Cup.
