The first round was intense as five series went seven games and two ended in overtime, FOX Bet associate trader Steven Hemke pointed out.

“The second round will feature some tired teams, but we have some very intriguing matchups, including the Battle of Alberta, Calgary vs. Edmonton, and the fun Alligator Alley Series featuring the Panthers and defending champion Lightning,” Hemke said.

Hemke stated the series to watch was between the Florida Panthers, winners of the Presidents’ Trophy (best regular-season record) and the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning. Plus, both teams are based in Florida.

“To me, this is the most interesting matchup, a rematch from last year when the Lightning prevailed in a heated six-game series,” Hemke explained. “The Panthers, like most young teams, must dethrone the champs in what should be a high scoring, entertaining, end-to-end series. Both teams feature excellent special teams and top-end talented, loaded rosters.

“The difference to me is in between the pipes where the Lightning have a huge advantage with last year’s Conn Smythe Trophy playoff MVP Andrei Vasilevskiy facing the top-scoring team in the league this season. I will take Tampa Bay in seven games here with Vasey being the difference-maker.”

The other series are St. Louis Blues vs. Colorado Avalanche and New York Rangers vs. Carolina Hurricanes.

FOX Bet sports trader AJ Devine backed the Rangers to win it all before the postseason started.
