Jaymee Jacobs' picks for the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs:

Western Conference:

Saint Louis vs Minnesota:
 Minnesota. I'm actually rooting for them, because they've got such a good fanbase, and it's time they bring the Cup to Minnesota
Nashville vs Chicago: Chicago. Too hard to bet against them.

Anaheim vs Winnipeg: Winnipeg. Too hot right now not to pick. I believe in this upset.
Vancouver vs Calgary: Tough to pick, but I'm going with Vancouver. Calgary's on a roll, but I don't think they can keep that up to get through the first series.

Which two teams will go to the Western Conference Second Round? Again, hard not to go with Chicago. The team is full of veterans, and Devan Dubnyk of the Wild is an unproven commodity. The other pick is not so easy. I might as well be tossing a coin. Again going with Vancouver. 

Eastern Conference:

Montreal vs Ottawa: 
Ottawa. Hammond's been incredible; I think he's going to carry that through the first round.
Tampa Bay vs Detroit: Tampa Bay. They're pretty tough at home, and they've got home ice advantage.

New York Rangers vs Pittsburgh: As much as I hate to admit it, I think the Rangers will come out on top of this one.
Washington vs New York Islanders: I can't believe I'm going to say this, but Washington.

Which two teams will go to the Eastern Conference Second Round?Again, this is so tough to even pretend to predict! I think Tampa Bay and... man, this is tough. If the Caps can win in six or less, they'll move on. But if it's a seven-game series, then the Rangers. It's a close one. Lundqvist is just too clutch; I think he's going to steal major wins for the Rangers.

Which two teams will play for the Stanley Cup Championship? 
Chicago Blackhawks vs New York Rangers.

Who do you want to win the Stanley Cup? 
 Of course I'll always be rooting for the Pens, even though I know this is not their year. I mean, I want them to win every year! I can't support any other Eastern Conference team. Like I mentioned, I'd love to see Minnesota win, but that's not at all what I'm predicting!

Who do you think will actually win the 2015 Stanley Cup? I'm gonna go with the Blackhawks, Kane or no Kane. They've got the talent and experience.

Who will be awarded the 2015 Conn Smythe Trophy?

Going with Toews, good ole Captain Canada.
