No Repeat Stanley Cup Champion in 2013

LA Kings Ice GirlThe LA Kings had a great run during last year’s NHL playoffs and although their team has remained relatively the same, they have played mediocre hockey all year.

Although some people may consider them a 2013 NHL playoff sleeper pick, the Kings will be hard pressed to even make it out of the first round of the playoffs this time around. Even if they do, they are likely toast in the Conference Semi-Finals.

No Major Upsets in 2013

Many will predict a Pittsburgh 1st round knockout especially with so many of the Penguin stars being injured recently. But, they have proven depth that has continued to play well late in the NHL regular season even with many of their stars not in the lineup. Expect the Penguins to breeze to round 2. And, any team that plays Chicago in round 1 doesn't stand a chance. One of our 2013 NHL playoff predictions is most top seeds will win their first series.

An original Six team will win the Stanley Cup in 2013

No Cinderella Team This Year

Another one of our 2013 NHL playoff predictions is that there will be no "Cinderella Team" this year. Unlike the past NHL playoffs that has seen a team that barely squeaked into the playoffs making a run at the cup, this year will have more of the NHL favorites playing late into the post season.

Don’t get too excited Canada

No Canadian Teams Will WinAlthough we pick an original 6 team to win the 2013 Stanley Cup, it won’t be the Montreal Canadiens or the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs will continue to extend their streak of futility and Montreal, although they could make a bit of a run if Carey Price can stand on his head in net, will still not be bringing the cup north of the border. The only hope this year will once again be the Vancouver Canucks - but don't bet on it.
