Poll: Which teams emerge from the Second Round? - LA Kings Insider

After an interesting if not exactly Kings-Blackhawks Game 7-type showing between the Lightning and Red Wings resulted in Tampa Bay’s advancement last night, the Second Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs begin tonight at the Honda Center, where the Ducks host the Flames, and Madison Square Garden, where the Rangers host the Capitals. Before we get to the polls and schedule, here’s a retraction: my bracket might not be wrong, after all.
