Round one poll results - how'd you do?

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Back at the beginning of the playoffs, we all predicted who would win each first round matchup. Well, those are over so let's see how Chowdaheads did, collectively. Starting with the east:

Pittsburgh Penguins vs New York Rangers: Nailed it!

42.9% of chowdaheads correctly picked that Pittsburgh, sans 3 of their top defensemen, would be in deep water with the Rangers in town. Fleury had a great series, but his team let him down. I bet nobody was happy about it. Well, except for those of us who love to pick on the Penguins. We had a great time! And looking at this, there was no faith in Pittsburgh whatsoever. The 5 people who did pick Pittsburgh picked them to win in 6 or 7. The 52 (!) who picked New York generally figured that they would be done quickly. Well done, everyone.

Ottawa Senators vs Montreal Canadiens: We Wanted to Believe

Well, this doesn't look good. Well, in terms of matching with reality. But it's not we who were wrong. It's reality. YOU'RE WRONG, REALITY! Jerks.

Detroit Red Wings vs Tampa Bay Lightning: Nobody is scared of Detroit

Seriously, the biggest mistake most people made in this series was that they picked Tampa to win in too few games. Bless you, "Wings in 4" person. Bless your little heart.

New York Islanders vs. Washington Capitals: Pretty much right

Literally nobody thought this would be a sweep. Most people figured it would be 6 games, one way or the other. Those that picked 7 thought the Islanders would take it, but it's one different vote away from being 50/50. And rightfully so, they were pretty evenly matched. Better luck in Brooklyn, Islanders.

Minnesota Wild vs St. Louis Blues: Heh

Most people did not pick the Wild in this series, and it left them with the Blues. Heh.

Chicago Blackhawks vs Nashville Predators: Nailed it

Sometimes, you just get it. As soon as we heard Patrick Kane was back, we knew that this was all over for Nashville. Which is a shame, as they are fun to root for. It's gonna happen, Nashville. Just not this year. Winning a championship is hard.

Winnipeg Jets vs Anaheim Ducks: Pavelectric

A lot of people gave the Thrashers too much credit, and thought they might actually, y'know, win a game. But they're the Thrashers, and the city of Winnipeg continues having to fall back on the Blue Bombers - currently working on the longest championship drought in the CFL, since 1990 - to make their sports dreams come true. Looking forward to the Milwaukee Jets, y'all.

Calgary Flames vs Vancouver Canucks: LESS GO FLAMS

Many people went with their hearts, or whatever it is BC fans have in their chests, with this one. And how could you not? NHL All-Star Dennis Wideman was leading the charge, and that usually works out pretty well.

Raw Results

Finally, here are the raw results. People could have put in whatever name, so there's I GUESS plausible deniability. Gold is a perfect guess, green is the right team.
