Today, From the Press Box:

We take a look at the first round of NHL Playoff matchups. If upsets are going to happen, they are more likely to happen in the next two weeks. In addition, we want to remind you to have a plan when compiling your own fantasy owners.

The recommended strategy for playoff pools is two-fold. You need to focus on the four teams that you think will reach the Conference Finals, meaning that you will get at least three rounds of play out of your picks. In playoff pools you really need to get at least three of your "final four" team picks correct. In addition, you can feel confident about drafting from the top two forward lines and top two defense pairs from those teams.
