#3 (3, Metro) Philadelphia Flyers

New York Rangers v Philadelphia Flyers
New York Rangers v Philadelphia Flyers

Why the Flyers will win it all: They have one of the most underrated offenses in the entire NHL. Claude Giroux's move to wing panned out for Philadelphia. Giroux scored 34 goals and recorded 68 assists during the regular season. Rookie Nolan Patrick all of a sudden steps up his game and supplies the Flyers with extra goal support.

The Flyers also have one of the best defensive pairings in the game, in Shayne Gostibehere and Ivan Provorov. Brian Elliott or Petr Mrazek all of a sudden turn into Ron Hextall between the pipes for the Flyers.

Why they won't: They drew a bad matchup in the first round in the Pittsburgh Penguins and their goaltending doesn't make the big save when it needs too.
