MayorsManor Live: NHL 2020 Playoff Predictions from The Kid

Let’s do this! For the sixth straight post-season, we’re bringing you a very special treat… and apparently something many of you enjoy very much.

In what has become a MayorsManor tradition, we’re looking to have a little fun heading into the Stanley Cup Playoffs by sharing something a bit more personal. MM founder John Hoven is joined by his teenage son to offer up his own unique analysis and predictions. The Kid is downright obsessed; watches and talks hockey non-stop. As always, everything you hear below was all him. The duo didn’t discuss anything ahead of time and recorded the entire show live in one take. Who wins each of the NHL’s eight first round matchups? It’s all packed into this conversation.

Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Columbus Blue Jackets
Boston Bruins vs. Carolina Hurricanes
Washington Capitals vs. New York Islanders
Philadelphia Flyers vs. Montreal Canadiens

Vegas Golden Knights vs. Chicago Blackhawks
Colorado Avalanche vs. Arizona Coyotes
St. Louis Blues vs. Vancouver Canucks
Dallas Stars vs. Calgary Flames
