MayorsManor Live: 2019 NHL RD1 Playoff Predictions from The Kid

Buckle up because we’re coming in hot. For the fifth 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. My 13-year-old son joins the show 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. We 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.
