After a rough start in the Stanley Cup Qualifiers, NHL.com staff members fared much better with their predictions in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

After not one of the 16 finished better than 4-4 in the Qualifiers, nine had winning records in the first round, with deputy managing editor Brian Compton going 8-0, and staff writers Amalie Benjamin and Dan Rosen each going 7-1.
