Spoiler Warning: Canadiens, Islanders crashing Eastern Conference playoff party (Puck Daddy)

This is why predictions are unpredictable. Looking back at the Puck Daddy Eastern Conference prognostications , none of the panelists had the Montreal Canadiens or the New York Islanders in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Hockey News had the Canadiens No. 13 in the East; the Islanders dead last in the conference. Ditto the Examiner . The Hockey Writers put the Canadiens at No. 11 , but the Islanders were still the conference doormat. Yet there are the Islanders, 4-2-1 on the season, in sixth in the conference. Yet there are the Canadiens, 5-2-0, in fifth in the conference. Neither are guaranteed to carry this success through the rest of the 48-game schedule; but both have shown enough in the early going to make one believe they could.
