2018 NHL Playoffs Thoughts For The Past Week!

              So I made the discussion on social media and you guys want me to talk briefly about things going in the NHL. I will try to not ramble on and on with paragraphs but tons to talk about in the NHL Round 1.


              First of all The Toronto Maple Leafs, honestly, I thought they would of done better then this. They had the upper hand during the regular season and beat Boston a lot more then they have been, being blown out 7 - 3 the last game in Game 2.  I will talk more about it on Saturday when I do another sports related blog post.  Tampa Bay I am not surprised with them winning as they are the top team in the East at the end of the 2017 - 2018 Season. Minnesota with their crazy score Sunday night puts them 1 game from tying the series at 2 and they sure a wild card team on my list as I know they can win if they put their minds to it. I was expecting Winnipeg to have more of a lead then this but you never know what happens in the playoffs. Sometimes the odd ball team can surprise you in the playoffs!  


                Now Nashville, Las Vegas I am not surprised they are winning their games, Nashville 2 - 0 lead over the Avalanche, Las Vegas 3 - 0 over the Kings which will be over tonight if they win the next game tonight. As for the Leafs they need to start winning games if they want to stay in the playoffs, I do not expect them to go past Tampa Bay Lighting, that will be a challenge and a half to win but they have been close to winning against Tampa Bay, but my thought is they aren't ready to start winning the Stanley Cup.  Sharks are 2 - 0 lead over the Quackers (Ducks), the game I think will be over by 4 games as they keep on winning, they will win 4 games to 0. Like I said above, Minnesota could surprise the heck out of all of us and start winning. Same goes with the Flyers who have won a game against the Penguins (Sorry Jeff Lieberman)  but anything is possible but I do see the front runners in the series going on, Las Vegas, Tampa, Boston (that is if Toronto don't START winning!), Sharks. But anything is possible and I can see a possible upset but I will leave it to you to guess which team it is!
