NHL Playoffs 2018 with VMedia

SN-NHL-SCP18_1200x628

The quest for Lord Stanley’s Cup begins tonight. This year, two Canadian teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Winnipeg Jets, are vying for glory.

In an Original Six matchup, Austin Matthews & Mitch Marner lead the young, highflying Leafs against Brad Marchand’s feisty Bruins.   Remarkably, Boston and Toronto were the only two Original Six teams to make the playoffs this season. Toronto enters the post-season with an impressive 12-6-2 record over the final quarter of the season, while the Bruins struggled to a 1-3-1 finish over the final week. Special teams may prove to be the deciding factor, with Toronto and Boston sporting the league’s 2nd and 4th best power plays, respectively.  Is this the year Toronto avenge their heartbreaking 2013 Game 7 loss?

Meanwhile, in Winnipeg, Mark Scheifele & Patrick Laine host Eric Staal and the overachieving Minnesota Wild. With thirteen Jets having 4 games of postseason experience or less, there are significant concerns about Winnipeg’s lack of playoff experience.  The considerably more experienced Wild will, however, be without their most experienced defenseman, Ryan Suter, who is forced to sit out with a fractured ankle.  This could very be a homer series; Winnipeg posted a league best record of 32-7-2 at home, while Minnesota was a very respectable 27-6-8.
