Tonight marks round 2 of the NHL playoffs. With round 1 still fresh in a lot of peoples minds, especially since round 1 just ended for a few teams last night that forced a game 7, round 2 is shaping up to be quite the hockey melee.
We are now left with 8 teams. The Boston Bruins vs. Montreal Canadians will be the series to watch. These original 6, divisional rivals have met each other in the playoffs an astounding 34 times. Montreal has the historic edge of winning 24 of those series, but history plays no role here. Things are tilting in Boston’s favor since they are now a dynasty in the making team. Regardless, it will be a hard hitting series filled with a ton of animosity between fans and players alike. This will be the series to watch.
In the west the LA Kings and Mighty Ducks will also be a great series to watch. I couldn’t even begin to pick a clear winner in this series and it’s probably the closest match for skilled players. I think Anaheim might edge out the Kings, but this is definitely going to game 7.
We’ll have to wait and see how these playoff matches work out, but I am excited for some great hockey as I’m sure all of you are as well.
Stay tuned for an exciting round 2. Can’t wait to see who ends up playing for their conferences. If I had to guess, it’s gonna be Boston vs. New York in the east and Anaheim vs. Chicago in the west.
