Stanley Cup Playoffs

Happy Stanley Cup Playoffs!

The best time of the year is finally here! The weather is getting warmer; fans are back in NHL arenas and the battle for the Stanley Cup begins tonight!

It’s been one heck of a year for not just the players, coaches, management, and NHL team staff, but even for us media covering the game basically through Zoom thanks to COVID. Of course, not to be forgotten, you the fans as well and to say the Stanley Cup Playoffs is a welcome respite, would be an understatement. I know I speak for everyone at National Hockey Now in saying that we really appreciate your support, subscriptions, clicks, and passion for the game. …even when it’s shown in anger towards us! Thank you!

Also, just so you know these picks were submitted prior to the faceoff of the Washington Capitals’ 3-2 overtime win over the Boston Bruins in Game 1. Unfortunately due to my Boston Hockey Now duties, I did not have enough time to post them until Sunday morning.
