NHL Review & Preview
Yesterday afternoon we started the playoffs with a bang! I didn’t watch the entire game but it appears to have been a bit of a defensive battle. Barry Trotz continues to impress with his coaching ability. He’s not your type if you like offensive first. Was happy to finally see Vas finally had a bad game. It got scary near the end when TB scored a PP goal to make it 2-1. It made that game real interesting at then. When it’s all said and done we have NYI up one in the series. I think this one is going long!
Well I think we all have our opinions on this series. It has been impressive how the Canadiens have hung in there and are getting depth scoring. I’m not sure they’ve faced a team close to as good as Vegas yet. Both teams have rest as well. Vegas has just about everything going for them. The only way Montreal wins is if Price can steal a game. I think I have it 4-2 VGK.
Well nobody is going to argue if you want to target VGK first and I do. I’m not exactly sure why but I’m thinking this is a L2 game. I’ll go ahead and CPT Marchessault play that line and MAF. Next I’ll target L1 with Pacioretty CPT, Stone, and not sure about Stephenson b/c I want Pietrangelo. If taking MTL I think their L3 is the “value” guys to take. It’s hard to go wrong with any of VGK’s top 3 D.
Playoffs are winding down but I’m still as excited as ever. Good luck tonight!
