Posted February 06, 2018 06:23:20 The NHL’s playoff picture is looking bright, with a host of teams in contention for the Stanley Cup.
However, with only six teams left to play, many are still waiting for the NHL to announce who will be playing in their first round matchups.
With the season already in the books, here are the five storylines that need to be addressed in the coming weeks:1.
The playoffs will end on a Sunday The NHL announced Monday that the playoffs will conclude on a Wednesday, with the teams battling for a spot in the Stanley to be determined on the final day of the regular season.
This will end the playoffs and the Stanley, but it will not be over until Wednesday night.
Playoff teams will continue to play until a date is determined and a date set for the second round, when the teams will meet again.
This means that the final two games of the playoffs have a playoff format, which means that any game played in the second half of the season will not count.
The league announced it would “continue to work with the National Hockey League to ensure the postseason schedule does not impact the game-day schedule.”2.
The playoff schedule will be changed This is a major concern for many fans who want the playoffs to end as soon as possible.
The NHL said it will begin working on a playoff schedule that will “move the game date to a later date.”
The league also announced it will work on “a change to the playoff format for the 2017-18 season to allow for a more regular-season schedule.”
The format of the first two rounds of the postseason will be the same as it was in 2015-16, but the playoffs for the last two rounds will not play out until April and May.
The last round will also play out in March, and the teams that finish with the best records in the regular- and postseason-seasons will play in the semifinals.3.
The new playoff format is not the same for the Western Conference and the Eastern ConferenceThe conference-leading Anaheim Ducks will play host to the Colorado Avalanche in the first round of the Stanley.
The Avalanche won the Presidents’ Trophy and the Hart Trophy in 2016-17 and have made the playoffs the past two seasons.
The Ducks won the Stanley in 2016, and in a season that ended with a record of 28-23-8, they have a shot to win the Cup.
The Avs have made it to the Stanley final in three of the last four seasons, and they finished last in the Eastern conference in 2016 with a 24-27-6 record.
The Capitals won the Cup in 2014, and their chances of making it to a second straight Stanley final have dropped significantly.4.
The Stanley will remain a game in the mind of the fansThe game will remain the same, even if it’s a different format.
In a league that prides itself on having a fan-driven product, fans are tired of hearing the same game played over and over again.
The schedule and the game will be different, but fans will still be able to tune into games on a regular basis.
The Ducks will continue playing the game they have played for years, and it will be up to fans to determine the outcome of the games they choose to watch.5.
The first two playoff rounds will be played in Los Angeles and AnaheimThe teams from the Pacific and Western Conference will be facing off in the Los Angeles area, which is located about 40 miles south of downtown Los Angeles.
This is an interesting matchup, since both teams are expected to play for the West Cup, which will be awarded to the teams with the top two finishes in the standings.
The Pacific won the 2017 Presidents’ Cup and the Western conference has had a banner season, finishing second in the Pacific, and fifth in the Western division.
The Anaheim Ducks have won the West’s Presidents’ Challenge and are a potential contender in the Ducks’ chase for a third straight Cup.6.
The Vegas Golden Knights will win the first game of the seriesThe first game in this series will be a rematch of last year’s Stanley Cup Final.
Vegas won in five games last year and won the first series 4-1.
the Golden Knights have not played a game this year.
Vegas has not won in Los Vegas since the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and is in the midst of a long road trip.
The Kings, who lost in the 2016 series, are expected a strong showing in the series.
Vegas is expected to win 3-2.7.
The Philadelphia Flyers have been in the playoffs three years in a row, but they did not win a playoff series in 2017.
The Flyers are in a similar situation this year, and will likely be looking to rebound from a disappointing season.8.
There will be some upsets The league has decided that the best way to determine which team will play which team is by using the “score-first” rule
