Hulu Inks Sponsorship Deal for NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Tomorrow night, the NHL Playoffs will be underway. Michael Raffl had his first two-point game since December 4.

Sports people from the Western Pennsylvania city have been proud of their team that plays on ice, for good reason. They're just moving it around and having puck speed. All while being the feel-good story in a city emotionally devastated by a mass shooting that killed 58 people days before the Knights' first National Hockey League game.

Can the Nashville Predators get back to the Stanley Cup Finals? The team is 30-11 SU at home this season. It's with a very balanced team. "They have some really good players on that side and they capitalized on their opportunities". Winnipeg's balanced lineup will be too much for the Suter-less Wild to overcome.

The Vegas Golden Knights, the Pacific Division winners, will host their first ever playoff series when they take on the first wild card, the Los Angeles Kings. Both Marc-Andre Fleury and Ilya Bryzgalov were horrendous.

As you can see, there were nearly as many defensemen as forwards practicing today. How they respond to the bright lights and raised intensity of the playoffs, does add intrigue.

The Vegas Golden Knights, the Los Angeles Kings, the Winnipeg Jets, the Colorado Avalanche, the New Jersey Devils, the Tampa Bay Lightning, and the Philadelphia Flyers, are the newcomers for the 2018 postseason. Game 4 - Jets at Wild, Tuesday, April 17, 8 p.m.

There's one problem, they've had bad luck playing the Devils. Unless he improves, this could be a long series.

At the end of practice, it was the fourth-stringers and often-scratched who stayed late to get in some extra practice. While his production has slightly faded since his 35 point season with Edmonton previous year, his combined 23 points between Edmonton and Columbus are decent for a bottom line player.

If the plan materializes, it will also be a threat to the United States as it would shake-up the country's dominance in the Pacific.

Maple Leafs' fans will have to hang on for another year for that long-awaited Stanley Cup parade down Yonge St. However, Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov are ready for another deep playoff run.

Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos were the best one-two punch in the National Hockey League this season.

The Blue Jackets have never won a playoff series and it's not happening against Ovechkin and the Caps, even if their goaltending is questionable.

There's a lot of offensive firepower that will be displayed in this series, but it's in net where the most significant story lies. While this may not have tremendously hurt the team in the regular season; going into the playoffs this could be a major drawback. That sense of urgency was on full display two years ago as he willed his team to the Cup Finals. The Stanley Cup Final series will be carried on NBC and NBCSN. Now comes the hard part after a difficult regular season for Murray: backstopping the two-time defending Cup champions to history.

Boston Bruins vs. Toronto Maple Leafs - A rematch of an awesome 7 game series several seasons ago, the Maple Leafs will be out for revenge this time around. Now, these two Original-Six foes are set to meet again, this time matched so evenly well. This is the moment every hockey fan has been waiting for. A series of this magnitude has a "slobber knocker" ring to it. He should be good to go in Game 1, and his presence gives the Penguins perhaps the best depth down the middle of any team in the league.

Storyline: Can the Flyers be the ones to stop the possible three-peat? These two teams are infamously known for hating each other immensely. Both fanbases don't like each other.

So much so that retired player and former Penguins coach Ed Olczyk said of Penguins-Flyers, "It only takes one player, one comment from somebody, where all bets are off and that gasoline tank will be ignited fairly quickly". Often deployed against one of the opponent's top two forward lines. Look at the Penguins' and Flyers' rosters now and the likes of Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel, Voracek and Claude Giroux are far more likely to beat someone with a slick shot than their fists.
