NHL Playoffs
We continue to travel a lot including Australia and New Zealand as well as in the U.S. (our current location is Las Vegas) so I haven’t watched as much hockey as I would have liked. However, regardless of the team you cheer for (mine is Vancouver – not in the playoffs) it is a great time to be a hockey fan. And as we head back to Canada I plan to watch a whole lot more.

My team for the playoffs is now the Winnipeg Jets. It’s Stanley Cup Playoff time!

Below are my first round predictions for the 2019 NHL Playoffs:

Western Conference

Nashville Predators vs. Dallas StarsNashville in 5 games

Winnipeg Jets vs. St. Louis BluesWinnipeg in 5 games

Calgary Flames vs. Colorado AvalancheCalgary in 6 games

San Jose Sharks vs. Las Vegas Golden KnightsLas Vegas in 7 games

Eastern Conference

Tampa Bay Lightening vs. Columbus Blue JacketsTampa Bay in 5 games

Boston Bruins vs. Toronto Maple LeafsBoston in 7 games

Washington Capitals vs. Carolina HurricanesWashington in 4 games

New York Islanders vs. Pittsburgh PenguinsPittsburgh in 5 games
