JJ Husker Posted February 18, 2021 Share Posted February 18, 2021 I don’t know if there is much interest in hockey on Huskerboard but thought I’d start a thread where some discussion could take place. I’ve really been enjoying this season so far. Probably for two main reasons, sports viewing has been somewhat limited/erratic due to Covid but mostly because I’m really impressed with how the NHL is handling this season. Dividing the league into 4 divisions and having the teams only face division opponents for the whole regular season has basically made every series the equivalent of a traditional playoff series. Teams are facing each other 2-3-4 games in a row. This is great for hockey fans as the typical bad blood builds up over the course of back to back games. The games get more chippy and the stakes are raised. It’s like playoff hockey but for the whole season. This coming weekend, Saturday, would be a good time to start watching if you haven’t been. The NHL Outdoors series is having the Avs and Golden Knights play outdoors on the banks of Lake Tahoe. Should be a good time. My predictions for division winners; West- Avalanche (because I’m a fan and they’re scary good when healthy) alternate- Golden Knights Central- Lightning East- Bruins (with Islanders, Flyers & Capitals all possible) North- Maple Leafs Quote Link to comment
