NHL Playoffs Week in Review Week 5

Hey guys it’s Alex Mesa here filling in for Superk this week because of school and with finals coming up I will be doing the NHL Playoffs Week in Review.

So in the east Tampa got off to a slow start going down 2-0 losing both games at home but took one last night in Washington but remain down 2-1 in the series. I believe that it will come down to 7 games with the Lightning pulling through to reach the Stanley Cup Finals. In the west the Jets and Knights have split the first 2 games in Winnipeg at 1 a piece with Game 3 tonight in Vegas. I feel like Vegas did themselves a huge favor by taking one in the hostile environment in Winnipeg. With LW David Perron a game time decision tonight I still believe Vegas will take both at home and lose Game 5 in Winnipeg but come back home and win. Vegas in 6

Lightning vs Golden Knights will be a great finals matchup because even though Tampa is the playoff powerhouse in this one Vegas could put up a hell of a fight because of Tampa’s bumpy road to the Finals and with Vasy still learning the ropes on how to be a NHL starter against a very experienced Marc Andre Fluery I have to go against my own team here and say Vegas in 7
