Washington Capitals

The battle for the Stanley Cup kicks off in less than a month, on Wednesday, April 11. While there are still several teams battling to secure a playoff spot in the Western Conference, teams in the East are fairly well decided. Best Odds to Win the Stanley Cup This season, three of the four 2016-17 division winners–the Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Blackhawks and Anaheim Ducks will miss the playoffs. Only the Washington Capitals will compete again, though they're fighting for first place in the Metropolitan Division with the Pittsburgh Penguins. This year’s new regime of division winners includes the Tampa Bay Lightning, Nashville Predators and the Vegas Golden Knights who only existed on paper a year ago. So many things have to go right for a team to win the 16 games it takes to hoist the Cup: a healthy, talented roster; getting hot at the right time; and a goalie finding his confidence; even lucky bounces. While any of the 16 teams that make the postseason have a shot...

Golden Knights Prospects

The Vegas Golden Knights have been nothing short of sensational throughout their inaugural NHL season, and it appears as though more help is well on its way. Although the Golden Knights boasted a bevy of first-round selections in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, it is the play of Vegas' natural second-round choice which has caught the attention of the hockey world. Originally projected to be chosen in the opening round of the event, Nic Hague fell outside of the top-31 and into the hands of the Golden Knights, who nabbed the towering defender without hesitation at 34th overall. Known for his rugged style of play and intimidating physicality, Hague was thought to be a long-term project for Vegas yet one certainly capable of reaching the NHL-level in the near future. However, Hague has shattered this timeline owing to his play throughout the 2017-18 season, as the youngster has developed into a devastatingly potent two-way defenceman. As the first Ontario Hockey League defender to...

Vegas Golden Knights

Even if they haven’t started yet, the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs are upon us. Champions are being predicted as we speak, first-round match-ups are being projected and, most importantly, teams are jockeying for position. It’s not as simple as winning down the stretch anymore. Legitimate contenders may draw especially hot opponents who have peaked at the right time. Darkhorses who may otherwise have an easier path to a championship may find themselves in especially tough divisions and run into teams that are simply better. Which position is your team in? Pretty good if they’re on this list of the top five teams to avoid in the playoffs. Not so much, if they’re poised to play one of them instead. 5. Las Vegas Golden Knights (44-19-5) Everyone expects the expansion Las Vegas Golden Knights to collapse down the stretch, and, to a certain extent they have, going 3-3-1 over their last seven. Yes, that’s what passes for collapsing down the stretch for the division leader with...

Vegas Golden Knights

With fewer than 20 games left on the schedule, the Vegas Golden Knights have little time to bask in the jackpot euphoria their inaugural season has produced. A division title in year one is nothing short of remarkable and as such, they will soon face a level of playoff pressure no team in their position has ever had to contend with... What once was assuredly treated as crazy talk – if I'm being honest –  now represents the collective nightmare for a team in its first season...expectations change. A first-round playoff exit for the Golden Knights would now be a very tough pill to swallow. Having catapulted themselves up hockey's hierarchy in record time, they have brought upon themselves a level of pressure nobody expected them to have to contend with until well into the future. With so much to be decided between now and the end of the season, neither players or coaches have been willing to even discuss playoffs, instead choosing to focus on each remaining game as it...
