In the NHL’s decision, playoff events are discussed.
Included in the council are journalists Tommi Koivunen, Sami Hofren and Ville Touru who follow Tala League closely.
Miro Heiskanen shines as the king of playoff game time (28.15). In the stoppage game against Seattle, Hiskanen’s performance was perfect, even though the load was shocking: 32:07 and five turnovers that lasted at least a minute and 50 seconds. impressive performance. Only the target was missing, even though the top irons faltered in the opening set. A few goals in the Vegas net won’t hurt the ultimate dream.

Sun Belt Showdown. There’s no celebration in Canada or the traditional disc market this year, instead the pitcher is basking in the sun. Carolina, Dallas, Florida or Vegas are not known for their snow sports. Well, it’s modern and futuristic, because there won’t be snow anywhere.
The conference finals focused on the three Finnish number one centers. In the series between Carolina and Florida, we will also see an interesting and important struggle in the background for the final result of the series: will the series of Jesperi Kotkanemi or Anton Lundell be able to produce more results?

Tej Thompson and Matthew Tkachuk, who were born in the Phoenix area of Arizona, and Auston Matthews, who grew up in the state, could assemble a pretty doomsday offensive line. A harsh doomsday call also came for the Arizona Coyotes, when the Tempe Arena and Recreation Center project failed to pass further crushing in a local vote. The vote on the day of the vote regarding the Coyotes’ ownership ladder and the NHL was indeed sad, but the next day already talk began to grow that once again the Coyotes are looking for a new home, specifically in Arizona.
A bit of a crowded bet for this spot, but let’s still raise the elimination of both Canuck teams as a surprise, as I believed in a showdown between Edmonton and Toronto in the finals. This time too it was not enough. In both clubs, the focus is not only on the key players, but above all on the coaching. Jay Woodcroft of the Oilers and Sheldon Keefe of the Leafs were buzzing. The finale of the conference became the show of the knockout.
Jack Eichel has blown the earth off his first career playoff spring. The spring dance in Buffalo was a whim, but in Vegas Eichel Knight shines as the number one piece of the army. Against his former foe, Conor McDavid, Eichel put on a stellar performance. Currently, Eichel ranks sixth in the points market: six goals and 14 points in 11 games.
What’s happening in Toronto? or will something happen? Winning a singles series in the hottest pressure cooker in the brewing universe wouldn’t be a bit hot. Falling to the Leafs in the second round is a poor squat considering the stakes and expectations. Leafs GM Kyle Dubas’ closing press was difficult to watch. A man who seems to need a break has spoken on stage.
In the Conference Finals, you will see an exceptionally large amount of Finnish talent on the ice, but there is also Harmala talent on the puck behind the bench. Florida Panthers assistant coach Tuomo Rutu is writing quite the story right now. Following his playing career, the 40-year-old Rutu has quietly made his way into the NHL as a coach. The coaching of the Panthers with the addition of Box remained brand new for this season.
The Arizona Coyotes were supposed to get a new sanctuary, but the arena project failed. Incredible wandering around the same organization year after year. Well, isn’t the NHL once again pulling some emergency aid movement so that the club can continue in the same village despite the problems.
The advancement of four Southern teams to the Conference Finals is not an ideal situation for the NHL from a viewership perspective. The fact that the northernmost club in the top four is the Vegas Golden Knights says a lot about the situation.
13 games, 19 points (9+10). Roop Hintze, the current top scorer in the entire NHL, is having a blood-stopping spring. If Dallas makes it to the Finals, Hintz could also break the all-time finish single spring point record, which was Jari Kurr’s 31 points from 1985 and 1988.
In many ways, there are high hopes for the Carolina-Florida series. Apart from meeting the Finnish number one centres, the series should also be exciting in terms of play. The biggest strength of these two is their fast-paced and exploitative game. Which one works better now? There is hardly any chance to catch.
13 Finns will be seen in the Conference Finals. There are three first class centres, a first class pack and all kinds of goodies. Incredible condition! The difference from the western neighbor is considerable. There are only three Swedes: Vegas’ William Carlson, Florida’s Gustav Forsling and Carolina’s Jesper Faust. This spring went to Finland.
There is an atmosphere around Toronto right now that something big has to happen – and it will happen. Club President Brendan Shanahan, GM Kyle Dubas, Head Coach Sheldon Keefe or the core four Matthews, Marner, Tavares, Nylander. The same Pappu will hardly come back in the autumn. There are no easy solutions here.
Both series, Carolina–Florida and Vegas–Dallas, were initially evenly matched. Of the four remaining teams, virtually all have an equal chance at the Stanley Cup, and for each of them, it will be equally surprising and overwhelming at the same time. Enough playoffs.
