1 - Tampa Bay Lightning (117 points)
2 - Boston Bruins (113 points)
3 - Toronto Maple Leafs (109 points)
4 - Florida Panthers (94 points)
5 - Buffalo Sabres (81 points)

5 - San Jose Sharks (88 points)
6 - Calgary Flames (88 points)
7 - Los Angeles Kings (83 points)
8 - Vancouver Canucks (67 points)
Everyone (or at least almost everyone) who picks who makes the playoffs will have a crazy one in there. For me, i have Tampa Bay, Boston, Toronto, Florida, Washington, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Philly, Nashville, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Anaheim, Dallas, Colorado, and Vegas. All those seem like normal picks. That's 15 teams. The other one is my crazy one, the Arizona Coyotes. I've said it the last few years, i'm gonna say it again. I have to be right one of these times.
Tampa Bay in 6
Toronto in 7
Washington in 5
Pittsburgh in 6
Nashville in 5
Winnipeg in 4
Anaheim in 6
Edmonton in 6
1st round recap: No huge surprises in round 1. The Leafs finally beat Boston, and after Vegas loses in the final, the Oilers somehow are just too much for the Golden Knights, and they don't make it far again next year, while the Oilers win a series. Arizona surprises everyone by making the playoffs, and are able to win a game, but can't beat Nashville in the series. The Jackets once again lose in the 1st round. Winnipeg sweeps Dallas, i think this one will end sooner than expected. We see those series every year. Anaheim has too much depth and too good of a defence and goalie for the Avalanche to beat them. The Bolts move on to round 2 again. Unlike Vegas, Washington makes it to round 2 after winning the cup this year.
Tampa Bay in 7
Washington in 5
Winnipeg in 7
Edmonton in 7
2nd round recap: Caps Penguins series ends earlier than expected. Kinda like it did this year, and kinda like a few series have this year. Tampa and Toronto should be a great series if it happens, but the Bolts i think will be too much for the Leafs and will get it done in 7. The Ducks will be good but will not get past the Oilers, and the Oilers surprisingly make it to the final. Jets Preds was the hardest one for me to pick the winner of, but i think the Jets will get past the Preds for the 2nd straight year. They just have too good of a team.
Washington in 7
Winnipeg in 6
3rd round recap: The Caps and the Lightning was a really tricky one to pick. But in the end, after watching what they did this year, i just feel like the Capitals are gonna be able to get past the Lightning again, in 7 games. The western series should be a good one, but in the end i think the Jets will get it done in Edmonton in game 6. Such a good team.
Stanley Cup Final Preview: First, i'll mention that even though i have them tied in points, Winnipeg has one of the tiebreakers giving them home ice advantage coming into the series. Either we will see a Canadian team win the cup, or a team win the cup for the 2nd straight season. If Washington wins, then Ovechkin would have to go right up there with Crosby. He already is pretty close, but i wouldn't put him QUITE in the Crosby category yet, and Sid is still the best player in the league right now.
Game 1 - The Jets take game 1 of the final by a score of 3-2.
Game 2 - The Caps try their best and come so close, but Winnipeg goes up 2-0 in the series with a 4-2 win (empty netter at the end in the final seconds).
Game 3 - The Caps don't let it end yet, winning the game 4-1 (with an empty netter).
Game 4 - The game goes to overtime, tied at 3, but the Caps score first tying the series at 2.
Game 5 - The Jets have gone back home, and are down by a goal (2-1 the score at the time) coming into the 3rd, but tie the game at 2, and win 3-2 in overtime.
Game 6 - The game switches up a bit when it comes to who has the lead. In the end, the Caps are not able to tie the game late when down 5-4, and the Jets win their first ever Stanley cup.
Stanley Cup Final Recap: Good series, but i think Canada will finally win the cup. Not just predicting the Jets to win cause they're Canadian. They're the reason i think the cup is returning to Canada. Laine, Scheifele, Wheeler Connor, Ehlers, Little/Stastny if he signs ... that's a scary good top 6. And then they have a good defence, and a great goaltender. I think the Winnipeg Jets will win the 2019 Stanley cup.
