Hello NHL fans!
The season is about half way over and it is getting exciting. The current top team in the league is the Tampa Bay Lightning led by top scorer Nikita Kucherov and top assist man Steven Stamkos. In 2nd place by just one point are the surprising Vegas Golden Knights. The Golden Knights are a brand new expansion team that just began playing this very season. It is incredible for such a new team to be having such great success.
Now that the All Star Game has been played and teams are back in action it will be a mad scramble to see who makes the playoffs to give themselves a chance to win the illustrious Stanley Cup. Regular season records do affect seeding but year after year the NHL playoffs have shown us that any team that makes it into the playoffs, no matter what seed they are, can go all the way. Just last year the Nashville Predators made it to the Finals as the lowest ranked team in all the playoffs.
All the teams will be vying to knock off the two time defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins have not had success like this since the heyday of Mario Lemieux. Teams from across the country like the Los Angeles Kings and the Boston Bruins would love a chance to take the title away from the champs.
