Right now it’s a close race between the Montreal Canadiens, the Calgary Flames, and the Vancouver Canucks. Montreal seems to have the most momentum going into this final stretch of games for the regular season. With that said, Calgary has also been playing well lately, and with Vancouver having so many games in hand, anything can happen. As of right now I think Montreal will probably be able o squeeze in, assuming Vancouver plays terrible and Calgary loses half of their games left. Who do you think has the best chance at that last playoff spot in the North Division?
I feel like both match-ups can be close. Toronto has had trouble in recent years making it out of the first round. The Oilers on the other hand, I can see them struggling against the Jets if Hellebuyck gets hot. Both series should be super fun to watch. I do agree with you though, if I had to make my picks, I’m taking Leafs and Oilers to win their match-ups.
