All the hockey fans out there know that the arrival of April means one thing; the end of the regular season is upon us, and it’s time for the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs to begin! Learn all about the final matchups and how to tune in, and never miss a moment of the action with the Xfinity X1 Sports App.
2019 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs: the fast facts
As the regular season winds down, fans begin looking ahead to the playoff games. From there, teams will continue to advance through the playoffs until two teams duke it out in the ultimate battle for the coveted Stanley Cup. So, who will be declared champions this season? You’ll have to watch to find out, but we have some ideas about who could ultimately advance toward taking it all.
Over in the Eastern Conference, for example, the Tampa Bay Lightning have been on a historic run, having won 59 games already this season. If they win at least four of their next five games, they’re on-pace to set a winning record – 63 wins in the regular season. This winning streak would be a historic moment for the Tampa team, and fans are on the edge of their seats as the regular season winds down and playoffs begin.
Another team that’s been shaking up the Eastern Conference’s status quo is the Carolina Hurricanes, having just come off their best February in the team’s history (and, of course, celebrating accordingly). Fans are expecting a lot more celebrating and, as some would say, “showboating” during the playoffs, which you don’t want to miss.
Finally, the Western Conference has been abuzz with the reigning champions Vegas Golden Knights and the San Jose Sharks both dealing out a good share of regular season wins.
