Are you excited for the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs?
With injuries to Steven Stamkos and Anton Stralman, the Tampa Bay Lightning will have a tough time against the Detroit Red Wings. The youth of Andreas Anthanasiou and Dylan Larkin, combined with the veterans of Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk will really test the Lightning. Tampa Bay’s Jonatahn Drouin will have to step up in wake of Stamkos’ injury, and so will Tyler Johnson and Nikita Kucherov.
The New York Rangers are without Ryan McDonagh in their first game, and Henrik Lundqvist will be required to continue to stand on top of his head. Sidney Crosby, Phil Kessel, and Kris Letang will have to be solid in front of Jeff Zatkoff with their studs of goaltenders Matt Murray and Marc-Andre Fleury.
How good will the Blackhawks be without Duncan Keith? Can the Blues finally eliminate Chicago from the playoffs after so many recent tries.
Who do you think will win the Stanley Cup?
