The 2021-2022 NHL season starts tonight! Now will fully seated arenas, and a full 82 game season! I'm not sure if I will cover every game this season, and I for sure won't have time to analyze every game in detail. But I'll pick winners for tonight,...

Montreal Canadiens - Tampa Bay Lightning So, the Habs managed to get a win at last. It took both hard work and puck luck, but they did it. But they were outplayed, and now they will be facing the Bolts in Tampa, and they won't have last change anymor...

Tampa Bay Lightning - Montreal Canadiens Is this it? Will the Bolts seal the deal? Or will the Habs avoid the sweep, and live on to fight another day? One thing that speaks for the Habs, is that extra day of rest. They are playing their top 4 d-men r...

Tampa Bay Lightning - Montreal Canadiens So, must-win game for the Habs. Sure, if they lose, the series are not over, but I just don't see the Bolts lose four games in a row. Montreal really need a win tonight. They were close in the last game. They...

Montreal Canadiens - Tampa Bay Lightning So, now we know. Tampa are way, way better than Montreal. Or, at least they were in the first game. I think the Habs played pretty well, but the Bolts were straight amazing. If all games look like game one, it...

Montreal Canadiens - Tampa Bay Lightning So, it's on. The first game in the big final series! How to gauge these teams? They haven't played against eachother all season. The teams they have played haven't crossed either. From the look of how they pla...

New York Islanders - Tampa Bay Lightning That Kucherov injury... I think the series would have been over if it hadn't happened. It's supposedly a game-time decision if he plays tonight, but from the look of it, I lean towards that he doesn't play. An...

Vegas Golden Knights - Montreal Canadiens So, the Habs were amazing again in the last game, and rightfully won. No foul refereeing, and Vegas didn't put up much of a fight. I think the trend is clear. The Canadiens are playing better hockey right now...

Tampa Bay Lightning - New York Islanders So, what happened in Tampa in the last game? IT wasn't at all the close game I expected. The Islanders forgot to not take penalties. Even worse, they forgot to be the Islanders. Usually, entering their zone ta...

Montreal Canadiens - Vegas Golden Knights So, the Habs went out and played their best game in the whole playoffs in game 4. They still lost in overtime, for two reasons. Robin Lehner outperforming Playoff Price in net, and some next level silly refer...
