Nation Playoff Sim – Day Five

The Oilers and Canucks playoffs series has already gone through Games One, Two and Three with the Oilers ahead 2-1. If you would like to check out that series, here is where all the games were broadcast (One, Two, Three) but for now, this article and the two that will follow every day this weekend at 5pm MT will break down the other series for you. If you’re looking for something to watch, we will be back on Monday with Game Four and we will announce the schedule for the rest of the games needed over the weekend too.

Game 2 Nashville/St. Louis final score: 4-1 St. Louis (Series 1-1 Tied)
Game 1 3-2 NSH

The Blues look a team mad with how they responded to Game One pressure from the Preds and come out firing tonight. Up early and never looking back, Last year’s hero Jordan Binnington stops 38 out of 39 shots and the Blues head to Nashville tied in the series.

Game 1 4-1 NYI

Panic time for the @Boston Bruins as they look to be suffering the same fate as the 2019 @Pittsburgh Penguins at the hands of Barry Trotz’ Isles. Not even getting a touch of the puck in OT, @Tuuka Rask has had his troubles this playoff run so far. The Bruins now head to New York with a sweep a real possibility.

Game 2 Tampa Bay/Toronto final score: 5-1 Tampa Bay (Series 2-0 TBL)
Game 1 4-3 OT TBL

Relentless. That’s the word I can use to describe what Tampa is doing to the Leafs in this series. Kucherov had the team rolling in Game One and tonight it was him again, four assists to go along with his hat trick in Game One. Unreal offense and a stellar game from Vasilevskiy.

1st –

TBL – 3:01 Johnson (Point, Kucherov)
TBL – 7:37 Coleman (Point, McDonagh)

2nd –

TBL – 12:20 Killorn (Kucherov, Cirelli)

1. TBL A. Vasilevskiy (33 saves, .970 SV%)

Game 2 Vegas/Calgary final score: 3-2 Calgary (Series 2-0 CGY)
Game 1 4-0 CGY

A couple of goals from two unusual suspects (@Ryan Reaves and @Milan Lucic) and the @Calgary Flames have taken both games in Vegas on the back of two great performances *spits* from @David Rittich.

1st –

No Goals

2nd –

CGY – 2:25 Hanifin (Dube, Ryan)
VGK – 4:22 Reaves (Quinney, Nosek)

3rd-

CGY – 2:16 Lindholm (Monahan, Gaudreau)
CGY – 9:05 Lucic (Mangiapane)

1. CGY D. Rittich (27 saves, .931 SV%)
Day 2

Game 2 Washington/Carolina final score: 6-2 Washington (Series 1-1 tied)
Game 1 3-2 CAR

The Hurricanes have awoken the beast that is the Cap offence, it would seem. The Capitals blew this one wide open early and then even with a slight push back from the Canes, never really looked back.

1st –

WSH – 9:47 Hagelin (Jensen)
WSH 10:06 Kuznetsov (Carlson, Wilson)

2nd –

CAR – 1:28 Svechnikov (Aho, Teravainen)
WSH – 7:20 Jensen (Eller)

3rd-

WSH – 5:36 Kempny (Hathaway, Carlson)
CAR – 12:35 Williams (Staal, Foegele)
WSH – 18:18 Vrana (Oshie, Backstrom)
WSH – 19:03 Dillon (Hathaway, Orlov)

Three Fists-

3. WSH G. Hathaway (2A)
2. WSH B. Holtby (29 saves, .935 SV%)
1. WSH N. Jensen (1G, 1A)
