  • 8 reasons why Canadians should keep watching the NHL playoffs
    wouldn t it be awkward and great if those two teams faced each other in the playoffs Yeah Sometimes things work out The Epic Clash could be upon us What do you get when an unstoppable force meets another unstoppable force Aside from that silly fight scene in the third Matrix movie We may find out in two weeks One team broke the points streak record The other nearly set a new mark for a winning streak And everyone has been playing Which Team is Better ever since Fights ensued on message boards but still The Penguins and Blackhawks dominated large swaths of this shortened season and were easily the class of their conferences But since there was no interconference play we didn t get a chance to see what sort of fireworks these two behemoths could make together Instead we might get a matchup in the final that could go down as one of the best in history There s only 7½ hours of new Arrested Development episodes and you ve probably already watched them three times already Don t lie Nobody noticed the Kings Again How do the defending Stanley Cup champions fly under the radar After flying under the radar last season on the way to their title How has the Fast Furious franchise made it to a sixth movie and why can t I stop watching them Yet here we are for the second straight year underestimating the L A Kings Even after what we saw them do last season as the eighth seed absolutely romping to the title while hometown media outlets celebrated by confusing them with the Sacramento Kings of the NBA They re making us feel shame As they should And now we could see our first repeat champ in 15 years Speaking of that One team can cement its place in history Pittsburgh Chicago Boston Los Angeles If you guessed that all four of these cities are in America you are correct Good for you go buy yourself a gold star These cities are also home to the four teams remaining in the Stanley Cup playoffs You may also notice something else they re the last four Stanley Cup champions in order In this brave new world of homogenous salary cap teams we all know that repeat winners are in short supply In fact we ve seen nine different Stanley Cup champs in the last nine years It s getting near impossible to win multiple titles with the same group That all changes in about a month Which means that a title for any of these four teams will go a long way towards their cementing a place among some of the best squads of all time And finally They re all Canadian teams It s repeated every year and bears repeating again Canadians outnumber every nationality on each of the four remaining teams in the Stanley Cup playoffs Through the first two rounds of the playoffs six of the top 10
