NHL Breakdown (Playoffs 4/17)

Happy Tuesday everyone. Last nights article pretty much nailed everything including the dominant performances by Colorado and San Jose. The only one I missed was the Toronto win. I expected Boston to get to 3-0 in the series. Overall, it was a great night. Tonight is day 6 of the playoffs and we have three matchups to breakdown. Let’s take a look at the three matchups tonight:

WAS@ CLS 7:30pm
WPG@ MIN 8:00pm
VGK@ LA 10:30pm

These are some fun matchups tonight and all eyes will be on the Vegas @ Los Angeles game as the Knights will go for the sweep in LA. I am seeing conflicting thoughts so far on this matchup. I personally think the Golden Knights will finish off the sweep tonight. I have the Blue Jackets taking a 3-0 series lead tonight and then I have the Wild tying up the series at 2 against the Jets. Now let’s take a look at my plays of the day:
