Last night the Colorado Avalanche clinched the President’s Trophy and the West Division with their 5-1 win over the Kings. All the playoff matchups are set for the NHL’s first round as the puck drops on the road to the Stanley Cup tomorrow!
Jets vs. Maple Leafs (8:00)
Both of these playoff teams in the North close out their regular season tonight as they await their first round series to start next week with the Leafs playing Montreal and the Jets playing Edmonton. These two teams have quite different lead ups to the playoffs. Toronto’s won 7 of their last 9 games and the Jets have lost 9 of their last 11. On the season the Leafs are 6-3 against Winnipeg. Without either of these teams having anything to play for and likely resting most of their impactful players, this could be a pretty shitty game. I’d lean the Leafs win it.
