Since we’re down to the final moments of postseason life for teams in contention, Puck Daddy solemnly begins a daily countdown to annihilation. The Central Division has a little playoff mystery now, as we wonder who will play the Minnesota Wild in the first round and who will be in the wild card to face either the Chicago Blackhawks or the Pacific winner, given that the Pacific currently has more intense drama than Michelle Williams’s IMDB page. On Monday, you have the Nashville Predators, currently third in the Central, playing at the New York Islanders.
Anton Stralman continues to spark the Lightning with the third score of the night, inching closer to the Blackhawks 4-3 lead in the second period.
Here's tonight's projected lines for the Flames as they take on the Avalanche. FORWARDS Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Micheal Ferland Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik Kris Versteeg - Matt Stajan - Troy Brouwer Lance Bouma - Sam Bennett - Alex Chiasson DEFENCE Mark Giordano - Dougie Hamilton TJ Brodie - Michael Stone Matt Bartkowski - Deryk Engelland GOALTENDER
