NHL Season Shaping Up To Be Exciting

Posted on January 13, 2014 by


“The eight seeds for the Stanley Cup for the west will be the Sharks, Blackhawks, Blues, Canucks, Avalanche, Kings, Wild, and the Coyotes,” junior Frankie Talarico said.

As of right now, the San Jose Sharks and the Colorado Avalanche are the only undefeated teams left in the Western Conference. Both teams sit at 6-0. It is a long season, but it would not be wrong to say that these would be top seeds in the playoffs.

“The Rangers are letting me down this year.  It is disappointing,” junior Rocco Russo said.

The Rangers right now are sitting at 1-4, and they sit at 7 out of 8 teams in the Metropolitan Division. They have 9 goals scored and have allowed 25 goals. Henrik Lundqvist , the star goalie for the Rangers, has not been playing up to par like he usually does.

“The Pittsburgh Penguins will win the Stanley cup,” junior Austin Young said.

The Penguins are sitting at 5-1 right now and are at the top of the Metropolitan Division. They have scored 23 goals and allowed 15 goals to be scored on them. They are led by Sidney Crosby with 12 points.

“The Flyers are having a terrible season so far, being 1-7 and ranked last,” junior Nate Mayer said.

Indeed, the Flyers were off to an awful start this year. They fired their coach in the first three games and have assigned Craig Berube as the interim head coach. As of late, though, the Flyers have been rolling, with a record of 8-10-1. The Pittsburgh Penguins are 13-8 with a win streak of 1. The Detroit Red Wings are sitting at 9-6-7 with a losing streak of 7.

“The Flyers are having a turnaround season,” Talarico said.

The Flyers since then are now 22-17-4. In their last ten games, they are 8-2 and are currently second behind the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Metropolitan Conference.
