The National Hockey League (NHL) is heading down its final stretch and the playoffs are near. The NHL playoffs feature 16 total teams with 8 qualifiers from each of league two conferences. The Eastern and Western conferences. Plus two wild cards from each conference. The eventual champion has to play four rounds and win 16 games to be the NHL champions. There still some games left to be played in this season and nothing is cemented right now. Two of the odds on favorites the Tampa Lightnings and Washington Capitals are holding on to their top rank in their respected divisons.
While teams like the Columbus Blue Jackets and Arizona Coyotes are trying to make it to the playoffs. It should be a intresting skating ride. So, fans stay tuned in.
