Three “W” Teams “W”on on Tuesday To Either Take Or Maintain “Quarters” Leads

May 3, 2018

Yesterday I cited the upset, quarterfinal series opening game wins by both “C” teams, the “C”eltics and “C”avaliers. Each team tries for another upset win tonight, first at 6 P.M. (you think television does not dictate) Cleveland at Toronto followed by Philadelphia at Boston.

On Tuesday three “W” teams posted “w”ins that either kept or gave them “quarters” leads.

The defending champion “W”arriors no covered the New Orleans Pelicans to take a (2-0) series lead.

Meanwhile for the first time in the three consecutive years of Penguins/Capitals NHL “quarters” clashes, the “W”ashington Capitals lead the series after three games. They have a (2-1) series advantage.

Speaking of three, has any team sans home advantage beaten another in 3 playoff series in three consecutive years, which would be the case if the Penguins come back and beat “W”ashington?!

The other “W” team “w”in on Tuesday was posted by the Winnipeg Jets, who overcame a (3-0) deficit vs top ranked Nashville (Predators). They lead the series two games to one.

“W’innipeg is the only NHL team that has not lost at home (4-0) in these ‘offs.

They finished second to the Predators in overall points and are bidding to become the first Winnipeg Jets team, in either incarnation (the original Winnipeg Jets, the greatest of WHA teams led by Bobby Hull, are now the Arizona Coyotes) to win as many as 2 NHL playoffs series in one year.

Tonight again, Pittsburgh hosts “W’ashington while “W”innipeg hosts Nashville.


Last week on Wednesday, the cities of Boston and Toronto faced each other in both hockey and baseball.

Boston teams won both, the exponentially more important first round deciding game in Boston and an early season baseball game in Toronto.

On Tuesday past, Washington won both game 3/Qtrs vs the no matter this series result, great Pittsburgh Penguins and an early season baseball tilt vs the Pittsburgh Pirates.
