NHL “C” Team First Round Playoff(s) Notes

August 20, 2020

All eight NHL first round series, four of which ended in 5 games, involved teams with the letter “C” starting either their city or team nickname.

Seven (one had to in the “C”olorado Avalanche’s series win vs the Phoenix “C”oyotes) have manifested in the “C” team either having already lost the series or trailing in it.

Las Vegas 5’d “C”hicago, Boston ditto vs “C”arolina and Tampa Bay the same vs “C”olumbus.  Meanwhile, the Islanders lead the ’18 champion “C”apitals 3 games to 1.

In series currently standing at (3-2), the Flyers lead the “C”anadiens, who stayed alive with a game 5 win and Dallas is ahead of “C”algary.

The lone “C” team either leading or beating one that is not, involves the “C”anucks, leading the defending champion Blues. They rallied from a (3-1) deficit in game 5 to do so.

Sadly, Hall of Fame player, Dale Hawerchuk, pictured above, who wore the esteemed “C” as captain of the old Winnipeg Jets, now the Arizona Coyotes, has passed away, far too young at the age of 57.
