Ok folks, the first weekend of the NHL is over with. Here are five over reactions form the opening weekend of the season.
#5 Storm Surge The Cup
Have you seen the Carolina Hurricanes? Wholly shit they beat Tampa in overtime. They are doing that silly celebrations thing again. Jake Gardner snipeed in OT, the Jaccob Slavin snipped in OT. Carolina is gonna be in OT in game seven of The Cup Final and Justin Williams is going to repel from the rafters and score the OT winner. Then a literal hurricane will blow the roof off the building.
#4 Who’s Your Papi
Ausitn Matthew will break Wayne Gretzky goals in a single season record. But Toronto will miss the playoffs.
#San Jose is dead in the water
San Jose has played three games. Only scored three goals, and show no sign of turning things around. If they split the first ten games of the season they will need to consider that a win. It’s gonna be rough.
#2 The Colorado Avalanche’s Future is now!
Umm this one may not even be an over reaction. They have scored nine goals in two games and only given up five. Cale Makar is making everyone forget Tyson Barrei ever existed. Mikko Rantanen is proving he is worth the paycheck. Assign as Grubauer doesn’t get hurt who the hell knows where the ceiling is for this team.
#1 Vegas is going to win the cup.
This was the prediction for a lot of people to start the season. Then the season started and it seems like we don’t even need to finish the season. They scored nine goals against San Jose and only let up two. They play Boston tonight in Boston, if they stomp Boston just give them the damn cup.
