Puck Talk Live Podcast: Episode 54 – East Division Predictions
LISTEN TO PODCAST HERE!
On episode 54, and the last episode of the division previews, the boys list their East Division predictions. While the New Jersey Devils have a bright future, the hosts agree they will struggle in such a talented division. In addition, Corey Crawford taking a leave of absence will hurt the Devils. The Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers are two teams that have the talent to possibly make the playoffs but are not yet proven and too inexperienced to make a legitimate playoff push.
Spots one through five are extremely competitive, with just about any team able to steal a spot if they are on a winning streak. The two teams that could vastly change their positions within the division are the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Islanders. Both of these teams have a strong offence and fantastic coaching. However, it is likely only one of them will make it into the playoffs. Even without centerman Mathew Barzal, the Islanders are still a very strong team and could make some noise heading into the end of the season. The Penguins, while old, still have star players to push them to wins. Who ends up in the top four? Listen to find out!
Who are Logan, Raffi, and Noah? Put simply, they are three high school friends who bonded over their strong love for hockey, and decided to share their thoughts with the world via podcast. All three are die-hard Blackhawks fans, but Logan also cheers for the Hurricanes and Raffi also roots for the Bruins.
