Following the 1927 NHL regular season, the NHL Playoffs were established- at least close enough to what we see in the twenty-first century.
Since playoff hockey is rather intense (back in 2013 the popular hashtag was #becauseitsthecup), friends briefly become enemies. For those who know me, they know I'm a big supporter of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Nashville Predators, and Vegas Golden Knights. With the win over Colorado last night, Vegas will now face the Montreal Canadiens in the semifinals.
My friend texted me today, while I was at work. Since Vegas will be facing Montreal, we have a personal rivalry going. Of course, this is all for the fun of the sport.
Whether Vegas makes it to the Stanley Cup Finals for the second time, they will need to defeat the Montreal Canadiens. Since NHL 22 will probably be released by Electronic Arts/ EA Sports later this year, I believe this year's installment should feature a "Playoff Edition". The last time I remember seeing this was for NHL 13, as players could purchase the collectors edition with a steel book video game case. Since we've had a hard go over the last year an a half, I think it would be a great idea for players to have access to a special version of NHL 22, which adds extra game modes and content.
What do you think?
Thank you and stay safe
