SEVENTH HEAVEN OR HELL? +Jackets Could Sweep Lightning AGAIN. [email protected]

April 23, 2019, 12:28 PM ET [1 Comments]
I will be getting to tonight's Game 7s...but first...something kinda nuts.

The Cleveland Monsters, the Blue Jackets AHL Team, has a chance tonight to sweep the Syracuse Crunch, the Lightning's AHL Team!

As we all know the Jackets swept the Lightning despite finishing 30 points behind them in the standings.. meanwhile, should the Monsters win tonight they would have swept the Crunch despite finishing 18 points behind Syracuse...

Also weird...The Cleveland Monsters, like their NHL Jackets managed to make the playoffs barely clinching the last game of the season.

Onto the Main Event...

Two Game 7's Tonight! Does it get any better for a Tuesday??

On Toronto vs Boston

This feels very much like Deja-Vous for Leaf's Fans but this series has felt very different from the start. This is not the 2018 Leafs and it sure isn't the team that fell in 2013 in Game 7. Both times the Leafs lost despite leading. This series hasn't felt like 2013 or 2018 at all.

In 2013 the Bruins jumped out to a 3-1 series lead and the Leafs battled back to tie the series, but only had score 13 goals in the first 6 games..

In 2018 AGAIN the Bruins jumped out to a 3-1 series lead and again the Leafs tied the series at 3 before falling in 7.

In neither 2013 or 2018 were the Leafs EVER leading the series...

2019 has seen the Leafs never trailing in the series...The Bruins have been the team chasing the Leafs around figuratively and literally...

I picked the Leafs to win this series, but I didn't give the Bruins the credit they deserved for being tough to eliminate... This is a very even series, it could go either way...but I still see Toronto moving forward to face Columbus.

More later on San Jose and Vegas....
