Carolina v Florida

Sergei Bobrovsky is playing his best hockey since the 2019 roster was assembled in Columbus, the second Veznia win and Tampa Bay upset. Anthony Duclair is a main contributor, and Zac Dalpe is getting games as former Blue Jackets.

Carter Verhaehge is breaking his own records by scoring more goals in Florida playoff
History. Barkov and Ekblad are superstars. Tkachuk is the X factor.

Carolina has everything, from the complete team depth to chemistry and the grit to get through to their first Cup in 17 years. Terrivanen is back. Aho is the X factor.

Coach v player he coached in Maurice and Brind’Amour.

Hurricanes in 7.

Dallas v Vegas

The 2020 Western Conference Finals rematch is back on screens with former Vegas coach Peter DeBoer and player Evgenii Dadanov on the opposite side in Texas Green.

Jack Eichel in his first playoff run is already three rounds deep. Jonathan Quick has been riding the pine to Adin Hill and Laurent Brossoit. Jonathan Marchessault crushed the Oilers. William Karlsson is a secondary piece. Keegan Kolesar is the grit. Alex Piterangelo is the X factor.

Jason Robertson did not score against Seattle. Joe Paveski had a four goal game. Jake Otteinger was human. Miro Heskianen got injured and still played over 28 minutes a night. He is the X factor.

Dallas has the horse and right mix.

Stars in 6.
