From October 4 to 7 April in the United States will host the next regular championship of the strongest hockey League in the world – the NHL.
The main news of the off-season in the American hockey was the appearance in the NHL’s 31st team – the “Vegas Golden knights” became part of the Pacific division and home games will be hold in Las Vegas on 17-strong “T-mobile Arena.”
Another important news is the fact that in February 2018 NHL players can’t help their national teams at the Olympic games in Pyeongchang. The strongest players of the world for the first time since 1994, will not play at the Olympics.
The status of the current holder of the Stanley Cup will protect the “Pittsburgh”. Bookmakers at the start of the season I think the team of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin leading contender for a third straight win, but experts from a reputable resource “TSN” inclined to think that in the final of the playoffs NHL
“Tampa Bay” beat “Edmonton”.
The main stimuli to the Pittsburgh penguins in the East promise to be “Washington”, “Tampa Bay”, “Toronto” and “Montreal”. In the list of favorites the Eastern conference includes Chicago, Edmonton, Anaheim, Dallas and last year’s finalist of the Cup Stanley “Nashville”.
In the playoffs traditionally fall on the top eight teams from each conference. The all-star game 2018 will be held in Tampa (Florida).
