When the NHL’s NHLPA decides to break up, the NHL could still find its way to the playoffs
By KEVIN MELKMAN In an era when the NHL has lost two of its three regular-season games, the league has managed to retain a significant amount of its strength.
The NHL is in danger of losing the Stanley Cup to the Boston Bruins, which has been the sport’s main contender for the past decade.
The Boston Bruins are the only team that has won the Stanley Cups since 2000.
But while the Bruins have won five straight regular-seasons, the most recent is a long-shot.
That would mean the Bruins would be the only other team in the NHL to win the Stanley Championship.
The only team in history to win it all twice is the New York Rangers, who won it in 2011 and again in 2013.
The other two franchises that have won the Cup in consecutive seasons are the Philadelphia Flyers and the New Jersey Devils, who have played in four of the past five seasons.
The two teams play each other in the final, and both have the talent to win.
But the Penguins and Rangers both play in a division that has the potential to be the Stanley Final, and each could win the Cup.
The Penguins, who play the Tampa Bay Lightning, have the best chance at winning the Stanley.
They have the most assets in the division, with four players who can win the cup and a deep prospect pool that includes Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Evander Kane and Artemi Panarin.
The Rangers are a little better, but they are playing against a team that could be the best in the Eastern Conference.
The Penguins, on the other hand, have to rely on a strong prospect pool, but a strong team.
The Bruins are one of the strongest teams in the league, with a Stanley Cup-winning team from 2007-11 and two other championships in recent years.
The Bruins are currently the defending champions and have won four straight games.
The Rangers also have a Stanley Championship team from 2004-05 and two previous championships.
If the Bruins and Penguins split, the divisional playoffs would be held in April and the Cup would be played in May.
The Cup would also play in the Atlantic Division for the first time.
If both teams split, it would be March for the second round, which would mean either the Blackhawks or Penguins could finish first in the conference and then win the Presidents’ Trophy.
If the Rangers finish third, the conference champion would be Chicago, which could have the chance to win its first Cup since 2009.
If Boston wins the Stanley, it could be one of four teams to win two straight titles.
If one team was eliminated, the second-round series would go to the third-place team, which usually plays in the East.
If two teams were eliminated, one of those would play in New York, which the Penguins would have to beat.
If either team lost to the other, the other team would play the other division winner, which means it would play at home for the series.
The final game of the season is the Conference Final, which takes place in Detroit, which will be hosting the Stanley Trophy.
The winner of the series would host the Stanley Finals for the right to play in two more rounds of the playoffs.
If a division champion won the Presidents’s Trophy, the champion of the conference finals would host.
The Blackhawks are the defending Stanley Cup champions, but it would likely be the Bruins who get the chance at the Cup, which they have had since 2007.
If one team wins the Presidents Trophy, there would be two games for the conference final and the Stanley final.
If both teams win the league championship, there could be a playoff series in the Western Conference for the Stanley championship.
If Boston and the Rangers split, both teams would play each others in the Conference Finals.
Boston would host and would have the right of first refusal to host the final.
It would also have the advantage of playing in the best-of-five series.
If either team wins, the final would be decided in New Jersey, where both teams have won two straight championships.
The Flyers would host if they win the conference championship, and if both teams are in the same division, the Stanley semifinals would be hosted in Philadelphia.
The Islanders, who finished last in the Metropolitan Division, are in a similar situation to Boston.
Both teams play in Philadelphia and play each another in the playoffs if the two teams are tied.
The Isles would host, while the Islanders would play one of two games to determine the conference title.
If a tie is reached, the Islanders play in Brooklyn, while Brooklyn would host in Brooklyn.
If two teams won the conference titles, both would play host to the conference semifinals.
Boston hosts the first two games of the tournament in New England, while Philadelphia hosts two games in New Orleans.
If there is a tie in the standings, the two playoff series would be split between the Atlantic and Western Conference.
If any of the top four teams from the conference are
