The NHL playoffs are here and they are going to be exciting to watch. For the first time in years all the original six teams have made the playoffs. The Red Wings vs. the Ducks, Blackhawks vs. the Wild, Rangers vs. Capitals; Maple Leafs vs. Bruins and the Canadiens vs. the Senators.

He is not a bad player, but he does not seem to be as good, or as impacting as he was when he first started in the NHL.

I have noticed that people pick teams before the playoffs start and give them their allegiance for the time being, luckily for me ,my favorite team the Cincinnati Bengals have made it to the post season again and for now I do not need to hop on any bandwagon. Another fun part of the NFL playoffs is the super bowl which means time to gather some friends a lot of food and drinks and enjoy the game no matter who is playing, although it would be even better if a team we actually cheer for makes it. This year the AFC Continue reading
