The Montreal Canadiens are the first division winners of this year’s NHL playoff game and are therefore in the semi-finals. The record champions defeated the Winnipeg Jets 3:2 after extra time on Monday and eliminated the Jets with a “sweep” (4:0 in best of seven series).
Montreal has won the entire Canadian Northern Division and continues to fight to end 28 years of negative events for the ice hockey motherland. Since the Canadians’ 24th victory in 1993, no Canadian team has won the Stanley Cup. At that time, the Canadians did not reach the final either. “In 1993 it was a great team. But every year is different and we don’t think about it internally. We focus on the moment. We can write our own story. And that’s what we want to do,” said coach Dominique Ducharme.
In the semi-finals he goes against the Colorado Avalanche or the Vegas Golden Knights. In the Western Division Final, the score was 2-2. On Monday, Tyler Toffoli decided the match in favor of Montreal with a goal in the second minute of extra time.
In the Eastern Conference Final, the New Yorkers only lost one win. The Islanders won 5-4 at the Boston Bruins despite hitting shots on target at a ratio of 19:44 and leading the set 3-2. The guests from New York capitalized on their first three games outnumbered to score and can count on goalkeeper Semjon Varlamo with 40 saves.
