Some Headlines from the NHL as the 2017 Playoffs Continue

The National Hockey League is in the middle of their postseason, and it’s been a really fun postseason thus far. Let’s take a look at some of the best headlines in the National Hockey League:

Road Teams win in the West

The second round of the National Hockey League playoffs got going, and the road teams were successful in Game 1. The Nashville Predators held a 3-1 lead, only to see St. Louis storm back to tie the game. The Predators scored a late game and won Game 1 on the road. Then, later, the Edmonton Oilers did the same thing. The Oilers led 3-1, gave up two quick goals and saw the game tied. Edmonton scored the final two goals to win on the road in Anaheim. It was the first postseason loss for the Ducks.

Cassidy Returning for Boston

The Boston Bruins reached the postseason, and that apparently was enough for their interim head coach Bruce Cassidy to get the interim label removed. Cassidy will return as the head coach in 2017 – 2018. Cassidy took over for Claude Julien, who was the winningest coach in the history of the franchise. Cassidy saw some solid success, as they went 18-8-1 to finish up the regular season.

Fiala missing remainder of postseason

Kevin Fiala will miss the rest of the postseason, as he broke his left leg in the Game 1 win over the St. Louis Blues. Fiala was ran into the boards in a harmless play by Robert Bortuzzo of the Blues. The game was delayed for 17 minutes to get Fiala off the ice, and another ambulance to arrive at the scene. Fiala is just 20 years old, and was the 11th pick in the 2014 draft by the Predators. He scored two goals in the series sweep over the Blackhawks.
