Postseason games are finally upon us and, for many fans, they mean more than ever.
As we’ve noted throughout the post-season, there is no such thing as too much hockey.
While the regular season is all but over, the postseason is only the beginning.
With the season on the horizon, here are some things to watch this season.
The National Hockey League has a great run in the postseason, and the NHL playoffs are no exception.
The regular season will have 11 games in nine days and the playoffs will have 15 games in six days.
These will be played on Thursday nights and Thursday evenings, with Thursday night games on Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2 and Fox Sports 3.
The games will be held in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Montreal, Buffalo and Philadelphia.
For the second year in a row, the Philadelphia Flyers and Toronto Maple Leafs will square off in the first round of the playoffs.
This will be the third and final meeting between these two teams.
The teams met in the second round last year, which was the Flyers first-round loss to the Maple Leafs.
The Flyers had an off night in Game 1, allowing three goals on 16 shots in the third period.
The Leafs responded in the fourth with a goal in the opening minutes, but the Flyers would tie it up in the final seconds of regulation.
The game was tied 3-3 when it was eventually called.
The tie went to 3-2 after the goal.
The third period was a bit of a blur with the Flyers taking a 2-1 lead into the fourth period, but Toronto would tie the game with 2:31 remaining.
The goal came from a loose puck that was headed to the net by a teammate.
After the game, Flyers GM Ron Hextall said that the goal had to be called as a goal.
“I don’t think it was a shot from a shot,” Hextally said.
“There’s a lot of things that could have gone wrong, but I don’t see that it was intentional.
He’s a big hockey fan, and I know he’s disappointed with what happened, but that’s not why I made the call.”
The first game of the second-round series between the Flyers and Maple Leafs took place on Thursday, January 5.
The Maple Leafs won the game 3-1.
The second game of that series, between the Toronto Maple Leaf and Ottawa Senators, was also played on Wednesday, January 7.
The Senators had a 6-1 win in Game 2.
The first game was a game between the Maple Leaf Senators and Philadelphia Flyers.
The Ottawa Senators took a 3-0 lead into overtime, but a goal from Sergei Bobrovsky was called back-to-back after he hit a loose rebound from behind the net.
The play was stopped by the referees, but it would be the Senators second power play of the game.
The score was tied at 3-all in the overtime period, so it went to a shootout.
The shootout goal was the game winner for the Maple Leaves.
The team that wins the shootout would be eliminated from the playoffs, with the team that comes out on top advancing.
The winner would face the winner of the previous game.
The third game of a second-to
