Conference Finals almost set

Not sure how many of you are hockey fans or if you like the NHL but I am a big fan. This years playoffs have been very exciting and I have been watching most games.

I am a Chicago Blackhawks fan but since they didn't even make the playoffs for the first time in 11 seasons I had to pick another team to cheer on. I went with the Vegas Golden Knights and so far the are still in it. I picked the Tampa Bay Lightning to be in the Stanley Cup finals also and they are still in it. I like picking each team for each round.

So far I have picked fairly well and hopefully I can keep that up. So far I have been 8 for 11. That is not to bad for picking the winners I think. Of the remaining games I am hoping the Winnipeg Jets beat the Nashville Predators, then the winner of that series will play the Vegas Golden Knights, who I hope will win. Then the Tampa Bay Lighting are playing against the Washington Capitals and I am hoping the Lightning win.

We wont know till about two weeks from now. The Series are the best of seven and I think the Conference Finals don't start till either Friday or Saturday.

I have watched some hockey and it is a very hard sport to play I bet. For certain. I think you might like this link to look at. It is an event calendar for the 2018 hockey season from the national hockey league. https://www.nhl.com/community/hockey-is-for-everyone/calendar

I'm not a fan of team sports, as teams are composed of random and ever-changing memberships. What's the point? However, I once watched a "Superbowl" and enjoyed it. But just for the game. Not for the team.

Yes, I would guess it would be hard :). I do not play but I love watching.

I guess working as a team to get to a goal is the point. Sports are not for everyone but I really enjoy watching it.
