NHL Eastern Conference Playoffs

The guys are back with the first of their two-part series. Here, they are breaking down the NHL Eastern Conference Playoffs and what they have in store. Alex and Chace take a look at every team in the East playoffs this year and look at how they think the matchups will go.

First, they take a look at the wild-card seeds and if either of the teams has a chance to knock off the division leaders. They break down each team’s top-six, bottom-six, defence, and goaltending. From there, they decide who they think gets the edge and what that means for the series. After that, the guys look at what the underdog team will have to do right to have an upset. With the playoffs always so close they admit you never know what will happen.

However, then they look at the two divisional series. Alex is confused by what he sees on Twitter. Despite this, he is convinced the series is as close as it can be to 50/50. They once again follow the same pattern looking at each teams strengths and weaknesses and make a prediction. Who do you think will win? Do you agree with Alex and Chace?

Who are Alex and Chace? Alex and Chace are both from Waterloo region in Ontario Canada. Both of them grew up playing hockey and shortly after fell in love with analyzing it. Chace is a noted Leafs and Penguins fan, while Alex is a die-hard Senators fan. You can find Alex’s work at You can find Chace’s work at
