Hello, Ladies and gentlemen, I am back with another video here on Sports Casto.
The any 2014 playoff format is approved.
Let's go, Panthers! Come on, ladies and gentlemen.
As you guys know, I am a big Florida Panthers fan in play up.
Well, thank God for NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, who extended the playoffs through 24 teams.
Well, I guess he did that to make it fair, because we know it's gonna be hard to go and continue the regular season because of Kobe 19.
So you can either end the season or you can go straight to the playoffs or maybe go straight to the standing up.
But not just that.
That troubles going straight to the playoffs.
They are expanding the amount of teams that are making the playoffs and my Florida Panthers on making the playoffs.
So all right, playoffs.
Here we come, baby.
But let's talk about this.
Any church one NHL 20 14 playoff format.
So, like it says 24 teams are gonna make the playoffs, 12 from each conference and four teams in each conference are gonna have a by.
We'll get to those teams will get to the playoff matchups in the first round.
Now the NHL, P A and the NHL players approved this playoff format.
Now this player format, that means there's a 95% chance this is gonna happen.
So is gonna happen.
But we do not know the date that this is gonna happen.
We do not know the location again.
This could be a neutral location again.
It's gonna be hard to travel from Canada to float again.
NHL out of any sport has the most teams in Canada out of the major sports.
So and, yes, Canada teams are in the playoffs.
So we're gonna have to figure out how to get, you know, travel from Canada to the U. S.
So there's still allowed to be worked out.
But, hey, at least we get one step closer to any Charles zooming in.
At least I know the Florida Panthers are making the playoffs. Thank God.
So, yeah, now let's get to the actual playoff matchups.
Your here in the first round of the playoffs.
So we're gonna start with the teams that have the by.
So starting with the Eastern Conference, we got the Bruins who have the number one seed, lightning number two seed Capitals three seat and Flyers forces those of the four teams in the Eastern Conference that have a bye on to the Western Conference.
The Blues are the one seed, the Avalanche of the two seed, the Golden Knights of the three seats and the Dallas Stars are the four seed.
So those eight teams that are having a by four from the Eastern Conference for from the Western Conference and this is only from this year, believe me. What? The MLB.
They're gonna have a D.
H this year, and many people think that after this year oh, they're just gonna stay with the D. H.
A Universal D H.
But with NHL, there was no way you could stay with the 2014 playoff format each and every year.
This is a special year, and it's sad that it's special because of this covert 19 running many people's lifes.
So let's get to the Eastern Conference matchups in the first round.
So we're gonna start with the Maple Leafs playing the Blue Jackets.
That may believe so the eight seed blue jackets or the nine C Then we go on to the next match up in the first round.
The Penguins. Which other? Five.
C? You're playing the Canadians, which all the last seat in the 12 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Then we get to my Frana Panthers, and it is a 2016 playoff rematch.
Ladies and gentlemen, I was lucky enough to go to the Stanley Cup playoffs in 2016.
The Panthers lost in the first round, but where they play, the island does.
And who are they playing this year on the playoffs? The New York Island? It's a rematch of the 2016 playoffs, but it's gonna be different. Outcome.
The Florida Pitt was gonna win.
So again, island those with the seven seat playing the Panthers, which are all the tent.
See, I don't care that Donald. Those are better.
Seat Panthers are gonna.
Then we get to the last first round match up with the Eastern Conference, and we have the Carolina Hurricanes, which off the 60 playing the New York Rangers redraw the 11th.
See, let's stick with the Eastern Conference and let's talk about the second round matchups.
All you can call it the first round matchup so if you want to call the first round, you can call it a play in around to see who makes the playoffs.
So the reason they, uh, expanded the playoffs 24 teams is to give a team a chance to make the playoffs, because teams such as the Rangers and the Panthers, they were only one or two games out of the playoffs and there was about 10 games left, and they could have very well made the playoffs.
But instead of going straight to the playoffs and the teams making the playoffs, how it ended, they experience.
It is a 24 teams, but the first round, which I just said it's not technically called the first round.
It is called the playing around.
So the Panthers playing the Islanders, that's in the playing around and not actually the first around.
So if you want to call it the first line or second round anyway, so the went all of the Maple Leafs and Blue Jackets, they're gonna play the four seed, which is the Bruins.
The winner of the Penguins and Canadiens matchup are gonna play the fourth seed, which is the Philadelphia Flyers, but one of the Panthers and the Islanders game is gonna play the second seed, which is a Tampa Bay Lightning.
Imagine if it's a Florida matchup.
Panthers, Both Lightning.
That would be amazing.
And then the Carolina Hurricanes and Rangers window that is going to play the third seat in the Washington Capitals.
Let's get on to the Western Conference first round matchups all.
If you want to make the official tome, it's called the playing around.
So in the Western Conference, the first round matchups go like this.
The Calgary Flames, which was eight seed.
Or playing the Winnipeg Jets, which was a nine seat the Oilers, who are the fifth seed, are playing the Blackhawks.
Which other trustee? The Vancouver cannot seem to the seven seed of playing the Minnesota Wild, which will attempt E international Predators.
I'm not a natural Predators number.
I just have this short a plane.
The Arizona Coyotes, which was the 11 seed.
So those in the Western Conference matchups.
Now let's get to the second round.
Or, if you want to make the official torments card the first mouth but one over the Flames Rose Jets matchup is going to play the number one seed, which is the Blues.
Who? My Panthers beat the Blues The last game they plate throws the last game of the regular season because Kobe 19 stops play the winner of the oil.
Those most blackouts matchup is gonna play the fourth seed, which is the Dallas Stars.
The one up of the Canucks most wild matchup is gonna play the second seed, which is the Avalanche.
I'm not in our brands fan, but I had this trip and then the winner of the Predators verse Coyotes game is gonna play the third seed, which is the Vegas go two nights.
There you have it, Ladies and gentlemen, the Hey Joe expands the playoff format to 24 teams, but the 24 teams are not playing in the first round.
It's technically the playing around to see who actually makes the first around.
It's technically like a wild card, but tons of teams playing in the wild card again.
Eight teams from each conference play in the plane round, and four teams in each conference get it by.
That makes a total of 24 teams in the hole playoff format.
That's drop, but my video but I am just happy to say my Florida Panthers on making the playoffs and, hey, it's gonna be a rematch against the New York Congo's what I mean by a rematch.
The last time the camp was made the playoffs was in 2016 and it was against the Islanders styling.
The Panthers lost in the first round, but this could be a re match.
Hope for the Panthers. One.
Let's go! Pantone's playoffs.
Here we come, baby.
Yes, we're making the playoffs.
Thank God Copa 19 didn't stop the Panthers from making the Klaus.
