We are officially past the halfway point of the National Hockey League season and the race to the finish has begun!
After last night's games, we woke up to a three-way tie this morning in the official iPlayHockey hockey pool. Black Donnelly, Mike's Maulers, and Elmo's Bambinos are all sitting atop the standings with an impressive 892 points.
Black Donnelly's chances look promising down the stretch with the impressive seasons of Connor McDavid and Brent Burns not showing any signs of slowing down. With that being said, we can't rule out Mike's Maulers with Erik Karlsson and Auston Matthews set to explode at any time. Or Elmo's Bambinos with how impressive Joe Pavelski and Brad Marchand are playing right now. And this is just the top three; plenty of other teams are well in contention for the top spot.
The prizes this year are a $250 gift card for the NHL shop for first place (plus bragging rights), a NHL GameCentre Live subscription for next year for second place, and an iPlayHockey prize pack for third place. Not too shabby!
Keep an eye on those standings coming down the home stretch as it promises to be a photo finish!
