Panthers from Florida
Florida sensationally knocked out the winner of the President’s Cup last “regular season” in the first round of the playoffs. It took them seven games to win the Panthers (4:3). Six of them were successful – THIS. This trend continued in the first game against Toronto. The guests won 4:2.
Maple leaves from Toronto
Toronto defeated Tampa in the first round, and like Florida, Maple Leaves needed all seven games of the series (4-3). Six of them ended in tuberculosis. Toronto is fine on the attack. In defense, the situation does not look so optimistic.
Both opponents are effective in attack and less effective in defensive actions. Besides, the game of the goalkeepers of both clubs does not look very credible. In Toronto, Ilya Samsonov works on the last frontier. Whose cup experience and playoff results cannot be called outstanding. At the gates of the Panthers, Sergey Bobrovsky, to whose game questions appeared throughout the season. As expected, the first match of the second round ended in TO. Florida won away (4-2) We expect to continue to see productive hockey in this confrontation.
