Previewing the NHL's Eastern Division

JL Matthews

Can Pittsburgh and Washington both make the playoffs?

It wouldn't be a shock to see the eventual Stanley Cup winner come out of the Eastern Division. There's plenty of depth--at least at the very top. Made up of 6 Metro teams along with Boston and Buffalo, there's loads of bad blood to go around as well. Securing a playoff birth (i.e. a top 4 finish) won't be easy.

Projected Finish:

  1. Boston (P)
  2. Washington (P)
  3. Pittsburgh (P)
  4. Islanders (P)
  5. Rangers
  6. Philadelphia
  7. Buffalo
  8. New Jersey
