All the North Division teams are from Canada in this year’s NHL. Because of the traveling restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic in Canada and the US, North Division was formed only with Canadians.
Watch the NHL Finals live stream in July to see if any Canadian team wins the Stanley Cup. But before that, let’s have a brief overview of the North Division.
NHL Finals Live Stream: North Division
It’s all Canadian games in the North Division. The regular season and the first two rounds of the play-off are taking place in Canada. After that, the winning team will have to travel as they need to face teams from other American divisions.
A total of seven teams started the regular season of the Ice Hockey League. The top four teams made it to the play-off. From here, only one team will reach the semi-finals. To know if one of them makes it to the finals, watch the NHL Finals live stream.
The four teams participating in the play-off from the North Division are:
- Toronto Maple Leafs (North Division Champion) – 77 points
- Edmonton Oilers – 72 points
- Winnipeg Jets – 63 points
- Montreal Canadiens – 59 points
Toronto had an excellent regular season, while Montreal struggled to reach the play-off. Edmonton and Winnipeg are having an average season. In the play-off, Toronto Maple Leafs will compete against the Montreal Canadiens. On the other hand, the Edmonton Jets will face the Montreal Canadiens. After that, winners of these two games will fight against each other for a spot at the semi-finals.
Let’s analyze who has the most chance of winning from the North Division.
Toronto Maple Leafs
Well, Toronto Maple Leafs haven’t made it to the finals for a long time. At the beginning of the regular season, it seemed that they might do it this year. They finished the regular season top of the North Division. But failed to defeat the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of the play-off.
It’s not uncommon this season that teams that did well in the regular season end up losing in the play-off. The same thing happened with the Edmonton Oilers. They had a good regular season. Now, they have lost four consecutive in the play-off. So, they’re eliminated from the NHL play-off with zero wins.
Winnipeg Jets had shown an amazing sports performance in the first round of the play-off. They have squashed the Edmonton Oilers and advanced to the second round. Though our experts don’t believe they will reach the finals still, ice hockey can be very unpredictable sometimes. So, don’t forget to watch the NHL Finals live stream in July.
Montreal hasn’t won the Stanley Cup Finals for quite some time now. But they hold the record of winning the most Stanley Cups (24times). In this season, Montreal Canadiens struggled to reach the play-off. But in the play-off, they’re doing great and can also reach the finals.
It’s been a long time since the Canadians held the Stanley Cup high. We hope this season they finally finish the drought. Watch the NHL Finals live stream to find out if they can do it this season.
