Panthers Hit Top Speed

The NHL regular season has wrapped up, for the most part.  As a few teams still are playing regular season games the Stanley Cup Playoffs are set to get going.  The Florida Panthers have hit top speed by winning six straight.  The Pittsburgh Penguins have shocked the hockey world by winning a division and rattling off a 8-2-0 record in the past ten games.  Teams trending the wrong way are the Winnipeg Jets who have won just three of their last ten games.  The Washington Capitals are also having their struggles.  With team violations, the Tom Wilson distraction and goaltending question marks a first round matchup with the Boston Bruins will be no easy task.
