S18 - Round Two [WB12]

2021-07-06

Second round VHL playoff

 

Saint Louis Missouri : The Saint Louis Blues are out of the VHL playoff this year, they lost the first round serie 4 games to three games against Minnesota Wild. In the second round Wild will face the San Jose Sharks that improved their roster just prior the deadline so it will be difficult to qualified for the third round playoff. Post-season is showing so far the parity in the VHL.

This season the Minnesota Wild played the San Jose Sharks for 4 games, Wild lost the first game 5-3 in this game Rod Brind'Amour scored 2 goals, Radim Vrbata had 2 assists and Andrei Zyuzin had 2 assists,  In the second match up Wild won 6-4 in this game Rod Brind'Amour had 2 assists, Wild won the third game 3-2 and Sharks won the last games by a score of 6-3

I know season does not mean anything when playoff time come but still in the season these team were even. Lets look at each roster :

Sharks have six 80ov and more, many players with experience and leadership while Wild 6 players with 80ov and more, many good players with so much of experience and leadership but we can not push away what they did this season one of their best season for a long time.

Sharks scorers so far Radim Vrbata with 4 goals 3 assists, Rod Brind'Amour with 3 goals 4 assists and David Backes 1 goal 4 assists. Goalie Scott Clemensen had an average of 2.38 and .939 saving percentage in the first round.

Wild scorers so far Todd Marchant with 5 goals 4 assists, Petr Scheafer with 4 goals 3 assists, David Legwand 2 goals 5 assists and Keith Tkachuk with 2 goals 4 assists. Goalie David Aebischer had an average of 2.86 and .923 saving percentage in the first round.

I can not say who will win this playoff round, these two team are pretty well even, advantage in the net for the Sharks So I say it will be 7 game serie.
