Big Storylines To Follow In Round 2 Of Stanley Cup

This year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs are shaping up to be the most exciting we have seen in hears.  After three Round 1 series went seven games, things are only going to get tighter as we enter Round 2 tonight.

All the teams that have made it this far are world class teams with world class talent. They do also have their weaknesses though.

On top of all the analyzing we do, we also have to consider the big stories heading into each game and what is at stake for the teams competing. Here are the big storylines to follow in Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

 How Will The Kings Contend With Injury?

A lot of questions how effective the Kings will be in Round 2 of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Have The Bruins Been Slowed Down

The Boston Bruins had an awesome season and made short work of the Detroit Redwings in Round 1.  However, The Montreal Canadiens currently have the series tied and further distractions followed as many Bruins fans began to send out racist tweets geared toward Canadien player P.K. Subban.

Whether or not this distraction, or perhaps just the Candiens themselves, is enough to take the wind out of Boston’s sails remains to be seen.
