After a brief flirtation with the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Taylor Hall is back on the golf course as the New Jersey Devils have been eliminated from the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Five games is all it took for the Tampa Bay Lightning to defeat the Devils, who were back in the dance just one year after finishing dead last in the Eastern Conference. The team’s improvement is remarkable, to say the least; the Devils finished the season 10-4-2 to clinch the final playoff spot in the conference, and with Tampa Bay limping into the postseason with a 5-4-1 tally over their final ten games, New Jersey looked primed to upset the powerhouse Lightning.
The offence wasn’t about to slow down on day six of the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Leafs stayed alive to breathe some life back into their playoff hopes; the Devils did the same scoring three unanswered goals, Colorado got some revenge on Nashville lighting them up for five goals, and the Sharks dominated the Ducks for a 3-0 stranglehold on the series.
