If the NHL exhibition games have shown us anything, it appears the players are all in on Hub life and NHL Playoff hockey and so are we!
For the first time ever, leaders in fantasy sports OfficePools.com, BioSteel and GSL Group have partnered to bring you the NHL Playoff Bracket Challenge Presented by BioSteel. The excitement is high as the National Hockey League (NHL) Playoffs are set to begin tomorrow, August 1, 2020, in the hub cities of Toronto and Edmonton, with six Canadian teams battling for the Stanley Cup.
The NHL successfully tested the ice with three exhibition games on Tuesday, July 28, two of which featuring all Canadian teams, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Montreal Canadiens (final score 4-2) and Edmonton Oilers vs Calgary Flames (4-1). A total of nine more exhibition games were played on July 29th and 30th, which saw the Vancouver Canucks fall to the Winnipeg Jets 4-1 at the NHL bubble in Edmonton.
To enhance the audience experience watching the broadcast, NHL is set to use technology with virtual crowd noise, goal horns, team goal songs and additional video angles. To top off the fan experience and to add more excitement to the playoffs, OfficePools.com is inviting fans to participate in their free NHL Playoff Bracket Challenge Presented by Biosteel. Fans can sign up before August 1st and pick their teams they think will win all the way through to the Stanley Cup Finals earning points for each correct prediction. The winners will receive BioSteel gift packs, including signed Connor McDavid gear.
