This year is no exception as many NHL brackets have been shredded to pieces. It's been one of the craziest first round's in NHL history. The Tampa Lightning who won a historic 62 games were swept away by the Columbus Blue Jackets. The best team in the west the Calgary Flames lost in five to the Colorado Avalanche. The Pittsburgh Penguins who have won the Cup two of the last three seasons were swept by the upstart NY Islanders. The San Jose Sharks rallied from a 3-1 series deficit and down 3-0 in the 3rd period of game seven to stun the Vegas Golden Knights. To help breakdown this madness we enlisted former NHL player and current NBC hockey analyst Jeremy Roenick.
