Over the next month, we at NHLnumbers are going to be taking a look at where each team in the league currently stands based on what we learned from them last season, and where they realistically can and should go this summer with the resources and cap space they have. Also, sweet throwback pads from Trevor Kidd in the pic above, no?
Carolina was an imperfect storm in 2015-16, meddling through an 86-point season. Rough goaltending, a lack of offence and a talented, but young defensive group performed perhaps above some expectations, but still didn't light the league on fire. A bubble playoff teams at times during the season... Carolina heads into the 2016 offseason as one of the most crucial years in this franchise's future. The team appears to be on the come-up, but as we all know, that's easier said than done.

One game in the NHL on a given night is kind of a mixed bag of emotions. It's nice to be able to focus just on one game, without having to channel flip or worry you're watching the wrong one.

With that being said, here's what went down last night:

Dallas St. Louis could be a great name for a fictional character, or the name of Martin St. Louis' next kid.
But unfortunately, it's just the name of two teams meeting in the playoffs, as the Dallas Stars take on the St. Louis Blues in the Western Conference second round series.

The night of Monday, April 25, 2016 will go down in NHL history for a number of reasons.
One, it was the night the Nashville Predators forced their first ever Game 7. Such a proud moment for a young franchise.
Two, it was the last night of NHL hockey until... Wednesday.
And three, it was the night that the St. Louis Blues overcame their playoff demons and defeated the Chicago Blackhawks.
With that being said, let's take a quick look back at the night that was in the NHL.
