2014 playoffs

As you may have seen since the beginning of the calendar year, the NHL has a new corporate sponsor that is integrating its branding throughout the postseason.

BRP, makers of the Can-Am Spyder, served as an official sponsor of the 2014 NHL Stadium Series held in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago and the 2014 NHL Heritage Classic in Vancouver.

Now, as part of its NHL relationship, BRP is the presenting sponsor of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs Bracket Challenge featured on NHL.com. Fans can go online to select the winners of each playoff series – from the first round all the way to the Stanley Cup Final. One lucky winner of the Stanley Cup Playoffs Bracket Challenge powered by BRP’s Can-Am Spyder will win an NHL team-branded Can-Am Spyder.

As part of the relationship between BRP and the NHL, six-time Stanley Cup champion Mark Messier has signed-on to promote the unique Can-Am Spyder three-wheeled on-road vehicle to the lives of sports, lifestyle and adventure-seeking consumers.

Messier stars in a video vignette that highlights his winning “guarantee” 20 years ago, when his New York Rangers faced elimination in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final. This video presents a new spin on how Messier’s life changed after he guaranteed the win, and can be viewed online at GuaranteedByMessier.com.

    Ducks buried all quality chances early and Dallas didn’t. Hard to come back when you are down 3,4-0, but Dallas made a game of it. I see Dallas beating Ducks a few games, maybe more if Stars can steal one on the road. Hab’s-Bolts game was really entertaining, but there were many defensive zone breakdowns and blown coverage that led to goals for both teams. Goalies for both teams weren’t very good either. Habs should ultimately beat these guys, but Bolts play tough, and have weapons of their own that can fill the net. Didn’t watch as much of the Pens-BJ’s, but one thing seems apparent. Pens don’t like getting hit, and are loose in their own end. If Pitt gets out of first round I see these guys going out after that. I just don’t think they are that good.

    Man, do I hope the Hawks steal game 1 tonight…A strong 1st period ending with Hawks in front will be important.
    Lets Go Hawks!
