J Perm – Youtuber and Speedcuber

Recently I became interested in the Rubik’s cube, something I never remotely came close to solving as a kid. I discovered Asian Canadian Dylan Q. Wang aka J Perm who has a youtube channel that discusses all topics related to puzzle cubes like the famous 3x3x3 Rubik’s cube.

Nick Suzuki scores his first “real” playoff goal

The Montreal Canadiens defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins in their qualifying round series, 3 games to 1 in a best of 5 series, to advance to the quarter finals. This is the starting point of the traditional playoff format with 16 teams and each round now is a best of seven series. Their opponent is the Philadelphia Flyers, a team who has beaten the Canadiens in their last two playoff meetings.

Nick Suzuki hit the crossbar with less than a minute left in game 1 when trying to tie the game which the Canadiens lost.

Nick Suzuki scores his first playoff goal

Nick Suzuki scored his first playoff goal in his first playoff game on August 1, 2020. It was a nice top shelf wrist shot from his off wing. He also helped kill a crucial 5-3 penalty in the third period. The situation is different this year since the full regular season could not be played with the remaining games being cancelled due to COVID-19 quarantine in March. At that time the Montreal Canadiens were not in a playoff spot and were far away from one. But because of the new playoff format, the Canadiens now have a chance at winning the Stanley Cup but they have to participate in an extra qualifying round to get into the traditional 16 team playoff bracket.

So while this is a qualifying round game, it is still an elimination series similar to a traditional best of 7 playoff round but instead is a shorter best of 5 series. Tonight will be game 2 between the Montreal Canadiens and Pittsburgh Penguins.
