Two Western Conference Teams Officially Eliminated From Playoff Contention

While the Eastern Conference playoff bracket is close to set, the Western Conference is still waiting to settle the final playoff spot, with Winnipeg, Nashville and Calgary all fighting for a Wild Card spot, but on Sunday night, two teams were officially eliminated from contention.

Unfortunately for both the St. Louis Blues and Vancouver Canucks, 2022/23 is just not their season, as despite the talent on both of their squads, they just failed to fire throughout the season, with the Canucks especially disappointing their fan base.

With young teams, both of these squads will no doubt be looking for a big 2023/24 season, but for now, they'll play out the remainder of the season looking to build momentum ahead of next year, with avenging the disappointment of this year on their mind.
