The 2017-18 Women’s Hockey League regular season came to an end this past week with a couple of two-game sets: Biryusa Krasnoyarsk beat Arktik-Universitet Ukhta 6-4 and 4-0, while Tornado Moscow Oblast tore up the league’s bottom club, SK Sverdlovsk Oblast, by scores of 14-2 and 13-2. Those two blowouts of SKSO allowed Tornado’s Anna Shokhina to secure her grip on the scoring title (she posted 11 points over the two games), and they also muddied the waters a bit when it comes to analyzing her team’s playoff prospects, as we shall see. However, the results had no effect whatsoever on the final standings, so we need not go into them in depth.
Instead, we look ahead to the first-ever Women’s Hockey League playoffs, which gets underway on Tuesday! So read on, as we check out the match-ups in the two semifinal series, and try to work out who the key players to watch will be!
