SPNHL, Season 37: Conference Finals – Players of the Week
Welcome back to SPNHL Players of the Week, conference finals edition. We are down to the final 2 teams here in the Season 37 SPNHL season. It’s been a long road for the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Winnipeg Jets, but nearly 9 weeks later, they are the last 2 standing. Each team has had amazing performances from their players, but let’s see who stood out in the conference finals.
Bunzy-62: 6 GP, 12 G, 9 A, 21 P, 3.5 PPG, +1, 87 GV, 7 TK.
Normally, I do not like giving player of the week to an eliminated player, but the Flyers stayed in their series with Tampa thanks to Bunzy. This guy put a chip on his shoulder, and did literally everything he could to will the Flyers to the finals. Unfortunately for him and the rest of the team, the Lightning were just the better overall group, but at no fault of Bunzy. With 12 goals and 9 assists in round 2, Bunzy did his very best and was in fact the best forward of the conference finals.
i9i-stamkos-i1ic: 6 GP, 8 G, 10 A, 18 P, 3.0 PPG, -1, 57 GV, 16 TK
bluedevil631: 4 GP, 7 G, 5 A, 12 P, 3.0 PPG, +2, 37 GV, 9 TK.
Elfpha: 4 GP, 3 G, 7 A, 10 P, 2.5 PPG, +6, 55 GV, 16 TK.
PistolPete7788_: 6 GP, 4 G, 7 A, 11 P, 1.8 PPG, -1, 40 GV, 15 TK
Pete yet again wins player of the week amongst all defenders, and it really shouldn’t be a surprise anymore at this point. With 4 goals and 7 assists in round 2, Pete is the x-factor that Tampa Bay needs to produce for one more series. They have amazing forwards, but Pete puts them over the top and is going to be a dangerous player in the Stanley Cup Finals. Will Winnipeg figure out how to stop him, or is he just too much for every team to handle.

CaptCanada_: 4 GP, 0 G, 4 A, 4 P, 1.0 PPG, +6, 24 GV, 7 TK.
NHLBEAST-: 4 GP, 2-2, .843 SV%, 3.30 GAA, 0 SO.
Philadelphia is making me break all my rules, but yet again, NHLBeast was the best goaltender in the conference finals. He boasted a .843 save percentage, despite still having 3.3 goals against per game. The Lightning shot everything at him, and he was up for the task. He did all he could, and through no fault of his own, he had to go home.
