It's that time again. Who's going with alternate jerseys in the postseason this year?

Of the clinched teams, Minnesota probably.  Columbus is a maybe, but I'd say its less than 50% likely.

Of the teams that will likely make the playoffs, Ottawa might, Sharks might, Ducks could but probably wont.  Oilers probably will, since the orange jersey is the home jersey next season.

Sharks will never wear their "Black Armor" jerseys in the playoffs again due to past history of doing so and the success of last year. I am willing to bet a very good amount of money on it.

It's been confirmed the Oilers are in orange in the playoffs to lead into those uniforms full time next year.

I'm willing to bet money on the Anaheim "#PaintItOrange" Ducks wearing black at home.

Hoping the Flames will use their retros but given their recent ineptitude for uniforms, I'm not hopeful.

I'm thinking the Capitals will again.  Especially if they go to the retro look full-time next year, which has been a long time rumour for a while now.  That comes directly from higher ups within the organization

Edmonton is confirmed. Minnesota is almost definite. They have always worn their 3rds in the playoffs since they were introduced. Washington is possible, they wore the road alternates last year in the playoffs. The only other teams I could see doing it is Ottawa or Anaheim.

It's probably not going to happen, but I would love it if the Jackets wore their alternates at home in the postseason. The Union+Steel Blue combo vs the Penguins' bright yellow would be a phenomenal matchup.

I hate alternates/throwbacks in the playoffs.

Ottawa's very unlikely. They have no history of doing so and in all likelihood the heritage =O= will be put on the shelf for at least next season with the alternates disappearing, so it makes no sense why they'd switch now.

I would be so happy if the Ducks did, but they didn't bother with it last year so I'm not counting on it.

I just think there's a small chance because of the rumors of them going =O= full time next year, but yea, I don't think they will either.

Might be an unpopular opinion, but I actually don't like the CBJ thirds that much. I like their regular jersey better.

Design of third jersey but in current colors.

The Cannon is inferior to their main logo in every possible way.  Also, vintage white and silver mix as well as oil and water.

I saw on Twitter over the weekend that the Flames might be wearing their thirds/throwbacks at home for the playoffs.

The Capitals I still believe are doing the same.  Wearing their thirds for the home portion of the playoffs.

Where did you see this Calgary news? Just curious. I actually like Calgary better with black. Although we all know that the edge template ruined those jerseys. I wonder if this means they are going the throwback route next year with the new Adidas jerseys
