Tomorrow (Wednesday June 4th) The NHL Stanley Cup playoffs are about to begin. I thought I could call the shots and predict who would be playing and I could not have been further from the truth.
I just figured it would be a Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks repeat. Turns out I picked the wrong ponies and am now sadly looking at a New York Rangers vs. LA Kings final. Let’s just call it the Media Series since it’s the American east vs. West media hubs.
First of all, I did not see this final coming at all. I had zero faith in the Rangers and I felt the west was just too strong to allow LA to sneak through. I didn’t see it coming so much, that my playoff hockey pool is really going to go downhill fast as I only have two LA players on my roster!
I don’t know if this is going to be a good series, but New York has been surprising this playoffs. After Montreal took out the Boston Bruins I thought they would have rolled right over the Rangers, but New York persevered I guess the morale is, never count out any team in the playoffs.
Of course, if I have to guess, I would predict that the LA Kings will win the cup in 6 games.
Let’s see how wrong I am!
