And The Stanley Cup Is About To Begin

The Road to the Stanley Cup

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!
