Wow, I did not see that one coming. The Boston Bruins lam-blasting the favoured Pittsburgh Penguins 4-0 and white washing their way through to the Eastern Conference title and hence the Stanley Cup Finals which are to start on the 12th of June. Honestly I am shocked that the Penguins who looked heavy title contenders lay down like sheep and were mowed down by the physical brute force of the Bruins. The Penguins will have some name changes in the squad during the offseason and some players will be looking for new homes for the next season. Expect some trades and some free agents to not get offers to stay.
Meeting the Bruins in the finals will be the Chicago Blackhawks and although they had a much tougher conference finals against the defending champions the Los Angeles Kings, I think it will be the Hawks celebrating on the ice at the end of the finals. Atleast I hope so as I do not much like the Beantown bullies. Chicago had a 4-2 series win against the Kings and will be a bit more tired than the =ir opponents but having done it all in 2009 the franchise will want to drink from Lord Stanley’s bowl once again. I hope it’s a 7 game series with Chicago coming out on top.
