A lot of big events are happening around the world, but in the US this is the one thing that most sports fans are looking forward to: the Stanley Cup finals! Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers have both fought their way to the finals and its gonna be an exciting set of games coming up. The first game of the series is set in the Staples Center, Kings home ground.
New York Rangers has done good getting to the finals, but I have to say they have been somewhat lucky. First off they meet a weak Philadelphia Flyers team that has had a horrible defence this season. Next up were Pittsburgh Penguins without their star player Fleury. Finally they faced off against Canadiens that had to play without their starting goalie Carey Price. By all means, the Rangers team is quite strong, but they are facing probably the toughest team they have faced yet in the playoffs. We do not expect this team to put up the most points so if they want to keep up they are relying on Henrik Lundqvist to play his very best which he is known to do, but he may sway from his top as we saw against the Canadiens.
Los Angeles Kings has this cup in their grasp. They are the best team, they are riding a wave of big momentum. Have probably the best goalie in the league, great defence and a furious offence. It is gonna be hard for New York Rangers to keep up here. On their way to the finals they have knocked out Anaheim Ducks, San Jose Sharks and last years winners Chicago Blackhawks. And all of this were done in the last game of the series away. What a ride!
Although Kings are coming of less rest than the New Yorkers we believe that having the home field advantage and still steaming after some great games this game is still in their hands. If they can keep up this great a defence and still have an offence that scores at this rate this series is not gonna go much further than the 4th game we predict. Let us hope it gets more exciting than we predict it will!
