Stanley Cup Final Chicago V Philadelphia preview
Only one team can be named Champion! these teams have both showed it in these playoffs. Let's start with Chicago, after a series in which game 6 and 7 written all over it came to a end in 4! Chicago eliminated top seed San Jose. Jonathon Toews and Byfuglien have been the stars to watch for Chicago. Jonathan Toews leads all players in points and assist. Byfuglien got comfortable as the series went on and shined in the Canucks and Sharks series. Also let's focus on Niemi. The rookie from Finland has been the best goalie in the NHL in the past couple weeks. He's i think the reason why Blackhawks are even in the final with his superb goal tending. This team has lot's of depth,speed,and skill. On the other now to Philly. First of all let's go back even before the playoffs began when the rangers and Flyers battled it out who goes and who goes home? it went to a shootout and Flyers prevailed. Now they appear in the Stanley Cup Final V Chicago. Both teams won their conference, Chicago wins the Campell trophy as victors of the West, and the Prince of Wales victors of the eastern conference (Flyers). Now Flyers got passed #2 seed Devils in 5. They made history coming back against Boston in 7. Ripping Canadians into threads in 5, now in the final with Hawks. Mike Richards the captain of the Flyers has been the man for the flyers with his hard hitting goalscoring,playmaking, and Hussle. Another guy to watch out for is Danny Briere, he's been I think the goalscorer for philly. One more guy to watch out for is Carter, even though this is his first series but he had 4 goals 1 assist in the canadian series. All of those guy's Chicago has to watch out for! on to defense, Pronger has been the defensemen of the playoffs with his great passing and size. He will be matchedup with Byfuglien for the Cup final I'm thinking. Leighton has been the story for Flyers! putting a record in the books with 3 shutouts in Philly playoff history. I think this is the matchup of the playoffs1 Niemi v Leighton! goal tending will be important for this series because theirs dangerous players on both sides. Both teams will be under lot's of pressure! Game 1 Saturday 8:00 ET.
