2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 
I think everyone would agree that the Conference Finals produced two great rounds of hockey. I could have watched a few more Anaheim and Nashville games if the series was extended. That was the most entertaining of the two series’ in my opinion. With each round the ref’s have continued to let more and more go. It will be interesting to see how the Stanley Cup final is officiated. The Ottawa v. Pittsburgh series was certainly much more tame than the other.

Conference Finals
After going 4 for 4 with my second round picks I managed to go a dismal 0 for 2 in the Conference Final. I did think Anaheim would take Nashville but I am glad Nashville won. It would have been fitting for Ottawa to win their series in the year of Canada’s 150th anniversary, but it was not to be. Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

2017 Stanley Cup Prediction
I would have to believe that Pittsburgh will be the favourite going into the Stanley Cup final but really have a soft spot for Nashville. I like the style of game the Preds have and think they are exciting to watch. My pick is sort of based on my personal preference of the winner and who I want to win.

Prediction:  Nashville Predators in 6 games

The Stanley Cup final begins Monday at 8pm EST/ 5pm PST. Bring it on!
