2017 Stanley Cup Finals preview

           It\’s what we\’ve been waiting for many months. It\’s the Stanley Cup Finals. 28 teams are playing golf, the other two are looking to win it all. They\’re the Nashville Predators and the Pittsburgh Penguins. It will all come down to this question: who will lift Lord Stanley\’s Cup?

            Nashville Predators

            Conference finals: vs Anaheim Ducks in 6 games (Western)
P.K. Subban and the Nashville Predators danced past the Anahiem Ducks to win the Clarence S. Campbell trophy. Pekka Rinne has been the best goalie in the playoffs. Even though forwards Kevin Fiala and Ryan Johansen are out for the playoffs, the Preds still have a very good chance at winning the first Cup in franchise history after making the first conference finals and Cup finals in history. They might be the 16th seed, but they look much stronger.

             Pittsburgh Penguins

             Conference finals: vs Ottawa Senators in 7 games (Eastern)
The defending champs couldn\’t put away the Ottawa Senators until Chris Kunitz became the hero in 2OT in game seven. Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel all played well. Justin Schultz has turned into Kris Letang while Letang is out. Conor Sheary and Jake Guentzal have stepped up big time. Whether Matt Murray or Marc-Andre Fleury is in net, the Pens have a stud saving goals.

              Prediction: Nashville Predators
It\’s their year. It\’s hard to pick against the defending champs, but a team hasn\’t repeated Cups since the Detroit Red Wings did so 20 years ago. It just doesn\’t happen any more. But, this easily could go 7 games, so it\’ll be very entertaining, like every Cup final.
