The biggest stage for anyone who put on a pair of skates and shoulder pads has arrived. The Stanley Cup Finals plays finale to a impressive NHL playoffs that acquired some new fans. Representing the Eastern Conference is the Tampa Bay Lightning. From strangers to the big stage, the Lightning were able to upset #1 ranked and defending Eastern Conference champions New York Rangers. The Lightning have some studs in Steven Stamkos and Tyler Johnson who are amongst the league’s best players. Meanwhile, the Chicago Blackhawks are slowly become a regular at the Stanley Cup. Representing the Western Conference, the Blackhawks are just a talented team from top to bottom. Led by center Johnathan Toews, defensemen Duncan Keith and wingman Patrick Kane, Chicago are prone to light it up, within a blank of a eye. Other than their swaggy sweaters becoming apart of the fashion culture, Chicago are the new generation powerhouse who shows no signs of letting up. So far, the Blackhawks leads the series 1-0. Even though this has been an exciting NHL playoffs, it’s sad that it’s spotlight will be foreshadowed thanks to the NBA Finals.
