The Blackhawks Vs. Bruins Is The Best Stanley Cup Finals Ever (Opinion)
Many people figured that when the Blackhawks and Bruins faced off against one another in an original six Stanley Cup Finals that it would be a spectacular match up.
Little did hockey fans know that this Stanley Cup Finals could possibly go down as the best in history. The Blackhawks tied the series at 2-2 with a 6-5 OT win at Boston last night. Three out of the first four games have gone to overtime. That has never occurred in the Finals.
Both teams have managed to win in overtime on each other’s home ice. Who could forget the Blackhawks epic 3 OT win in game 1? This has been a physical, competitive series, that will most likely go 7 games. The Bruins stingy defensive play, and superior goaltending has been the reason why they have made it this far. The Blackhawks have also been a strong defensive team with goalie Corey Crawford playing stellar as well.
Both goalies where exposed last night, and will need to make the necessary adjustments for game 5 in Chicago. The winning goal was scored by Brent Seabrook at the 9:51 mark of overtime for the Hawks. This may have been an abbreviated season, but the NHL is making up for it with what I feel will go down as the most memorable Stanley Cup Finals ever.
Only 3 games remain in this series, the question is, will all the remaining games have to be decided in overtime? With the way this series is going, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if that occurred. In case you missed Brent Seabrook’s game winning goal in overtime of game 4, here it is.
