For the first time since 1979, two Original Six behe moths will battle in the Stanley Cup Final, but which team will be victorious in Game 1? The Boston Bruins are coming off an unprecedented sweep of the ultra-talented Pittsburgh Penguins, and the Chicago Blackhawks took care of the defending champion Los Angeles Kings.
The Bruins were considered the underdog against the Penguins, but they dominated and battered the Penguins in four short games, says Bleacher Report.
The Blackhawks have been a favorite for greatness all year long. They are the Presidents' Trophy winner, they just dethroned the reigning Stanley Cup champs and they have a pretty good roster.
None of this matters heading into Game 1 because a lucky bounce can ultimately change a game and the fate of a series. Wednesday night will be a night for hockey, and it should be a great battle between two teams with different strengths.
The Blackhawks have an elite offense led by Patrick Sharp, Marian Hossa, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews. Each has a versatile skill set which allows them to take control of a game in a positive way.
Against the Los Angeles Kings the Blackhawks' offense was a difference-maker, and the Bruins' defense will have the tough task of shutting them down. Or will it be easy?
The Bruins' defense and two-way forwards just rendered the NHL's best offense useless in four consecutive games. While the Blackhawks' offense is impressive, it was weaker than the Penguins for most of the playoffs.
Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, James Neal, Jarome Iginla, Chris Kunitz, Brandon Sutter and Pascal Dupuis were non-factors against the Bruins, and the same could happen to the Blackhawks.
The Bruins have a blueprint on how to shut down a star-studded offense, and this is a storyline that will be talked about all series long.
