2013 Stanley Cup Finals

The NHL has announced the schedule for the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals.  It is the first Original Six Series in the Cup Final since 1979.  It should be a very competitive and exciting series to watch this year.  Here is the schedule:

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12, 2013 8 p.m. BOSTON AT CHICAGO
SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 2013 8 p.m. BOSTON AT CHICAGO
MONDAY, JUNE 17, 2013 8 p.m. CHICAGO AT BOSTON
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19, 2013 8 p.m. CHICAGO AT BOSTON
*SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 2013 8 p.m. BOSTON AT CHICAGO
*MONDAY, JUNE 24, 2013 8 p.m. CHICAGO AT BOSTON
*WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26, 2013 8 p.m. BOSTON AT CHICAGO

The games will be broadcasted on NBC or NBC Sports Network in the States and CBC and RDS in Canada.

During the Finals, the winners to the 2013 NHL awards will be announced.

So, which team do I think will it this year?

I’m definitely think the Hawks are the team to beat.  They have proven it all season with someone stepping up each game.  Penalty killing has been outstanding this playoff run as well as goal tending.  Corey Crawford is definitely leading candidate for the Conn Symthe Trophy if the Hawks win.  Better results on the power play, winning face-offs, and controlling the neutral zone during 5 on 5 will be keys for Hawks.

The Bruins playoff run this year has been the production of their top forwards.  This would need to continue against the Hawks especially on the power play.  Like the Hawks, the Bruins goal tending has been solid as well.  The health of their defense will be a key factor in this series.  It will take another team effort like they did against the Penguins to beat the Hawks this year.  If the Bruins win the series, the leading Conn Symthe contenders would be Tuuka Rusk or any one of the top forwards.

I like the Hawks in 6.
