Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Penguins on winning the 2016 Stanley Cup. The Penguins defeated San Jose Sharks last night in Game 6 of the series, 3-1 and winning the series 4-2. It is the fourth championship for the Penguins in the franchise history.  Congratulations to Sidney Crosby on winning the Conn Symthe Trophy as the most valuable player in the playoffs.

At first, I felt that gave it to him out of popularity, but his contribution in the last game probably gave it to him.  I thought his teammates, Phil Kessel or Matt Murray, had far more contributions in leading the team to winning their fourth Cup.  But, it is not about the best player in all the series, but the one would made most impact in the final series.

So alas, I guess it is alright to touch the Prince of Wales trophy before the Finals.

Congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks on winning the 2015 Stanley Cup. The Blackhawks defeated Tampa Bay Lightning last night in Game 6 of the series, 2-0 and winning the series 4-2. It is the third championship for the Hawks in the last 6 years. It is the first time in 77 years that the Hawks won the Cup on home ice. Congratulations to Duncan Keith on winning the Conn Symthe Trophy as the most valuable player in the playoffs.  It was the ninth time a defenseman won it.

 

Looking forward for a repeat performance in 2016.

Congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks on winning the 2013 Stanley Cup as the NHL Champions.

The Hawks scored two goals near the end of Game 6 to defeat the Boston Bruins to win the series 4-2.

Patrick Kane wins the Conn Symthe Trophy as the most valuable player in the playoffs.

I am surprised this year to have picked the winner in the correct number of games. So, I finished with 10-5 record with 86 games played out of 92 games predicted.

Cannot wait for next season to begin in October.
