    Ooo glad I saw this! Just got back from a year abroad in Canada and one of my fav things was defs going to see hockey! I was based in Calgary so am a Flames fan (and a Hitmen fan if any of you are WHL watchers too), however during playoffs was cheering Penguins (after Iggy moved from Flames to Penguins would have liked to see him win). Interested to see how the first game will go!

    Tbh I focused mainly on the Canadian teams and the games inbetween Canadian teams so couldn't call it as don't have enough knowledge of Chicago or Boston. If forced to call I'd say the Blackhawks.

    So great to see an ice hockey thread on here.

    I'm a Canadian (living in the UK at the moment), so ice hockey is a huge part of my life.

    I'm a Vancouver Canucks fan, as I'm from the Vancouver area.

    As for the Stanley Cup Final, I've got split loyalties, because some of the Canadian national team's best players can be found in both the Blackhawks and Bruins squads. I'm plumping for a Blackhawks win though, they have been superb throughout the play-offs.

    Amazing to see an ice hockey thread here! I've been an ice hockey fan since I was 6 although i've never attempted to ice skate myself, let alone play hockey. As I come from Manchester, I was a big follower of the Manchester Storm (Superleague 2000-2002), whilst also being a huge Red Wings fan. Like others here, I always watched Hockey on Ch Five and wish it came back! Then Manchester Storm finished and packed up and my interest in British hockey dwindled until around 2008 where I started to support Storm's replacement, the Manchester Phoenix. In 2009, I went to nyc for a holiday and instantly became a Ranger fan when I saw the atmosphere outside MSG during their home season opener (although i did not go to the game). Ever since, i've been a HUGE HUGE NY Ranger fan, as well as the detroit red wings and manchester phoenix

    Good to have you on here. I wanted the red wings to beat the hawks, there youngsters did a great job in the playoffs and in the run-in to get them there. They outplayed the ducks and gave the hawks a good run.
    Not sure how Rangers managed to get past washington...a mixture of ovechkin not turning up and lundqvis being a meanie.

    Tonight I want the hawks to win... won't be making any predictions though, its just too hard to call. If bruins actually come out in the 1st period unlike the other night they should win.

    Yeah its ridculously high end stuff as well, I believe Boston has 17 stanley cup champions on their team...considering there's 20 on a team thats just fkin silly. The hawks dominated the reg season and got too much talent too not take this to a game 7...did you finish watching the game? Spicing up nicely for game 4. You gotta think Hawks got to take the next one.
