And then there were two

It’s been a long, grueling and thrilling playoffs so far, and now we’re at the Stanley Cup Final!

While we’ve had an upset or three getting here, it can be said that the two most deserving teams did make it through to this stage. Defending champions Tampa Bay Lightning overcame the New York Rangers and will be looking to make it three in a row against the Colorado Avalanche who swept the Edmonton Oilers in the Conference Finals.

The series gets underway on Wednesday June 15th with the Avs holding home advantage.

It's a tough pick for me.  AV's have an insanely good defense and one crazy talented line.  TB has an average D, but are stacked 3 lines deep on offense and a big edge at Goaltending.

If the Av's can continue to play their heavy game and the officiating continues to be a bit more old school hockey, I can see the Av's shutting down TB or at least minimizing their offensive advantage.

I still think TB in 6.  Goaltending is a big difference maker.
