The Stanley Cup Finals begin on Monday and the Pucks of a Feather staff puts in their predictions on who will lift Lord Stanely at the end of it all.
For the first time in years, Anaheim Ducks fans are on the outside looking in. While at first it was a disappointment to see our teams summer on the links start early, there have been a few benefits to the Ducks missing the playoffs. We’ve finally had the opportunity to focus on the Stanley Cup Finals as a whole.
Our focus hasn’t solely been on one series while simultaneously routing against every other team who made it into the playoffs. We haven’t had to struggle with the disappointment of our team missing the Stanley Cups Finals by a mile once again.
This year we have been challenged with the task of making up our minds about teams we normally root against. It’s caused us to think critically and have fun while doing it, and while we are still Anaheim Ducks fans through and through, we have had the opportunity to interact with other fanbases and cheer for players we think truly deserve a shot at the Cup.
The playoffs started with 16 teams who, one by one, were eliminated from the playoff race. Starting with the Tampa Bay Lightning, they dropped like flies until only the Boston Bruins and the St. Louis Blues were left.
On Monday, May 27th, the final battle for the Stanely Cup begins. The Pucks of a Feather staff has put in their predictions for the 2019 Stanely Cup Finals. Do we think St. Louis will be singing the blues or Boston become the prey?
