NHL Playoff Predictions: Stanley Cup Finals

So, in the semi-finals I picked both of the teams with home ice advantage … and got both wrong. But those were two amazing series that could have easily gone either way, so I don’t feel too bad about that. Still, that lowers my record to 8 – 6, so let’s see what happens with the final.

This is an amazingly tough series to call. You don’t want to pick against Chicago, who has made it to the finals and won Cups before with this team and with their stars. They know how to win in the finals. Tampa Bay doesn’t have that experience yet. But except for the first round they’ve made a habit of winning series against teams with more experience and that most people picked to win over them. It hasn’t always been pretty, but they’ve won when they’ve had to, with Bishop not always playing well but playing well when he needs to, and ultimately beating better goaltenders than himself.

Still, it’s hard to go against Chicago’s experience, so I’m going to go with them.

Prediction: Chicago Correct
