The Stanley Cup Finals Matchup Is Set

One participant will be an Original Six franchise that, in the aughts, hit rock bottom with an unpopular owner (but not our Original Six franchise that, in the aughts, hit rock bottom with an unpopular owner). The other participant will be an Eastern Conference team that had a very mediocre regular season and whose playoff hopes came down to a shootout on the last day of the season (but, alas, not our Eastern Conference team that had a very mediocre regular season and whose playoff hopes came down to a shootout on the last day of the season). So, yeah, Blackhawks-Flyers begins Saturday night. What's that? No, we're not bitter at all. Why do you ask?
