It just doesn’t get any better than this. Two Game Sevens to determine who meets next week to vie for the Stanley Cup.
New York/Tampa and Anaheim/Chicago have produced both fabulously close games and utterly one-sided fiascos that make picking the ultimate winners nigh on impossible.
If you’re a fan of one of these teams, of course you have a rooting interest. But for most of us – “Don’t care! Just want to see them go at it”.
The reality of any Game Seven is that anybody can win. One weird bounce and even the lowest member of the fourth line can become an instant hero.
This is gonna be a fun weekend.
Come Monday we’ll know who’s meeting who for the Cup and who among our Poolies still has a shot at the title.
We’ll also be debuting this season’s Props Contest, giving everybody a second chance at sharing some of the glory.
And as we go into the final periods of Round Three, Will Dixon still holds a commanding lead. (Uncle Willis loves it when I append his name with words like “commanding”)
Chris Sheasgreen hangs in at second with Wil Zmak a distant but persistent third. I’m thinking the podium won’t change over the weekend.
