    How unique is this year's "final four" line-up of NHL teams in their ultimate quest for the Stanley Cup. Not sure if this has ever happened before, but these four teams have won the previous four championships :

    2012 - Los Angeles Kings vs. 2010 - Chicago Blackhawks

    2011 - Boston Bruins vs. 2009 - Pittsburgh Penguins

    This is going to be great hockey !!

    GO BLACKHAWKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :thumbsup:

    According to this morning's newspaper, the Pens are currently 6-5 to win it all.
    The Hawks are 5-2 ... the Bruins are 4-1 ... and the Kings are 5-1.

    A personal bet. The other guy has the hawks. Action only if one of them wins. A few days ago I thought I couldn't lose with the Red Wings up 3 games to 1.
    :grrr:

    When I was in vegas last week of April, the season wasn't over and the Orleans wasn't taking any playoff bets.

    Kings are a good bet at 5-1.

    Probably the best line, imo. Penguins is ridiculously bad at 6-5.

    The series will be tied at 2-2..........the Kings haven't lost a home game since 1992. Kings-Bruins for the Cup............and it's not because i was born and raised in Boston and live my current life in LA........LOL.

    I watched the first Boston-Pens game. Believe it or not, the Pens really dominated most of the game. They outhit and outshot the Bs by quite a bit. As a Bruins' fan, I was happy to get out of there with a W.

    Holy Bear Shit

    Disclaimer, I am a life long B's fan. Going into this series I thought my B's would be lucky to take it to 5. But what the F... happened on the way to the Garden? 3-0 and 6-1??? I am very, very happy. Did the Pens develop a taste for 'ludes?

    To Sid the Kid and the other supposedly superior company, suck twice more!!!

    Kings trying to make it a series even though quite a few injuries at the moment. Last year on their way to the Cup they got through without any serious injuries, now a few of their key players have concussions.

    That was the first thing I wondered watching the game. I am hoping the team will actually show up tonight for a change this series, but have a heavy sense of dread they won't. On a positive attempt, they have come back before.

    Hawks & Kings game 3 was very rough & physical, with Kings winning their first. Duncan Keith of the Hawks got roughed up, and retaliated with a high sticking, causing facial stitches ... and he is now suspended for game 4 tonight. Expect another tough physical game ... Hawks have to be more savy, or the Kings will steamroll their way into another win, making it 2-2.

    GO HAWKS !!!

    It's not even the greatest game in Boston 2013 playoff history. They were down 4-1 in the 3rd period of game 7 in the first round.

    That Campbell play though...holy shit.

    Blackhawks win game 4 , 3-2 ... scoring the go-ahead goal only 1:10 into the beginning of the 3rd period ... and holding the Kings to only 2 shots on goal in the entire 3rd period.

    Hawks now return home, with a 3 to 1 series advantage.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    Boston and Pittsburgh play game 4 on Friday. Boston up 3 to 0.
