Stanley Is Coming Revisited Pt. IV


Eastern Conference Final Review

  • The Pittsburgh Penguins were battered in a sweep by the Boston Bruins! I totally did not expect this whatsoever. I was really hoping that this series would have gone a full  seven. This sweep makes the Canucks being swept by the San Jose Sharks a lot better. Poor baby Sidney Crosby probably needs somebody to give him a hug tho!

Western Conference Final Review

  • I was in favour of the Chicago Blackhawks in winning the series against the Los Angeles Kings in seven games. They did it in five.

Stanley Cup Finals Prediction

  • I originally predicted that the Pittsburgh Penguins to be the 2013 NHL Champions. Since they were swept off their feet by the Boston Bruins in four games I now realize the second place team this year no longer has a chance nor did they originally deserve it. I’m in favour of the Chicago Blackhawks winning the series against the Boston Bruins in the best of seven games.

  • In favour of the Pittsburgh Penguins over the Ottawa Senators in five. Penguins won it in five. Success!
  • In favour of the New York Rangers over the Boston Bruins in seven. Boston Bruins win it in five. Fail!

Western Conference Semifinals Review

  • In favour of the Chicago Blackhawks over the Detroit Red Wings in six. Oh looks like I got this one wrong. I thought I predicted the Hawks in seven… so fail…
  • In favour of the Los Angeles Kings over  the San Jose Sharks in seven. LA Kings took it in seven! Win!

Eastern Conference Final

  • In favour of the Pittsburgh Penguins over the Boston Bruins in a very heated series in seven games.

Western Conference Final

  • In favour of the Chicago Blackhawks over the Los Angeles Kings in seven games.

Stanley Final

  • In in favour of the Pittsburgh Penguins over the Chicago Blackhawks in the best of seven. In the final game it will go to overtime where Jerome Iginla will win his last career goal and happily retire.

(Please note I will make a Stanley Cup Final prediction if these two teams do not face each other!)

Stanley Is Coming Revisited Pt. I


The 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs are now underway. I made some predictions for the first round last year which were disastrous. My prediction rate isn’t the best but it isn’t exactly a science to it like visiting a fortune teller… So I am going to do the same this year and stick with it…
