My 2017 Stanley Cup Finals preview + pick

My 2017 Stanley Cup Finals preview + pick

How about this NHL postseason so far. It’s been a great one, maybe the best in a long time. We now reach the final series of the season. The defending champions are back, I’m speaking of the Pittsburgh Penguins. They take on the red hot Nashville Predators, who was the last team to enter the postseason. I think the Predators have had one of the most impressive postseason runs in sports in years. Blowing away the competition after facing the Blackhawks, Blues, and the Anaheim Ducks. Also it is great to see the city of Nashville embracing this outstanding hockey team. Now the Predators have a golden opportunity to win a Stanley Cup for there team and there city. However the mighty Pittsburgh Penguins will have something to say about that. The Penguins made a bold move in changing goaltenders going with Matt Murray instead of Marc Andre Fleury lately when they fell behind the Ottawa Senators early in the series. So it paid off for the Penguins who themselves have had a fantastic postseason run of there own. So here is my pick: Nashville in 7 games. This should be a great Stanley Cup final and I can’t wait to start watching.
