We have the Chicago Blackhawsks representing the west and the Philadelphia Flyers from the east.
It should be no surprise that I will be picking and cheering for the Blackhawks to win. They are my #2 team after all (Oilers are and always will be #1).
Although I am picking the Hawks to win, Philly does have a neat story of how they got to the Finals.
- Won in OT to even make it to the playoffs
- Won 4 games in a row in the 2nd round to knock off Boston. This is only the 3rd time in hockey that this has ever happened.
- Defeated the other underdog Montreal in the 3rd round to advance to the Finals.
