It is tradition not to touch the the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl (western conf trophy) or the Prince of Wales Trophy (eastern conf trophy), and it is bad karma to mess with that. The Stanley Cup will obvioiusly be another story for one of these two teams...

I was lucky enough to get tickets to game one - taking my youngest son (who is 22) - can't wait to be there for an actual Stanley Cup game.................

Doesn't give me much time to book my flight and cover work but appreciate you getting 3 tickets.

Someone asked why I didn't change my signature but it has been there all season and you do not mess with Karma.

Served me well for the regular season and have no reason to doubt it's continued affect. Strikes fear in the HTW Bruins fan club.

I'll poke that bear. With a loaded gun that is.

So are the sayin' that they will beat Boston in double OT? I'll take it.

They took out last year's Champs and the supposed unbeatable goalie in 5 games and chased him from a game. Tuki Tuki (George of the Jungle's bird) has been good without a doubt but let's remember that Toronto came real close to beating him and the Bruins. Not quite the brick wall that some make him out to be. Chicago had their moments vs Detroit also so nobody is perfect.

Crawford leads the Hawks to being the best defensive team and yet gets less respect. He must be doing something right. Let the games begin!

I agree about the 3 day layoff between games. Damn TV and the need for Saturday games. No consideration for the fans and the stress the layoffs cause. It is like torture for Boston as it will drag on their agony of defeat.

Blackhawks would be great if they didn't have to play the last minute and a half of each period....... giving up that goal with 9 seconds left was brutal.............

I knew that LA would score because I had to get up early the next day and needed double OT like a hole in the head. Also had complete faith in the win and had a feeling it would be Kane scoring.

I don't mind the delayed start but why three days between games 1 and 2? They also have games 2 and 3 on NBC Sports channel I had to upgrade my dish package just to get that bs channel and most homes don't have it.

Hawks in 7 .. most experts I hear believe the western Conference is tougher.

I'm so jealous...even though you are rooting for the wrong team.

Seriously, enjoy the game and soak up the atmosphere, such a special time for a hockey fan! This is gonna be a long day, 8pm can't come soon enough!

Love this pic...

It was 7 of 12 as fah as my picks -- now the B's will make me look like a genius -- & win the Cup -- I'll say in 6 but it could just as easily b 5 or 7 -- there's no sweeping the ChiHawks, they're too good --

it's the first O6 final since 1979, I shoulda known that -- we were a too-many-men-on-the-ice penalty away from facing Phil Esposito & the NYR for the Cup -- now how out of control would that've been

Let's go B's, we get outta town w/a split & that's Much in our favor -- the B's were so sharp against Ptsbrg (except for the double OT game) -- Chi doesn't play in the same style but they'll have to adapt to us, not vice versa

Chicago has been adapting all season which is why they were so dominant. That is part of the beauty of their team. Well rounded and can handle all styles. All 4 lines can hurt you and in many ways. The Pens never win a 1-0 game or 2-1 but Chicago sure can.

What time is it?

I wish Sang was my Dad. I love greek food and the Hawks! have fun and bring us some good luck.

Someone mentioned earlier about Phil and Tony O dropping a puck. There was an article in the paper and Phil is cheering for Chicago and has no love for the Bruins.

Here’s a look at who’s picking whom ( link).

Boston.com sports staff:

Matt Pepin: Blackhawks in 7: I expect one intense game after another, just the way a final series should be.

Steve Silva: Bruins in 6. Tuukka stays solid. And Tyler Seguin scores a goal or two.

Zuri Berry: Bruins in 5. The Bruins' defensive mastery is reminiscent of the team's 2011 Stanley Cup Final series with Canucks.

Chad Finn: Bruins in 6: As penance for losing, all blasphemous photos of Bobby Orr as a Blackhawk must be removed from the United Center.

Gary Dzen: Bruins in 6. The Bruins are too balanced and Rask is playing too well for the Blackhawks to win.

Mark Lazerus, Chicago Sun-Times: Blackhawks in seven. “Both teams are weary and surely banged-up. It’s a toss-up between two great defensive teams with two red-hot goalies. In the end, the Hawks’ offensive depth — and home-ice advantage — wins out.”

Globe staff: Four out of four pick the Bruins.

James Murphy, ESPNBoston.com: Bruins in 6. “This should be one heck of a series and could easily go the distance with either team winning. The teams are very evenly matched, but in the end, their roads to the finals might be the difference. Yes, the Blackhawks beat the defending Stanley Cup champions in the Western Conference finals, but the Bruins completely shut down one of the best offenses in recent memory in the Penguins and also blitzed the team many picked to win the Stanley Cup in the Rangers. The Bruins will get a split in Chicago to start the series and win the Cup in Game 6 back in Boston.”

Foxsports.com staff: Six out of 10 pick the Bruins.

Jesse Spector, The Sporting News: Blackhawks in seven. “I've been pretty on the ball, so the way I see this series getting decided is that either the Bruins start getting overly physical or the Blackhawks run into a too-hot goalie, which Tuukka Rask, to this point, has been. Thing is, Chicago beat a hot goalie in Quick, and Boston really appears to have a good handle on staying away from retaliatory penalties and similarly stupid nonsense.”

Sports Illustrated staff: Allain Muir and Brian Cazeneuve pick the Bruins. Sarah Kwak and Adrian Dater pick the Blackhawks. Dater: “ All my New England relatives will cut me off from receiving Dunkin’ Donuts and Papa Gino’s gift cards at Christmas, but I’ve got to stick with the Blackhawks. (Actually, the folks will be thrilled, since the dreaded #DaterJinx is now in play.) Chicago has been the league’s best team all year, so why should it stop now? The Blackhawks and Bruins both showed their character by coming back from the dead in previous series and appear to be playing their best hockey at just the right time. But with that extra home game on United Center ice, and with all the passion that brings, I like the Hawks in the final game. The Bruins aren’t going to be shutting out Kane, Toews and Hossa like they did Crosby, Malkin and Iginla. If that happens, I’ll eat nothing but Dunkin’ Donuts Boston Cremes for a year. At least I’d die happy.”

98.5 The Sports Hub staff: 16 out of 19 pick the Bruins.

NHL/NHL.com staff: 12 out of 19 pick the Blackhawks.

New England Hockey Journal staff: Four out of four pick the Bruins.

CBS Sports.com staff: Two out of three pick the Blackhawks.

ESPN staff: Nine out of 12 pick the Bruins.

Jeremy Roenick, NBC: Chicago Blackhawks, man. (We assume.)

Seems like Stanley Cups are won predominantly be goaltending. Right now Rask is playing head and shoulders above Crawford IMO. Plus, if the B's defense continues to clamp down the way the did against the Pens (2 goals against in 4 games was just mindblowing) the Hawks have no chance. Bruins in 5.

Now, that said, anyone who knows my history of making predictions should race out and load up on the Hawks.

Vegas has Chicago as favorite ... http://fansided.com/2013/06/11/final-stanley-cup-odds-chicago-blackhawks-he avy-favorites/

The odds may be a little skewed because a lot more Chicago transplants live out there and there are probably more Hawks fans in total:

Series Correct Score
Boston Bruins 4-0: 14/1
Boston Bruins 4-1: 8/1
Boston Bruins 4-2: 19/4
Boston Bruins 4-3: 5/1
Chicago Blackhawks 4-0: 9/1
Chicago Blackhawks 4-1: 4/1
Chicago Blackhawks 4-2: 9/2
Chicago Blackhawks 4-3: 5/1

You get the same odds with either team if you pick them to win in 7 They think the Hawks are more likely to win a short series.

Didn't know Sang was taking his son to a double header and I don't think he knew either. Hope they don't have to work early.

Black Hawks!!!

What a game that was! And some question whether a hockey player is the best all around conditioned athlete. Almost two games worth of ice time, hitting each other like trains, now the 3 day lay off makes sense.

Does that count as two wins in the series?

Could have gone either way. Gonna be a great Final obviously. Chicago doubled the Pens production in one game. Still think they can't score on Rask? Both goalies were awesome tonight. Probably dropped 15 lbs each.
