NHL Week in Review (June 1-7)

The Stanley Cup Finals are under way as the Los Angeles Kings and the New York Rangers face-off to achieve a dream of every player.

It was one of the first major expansions in the NHL and they would look to the West Coast to add two teams.

Stanley Cup Preview

Sometimes it is best to go with your first instinct as a blogger that does predictions and I have learned this with the NHL season. In my 2011-12 season preview I predicted a Los Angeles vs. Philadelphia Stanley Cup Finals. I changed my tune though when it came to the playoffs as I then looked to a Nashville vs. Pittsburgh Finals.
