The Chicago Blackhawks Next Stanley Cup Winner?

The Chicago Blackhawks Next Stanley Cup Winner?

Chicago Blackhawks swept their way into the Stanley Cup Finals. The Philadelphia Flyers had to avoid a near sweep to win the right to play for the Cup. Philadelphia has not been a Stanley Cup winner since 1975 and it has been even longer that a trophy has been hoisted over the head of a Blackhawk player. It was 1961 to be exact.

Many experts think that the Blackhawks have a chance to end a 49 year drought and win the Stanley Cup. They are a very versatile hockey team that can do a lot to win. If defense is needed they can play that style of hockey and if team need to use speed then the Blackhawks can get victory as well.

Philadelphia Flyers have played some inspired hockey throughout the playoffs. It may be difficult to beat a squad like Chicago, but it does help to have possibly the hottest goaltender in the playoffs Michael Leighton. Leighton continues his great goaltending then Blackhawks may have some problems.

The Blackhawks time is now and it could not have been scripted any better. Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane will do all they can to ensure that they provide the Blackhawks enough points. Thus far, the tandem has been a load to stop. This could spell a Stanley Cup Champion for the Blackhawks.
