The 2014 National Hockey League season is in full swing, and the post-season playoffs are quickly approaching, having many hockey fans excited about what the coming weeks hold. With the Stanley Cup quickly approaching, many of the league’s top teams are vying for a spot in the Stanley Cup. One of the biggest match ups in preparing for the Stanley Cup featured the Chicago Blackhawks against the Boston Bruins. This was the official matchup last year for the Stanley Cup finals and is a game that many people believe will be a Stanley Cup preview for this year’s final. Ultimately, the Bruins walked away with the victory.
Currently the Boston Bruins are the winningest team in the league. They are also at the head of the Eastern Conference. With the current Eastern Conference competition relatively week in this conference, the Boston Bruins are still expected to walk away with the top spot in their conference. The Chicago Blackhawks are another heavily favored team in the NHL, and while they are in the notoriously difficult Western Conference, they are still expected to find success in the post-season. As the league’s defending champions, many are expecting big things from the Blackhawks as they make their way towards another Stanley Cup victory.
