Stanley Cup Finals Start Tonight!


The Ottawa Senators played a great series but alas, the Pittsburgh Penguins triumphed in overtime in game 7. Now there's no chance the Stanley Cup will come home to Canada this year *sob*

But we must be strong and carry on.

So the Pittsburgh Penguins are playing the Nashville Predators for the Stanley Cup. The first game in the series is tonight.

As between those two teams, we are cheering for the Penguins and Canada's current greatest hockey player, Sidney Crosby. He's a good Nova Scotia boy. Go, Sid, go!

If the cup can't come home to Canada, then at least it can go to a Canadian. Go Team!

I really have reservations about SC still playing. Kind of takes the fun out of it but then I don't run the NHL and hopefully he has had good advice!

Adam said...

Don't they always skate on ice made from Canadian water?

Used to love the Penguins when Mario Lemieux was playing. My second favourite team after the Canadiens.

Given the chooses, I sure hope the Penguins squelch the Predators. They sound like a much nice and less violent team.
Sorry for Ottawa's loss. That makes me sad too. Next year.

I didn't even realize it is now Cup time. It is a big deal here when the Bruins are involved but I guess they aren't so things are quiet.

I was listening to a news update, and when they said that the Penguins had beaten the Predators I cheered. My Piano Man looked at me like I had just lost my mind--I don't really follow hokey. I explained that I was cheering for you, and he stopped looking for the straight jacket. :-D

I read your blog and another who are into hockey. I don't know much but I enjoy the passion you girls have for the sport.

I agree, Sidney is a good Nova Scotia boy!
