Stanley Cup Finals Tickets
Teams: Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks
The moment hockey fans all over the country have been waiting for has finally arrived and the Stanley Cup Finals will feature two teams that are all to familiar with the series. Boston will make their first appearance since winning the Cup in 2011 while Chicago is just another year removed having snagged the hardware in 2010. Both teams have been exceptionally good throughout the playoffs especially in OT having only lost one game a piece in extra time. On paper the Blackhawks look to have a skilled lineup that is nearly perfect lead by Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane but the other side of the puck has been deceptively dangerous in the playoffs. With David Krejci, Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton combining for 19 goals this spring, 5 of which were game winners, the Bruins present a challenging task to the Blackhawks. The 2013 Stanley Cup Finals are upon us and look to be more unpredictable than ever.

The Stanley Cup is the final series of postseason games of the National Hockey League. The Stanley Cup is won by winning four of seven games played between the champions of the Western and Eastern Conferences. The Stanley Cup is the trophy awarded to the team who wins the Finals. That team's members are inscribed on the cup itself, and the team keeps the cup until another team wins the finals, at the earliest the following year. The Stanley Cup is also known as "the Cup", "“the Holy Grail" or ironically, "Lord Stanley's Mug". The trophy itself was donated in 1892 by the Governor General of Canada, Lord Stanley, to the top-ranked amateur hockey team in Canada. With various league expansions and consolidations, the Stanley Cup has become the oldest sports trophy in North America and the highest ice hockey honor in the world.
The Stanley Cup Finals games are played at the respective home arenas of the two final teams competing for the championship. The team with the better regular season record receives the home ice advantage in the Stanley Cup Finals, and hosts games 1, 2, 5, and 7, whereas the team without that advantage hosts games 3, 4, and 6. In a sport like hockey where the fans are practically on the ice with the players, a home rink advantage is huge. Just ask the Montreal Canadiens who have won more Stanley Cups than any other team.
The Stanley Cup Finals are one of the great sporting events on earth. The event is the culmination of months of regular season games and multiple rounds of postseason best of seven series. The Stanley Cup Finals prove beyond any doubt who is the best and the toughest team in the National Hockey League. Buy Stanley Cup Finals tickets today and don't miss a second of Stanley Cup action!
