With the Los Angeles Kings’ Game Seven victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night, the Conference Final round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs will be ushered in.
The Kings take on the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks, who took care of Los Angeles in five games in last season’s Conference Final.
It could have been another rematch on the East coast, but both the Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins fell in the second round. Instead, the Montreal Canadiens and New York Rangers will battle for a chance to go to the Stanley Cup Final.
One interesting fact about this season’s Final Four: Both teams in each conference were back-to-back champions in their most recent Stanley Cup wins. The Canadiens won in 1993, the Rangers in 1994, the Kings in 2012, and the Blackhawks in 2013.
Good luck to fans of the teams still left, and those with a decent-looking bracket after the half-way point!
