Finally! After an 82 game regular season that began in October and a grueling three playoff rounds, the San Jose Sharks and the Pittsburgh Penguins start the round that counts, with the winner getting to hoist that beautiful piece of silver over their heads. One of these teams is four wins away from bragging rights that will last a lifetime, but they'll sure have to work hard to earn it.
This should be a great series. The Pens were the hottest team in the league to end the regular season, and the Sharks have exorcised their demons to become the best of the West. Mayhem on the ice will ensue and viewing parties will be banned.
