The NBA Finals Start Tomorrow. But You Should Check Out the Stanley Cup Finals Tonight.

I’m a die hard L.A. Kings fan. This year they made the playoffs, but lost in the first round. But I’m also a die hard hockey fan, and while the NBA Finals start tomorrow night, and the World Cup starts June 11, don’t miss out on the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Games 1 and 2 of the 7 game series were won by the Chicago Blackhawks in Chicago.  Game 3 is tonight. And this one is in Philadelphia, ironically named the “City of Brotherly Love.” Check it out at 5 P.M. (PDT) on Versus, channel 603 on Directv. Right after bull riding. And right before bull riding.

Click more to see what you might be missing if you’re not glued to the game tonight.

First…what it’s like to win the ultimate prize in Hockey: The Stanley Cup

The Philadelphia Flyers defied all the odds. They only made the playoffs on a shootout, in the very last game of the season. They weren’t favored to beat anyone along the way. They were behind 3 games to 0 in a 7 game series against Boston, and WON.

The last time a team came back from 3-0 in the playoffs was 35 years ago. Now they’re down 2 games to the Chicago Blackhawks, which for most teams is disastrous. But not this year’s Flyers.

Check this out:

The NHL Stanley Cup Finals is like the NBA mixed with the UFC. On steroids. And Red Bull. And Meth. Don’t be bad. Just watch it.

    Hey look Kevin, A Sensation the Kings don’t know, a Loss of words for winning the cup. Since, well, they haven’t and never will.

  2. Susan K says:

    Thanks, Kevin. Like you, I’m a diehard fan of a team that isn’t in the Finals this year (the Red Wings, if you must know) – but I’m also a major fan of hockey! There is not a time when that cup gets hoisted at the end of the final game that I don’t cry! It’s an awesome game, takes major skills, and I’m so surprised that it doesn’t get the viewership it deserves. So watch!!

  3. Dave says:

    Kevin! Nice work throwing up a post about hockey. Most people only talk about the Lakers right now, but a real sports fan would realize this series has been amazing to watch.

  4. Tristan says:

    GO LEAFS GO!!!…next year…?

  5. Vince says:

    Hockey, meh. What a bad time for the NBA Finals to start right when the World Cup is just around the corner. Good luck with the ratings.

    LETS GO RED WINGS!!!!!! LIDSTROM BACK FOR ANOTHER YEAR. Again in what sport can you get in the mouth with a puck, lose 7 teeth, get an injection in your mouth, come back next period and finish the game and than still do an interview. Seriously, how can someone not thing that Hockey is THE TOUGHEST sport out there. Thanks Kevin for loving this great sport as well.

    I’m just happy knowing that once again no Canadian teams in the Final. 1993 was the last time.

    I know I know…but there are so many Canadians in the NHL blah blah blah. Fact is: USA USA USA USA USA USA USA. Suck America’s Hat. Canada BLOWS.

    1. Edmund F says:

      Sorry…Suck IT America’s hat was what I meant. How’s that not being America going?
