The Race for Lord Stanley’s Cup begins April 9. There is nothing quite like playoff hockey. This year both of my favorite teams are in, the Dallas Stars and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Dallas Stars are coming in with having lost in the first round the last two years with not the best of performances. This year the Stars are hoping that their newest player Brad Richards does what he did in his first game with the Stars. The Stars acquired Brad Richards from the Tampa Bay Lighting at the trade dead line this year. In his first game with the Stars he recorded an amazing five assists. But since that game the Stars have stumbled with a record of 4-8-2. Stars fan are hoping that keep the momentum going from their last game where they beat the San Jose Sharks in a game with over 160 penalty minutes. The Stars will have to face last year’s Stanley Cups winners and division rivals the Anaheim Ducks. It should be a good hard series make sure you don’t miss out and get tickets here:
The Pittsburgh Penguins have been doing amazing this year with all their young talent, most notably Sidney Crosby their captain. The Penguins also hope to get out of a playoff funk. Last year they lost in the first round in five games to the Ottawa Senators. This year they again face the Senators in the first round this time though the Senators are the underdog. Penguins’ fans aren’t willing to underestimate the Senators though. The Senators started the season extremely strong with a record of 13-2-0 in their first 15 games of the season. Even though the Senators squeaked into the playoffs. If they can find the magic they had at the first of the season. The Penguins will have their hands full against them. So don’t miss Penguins as the young Crosby looks to raise the Cup, find your tickets here:
