NHL Playoffs Expert Picks: Stanley Cup Finals Results

It’s finally over, and the Blackhawks are Stanley Cup champions for the first time since 1961. Patrick Kane scored the game winner in OT, and he was the only one who noticed that the puck went through the net. Not the way the Blackhawks thought the Cup would be won, but whatever. 47 goals were scored in six games, too. Who said there are no shootouts in the playoffs?

Surprisingly, a tiebreaker was not needed for anyone in our expert brackets. Mike made a serious push for the top, being the only one to pick the winner, series length, and MVP correctly. But alas, it was not enough. KC just held onto the lead by one point to claim victory. Come on, everybody boo the champion out of jealousy.

Now that Mrs. O’Leary’s cow won’t be the latest one to burn down Chicago, it’s time for our Pick ‘Em to end. Check below to see how everyone did:

  1. Glad to see I won. Despite Kane getting the Cup-winning goal…I really should have chosen the captain. Duh.

  2. Once I saw your picks, I knew I was done even if I nailed everything. Congrats! I always do pretty well in these things, just never manage to win one!
