The Stanley Cup Finals are now set. It’s an unlikely match-up between a #6 and a #8 team. And to get there, they had to beat a #1 and #3 team. At that point, the Kings were expected to make it through to the Finals, while the Devils pulled off a bit of an upset over the Rangers.
It was also somewhat difficult to guess the length of the series. The Devils’ medium length series threw everyone off, while not many thought the Kings would dispatch the Coyotes in such quick fashion.
The standings are still pretty close, and it’s still anyone’s Pick ‘Em. So to that end, check below for the complete results of Round Three, and check back Wednesday for the Stanley Cup Final picks.
