The Finals are set, and it will be the 2010 and 2011 champions, Chicago and Boston respectively, duking it out to see who gets the Cup again. To get there, Chicago dethroned defending champs Los Angeles in five games, while Boston swept past a very powerful Pittsburgh team, despite losing Gregory Campbell to a broken leg in Game 3. Campbell exhibited toughness enough to finish his shift, which is a big indicator as to how Boston was able to blow past the Penguins.
With everyone picking a different set of winners in our competition, nobody was able to get too far ahead or behind from where they were beforehand. With both series wrapping up much more quickly than our experts believed, gathering points was kept to a minimum.
So check below for the results from the third round, and come back Wednesday night for the picks for the Stanley Cup Finals.
