It’s the calm before the storm…aka the night before the Stanley Cup Finals start.
I. AM. A. NERVOUS. WRECK.
If you read my previous 2014 Stanley Cup Predictions, you know I had NYR winning against COL in my Fantasy Bracket and had NYR winning against CHI in my Honest to Goodness Bracket (reality bracket).
I remember when I posted the bracket in my office, a coworker said “NYR all the way. You’re nuts. Did you pick them because you’re a fan?”
As I said in the previous post, I’m not a professional in the world of hockey so yeah, my feelings as a fan of hockey does weigh in. In my Fantasy Bracket, absolutely picked them to go all the way because I’m a fan and like the 4th line over the “kid line” of DET. In my Honest to Goodness Bracket, I picked them to go all the way because there’s something about the team this year that’s the “little engine that could” that I have been impressed with all season and that’s even when they were at their worst. There was just this flame that though it dimmed it never burned out.
I still fill that way today.
It will be a tough road, but I believe the New York Rangers will take the Stanley Cup this year. It’s their time.
