Tampa, FL (PRWEB) May 31, 2015
The 122nd time the Stanley Cup trophy has been awarded to a franchise will come down to the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Chicago Blackhawks. The two teams have taken part in some of the most exciting playoff series in the history of the NHL to reach this point with the ultimate goal being skating around the ice with the trophy in your hands. The seven game series will kick off on Wednesday, June 3rd (6/3/15) when the Blackhawks will travel to the Amalie Arena to take on the Lightning. If necessary, the seventh game would be help in Tampa Bay on June 17.
To reach this series, the Lightning had to compete in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference and had great success, going 50-24-8 with 108 points and a second place finish behind the Montreal Canadiens. In the opening round of the playoffs, the Lightning needed seven games to knock off the Detroit Red Wings, setting up a showdown with the Canadiens. They needed just six games to win that series which then brought them to New York and Madison Square Garden. The exciting seven game series saw both teams look remarkable at times and look terrible at others. In the end, it was a 2-0 win in game seven that will give Tampa Bay a chance to win just their second Stanley Cup and first since 2003-04.
In the Western Conference, the Blackhawks began their run into the playoffs by going 48-28-6 with 102 points and third place in the Central Division. In their opening round series, they needed six games to knock off the Nashville Predators to advance to a series with the Minnesota Wild. The Blackhawks swept them in four games, but didn’t have the same luck against the Anaheim Ducks. The back and forth series saw both teams have their chances to advance to the finals, but it was the Blackhawks winning the decisive game 5-3 to earn the chance to win their sixth Stanley Cup championship.
The Amalie Arena will be the site of games one and two, and if necessary, games five and seven. The venue has been the home of the Lightning since it originally opened in 1996. The venue can seat close to 20,000 fans for hockey games and it will surely be sold out when these two teams compete for the greatest trophy in the sport of hockey. This venue was formerly known as Tampa Bay Times Forum, however, early last September the Times Forum was renamed the Amalie Arena after the Lightning's owner, Jeff Vinik made an agreement with Tampa based oil company, Amalie Oil Company.
If their conference finals series were any indication, this should be an exciting series that could go the distance. Who will be the biggest stars of the series that help lead their team to a title?
