Stanley Cup Finals

Anaheim Ducks

Why I like 'em

*PPG (Penner, Perry, & Getzlaf) line. They have been practically unstoppable. They are so big and so powerful. Getzlaf has 13 points (five goals and eight assists), Penner has five points (two goals and three assists), and Perry has nine points (four goals and five assists.) The thing that I like about this line is that Getzlaf has 24 penalty minutes and Perry has 27 penalty minutes, but, Penner has no penalties. None...seems like he is doing pretty well. He may not be putting up the points but he for sure isn't hurting the Ducks.

*Their checking line...a lot of people say Jersey has the best checking line...but I don't know that they compare to Robbie Niedermayer, Sammy Pahlsson, and Travis Moen. They are amazing.

*Their goalies. I love them both. Giguere is amazing and has been on FIRE this playoff run. Bryz is so funny and I adore him.

*My hometown boys. Yeah that's right...these boys played right here in Cincinnati. I got to watch them develop as players and rock the AHL the year of the lockout.

*Their defense is amazing. Pronger, Niedermayer, Beauchemin, and O'Donnell I don't know that it gets much better than those top four. As much crap as I will probably get for saying this...I like Pronger...I do...he is tough, fun to watch, and as long as he is on the ice and not talking I like him. Scott Niedermayer is the best skater in the NHL he can do anything. And the other two well Beauchemin was mine (well on my team) once upon a time. And, O'Donnell well he is the one that falls out of the lime light. But, he truely does deserve to be up there.

Ottawa Senators

Why I like them!

*Ray Emery...it's pretty hard not to like Emery. How many guys can fight with a big smile on their face?! I know I wouldn't be smiling. He is a great goalie and has been outstanding in the playoffs.

*Alfie the Captain. I have never seen someone play like this in the playoffs. I would love to see him be the first European Captain to raise the Cup.

*Their top line Alfie, Spezza, and Heatley. Whether it's Spezza's passing ability, Heatley's goal scoring ability, and Alfie's crazy playoff run this is one fun line to watch and you can't help but like them.

I will be watching the Finals closely, cheering for both teams...GO DUCKS AND GO SENS!

I'm glad you had problems finding who to root for too. I just can't figure it out.. even after one game of watching.

You should have seen me last night...going back and fourth...it was brutal and after the game I had the strangest emotion...I don't even know what to think...

i think the Ottawa senators have to step their game up,if they want to win both their home games. I they let Anahiem win the next game, they have no one but themselves to blame and very well cost them the loss of the series and the Stanley cup.
