It was two years today ago that the L.A. Kings beat the New Jersey Devils for the Stanley Cup in game six. They could do it again tonight except this time against the New York Rangers and if they do it will be in a four game sweep.

It is sad that the Bruins aren’t in it but what can you do? I’m thinking about how long my playoff beard would be at this point. It's been 10 weeks since the playoffs began which brings to my next question, since when have we been playing hockey in mid June?

Is it just me or is hockey in June a newer concept. As I remember the Stanley Cup finals normally wrapped up either at the end of May or maybe if the series went seven games, the first week in June.

Regardless of the length, you can’t find a better playoff run than that of NHL hockey.
