Last night, we witnessed one of the most intense games of hockey that we have seen in quite some time. Captain Jonathan Toews and the defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks left everything they had out on the ice; unfortunately, after an intense overtime period, it was just not enough to overcome captain Dustin Brown and the Los Angeles Kings.
So, now that both the Eastern and Western Conference Champions have been decided, it is time to get down to business to find out which team will have the privilege of holding the greatest trophy in all of sports, the Stanley Cup, high above their heads.
All of the action gets started on Wednesday night when the Rangers travel to the Staples Center to take on the Kings in Game 1 at 8:00 p.m.
Here is a look at all the information you’ll need to make sure you don’t miss a minute of the action during the final round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Both of these two teams have what it takes to win. The Rangers and the Kings both have tremendously talented players on their benches. I know I have said this time and time again, but series like this are clearly decided by the team that wants it the most.
The real question is which side has the fire and passion inside of them to take it all the way to the Cup? I guess we’ll have to watch and find out.
