Games 5, 6 & 7 were incredibly intense. Great sport.
I love NHL hockey, but the fact that the last two championships have gone to warm weather cities has to grate on the nerves of the traditionalists.
Regardless, with the limited exception of the NBA, unlike any other sport, the NHL really does gather together the best players in the world...US, Canada, Russia, Euro, the nordic states.
Doesn't translate all that well to the small screen, but I don't care...great game to watch, wherever.
