Which NHL team is going to win the Stanley Cup?
- by admin
The Boston Bruins are expected to win their third Stanley Cup, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to do it with all of the right pieces around them.
Here’s how we ranked the Stanley Championship contenders, according to their chances of winning the cup.
The Stanley Cup will be held March 6 in Chicago.
The Boston Bruins have been one of the most exciting teams in the NHL this season.
They won the Presidents Trophy last season and are looking to repeat.
They are led by their young core, which is led by captain Zdeno Chara and young defenseman Tuukka Rask.
The team has won 10 of its last 13 Stanley Cup games.
Boston has one of its best goaltenders in Tuukkan Ekman-Larsson.
He is one of only two goalies in the league with a save percentage of .930, and has been one or two goals away from tying for the league lead.
The Bruins also have an impressive group of young players.
The biggest threat to Boston’s Stanley Cup chances is Auston Matthews, who has five goals and seven assists in his last nine games.
The 21-year-old has been a key piece to Boston.
The Bruins also play the Detroit Red Wings, who are just a game out of the Stanley Final.
The Chicago Blackhawks, led by Jonathan Toews, are poised to win a third straight Stanley Cup.
The Chicago Blackhawks are led almost entirely by Chicago Blackhawks players.
Toews is the best goal-scorer in the NBA.
Chicago is second in scoring, third in goals per game and first in shots per game.
The Nashville Predators, led almost solely by superstar Vladimir Tarasenko, have an extremely talented group of players, including center Filip Forsberg and defenseman Shea Weber.
Taraskin has three goals and four assists in five games this season, which ranks second in the League behind the New York Rangers’ Ryan McDonagh.
Nashville is a playoff team.
The Los Angeles Kings, led nearly entirely by the team’s stars, including Connor McDavid, have a talented core that includes Ryan Getzlaf, Joe Pavelski, Mike Richards and Drew Doughty.
The Kings have won seven of their last nine Stanley Cup finals.
The New York Islanders are just two games out of a first-round bye and have a chance to make it to the Stanley Tournament for the first time since 2004.
They have an amazing roster, led in the front end by defensemen Kyle Okposo and Nick Leddy, who have been among the NHL’s most consistent players.
They’ve won nine of their past 10 games.
The Detroit Red Stars are one of four teams with a chance of making the playoffs this season but have a lot of work to do.
They play the Los Angeles Blues, who play the Colorado Avalanche, who played the Anaheim Ducks, who lost in the first round last season.
The Red Stars have won 10 straight games.
