Pittsburgh in six

30 teams started the NHL race on October 4, 2008. Pittsburgh started the season with a pair against Ottawa in Stockholm, Sweden and tonight they start the Stanley Cup Final in Detroit. WhatIfSports.com predicts Detroit in seven games. My WHL colleague on Shaw-TV, play-by-play announcer Dan Russell, has predicted Pittsburgh in seven. I will go along with the Penguins but think they will "take it all" in six.

Earlier this week, Shaw Communications and the Western Hockey League (WHL) announced they have extended their partnership for an additional five years. Shaw also had some exciting international coverage over the Christmas holidays that I voiced promos for. video
Bring on NHL coverage for Shaw I say!

Anyway, a mass of Chris' in the Stanley Cup Final.

For Detroit: Chris Osgood, Chris Chelios and Kris Draper.

Pittsburgh has Chris Kunitz and Kris Letang.
