Bruins? Blues? One of them will win and then the trades can begin.

After what seems like a much longer than normal playoffs, though it wasn’t, the Stanley Cup will finally be handed out tonight. One of the Blues or Bruins will become champions.

I think you know which team we here at PPP want to win this one. The game time is 8:00 p.m.

The end of the playoffs opens the door for announcement of trades and player contract signings. The Maple Leafs are expected to have a few of those. With all tho noise around a few specific players some have speculated a deal is possibly already done, but the announcement is being held back out of respect for the end of the Raptors season. The next week could be a very busy one.

For now, sit back and watch the Bruins lose.
