The question is: am I referring to the Red Wings or the Penguins?
Red Wings vs. Penguins looks like a foregone conclusion for the Stanley Cup Finals, which should make hockey fans, TV executives, and the NHL all happy.
Both teams are playing on a different level from everyone else. The Penguins have an incredible 11-1 record in the playoffs, with their only loss coming against the Rangers in game 4 of that series. The 11-2 Red Wings, meanwhile, are riding a 9-game winning streak and look pretty much unstoppable.
The only question left for the conference finals is whether both teams will sweep. The Red Wings and Stars play game 4 tonight in Dallas, while Pittsburgh and Philadelphia play their game 4 tomorrow in Philly.
