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.

Gomez a perfect fit with the Rangers

Tonight at 7:30 PM EDT, the Rangers will kick off back-to-back games against the two teams from Florida. First, the Rangers will face off against the Panthers. The Panthers enter tonights game on a 5 game win streak and are 5-1-1 since losing 5-0 to the Rangers on February 24.

Since their last game against the Panthers, the Rangers are 5-0-1, winning three times and losing once in the shootout. Currently, the Rangers are sporting a 13-game “unbeaten-in-regulation” streak dating back to the 2-0 win over the Flyers on February 9. Will the Rangers extend that streak? I say yes.

The Rangers will roll the same lineup that they’ve been using except Marek Malik is still out from the hit he took during the 1-0 shootout win against the Bruins on March 9. Jason Strudwick will step in. Henrik Lundqvist will be in net.

Last Rangers-Panthers game:
The Rangers won 5-0 with goals scored by Scott Gomez, Marek Malik, Jaromir Jagr, Nigel Dawes, and Martin Straka. Henrik Lundqvist made 23 saves for his eighth shutout of the season. He has gotten his ninth since then.

If you would like to hear Dennis Potvin then watch the highlights from the game:

Notes:
  • Scott Gomez has gone (3-11-14) over the last 13 games.
  • Henrik Lundqvist is sporting an 8-0-2 record with a 1.97 GAA, .924 SV% and 2 shutouts in his last 11 starts.
