It’s finally here! The Stanley Cup finals gets underway on May 30 at 8pm EST, as the San Jose Sharks and Pittsburgh Penguins battle it out for ice hockey’s ultimate prize. You won’t want to miss game 1, so join us here for the live stream!
It all boils down to this! The San Jose Sharks and Pittsburgh Penguins have been simply amazing all season, but now something has to give. The two go head-to-head in game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals in what should be an absolutely fascinating contest. But who will strike first in the series? Click down for the live stream to watch the thrilling game!
The game is already being billed as the battle between ice hockey’s biggest stars Sidney Crosby and Joe Pavelski. The two have been in spectacular form as their respective teams have marched towards the Stanley Cup finals with relative ease.
This is the first time the Sharks has ever got this far, so this is completely new territory for them. They probably could’ve reached their first final two years had they not blown a 3-0 lead against LA Kings in the first round playoffs in 2014. The Kings eventually went on to win it, so the Sharks must be happy they’ve made it this time round.
Their more prestigious opponents the Penguins have real Stanley Cup pedigree and great history. But you don’t need to remind their fans that it’s been 7-years since they last won the competition. If they win it this time, that will take their tally up to four Stanley Cup wins. Impressive stuff!
We’re sure it’s going to be a great game, and a totally bruising encounter between hockey’s most aggressive teams. May the best team win!
