16 teams entered the Staney Cup playoffs with hopes to play for the ultimate trophy.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Nashville Predators

And then there were two.

The Penguins and Predators took different paths to make to the Stanley Cup Final, but all that matters now is that both teams will have a chance to take home the Holy Grail.

The Predators earned a berth into the final due to their incredible strength at the back end, whereas the Penguins forced their way in thanks to their elite talent up front.

It will be a spectacular battle of contrasting styles, that’s sure to give us many talking points as the series goes on. Unfortunately for both clubs, they’ll be without the services of key players, most notably centre Ryan Johansen for the Predators, and defenceman Kris Letang for the Penguins.
