It’s no surprise that this Stanley Cup Final is playing out the exact stereotype of what hockey is all about. It’s a battle; a game of chances defined by who wants it more and who is willing to sacrifice the most for a win. The 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Final has seen four games; three of which have gone to overtime, with the other game ending up a nail-biter. There have been battles resulting in wins, losses, and even some scars.
The ugliness is the sport at its finest, and after almost four months without a game of professional hockey, it’s a perfect ending to a truncated season.
