NHL Playoff Pickem: Stanley Cup Finals: The Stanley Cup Finals drop the puck at 7:30 p.m. Eastern on Saturday when the Dallas Stars face the Tampa Bay Lightning. Never before has the NHL come down to two Sun Belt teams. For the NHL Playoff Pickem, predict the series winner and games required, six props and a tiebreaker. Geneparmesan leads with 171, 23 over Cixelsyd. Good luck!

If this was a normal year I'd be getting tickets to at least one of the games in Tampa to see my Dallas Stars. But if it was normal would the Stars be playing this final? Dallas is thriving in the bubble. Never underestimate how hard a team will play to avoid the Texas heat in August and September.

(I tried in both Firefox and effing Edge, but couldn't get the form to work. Anyhow, I did get it posted before the puck dropped :) )

Let's go Stars.
