NHL Finals Update

June 4, 2016

Tonight in San Jose, the Pittsburgh Penguins hope to take a commanding (3-0) series lead in the Stanley Cup Finals vs the Sharks.

This will be the first home finals game in Sharks’ history.

They are close to 3 to 2 favorites at home and hopefully will not, but likely will get back into the series, with a win tonight.

After the Cup Finals ended in 4 game sweeps from (1995-1998), no final has ended in 4 games since that time.

Only the L.A. Kings in both their Stanley Cup wins in booth 2012 and 2014 went up (3-0) since 1998 and even then, it was a struggle to claim the crown.

In 2012 vs a New Jersey Devils’ team coached by current Sharks’ coach Peter DeBoer, “L.A.” needed 6 games to win.

Meanwhile in 2014, the Kings up (3-0), vs the New York Rangers, needed Alex Martinez’ overtime goal in game 5 to claim the (no pun), crown.
