The National Hockey League (NHL) has just announced the 2013 Stanley Cup Final schedule and the final two teams are set. The Stanley Cup Finals will pit the Western Conference champion Chicago Blackhawks against the Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins.
Based on the regular-season performance, Chicago Blackhawks, who finished with the best regular season record (with 77 points), will have home ice advantage and will host Games 1 and 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, as well as Games 5 and 7, if necessary. Games 3 and 4 will be in Boston, as well as Game 6, if necessary.
In the United States, NBC will telecast all Games of the best-of-seven series. In Canada, CBC and RDS will provide coverage for the entire series.
NHL Network, the League’s 24-hour, all-access pass to the most comprehensive hockey coverage, will feature special programming surrounding the Stanley Cup Final. NHL.com will continue to provide extensive digital coverage.
This is the seventh playoff series between the Bruins and the Blackhawks, with the Bruins winning five of the previous six meetings. Their most recent meeting was in the 1978 Stanley Cup Quarterfinals, where Boston swept Chicago out of the playoffs. The teams never met in the regular season.
This will be Boston’s 19th appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals, and their first since the 2011 Cup win over the Vancouver Canucks in seven games. This will be Chicago’s 12th Finals appearance, and their first since the 2010 Cup win over the Philadelphia Flyers in six games. This will be the first Stanley Cup Final to feature two Original Six teams since 1979.
