So here we go. Neither team has ever won the Cup. Okay, cool. So, who is going to take it?
Well, looking at what the scribes, handicappers and pundits thinkâ€”they are all split.
Letâ€™s look at goaltending. Emery versus Giguere. Giguere has a 1.87 GAA and a .931 SV%. Emery possesses a 1.96 GAA and a .919 SV %. Okayâ€”who is better? Emery, younger and perhaps with more refined tools, may be the man to which to look.
Depth goes to the work horse Ducks. They have a slight edge.
Pronger and Niedermeyer are both on the Ducks. That is a scary thought, especially if they can be consistent. Ottawa captain Alfredsson, that determined Swede, has been tough to stop. Heatley and Spezza have been spectacular.
Pahlsson-Niedermayer-Moen versus the Senators. The big â€œDâ€? against the â€œOâ€? of Ottawa. Could go either way.
The Ducks have been inconsistent on defense while the offense for the Senators has been tough to stop.
This should be a great finals match-up.
