Until something happens in the future to change it, Kings-Canadiens only really means one thing – the 1993 Stanley Cup Final. Even with the Kings winning two Cups in the last three years, and the Habs not making the Final again since that year, there will forever be something that just feels a little bit off about that series. It isn’t the fact the Kings lost, it’s more about how they lost. For example, the burden Marty McSorley still carried for 20 years (see here). Now, many people are even predicting these two teams to meet up again for the Cup next June. That would certainly be interesting.
In the meantime, we have come up with five notes that will very likely make you sound smart while watching all the action with a friend or loved one tonight… or even at a sports bar talking to strangers…
