Who barely got past who?
Other than the last game, LF didn't exactly blow out HC now did they. LF took series to a 5-5 tie, while GP got the job done at 5-3.
LF was missing players earlier in series? OK. But GP was missing three of their top players for the last game and still beat WBH.
While WBH stumbled early in the series and HC fell short in their last game, neither team should be made light of. Fact is, both stepped up their game in the playoffs and made a good series of it.
Predictions of a sweep by either LF or GP in the finals is unlikely. At full strength, both of these teams can play. Should be a good battle.
