Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final (no "s" per Michael Smith on twitter) is tonight.

Puck drop is just after 8:00 PM tonight and the game will be televised on NBC in the states.

What's you're favorite story line coming in to the series? Is it Marty Broduer at the tail end of his career? Is it Jonathan Quick hoping to take the torch from Broduer? Is it Flyers West with Justin Williams, Simon Gagne, Jeff Carter and Mike Richards looking to win a cup while the search for a cup Philadelphia continues? Is it the fact that the Hurricanes traded Alexei Ponikarovsky for a fourth round pick only to see him playing a major role for the New Jersey Devils?

Stop by, comment on your favorite story line and the game.
