Eddie Olczyk is having deja vu, and it should please Blackhawks fans.
The color commentator appeared on the Dan Patrick Show on Thursday and predicted a rematch of last year's Stanley Cup Final between the Blackhawks and Bruins, with Joel Quenneville and Co. hoisting their third Stanley Cup.
"Well right now I'd have to go a rematch of last year. I think you have to go Boston and Chicago. Chicago comes out of a tough series with St. Louis, getting down two games and then finding a way to win four straight," he said.
Olczyk also said 2014 is shaping up to be one of the better playoffs in some time. With four Original Six teams still remaining (Blackhawks, Canadiens, Bruins, New York Rangers), a pair of California teams squaring off against each other and a Stanley Cup Final rematch still in play, hockey fans should be excited.
"That's the beauty of it, especially at this time of the year. Boston had to take down Detroit, an Original Six, now they have to take on their long-time rival in the Montreal Canadiens," Olczyk. "And then the LA-San Jose series, that's got to be must-see television. You've got two teams that don't like each other, you've got starpower everywhere."
