While the local L.A. Kings are long gone from the playoffs, the Stanley Cup Finals begin Saturday night as the Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers take to the ice, with the Hawks hosting the first two games.
The Flyers’ miraculous comeback against the Bruins — down 3-0 in games, and down 3-0 in the pivotal game 7 — will have them inspired, while the Blackhawks, which haven’t won the Cup since 1961 and their 49 years without a title is the longest active drought in the league.
Doc Emrick will handle play-by-play, while former Blackhawk Eddie Olczyk serves as analyst.
