Flyers to face Blackhawks in Stanley Cup finals

NHL.com @NHL

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - When NHL commissioner Gary Bettman hands the Stanley Cup to Chicago captain Jonathan Toews or Philadelphia counterpart Mike Richards, a hockey-crazed city will be satisfied for the first time in decades.

The Stanley Cup finals are set: Blackhawks vs. Flyers.

Chicago hasn't claimed the silver chalice since 1961, when there were only six NHL teams, and Philadelphia wasn't one of them. The Flyers are seeking their first title since hoisting the Cup in 1974 and 1975 when the franchise was less than 10 years old.
