CHICAGO (AP) -Just a few months ago, Jonathan Toews (tayvz) and Mike Richards were Olympic teammates who helped Canada bring home the gold medal in men's hockey at Vancouver.
The two young captains will now lead their teams - and battle each other - for the Stanley Cup championship. Toews has led the Chicago Blackhawks to the Western Conference title and Richards has done the same in the East with the Philadelphia Flyers.
The players are 1-2 in scoring in the NHL playoffs. How they play will go a long way in determining which city starving for a hockey championship will be celebrating.
