Friday Four: Penguins, Predators have much in common

NHL Network's Kevin Weekes also discusses playoff runs of injury-riddled Ducks, overachieving Senators

Each Friday throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Kevin Weekes will be bringing you his Friday Four. He will be blogging about four players, teams, plays, or trends that have caught his eye.

First: I think it is going to be an incredible Stanley Cup Final between two fast, deep and extremely skilled teams in the Pittsburgh Penguins and Nashville Predators. Stylistically, that matchup is going to be fun to watch. The Final also features two United States-born coaches, Mike Sullivan and Peter Laviolette, the first time that has happened in NHL history. It's great for the game of hockey.

Edmonton Oilers

It was a feel-good story when the Oilers defeated the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday to clinch their first Stanley Cup Playoff berth since 2006. But the Oilers aren't done.
