As far as playoffs go, few exceed the passion and excitement of the Stanley Cup Finals. It’s the ultimate battle between the toughest ice warriors on the planet. Whether it’s experience versus youth or brains versus brawn, the winning team always exemplifies extreme endurance and a bottomless reserve of passion. Playoff berths aren’t casually handed out in the NHL. They’re won through grueling effort, brutal sacrifice and intense focus. The battle-tested Red Wings may have won the first two games of the series, but the Penguins showed in Game 3 that they belong in the Finals and won’t go gently into second place. With a 10-0 playoff record at home, one can only assume the Penguins have a surprise or two in store for Detroit. But when it’s all said and done, the Finals come down to one thing…the Stanley Cup. Hockey’s highest honor…the Holy Grail.
Unlike the Red Wings and the Penguins (who have to earn it), it’s much easier for regular fans to get their hands on the Stanley Cup. No matter waiting in line for a quick flash of glory…now anyone can bring home the Stanley Cup in Fathead form. Measuring 1′7″W x 3′3″H, the cup can transform any room into a hall of fame.
