In these hectic last few weeks I had almost forgotten the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs were still happening. For me the National Hockey League's 2012-2013 season ended when the Toronto Maple Leafs were sent to the golf course, by the Boston Bruins in the first round. I was a happy man.

That moment reminded me of the end scene in Woody Allen's 1971 movie Bananas, where famed play-by-play announcer Howard Cosell shouts: "It's over... It's allll over!"

Last night the Bruins eliminated the Los Angeles Kings, courtesy of Patrick Kane's goal in double overtime.

So; the Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks are going to fight it out in the final round for the magnificent Stanley Cup.

Too bad it's so June....
