Stanley Cup Finals Breakdown: Blackhawks Vs. Lightning Infographic

Bryan Altman, CBS Local Sports

The Chicago Blackhawks and Tampa Bay Lightning are the last two teams standing and will begin their best-of-seven series on Wednesday night for the right to be remembered as Stanley Cup champions forever. Experts from around the hockey world have made their picks and fans are chomping at the bit to see which of these teams can come out on top once it's all said and done.

The Lightning are, well, lightning fast. They have a tenacious forecheck and arguably the best line going in hockey - "The Triplets" - featuring Tyler Johnson, Ondrej Palat and Nikita Kucherov. Still, they're the new kids on the block.

These Blackhawks have been here before. Ice doesn't just run beneath their skates, it runs through their veins in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They know what it takes to win and are lead by captain and two-time Stanley Cup champion Jonathan Toews, who plays to win at all costs.
