In a rematch of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final, there’s a new contender for the crown of hockey’s ultimate championship.
The NHL will hold its final games on Tuesday night, Nov. 27, at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Here’s a look at the top teams in the Eastern Conference.
The Stars, led by Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, are the best team in the league at capturing the Stanley Cup, according to Sports Illustrated’s Jeff Veillette.
Benn is the NHL’s top rookie in terms of goals scored, and his 22 points are tied for the second-most in the League.
Seguinchen, who leads the League with 38 points, has two assists and four points in four games.
That group is led by captain Jamie Benn and goalie Kari Lehtonen, who have each scored at least 10 goals in each of the past five games.
They have played the last two games without captain Valeri Nichushkin, who is out with a lower-body injury.
In addition, the Stars are the first team in League history to win six straight playoff games and the first since the 2009-10 Bruins.
They are 4-1-1 since Lehton.
They’ve also played the final three games without Patrick Sharp, who has been out with an upper-body problem.
They’re 4-0-1 in those games.
Stars forward Tyler Segerstrom and defenseman Johnny Oduya are the two most-used players in the NHL.
They each have four goals and nine assists in the last four games, and are tied with each other for the most points in the Conference.
They also have four first-place votes in the Central.
They lead the NHL with 23 goals.
A lot of this is tied to the return of Sharp and Nichushki, who were traded to the Bruins this past week.
They were acquired in exchange for veteran defenseman Johnny Boychuk.
The Bruins have been dominant since the start of the season, winning the Stanley, Presidents’ Trophy and Hart Trophy.
They haven’t lost in regulation since October.
Their only loss came at home to the Nashville Predators, who defeated them 6-3 on Dec. 22.
They’ve won the Stanley three times, including two consecutive Stanley Cups from 1993-94 and 1996-97.
They are the only team in NHL history to record a three-game winning streak against the Blackhawks, who haven’t won in six games this season.
The Blackhawks also have lost five straight against the Stars.
In the Eastern, Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is the first player in NHL postseason history to score at least 30 goals in four consecutive games.
He has three goals in his last five games, including a power-play goal on Sunday.
The Flyers have won eight of their last 10 and have won the Eastern Division for the first time since 2010.
Philadelphia leads the league with 57 points, while the New York Islanders and New York Rangers are tied at the bottom of the League standings with 45 points each.
Injuries to Claude Giroux and Brayden Schenn have hampered the Flyers, who are 6-4-1 without Giroux, who missed two games with a knee injury.
Giroux has four goals in the past four games after scoring three goals and four assists in his first 17 games.
Schenner is third with three goals.
In addition to Giroux (back) and Schenns (upper-body), the Stars, Capitals and Lightning have each lost three of their past four.
The Lightning are 3-3-0 in the playoffs.
The Predators have won three straight games against the Flyers and Penguins, winning each of those games 3-1.
They also have won four straight games in the conference.
The Stars were swept in the first round of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
