Yesterday at a different site, I made a prediction, rather tongue in cheek, but ultimately, I suspected, accurate. At last night’s Espy’s, the NHL would feature only once as a winner… when the award for best NHL player was announced (I was right on who would win it, by the way).
Instead, in the “Biggest Upset” award, we had a big upset. ESPN viewers, who never see hockey on that network, actually voted for the Kings to win the award for their surprising run at the Stanley Cup from the 8th seed. This was almost a bigger upset than their run at the Cup itself
