Kukla's Korner Hockey

In the United States, which houses the league's other 23 teams, it doesn't matter which club makes it to the final -- if one is based in the U.S., and the other in Canada, you can bet there will be chants of "USA! USA!" from the fans. Americans have more of an our-country-against-theirs mentality.
In Canada, fans tend to remain loyal to their favourite teams, but when you haven't had a Canadian-based Stanley Cup champ for so long, maybe it's time to temporarily cheer for the one team that can put Canada back on the NHL map.
