Playoffs - Stanley Cup Finale (2/4 - 10/4)

4 previous EMLH Masters competed in this playoffs during the first three rounds but none of them managed to reach up to the finals, because actual best world players Alaq and North Star prevented to make it happen. Old Kings are dead, let the new King live. Who will become the One?

(1) Alaq vs North Star (2)

Alaq wins the series 4-3 (3:0, 6:1, 4:3, 3:6, 1:2, 2:3, 5:4)

AlaqMaster wins the Stanley Cup!


Career head-to-head matches: 1-1 (2:1 for North Star, 4:3 for Alaq)
Pre-game preview, by North Star: The semifinals are behind, only the finale is ahead ... The climax of the season. It's uncommon to start a series at a party. What to say about alaq? He is one of the most acute players in terms of completing attacks. He win Steel, and it says a lot. He has a strong team, there are no weak lines in it. I look forward to a hot fight. Retreat nowhere. I know how the Pole will be motivated. He failed at different stages of the PO, now he is in the final. To the coveted trophy one step, but it is the most difficult. I hope the connection will be good.
Pre-game preview, by Alaq: North Star (aka Scottie Upshall) is one of the hardest opponents I have ever played against, he's been one of the absolutely the best performers in the Russian League. I've never played against him in the playoffs but regular season games against him were very challenging, he has no weaknesses in his games so I expect a very tough series. His path to the finals wasn't easy, as it involved Konopes, so I'd say that I approach it from the position of underdog, despite the regular season success. First finals in my NHL 04 career, it's going to be fun!

I have been closely watching this playoff. Congratulations to Alaq from Vikfee. The Playoff results reflect the Top-notch season that the league has had. No one can take this success from Alaq; the history has been made. Yet, characteristically, it could have been different...
