June is here and so is the end of the most exciting time on the American pro sports calendar. But before Major League Baseball players are left alone to toil through Summer, two of the great US sports tournaments must find their conclusions: the NBA Finals and the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The NHL’s Stanley Cup playoffs have been a whirlwind this year. En-route to the finals, the Chicago Blackhawks – already twice champions since 2010 – have taken down the higher-seeded Nashville Predators and Anaheim Ducks. Chicago took a shocking game-one series lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning – who last hoisted Lord Stanley’s Cup in 2004 – in this best of seven series.
Games three and four in Chicago are on Monday and Wednesday (June 8 & 10).
The NBA Finals are also upon us. This year’s contest pits LeBron James in his fifth consecutive finals appearance (the Cleveland Cavaliers’ first Finals since 2007) against 2015 league MVP Steph Curry (the Golden State Warriors’s baby faced assassin).
You can capture each shot, block and rebound from this year’s NBA Finals – streamable live from Watch ESPN – and store the video in the format of your choosing with Replay Video Capture.
The NBA Finals games three and four start at 9pm Eastern on Tuesday (June 9) and Thursday (June 11).
