Get Ready for the Stanley Cup With Brilliant ‘Name’ Commercial
“Stanley Cup.” There are no two more powerful words in sports (this side of “Game 7,” of course). The battle to hoist it begins soon and this commercial will have you fired up for it (heck, if the NBA can psyche up fans, then so can the NHL).
Actor Liev Schrieber narrates this commercial, called “Name,” in which we look back on some of the most memorable players who’ve risen to the occasion while skating for Lord Stanley’s Cup.
Who will step up this year? Whose name will go down in history with the likes of Gretzky, Beliveau, Brodeur, Lemieux, Roy and Orr?
The Stanley Cup finals get underway June 3, with the Stanley Cup — and history — on the (blue) line.
