Watch: New Stanley Cup finals commercial asks 'What's in a name?'

Friday May 29th, 2015

The NHL released a new commercial Friday promoting the 2015 Stanley Cup finals. 

The commercial, titled "Name," seeks to answer the question "What's in a name?" by looking back at some of the most memorable players who have been on the the big stage. 

Actor Liev Schreiber narrates the one minute video.

"Your name becomes your signature," Schreiber says. "And it's often made greater by the company it keeps. And for some, a name begins stories. It bonds generations, even feeds rivalries. It can demand immediate respect and inspire unconditional love. Until ultimately your name can become how you're remembered. And once it's engraved, it will never be forgotten."

The winner of the New York Rangers vs. Tampa Bay Lightning series will take on the winner of the Chicago Blackhawks vs. Anaheim Ducks series. Both conference finals have reached a Game 7.
