IdBeCrazyIf: Publikwerks: //I want them to win the cup in the Garden

See I know it will go game 7 and the Hawks take the cup, but the Hawks winning it in the Garden would be worth the riots in Boston


It wont go seven because that would be mean.

Mean to the Blackhawk fans. Ask the Leafs how it feels to have their hopes and dream dashed and destroyed right in front of them.

I'd rather it go to game 7 double OT, even if the Hawks loose because it means longer until there's no more Hockey

I dunno, double OT is less about the better team winning and more about fluke goals. I mean, do you want the cup to go down to a fluke goal?

caira: Can someone explain to me why anyone idolises the Original Six?


I can't speak for anyone else, but I wouldn't say I idolize them.  It's just that those teams have a lot more history behind and between them than any of the other teams, and I find that kind of neat.

Dusk-You-n-Me: I came into work to find the Blackhawks banner in my cubicle, undisturbed for four years, turned backwards. Bring on the series.

Good luck to your boys and may it be a fun series.

Tradition and because they have the best uniforms in the NHL.

If a Cup finals series goes to overtime in game 7, doesn't that pretty much mean the teams are evenly matched and any attempt to determine which one is better is going to be a crap shoot no matter what?

IdBeCrazyIf: HAH, glad Im not the only one who does that. Our power went out during Game 3 of the Hawks vs Detroit and I say on my porch watching it on my phone until the power finally came on midway through the third.


Living in Bucktown, I'm kind of thinking of going to a bar to watch that's near enough to the UC that if the power goes out, in all likelihood the UC power will have also gone out.

I love that Chicago does that. I happened to be in the city during the 2010 SCF against the Flyers and it was great to see the signs and support everywhere.

Bruins in...

Actually, never mind.   I thought we were a first round exit the way we played all through March, so being here at all is gravy.   I thought the Leafs would be somewhat easy, and that went 7.   The Rangers had me worried, and we got through them.   Few if any gave us a scrap of a chance against the Pens, and we absolutely dismantled them.

Hawks don't particularly worry me, but at this point if the B's get swept in the finals, I wouldn't be surprised at all.  You never know what's going to happen, so I'll just gonna sit back and relax, and enjoy the hockey.

Off to charge all electronics...


Yeah, that would really suck if a derecho farked up game 1.

Blow the roof off of my house - see if I give a shiat - but please, don't delay game 1!

Today's word is "derecho." "Derecho."

There's only one thing I'm rooting for in this series: 7 games of good hockey. That's it. I'm OK with either team winning.*

*- subject to change if one team does something extra dirty tonight

Hawks in 7.
7 because more hockey.
Hawks because Jeremy Jacobs cost us half a season.

2013-06-12 12:12:16 PM  
Both teams definitely deserve to be in the Finals. No one (other than a certain butthurt Red Wings fan) could deny that. I have a lot of respect for both teams for what they've accomplished this year. This series looks like it's going to be pretty damn epic.

I'm thinking we'll see some waterspouts here this evening. Northerly and westerly winds have nothing to stop them across the lake, so we get ridiculous wind storms here. Our front door blew off a couple of weeks ago and waves got to occasional 18'. The futurecast for SWMI is scary.

Go Hawks!

Yeah, they are predicting bad things for north central Indiana as well, and I gotta drive essentially with the storm as I head out of Chicago eventually time depending

My son has accurately predicted the Cup winner 3 out of the past 4 years, almost nailed it last year by claiming the Devils. I ask him pre-season too, which makes it even more amazing.

This year he said, "Bruins....I mean, the Blackhawks. Crap, I just don't know!" I take this to mean a game 7 quadruple OT fluke goal win.

hockeyfarker: I guess I'm cheering for the refs. Let's just have a fair game!


Chris Rooney and Brad Watson will be the referees. Shane Heyer and Brian Murphy will be the linesmen. I have no strong opinions on them, so hopefully they stay out of the way and let the teams play.
