RE: NHL playoffs
Da Hawks are up 2-0.. ESPN 's Barry Melrose says that they are the most talented team in the game.. That dude rocks.. he is too smooth and cool.. He reminds of some frat guys that I went to college with.

Yes AP. The Hawks should be worried, but I'm picking them to win it again anyway.

I know I saw that too. At the beginning of the playoffs he couldn't stop singing the Hawks praises. Now that they are in the final he thinks the Bruins defense will lockdown all the Hawks offensive weapons. He also predicted the Bruins would win in 7. That would mean they would come to the Madhouse and defeat Chi in a Game 7 winner takes all. I don't see that happening. They need to win in 6 if they want this series. Hawks have only lost 1 home game throughout the playoffs.

Kskate, thanks for the reply and giving me some reason for hope since Barry jumped ship.

Pittsburgh was the top seed but looked exhausted, Boston on the other hand is playing some inspired Hockey, so as the result, Boston Bruins sweeped the series 4-0
Chicago didn't do too bad either, beating LA 4-1, Chicago is the top seed in the western conference and rightfully so, won the conference.

Now, we are down to two teams in the final, 4th seeded Boston Bruins from the east conference and top seeded Chicago Blackhawks from the west conference.

This is for all the marbles, the Stanley Cup!

First game is Wednesday.

I still think Boston will win it, sorry K!

Oh My!
The first game of this best of 7 championship ended in a tie! Into the sudden death overtime we go...

You know I have always questioned this best of 7 business here in the USA, it's just about the only place in the world where championships are decided in a series of games played.

I wonder how our British friends or others think about this?

How bout them Hawks? They take 1-0 lead in the finals against the favored Bruins in triple OT after being outplayed for most of the game.

Kiu,
It's the American Way. The only thing decided by one game is the BCS championships, but even that is going to a playoff soon.

Game 5 goes to the Mighty Blackhawks.. Its nothing better to be back in the Chi watching a game with my lovely daughters who would rather be shopping on the gold coast with their Dad's creditLay Down Laughing card. Kane, Sharp and the rest of the Blackhawk boys are the Truth.. I still wouldn't be surprised if it went 7 games.. hope not..
Hey Kskate, did you hear that a poor Blackhawks fan got so wrapped up in the 1st couple of games that he suffered a stress attack, slight heart attack. Come on, its not that Serious, its just Sport.

No AP I didn't hear that. Yeah people need to calm down if this has become a health issue. I have missed watching the weekend games because I haven't been home, only catching the highlights on Sportscenter. One more game to go. I think the Bruins will rebound tomorrow night. We'll see what happens w/ Bergeron and Toews.

It will be very interesting to see how both players recover from those game 5 injuries.

Kiu,

When will you learn not to pick against me? Big Smile Right now, the boys are driving the cup all over Chicago on the team bus. Just randomly visiting some of the local restaurants and pubs where the Hawk faithful usually gather to watch the games. Clap

They'll be having a parade later this week that will go right past my building downtown. I'll take a picture of the cup on the float and post it for you.

Here is raw footage of the Hawks parade as it went by my building.




This one was taken by someone else and is a better angle.
