  1. Who is everyone rooting for?

    • I have a very hard time rooting for either of these teams.

      I admit that I am not good at supporting the local teams here in Chicago if Pittsburgh has a team in the same sport. I’ll gladly root for the Bulls, and I like the White Sox as my fall back baseball team. But, the Bears, Cubs, Hawks – no … just no.

      I watched the Hawks game on Sat night out of town with all the other dads of my son’s baseball team. They are all now die hard Hawks fans, of course. I was polite, but I really couldn’t get into it. I also didn’t like that the dad from N. Jersey has completely switched loyalties from the Devils. I asked what he would do if/when he got transferred again. He said he would deal with it when the time comes. Sorry, I can’t just switch my fandom on and off like that. The Pittsburgh teams are engrained in me. Nothing is changing that. Doesn’t make me right and him wrong. Just makes us different.

    • GO PENS !!!!!!!!!!

  2. The Pens.

    • Like a Super Bowl, Stillers are out of the race, eh, can’t and don’t get excited.

      Blackhawks have Burgh ties, though.

      +1 AW

  3. DK: I’ll take a Game 7, please.

  4. No game 7. This ends tonight!

    Parade down State Street on Wednesday.

    Go Hawks!

  5. Excellent news.

    Paul Chryst told Rushel Shell to pound salt!!!


  6. Thoughts during first period:

    1. Amazingly, if the Hawks win, Scotty Bowman will be a part of 13 winning cups!
    2. Even without a healthy spleen, Patrice Bergeron is amazing.
    3. Claude Juilien would be a perfect cast as a German general in a WW II movie.
    4. Say what you will about Jagr, he is one tough 40 something hombre.
    5. Hawks look a little tired here early.
    6 I am going to miss Doc and Edzo over the summer.

  7. Corey Crawford’s been just this side of a mess in this series. But he’s playing his best hockey now & the Hawks have him to thank for still being within striking distance. The Bruins can’t be happy it’s only 1-0.

  8. Clark W. Griswold wears a road Blackhawks jersey in “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.”

  9. There is no bigger farce in all of sports than the Tour De France.

    I’m not buying it NBC, and you shouldn’t be selling it.

  10. John Tortorella is now Vancouver’s head coach. I weep for them. :(

  11. All of the sudden Edzo seems happier.

  12. Beeeautiful.

    Now no more scoring until Boston scores with 30 seconds left in the third.

  13. Wait a minute, Puig won a match at Wimbledon ?

  14. Jaromir Jagr last scored a goal April 21st.

  15. Boston franchises have trouble with game 6′s!

    What a finish going on!

  16. Goodnight Drew. Goodnight Boston.

  17. What a colossal choke.

  18. Who’da thunk it?

  19. Boos rain down on the Commish

  20. An American born player has won the Conn Smythe 3 consecutive years.

  21. Corey Crawford may have just played his way into the Olympics for Canada.

  22. Probably the first time that I’ve seen a goal by a team that pulled their goalie down a goal. Interesting.

  23. Thoughts on the MVP? Kane was a distant #2 to Krejci in scoring. Crawford wins 16, #1 in GA (playing more than 2 games), only trailed Rask in SV%, one shut out.
    In Kane’s own words, “I think [Corey Crawford] might have gotten snubbed, to be honest with you.”

  24. At least Jeremy “Lockout” Jacobs didnt get the Cup.

    May the Boston franchise be cursed for 50 years!!!
