It’s Like Hockey Christmas!

The hockey lockout made it seem as if hockey were a hopeless dream. Even those of us that truly believed that hockey would return and save us all from the winter doldrums were eventually grasping at straws and holding onto nothing but faith and hope. Like the children of Springfield hoping to be liberated from Kamp Krusty, we held onto any flicker of light in the distance that held any promise of a hockey season.

"See? I told you hockey would come! Ha-ha! It's gonna bring us food, and water, and smite our enemies!"

“See? I told you hockey would come! Ha-ha! It’s gonna bring us food, and water, and smite our enemies!”

Then hockey returned! We didn’t even have to riot or break storefront windows or burn things in effigy! It returned, and we rejoiced! The season was short, but we didn’t care! We really didn’t care when the Blackhawks started mopping the floor with the competition. The Blackhawks weren’t merely a hometown favorite doing well, they were an international phenomenon making hockey history. Then, as if the return of hockey weren’t enough, we were in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Now we’re in the Stanley Cup finals. It’s as if some Sports Santa Claus brought us all of the presents we could have ever wanted and stuffing them under our lockout hockey Charlie Brown Christmas tree. Like some sort of hockey-themed Christmastime…

…simply magical, right?

Anyway, THE STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS ARE HERE! THE STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS BEGIN TONIGHT! THE STANLEY CUP IS IN THE UNITED CENTER!

"My, this looks like a lovely place to live," said the Stanley Cup.

“My, this looks like a lovely place to live,” said the Stanley Cup.

So, what have we got? We’ve got one helluva match up for this final series. This is the first time the NHL has seen an Original Six Stanley Cup Finals in thirty years. This promises to be a powerhouse game of two legendary teams fighting for the most coveted trophy in sports. This promises to be a great series of games because these are two teams who are really gunning for it; the Blackhawks have a great challenge in front of them. The first of which is Bruins goalie, Tuukka Rask, who was a major reason the Penguins were embarrassed in the previous series. Zdeno Chara is 6′ 9″ of terror on ice, towering over the entire Blackhawks roster and leaving nothing but damage in his wake. The Bruins may not have had the stunning season that the Blackhawks have had, but they’ve got the same drive, passion, and skill the Blackhawks possess and that is not to be taken lightly. However, the Blackhawks are going to be a powerhouse, especially starting the series at the United Center. Kane’s hat trick in the previous series, Hossa’s drive, Bickell’s unyielding determination and undeniable results, and Saad’s thirst for a playoff goal are among the party mix of reasons why the Blackhawks will not allow the Stanley Cup to slip away from Chicago. This is going to be an interesting and wild series, hockey fans, and we’re all dying to see the Stanley Cup return to Chicago.

Bring it on, Boston!

Bring it on, Boston!
